A New York City Police Officer fractured his left ankle necessitating surgery when he slipped on snow and old ice after exiting his department vehicle. The Officer attempted to gain access to the sidewalk from his parking spot when he encountered a mound of snow on the sidewalk. The Officer slipped on the snow and sustained the serious injury. The Officer returned to full-duty after a lengthy rehabilitation. DCD sued the owner of the property pursuant to GML §205-e alleging the property owner violated Section 7-210(a)(b) of the New York City Administrative Code in failing to keep the public sidewalk abutting the building free from ice and snow. During a pre-trial conference, the case settled for $275,000.
