Snow & Ice Accidents in the Bronx | What You Should Know

There are few things worse than walking down the road, only to slip and fall on snow or ice that should have been removed long ago. Unfortunately, these accidents can frequently cause very serious injuries, many of which can affect an individual for years to come, or even permanently. Please continue reading and speak with our experienced Bronx personal injury lawyer to learn more about snow & ice accidents and how we can help if you’ve been hurt in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How long do property owners in NYC have to remove snow?

In New York City, in many cases, property owners will only have four hours from the end of a snowfall to have the snow removed, as long as the snow stops during daylight hours between 7:00 a.m. and 4:59 p.m. When a property owner recognizes that there is an unsafe condition present, yet the property owner fails to take action to remove the unsafe condition in a timely fashion, thereby injuring another party as a result, there is a very good chance that the wrongly injured individual will have a valid premises liability claim.

What can I sue for when I file a premises liability claim?

People sue for two types of damages in premises liability claims: economic damages and non-economic damages. Essentially, economic damages cover the cost of tangible financial damages, such as surgeries, overnight stays in hospitals, in-home care, and more. Non-economic damages cover damages that cannot be measured, though are still very real. Non-economic damages cover pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, disfigurement, and more.

How long will I have to file a premises liability lawsuit in the Bronx?

When someone is injured in an accident, they will have to be very careful about how long they will wait to file their personal injury claim. This is because every state has a statute of limitations in place when it comes to personal injury claims. In most cases, the statute of limitations for premises liability claims in New York State is three years, meaning you will have to sue the liable property owner within three years of the date of your accident.
