Dangerous Sidewalks

Property owners, managers and businesses are obligated to ensure that sidewalks in front of their buildings are repaired in a timely way and free of hazardous conditions. When they do not meet their obligations, they may be held liable for any injuries that occur. Among the many hazards that exist are:

  • Sidewalk gratings
  • Flagstones and bricks
  • Cracks and uneven pavement
  • Inadequate snow and ice removal
  • Defective access panels and sidewalk vaults

We also assist clients with slip-and-fall accidents, providing them with caring representation and seeking maximum compensation for injuries sustained on dangerous or defective premises or because of inadequate security. We use our experience and knowledge to win substantial compensation for our clients in such matters. We act quickly in these cases, because property owners often repair a dangerous condition after an injury occurs. Let us go to work for you.
