Sidewalk accidents can deal life-changing injuries

Walking along the sidewalk is one of the simplest acts, and it is something we take for granted. In fact, no one really even thinks about safely walking along a sidewalk anymore. It is just part of life. But not every sidewalk is safe, and as such, some people suffer terrible injuries when they are just going about their life. Unsafe sidewalks can cause the lives of innocent people to change forever.

Sidewalks will erode and break down over time. This can lead to cracks in the sidewalk that are unsafe, and if people step on these cracks, they could break their ankle or fall over and injure themselves in other ways.Ā Furthermore, sidewalks may not be properly tended to by the businesses or buildings they are in front of. Imagine a snowy, icy day and a shop owner fails to clear the slippery sidewalk in front of his or her store. This would be a dangerous condition, and one the shop owner should address. If someone slipped and fell on the ice, the victim would have a strong case to make.

People can also fall victim to injury on sidewalks due to construction that is being done on or near the sidewalk. Falling debris can hit people on the sidewalk too. There are many different reasons that the sidewalk could be the setting of a premises liability case.

At Ross & Hill, we have extensive experience helping people in New York who have suffered tremendous harm due to a dangerous sidewalk.
