This past weekend the New York area was hit by a surprise snowfall that left wintry conditions and snow and ice on the ground. Even though the day time temperatures were for the most part at or above the freezing mark, there were icy sidewalks and roadways. It is not uncommon for black ice to form when the ground is wet and the temperature is close to freezing. Property owners are responsible for maintaining their property in a safe condition. Owners of property in the City of New York, and most surrounding suburbs, must maintain the sidewalks as well and keep them free of ice, black ice, and snow. Black ice is a major cause of slip and fall accidents. If you have slipped and fallen on black ice, ice, or snow, and injured yourself, you should contact a NY attorney or lawyer that handles slip and fall snow and ice cases.
