Few people realize how dangerous sidewalks can be. It is normal to assume that a sidewalk will provide certain characteristics – a relatively uniform surface, free from obstacles and with a certain amount of traction. Unfortunately, when businesses or city governments fail to maintain sidewalks, they can become extremely dangerous, and can cause serious injuries.

Attorney Anthony A. Ferrante believes you should be able to walk without worrying about being injured by your surroundings. If you have been hurt in a trip and fall or other sidewalk accident, he believes that you deserve compensation for your injuries.

The need for a New York City Personal Injury Attorney

Initially, it may seem relatively straightforward to seek restitution for your injuries. A business or local government failed to maintain their premises, and you were hurt as a result.
