After hurricane Sandy pounded NY and destroyed lives and lots of property, New York was again walloped with a massive snowstorm just 11 days later. What happens if you slip and fall during a snowstorm on a path that was already cleared by the property owner?

Can you bring a lawsuit for your injuries?

Can you recover compensation for the homeowner or property owner not clearing a path properly? 

To answer that question, there are many other questions that must be answered.

Did the property owner, shovel or snow plow the path?

  • How much snow had accumulated then? 
  • Was it still snowing? 
  • What was the temperature?
  • Had the snow melted then froze again?
  • Was there black ice present?
  • Did you contribute to your own accident?
