I tripped and fell on a tree stump, broken sidewalk or tree debris that resulted from Hurricane Sandy. Can I sue the homeowner?

While Hurricane Sandy was an unforeseen act of nature, depending on when your injury occurred, you may still be able to collect monetary damages.

Certainly in the days following the storm, there were many fallen trees, piles of garbage, debris and broken sidewalks throughout Long Island and New York City that couldn’t instantly be fixed.   However, if you were injured a week or two after the storm because a homeowner still hadn’t properly cleared tree debris and repaired any resulting sidewalk damage, then you may have a case.
