Street and Sidewalk Injuries

Street and Sidewalk Injuries

The sidewalks and streets of New York are among the most dangerous in the world for pedestrians and bicyclists. Despite laws that make it clear that the city and owners of private property are responsible for keeping sidewalks and parking lots under good repair, hundreds of people are injured every year after slipping on ice and snow or tripping over an un-repaired crack.

If you have been seriously injured on a street or sidewalk anywhere in the New York City metropolitan region, you may be entitled to collect money damages for your medical expenses and financial losses. The trial attorneys of Kahn Gordon Timko & Rodriques P.C., have been helping victims of negligence collect full and fair money damages since we formed our current firm in 1998. Our senior partners have been recognized as leading personal injury litigation attorneys for more than 50 years.

In a Sidewalk Fall Injury Case, Your Lawyer Must Show Clear Damages

You will have to show that the property owner was clearly negligent by allowing a hazardous condition to exist. Premises liability cases such as sidewalk falls are fact-driven cases. You should immediately take photographs and record the facts surrounding the accident, including the date, time and the unsafe condition of the street or sidewalk. It is critically important that you gather information and eyewitness accounts by anybody who may have seen the accident occur. Your attorney will use your report as the basis for our own thorough investigation and reconstruction of the accident.
