I slipped and fell on ice. Can I sue?

If you fall on ice on a sidewalk, you might be able to receive compensation.  Find out what you need to know.If you were injured due to a slip and fall on ice, you may have a case. This winter was especially brutal and we have been getting many calls from people throughout Long Island who were injured on ice.

Sidewalk Owners Need Reasonable Notice to Clear Ice

Residents, business and municipalities have an obligation to keep sidewalks, walkways and parking lots clean and safe for pedestrians. However, they are given reasonable time to clear their property. So it is very difficult to sue someone for a fall while there is a snowstorm occurring or just a few hours after.

The best way to determine if you have a case is to give our lawyers a call to discuss the specific circumstances surrounding your fall. We provide free consultations to make sure all your questions are answered and let you know your legal options. It is important to call as soon as possible, especially if you fell on municipal property, as there are strict time constraints.
