When Is a Property Owner Responsible for A Sidewalk Accident Injury?
Maintenance to avoid sidewalk related accidents, is to ensure the safety of pedestrians as they move from place to place throughout New York City and surrounding areas. A property owner must fix and otherwise maintain broken sidewalks, in front of their homes or businesses, to ensure that they are not cracked, broken, or otherwise defective. These pedestrian sidewalks must also must be free from oily or other slippery chemical substances, which must be immediately cleaned or adequately marked. Sidewalk and walkway areas are to be maintained by the property owner, and must be well-lit, secure, and properly maintained. When a sidewalk or other walkway on a property is not maintained in a safe condition, the property owner is responsible for the injuries sustained as a result of perhaps, a slippery substance, a broken or missing piece of concrete, obstructions, improper lighting, negligent sidewalk or walkway design, failing to properly clean snow and ice, and just about any other dangerous condition brought about through the property owners negligence and failure to repair the defective and dangerous sidewalk or walkway condition. If you or a family member has been injured due to a sidewalk related accident, because property owners did not meet their obligations to ensure your safety when they knew or should have known that a dangerous condition existed on the sidewalk or walkway, and they failed to correct it, they are liable for the injuries that you sustained due to the defective or otherwise improperly maintained sidewalk. The Brooklyn law firm of Bisogno & Meyerson, LLP can help you receive the compensation you need for your medical expenses, loss of income and loss of future earning capacity, pain and suffering, and more, for the sidewalk related injuries. Slipping and falling on an icy outdoor sidewalk or walkway, or on a slippery wet spot, for example, at a fruit stand, or tripping over uneven or broken sidewalk are among the most common types of sidewalk related premises liability accidents. In fact, sidewalk related accidents are among the leading causes of injury, and are particularly dangerous for the elderly.

Additional Consideration under New York’s Labor Laws
New York provides additional protection for construction area fall workers under several sections of the State Labor Laws. These include: N.Y. LAB. LAW § 200 : NY Code – Section 200: General duty to protect health and safety of employees; enforcement may make a property owner or contractor liable for an injury that occurred as a result of a hazardous condition of which they were aware or should have been aware. Section 240, called the “scaffold law,” states that a contractor or property owner (excluding owners of single- or two-family private homes not in direct control of the work being performed) is responsible for providing proper and non-defective safety devices to protect workers who perform their jobs from an elevated position. Section 241-6 states that property owners and, in some cases, general contractors are responsible for providing a safe working environment, including safety equipment, and cannot delegate that responsibility. As your attorneys, we can explain your construction area fall area fall options in detail. We are here to help you, whether you were injured as a construction area fall worker or as a visitor to a construction area fall site.
