Sidewalk Accident Lawyers

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

When sidewalk defects aren’t repaired by New York, bad things happen. A person may either slip and fall or trip and fall while walking on a New York sidewalk. A sidewalk accident in categorized under premise liability. Premise liability occurs when an injury happens because of a defective or unsafe condition on someone’s property.

Where you injured on a New York sidewalk? Contact us immediately. You shouldn’t have to fight for money while you’re trying to recover from your injuries.

Why Sidewalk Accidents Happen

When a person slips, trips or falls on a New York sidewalk, it’s probably not because nothing was there. New York sidewalks are prone to developing dangerous and sometimes deadly conditions such as potholes and cracks. Water may seem into the concrete during winter or spring months then freeze underneath the concrete and force it to rise. The sidewalk becomes broken, uneven, or cracked. Maintenance workers don’t always repair sidewalks in a timely manner.

Premise Liability Claim

A successful premise liability claim requires a plaintiff to prove the owner of the property was at fault. They must prove:

• The property owner created the sidewalk condition
• The property owner knew the sidewalk condition existed and negligently failed to correct. To be negligent in a personal injury lawsuit means the property owner failed to act as another property owner would in the same or similar situation. For instance, if another municipality would have fixed the side walk New York City negligently failed to repair the sidewalk.
• The dangerous sidewalk existed for so long the property owner should have discovered and corrected it prior to the pedestrian slipping, tripping or falling

If you or a loved one was injured on a New York sidewalk, you may have a personal injury case and obtain money. Many times New York may try to shift the blame for the dangerous sidewalk on someone else. We won’t be fooled. We’ll investigate your New York sidewalk accident and determine the responsible party or parties.

Types of Complications that can Arise from a New York Sidewalk Accident Claim
The laws in New York allow some cities to determine who is responsible for the defective sidewalk. For example, New York City requires an owner of a property abutting the sidewalk to keep it in reasonably safe condition. This means the city may shift the blame for their negligence to another property owner. This can happen when:

• The ice- or snow-covered sidewalk borders property owned by a private or commercial landowner. The pedestrian fell or slipped on the other landowner’s property.
• The sidewalk defect in any municipal structure such as a public park or recreational area bordered another property owner’s land
• A pedestrian slipped, tripped or fell or a sidewalk with bordering property that’s one- to three-family home that’s owner occupied. The residents used the property in whole or in part.

Suing New York for Your Sidewalk Accident

If New York is responsible for a sidewalk accident, a person is required to:
• File a “Notice of Claim” with the municipality after the accident.
• The claim must include facts such as information on how, when and where the accident happened
• The claim must filed within 90 days of the accident

Contact Us Immediately for Help with Your New York Sidewalk Accident Claim

Suing New York to recover damages is complicated because of the various rules involved. For instance, to sue New York City for an injury caused by their sidewalk, a person must prove it had prior written notice of the defect. They must have received notice at least 15 days prior to the person’s injury.
