Every year, thousands of pedestrians are injured due to unsafe sidewalks in New York. Property owners, business owners and landlords should clear sidewalks and parking lots which are adjacent to their property or belong to their business. Improper maintenance of sidewalks can lead to injuries. If this occurred due to carelessness of others, then the injured person can seek compensation for medical costs and other expenses.
Situations that can lead to slip and fall injuries include:
- Slippery sidewalks with ice or snow
- Uneven sidewalks
- Obstructed sidewalks
- Cracked sidewalks
- Improper slopes
- Poorly installed grates
- Sidewalks with holes in them
- Exposed tree roots
If an owner fails to maintain sidewalks or place a notice about unsafe conditions, then he may be liable for the injuries suffered by pedestrians.
