Its been a while since we got hit with a severe snow storm. However, regardless of the severity of the storm New York City homeowners have a duty and a responsibility to remove snow and ice from the city sidewalk in front of their homes or face fines and or violations.

NYC Homeowners must remove and clean snow and ice within 4 hours after the snow has stopped falling or by 11:00 am if the snow has not stopped falling after 9:00 pm of the previous evening.

Serious injuries occur as a result of defective NYC sidewalks. It is not immediately clear who the responsible party is and who is at fault for the injury a person may sustain as a result of the defective sidewalk.

These injuries are usually referred to as Trip and Fall accidents. Section 7-210 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York places the duty to maintain the sidewalk on the real property owner.

However, this subdivision does not apply to one-two or three family homes that are in whole or in part owner occupied and used exclusively for residential purposes. Multiple parties may be responsible to the injured party, which may include the property owner, the City of New York as well as others who control or maintain the real property.

An attorney who handles these types of claims is best able to advise an injured party as to their rights including filing the necessary notice requirements with the City of New York.

In NYS many construction workers are injured as a result of a fall from a height, while in the course of their employment. Their injuries are covered under Section 240 of the NYS Labor Law also commonly referred to as the "Scaffolding Law".

Basically, the law states that workers who perform work at heights, must kept safe from injuries. The responsible parties for workers safety are:
the Construction Company, the Contractor and or Sub-Contractor, who are working on the property, as well as the Property Owner.

Safety measures must be adhered to at all times.

If a worker is injured as a result of a fall and it is proven that the proper safety measures necessary to keep the worker safe were not followed by the responsible parties, then they will be held accountable for the injuries sustained by the worker.
