Sidewalk Accidents

Sidewalks are utilized by pedestrians of all ages along streets throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, countless people are hurt every year in slip and fall accidents on dangerous sidewalks. Some of the most common hazards include, but are not limited to:

  • Broken or Uneven Sidewalks
  • Building, Safety, or Municipal Code Violations
  • Debris on Sidewalk
  • Defective Repairs
  • Faulty Construction
  • Holes or Cracks
  • Poor Lighting
  • Potholes
  • Protruding Objects Along the Sidewalk
  • Snow, Ice, or Water Accumulation

People may suffer soft tissue injuries such as sprains or strains or broken bones because of dangerous sidewalks. More devastating falls can cause head, neck, or spinal cord injuries that lead to substantial medical expenses and significant lost wages.

These types of cases can be incredibly complex because there are different responsibilities for different property owners in Pennsylvania. Private homeowners, public businesses, and government entities all have differing duties to repair dangerous conditions, but all these parties may be held liable in certain cases in which defects were plainly obvious and no effort was made to warn innocent people.

If you were injured in an accident on a sidewalk, you will likely be trying to obtain compensation from the property owner’s insurance company. You should proceed with extreme caution if you are contacted by any representative of the insurance company. While the person on the phone may say the company is concerned and express commitment to helping you pay your bills, any admission you make about your own negligence or doubts you express about the severity of your injury can lead to the insurance company declining to pay you anything at all.
