Pedestrian Sidewalk Injuries

Sidewalks are intended to be safe areas for pedestrians to walk. Unfortunately, sidewalks can also be sites of pedestrian accidents. Pedestrians have little to protect them from reckless drivers or poor city maintenance. If you are injured while walking on a sidewalk, there may be financial compensation available to you.

Causes of Sidewalk Injuries

Sidewalk accidents can occur anywhere, anytime. There are many dangers that can turn this safe haven for walkers into a disaster area. Pedestrians on sidewalks are threatened by:

  • Reckless drivers who leave the roadway
  • Irresponsible bikers who don’t share the sidewalk
  • Uneven sidewalks
  • Incomplete sidewalks with dangerous holes and cracks

In a severe sidewalk accident, pedestrians may be badly hurt. Broken bones, sprains, and cuts are all distinct possibilities. Pedestrians may be hospitalized or become disabled. Months or years of physical therapy may be in order. Pain and suffering often follow a sidewalk injury, as well as financial burdens. Fortunately, you may not have to face these challenges alone.
