Bader & Yakaitis, LLP specializes in accident cases resulting from defective sidewalks. Under New York law, many owners of buildings, both commercial and residential, have a duty to maintain sidewalks abutting their property in a reasonably safe condition. This responsibility includes installing, constructing, repaving, repairing cracked, broken or damaged sidewalks and the negligent failure to remove snow, ice or other material from the sidewalk. The law regulating sidewalks, the New York City Administrative Code, is a complex statute that requires the expertise of a law firm possessing the recourses to litigate against powerful landowners. Bader and Yakaitis, LLP has the experience, reputation, and resources to make land owners pay for failing to maintain their properties in a reasonably safe condition. If a landowner violates the New York City regulation, and if that violation is a substantial factor in causing your injury, the land owner is liable to pay damages to compensate you for your pain suffering, medical bills, and lost wages.
