Sidewalk Injuries and Premises Liability
Most sidewalk injuries fall under premises liability. This means that these injuries are caused by hazardous conditions that are present on the property. Property owners are responsible for keeping their property safe for all visitors. Sidewalk injuries, are often caused by hazardous conditions that arise from owner’s negligence. If there is enough evidence to prove that the property owner (a business, an individual, or the city) is guilty, he/she will be held responsible, and an injured person will get a compensation. Below are some examples of potentially hazardous and negligent conditions on a sidewalk:
- slippery or wet sidewalk
- uneven sidewalk (pavement)
- cracks and concealed holes on a sidewalk
- standing water
- open excavations
- insufficient lightning
If you have been injured on a sidewalk because of property owner’s negligence, contact an experienced sidewalk injury attorney as soon as possible. Collect and preserve any evidence. It is not unusual for owners of the property to repair the sidewalk or try to conceal the evidence after an accident. Most sidewalk injuries are caused by a bad fall. If you slip and fall, trip and fall, step and fall, stumble and fall, and have not seen a warning sign, you may be eligible to get a compensation from the property owner. Do not hesitate to contact Boyko & Associates law firm if your injury falls under one of the categories above. Our sidewalk injury attorney will review your case for free! To note, although owners of commercial and residential properties are required by law to keep their buildings and sidewalks safe, it is necessary to remember that pedestrians are responsible for their safety, as well. Courts expect that they avoid dangerous conditions, such as holes, cracks, unseen ice, etc. That is why sidewalk injuries are often considered partly the fault of a person who has been injured. Because of this general perception, it is crucial that you should contact a professional attorney and take the following steps:
- avoid accusing the property owner;
- avoid contacting your insurance company (contact a lawyer first);
- write down names and contact information of witnesses (if any);
- take several photos of a scene (if possible);
- save your footwear and clothes, and any other evidence.
To sum up, act wise and collect as much information as possible before the evidence is destroyed or covered.
