Bizarre Pedestrian Accident in New York City Leaves Man and Son Seriously Injured

A boy and his father out for a walk on a Thursday afternoon suddenly became the victims of pedestrian accident in Harlem last month.

Changes to Laws May Make Getting Compensation for Sidewalk Accidents in New York City Easier

A sweeping change to a City ordinance may make it easier for victims of certain types of slip and fall sidewalk accidents in New York City to get the compensation they deserve. Currently, the responsibility of maintaining the sidewalk adjacent to a building falls to the building's owner (if the building houses four families or more). The homeowner had a legal obligation to regularly inspect and repair the adjoining sidewalk. That responsibility extended to the building's owner even if the sidewalk was damaged by trees planted by the City.

DOT's New Marketing Campaign Designed to Prevent Crosswalk Accidents in New York City

Crosswalk accidents in New York City are one of the most common types of pedestrian accident anywhere in The Big Apple. In fact, they make up the majority of pedestrian involved collisions here and are responsible for the vast majority of serious injuries and fatalities that people on foot suffer.

Motorists have the responsibility to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks every time-whether the crosswalk is marked or not.

Sidewalk Accidents in New York City Spike During Winter Months

It should come as no surprise that the number of sidewalk accidents in New York City soars during the winter months but it's not always the snow and ice that are responsible for these slip and fall accidents. As the ground and water underneath sidewalks and paving stones freezes, it expands. This can lift these sidewalk flagstones, cause them to mislevel, crack or shift them out of place. This can leave dangerous holes or cracks and raised/uneven sidewalk flagstones that can trip up unsuspecting pedestrians.
