What You Should Know About Sidewalk Accidents in Manhattan

There are few things more jarring than simply walking along to your destination when suddenly, you encounter a safety hazard, and before you know it, you’re falling. Unfortunately, this happens more often than you may think. Please continue reading and reach out to our Manhattan slip and fall lawyer to learn more about sidewalk accidents in Manhattan and how our firm can assist you if you’ve been wrongfully hurt in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most frequent causes of sidewalk accidents?

Sidewalk accidents can happen for a multitude of reasons. Sometimes, a person will simply trip over themselves and have a fall. Unfortunately, in many cases, sidewalk accidents are entirely preventable and caused by negligence, typically on the part of the property owner. Property owners are responsible for ensuring their sidewalks are safe, and when they fail to do so, serious slip or trip and fall accidents can happen. Some of the most common causes of sidewalk accidents are uneven sidewalks, debris left on the sidewalk, standing water, snow/ice left uncleared, and more. If a condition was preventable and the property owner failed to clear it away and you were injured, you will most likely have a valid personal injury claim.

How do I prove a personal injury claim?

To prove a personal injury claim, you and your Manhattan slip and fall lawyer will have to gather and present evidence to prove you were injured as a direct result of a property owner’s negligence. Some of the most useful types of evidence include pictures of the unsafe sidewalk conditions, surveillance footage of the accident happening, witness testimony, medical documents, and more.

What damages are recoverable in a sidewalk accident claim?

As long as you can satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim, you should recover financial compensation to help you with the economic and non-economic damages you’ve sustained as a result of your accident. Economic damages can help compensate you for your lost wages and medical bills, while non-economic damages can compensate you for the pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and the loss of enjoyment of life your accident caused. If you have any further questions about sidewalk accident claims or you are ready to get stated, simply contact our firm today.
