Liability is in the Hands of Property Owners!

Living in the town of Oyster Bay, and Long Island in general, with often snowy, sometimes icy conditions, sidewalk and street cleaning is a vital aspect of home and property maintenance.

When sidewalks and walkways fall into disrepair or bear unwanted hazards and obstructions, property owners and occupants are directly liable, NOT the town of Oyster Bay!

According to local statutes, each owner or occupant of a home, any type of building, vacant lot, or property in general, must keep the sidewalk in the front of their property free from any and all obstructions. This means cleaning up snow, picking up trash and other hazards in a timely manner.

Direct Liability

In the event an individual is injured as a result of the property owner’s failure to remedy or repair an obstruction to the sidewalk or street, they are directly liable for any damages suffered by the victim - but its on you to contact an attorney and file a claim!

If you experienced a slip and fall or trip and fall accident due to such a situation, contact the Law Offices of Levine & Wiss today! Don’t delay, every day matters in a personal injury claim.

Compliance and Repair Orders

Over time it's no secret that sidewalks and walkways degrade, especially in Oyster Bay and other towns across Long Island, an area that experiences the best and worst of all four seasons. The local town board may require that the owners of said land perform the necessary repairs, at their own expense.

Failure to comply not only puts them in direct liability if an individual were to suffer injuries as a result of hazards, but also may result in certain grievances and filings made from the local government.
