Hurt Because Of An Unmaintained Sidewalk?
New Yorkers understand how important sidewalks are. There are few places in our country where sidewalks play such a vital role in day-to-day life. But when an unmaintained sidewalk sends you to the hospital, your life can come to a screeching halt.
A fall on the sidewalk often leads to much more than just a scraped knee. Falling on sidewalks can lead to head trauma, spinal cord damage, serious soft tissue damage and other life-changing injuries.

We have more than 75 years of experience with New York personal injury law, and our attorneys are dedicated to using the most sophisticated legal techniques and medical technology to prove your case.
Sidewalk Liability Is Complicated
New York requires most commercial property owners to maintain their sidewalks. This includes more than just clearing ice and snow. In some cases, commercial property owners are also responsible for cracked sidewalks, broken grating and other damage to the walkway. But not every sidewalk is owned by a private citizen or business, and some aspects of the sidewalk are part of city infrastructure. Determining who is responsible for sidewalk maintenance becomes complicated.
Our lawyers can help you determine if a sidewalk defect caused your fall and if you are eligible for a personal injury suit. Their knowledge can sort out who is responsible for the sidewalk in question and determine the appropriate next steps.
