Property owners in New York are supposed to maintain a safe environment for their employees, their customers and other lawful entrants. The failure to do so is called property negligence, and it could range from the failure to uphold reasonable standards for care and upkeep to the failure to address hazardous conditions. Owners may be guilty of negligence if they do not meet building codes, public safety laws and generally accepted business practices.

Winter in New York can be an unforgiving season. The temperatures drop incredibly low, the streets become slick with ice and sidewalks may be nearly impossible to navigate right after a storm.

New York has its own laws regarding dog bites, but the following are some of the basic rules. First of all, canine professionals, including dog trainers, dog groomers and veterinarians, are not eligible for compensation because the risk of a bite comes with their job. Those who trespass on a property, provoke the dog, tease it or attack its owner cannot qualify if they are bitten.
