Pursue Justice for Your Sidewalk Injury

New York is a city filled with pedestrians who walk to work, their home, and social gatherings. Walking is generally a healthy thing to do, but sometimes there are unforeseen dangers lurking on the city sidewalks. Negligent property owners who do not maintain their sidewalks can cause injury to unsuspecting passers-by. If you were hurt in a slip and fall accident or trip and fall accident on a sidewalk, you should contact one of the Brooklyn premises liability attorneys at Belushin Law Firm to discuss filing a claim.

Your initial consultation is absolutely free.

Hold the Right Party Accountable

In Brooklyn, some of the sidewalks are publicly owned, such as the ones in major tourist areas or in public parks. But most sidewalks in the city are owned by private property owners, who have a responsibility to maintain them. When a private property owner has a sidewalk on their property, they must take all reasonable measures to ensure that the sidewalk is safe for the public.

The New York Department of Transportation makes periodic inspections of all sidewalks and issues citations to negligent property owners. However, many property owners ignore warnings from the city as well as warnings from pedestrians. A failure to respond to the notification of a defect or dangerous condition in a sidewalk is negligent behavior. If you were injured because of a property owner’s negligent failure to maintain a safe walkway, you should consider filing a lawsuit so that you can be compensated for your injuries.

Serious Advocacy for Serious Injuries

A slip and fall accident on a sidewalk in Brooklyn or any other city or town can be very dangerous. Slip and fall accidents don’t sound very scary, but when a person’s body strikes the ground, especially pavement, there can be painful and permanent injuries. Victims of trip-and-fall sidewalk accidents can suffer broken bones, abrasions and lacerations, and serious muscular injuries. The parts of the body that collide with the defective sidewalk are generally the most susceptible to damage, and they usually include hands, wrists, arms, knees, and hips

In some serious fall accidents, the victim may suffer a head injury, which can cause brain damage or facial disfigurement. All of these injuries require extensive rehabilitation, including hospital stays, pain medication, surgical intervention, and physical or chiropractic therapy. When serious injuries are caused by a property owner’s negligent maintenance of their sidewalk, the victim has the right to sue the property owner for the cost of their medical care and compensation for their pain and suffering.
