When the weather is nice, going on a walk can be an enjoyable experience. No one pencils in a slip and fall accident into their day. Nonetheless, they happen everyday due to broken sidewalks. Below are some tips on how to approach a sidewalk slip and fall personal injury claim.
Is a City or Town to Blame For Your Injuries?
Cities and towns have an obligation to keep the streets and sidewalks safe for pedestrian usage. When a city or town fails to do this, they can be responsible for your slip and fall accident. You must prove that the town or city was negligent and did not make an effort to let citizens know that it was unsafe.
Municipal entities must keep sidewalks and streets safe. If you have been injured due to a broken sidewalk, it is important to take pictures of the scene. After all, a picture can serve as evidence in your personal injury case.
