Sidewalk defects can pose serious dangers for pedestrians. Cracks, potholes, uneven surfaces and other hazards can result in slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents, which often lead to head injuries, back injuries and other serious injuries.

Accidents On Sidewalks Owned By Cities
Injury claims on sidewalks owned by cities are difficult to prove and require skilled legal guidance. In order to prevail in a municipal sidewalk defect case, the plaintiff must prove that:
- The defect was present
- The city knew about the defect
- The city failed to take measures to repair the defect
- The defect was the sole cause of the accident
In many cases, the city will argue that the injured party was partly or completely responsible for the accident. Our lawyers know how to find the facts in sidewalk injury cases. We will conduct a thorough investigation of the accident to establish liability. We are committed to helping sidewalk accident injury victims recover full and fair compensation for their losses.
