PROVING A SIDEWALK ACCIDENT CLAIM
Proving a sidewalk accident claim is not always easy. You and your New York City & Westchester County sidewalk accidents lawyer will have to gather and present evidence to demonstrate the following:
- The property owner either knew or should have known about the unsafe sidewalk conditions.
- The property owner failed to take action to fix the unsafe property conditions.
- You were injured because of the unsafe sidewalk conditions.
- You sustained significant damages as a result of the unsafe sidewalk conditions.
SNOW REMOVAL LAWS IN NEW YORK CITY & WESTCHESTER COUNTY
You should understand that in the snowy and icy winter months, each town in Westchester County has ordinances in place regarding snow removal. In many cases, people are required to remove snow from the sidewalk adjacent to their homes within a certain amount of time. If they fail to do so and someone is injured on their sidewalk in a slip and fall accident, they will most likely be considered liable in a personal injury claim. This is why it is so imperative that you know the snow removal laws in your town and that you accurately document the time your accident occurred if you were injured on a snowy or icy sidewalk.

José Báez is an excellent Attorney. He helped me through one of the toughest times in my life. He gave me support and was very professional and of high quality. José was always accessible and always returns my calls without delay. I just can’t say enough about José Báez. Anybody who’s been injured in a truck accident, or any other accident should definitely hire José Báez. I strongly recommend Mr. Báez.

Not only have I had the pleasure of working alongside Jose, but I’ve also been on the receiving end of his handling of the transference of my father’s estate. Jose and the Baez Legal Group demonstrated a kind of versatility, accountability, and dedication rarely seen outside of large international law firms. He handles a wide variety of cases with seeming ease, often surprising both his clients and I with the scope of his knowledge of different legal disciplines. Jose is not one of the myriads of lawyers that always seem too busy to allocate the proper amount of care and time to their clients; in fact, he was often in the habit of reaching out first, even if just to see how we’re doing. Should you wish to receive an unprecedented amount of excellence in the handling of your case, the Baez Legal Group should be your first and only resort.
