SIDEWALK, CROSSWALK AND PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS
Some of New York’s streets are so poorly maintained that city lawmakers have devised strategies to minimize litigation costs resulting from trip- or slip-and-fall accidents. These provisions either shift the responsibility for defective sidewalks to nearby private property owners or make it more difficult for accident victims to file claims against New York City.
If you’ve suffered a sidewalk ice injury or been hurt because of an uneven sidewalk, the pedestrian accident lawyers at Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP, can help you pursue compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP, represents people who have been injured in New York City from poorly maintained sidewalks. While many people, including some lawyers, see slip-and-fall accident cases as simple, run-of-the-mill type claims, in reality many of them are not. This is especially true when the accident occurs on a city street or sidewalk.
WE HOLD AT-FAULT PARTIES ACCOUNTABLE FOR SIDEWALK ACCIDENTS IN NYC
In 2003, laws went into place in New York City shifting the responsibility for premises liability accidents onto private property owners. If you or your loved one was injured in a sidewalk accident, do not trust just any law firm to protect your rights. The right attorney should have the resources to conduct a thorough investigation focused on proving fault, even when liability is initially unclear.
At Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP, our partners each have more than 25 years of experience handling pedestrian accident claims throughout New York. We know the right experts to consult, including engineers. We work with them to understand if accidents could have been prevented if the sidewalks were properly maintained. They are also invaluable in helping us determine if the sidewalks were poorly constructed from the onset.
We conduct thorough investigations focused on identifying all potential liability factors. If more than one party is liable, we will aggressively pursue maximum compensation against all at-fault parties.
