In New York City, the Administrative Code confers responsibility for sidewalk safety on the adjacent businesses, which are required to be insured for these losses. In certain exceptions, the City as a municipal entity retains responsibility, and often if can be the responsibility of a State or Federal agency. These cases should not be complicated, but they are: they have time-sensitive and very technical requirements, which require adept handling.

My office aggressively pursues compensation for injuries due to negligence on City, State or commercial property.
