Municipal / Transit Negligence: Broken/Defective Sidewalk Accidents

A municipal government must keep the public sidewalks in a safe condition because failing to do so can cause significant injury to you or someone else. Holes, cracks, uneven or broken sidewalks are a danger. They are required to be repaired and when they are not and cause injury, we can help.

The municipality can be held responsible if it owned the sidewalk and had notice of the dangerous condition and failed to take corrective action within a certain time.

These cases often require expert opinions to prove the nature and extent of a defective condition and the failure of the governmental agency to comply with codes or ordinances governing the proper construction and maintenance of sidewalks.
