Premises Liability

The law requires property owners to keep their property in a reasonably safe condition for the safety of those who use it. Thus, snow must be shoveled after a snowfall; sidewalks must be repaired after the pavement breaks; leaks must be fixed in a timely manner; and wet floors must be mopped once a spill occurs.

Property owners are also required to comply with the New York City Building Codes. Accidents caused by a property owner’s failure to properly comply with the Building Codes can result in the property owner being found liable for the injury.
