If the City of New York has received prior written notice of a cracked sidewalk, they can be held financially liable for injuries sustained as a result of a trip and fall. In addition, the owners of commercial buildings are also responsible for safe maintenance of sidewalks in front of their property.
● Slippery Sidewalk
New York City property owners are required to shovel snow and pour salt on sidewalk ice as necessary after a storm to prevent pedestrian slip and fall accidents. A landlord’s failure to cure hazardous conditions can give rise to liability for any injuries sustained in a fall.
● Missing Sidewalk
Construction sites and sidewalk dead-ends often pose a significant hazard to pedestrians. A person walking along a sidewalk that abruptly ends may need to navigate uneven terrain.
● Debris on Sidewalk
When a pedestrian trips on sidewalk debris, an investigation into the source of the debris should be made. In addition, a sidewalk fall lawyer should be consulted to determine which parties may be financially responsible for injuries sustained.
