Sidewalk Falls

Injuries and Falls on Dangerous Sidewalks

Sidewalks that are in disrepair pose serious risks for pedestrians who walk on them. Slip-and-fall accidents caused by cracks and holes in sidewalks can lead to serious, life-threatening injuries and even wrongful death.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a sidewalk fall accident, the New York premises liability attorneys at Eisenberg & Baum are here to stand up for your rights. We don’t back down from insurance companies — we will fight to protect your right to full and fair compensation.

Our New York Sidewalk-Fall Attorneys Fight for You

In New York, building owners are responsible for injuries that occur on sidewalks adjacent to their property. Sidewalk injuries can occur for a number of reasons, including:

  • Cracks
  • Potholes
  • Snow and ice
  • Hazardous debris
  • Slippery surfaces

Our attorneys know how to investigate, prepare and litigate cases to obtain successful results for our clients. The opposition may claim the accident was your fault — you should have seen the accident coming and could have taken steps to avoid it.

We know how to find the facts in sidewalk fall cases to counter their claims and help our clients obtain the compensation they need to pay for their medical bills, lost wages and other hardships.
