Who Is Responsible For Sidewalk Injuries In New York City?

In New York City, the sidewalk is public property that is available to everyone. However, the day-to-day responsibility for keeping the sidewalks clear and safe for pedestrians is with the owner of the adjacent property. Even with clarity about the law, these types of injury lawsuits are not cut and dry.

At MJP Injury Law, we have an aggressive team of sidewalk injury lawyers ready to get to work for you. We’ve fought for injured people across New York and the Bronx; we’ve taken the fight to the insurance companies and made our client’s voices heard. We hold property owners responsible for their failures to protect you.

The Major Injury Risks Of Sidewalk Falls

Just walk down any street in New York, and you will see plenty of potential tripping and falling hazards. Anything from an icy sidewalk in the winter to garbage left in the middle of the sidewalk to resilient weeds fighting up through the cement can be a hazard. These falls can lead to injuries like:

  • Concussions
  • Bruises
  • Broken bones
  • Puncture wounds from sharp debris
  • Teeth damage

There are many complications to a fall. Falling over something, falling on something, or falling into something can all cause different types of injury. No matter who is ultimately at fault, we will pursue your claim relentlessly to get you the compensation you deserve.

Determination To Recover Damages

The insurance company – or whatever party fights your claim – will do a lot of work to minimize what you can recover. But we will hold pursue the damages you deserve, which can include:

  • Lost wages
  • Initial treatment
  • Pain and suffering
  • Injury rehab
  • Medical imaging

More than that, however, we will not hold back in our pursuit of what you deserve.
