Who is liable if I slip and fall or trip and fall on a sidewalk?

This entry was posted by .

The exact location of the sidewalk accident will determine who may be held liable for injuries and your medical bills. The city is responsible for some trips on sidewalks, but the walkways in front of businesses are often the responsibility of the building owners or businesses. Under New York Administration Code 19-152, property owners are often required to install, maintain and repair sidewalks adjourning their premises. They must monitor the quality of the sidewalk and take action when repairs are needed. Property owners must also keep the adjoining sidewalk clear of snow and ice, in many cases.
