Do I Have a Case if I Fall on an Icy Sidewalk in the Brooklyn?
If you’re injured as a result of a slip and fall on an icy sidewalk, you might have a case that will most likely not be against the municipality that owns the sidewalk.
Each municipality requires that abutting landowners clear their sidewalks within a certain amount of time after a snowfall.
If they take too long to clear the sidewalks and ice forms as a result of melting snow, the abutting landowner could be liable.
