New York City Sidewalk Defect Attorney

People injured due to a defective NYC sidewalk should speak to an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after the accident.

Sidewalk Maintenance and Repair

According to the New York City Department of transportation:

Under Section 19-152 of New York’s Administrative Code, property owners are responsible for installing, repairing and maintaining sidewalks adjoining their properties. DOT staff inspect sidewalks and notify the property owner of needed repairs. In the event timely repairs are not made by the property owner, the City may hire private construction firms to make the repairs. When this happens, the City bills the property owner for the costs of the repairs. Property owners must also keep their sidewalks clean and are responsible for snow removal.


What Should You Do?

If you or a loved-one has been injured in an accident due to a defective NYC sidewalk, you should immediately speak with an experienced NYC attorney to protect your rights and assert your claim.
