The sidewalks in many cities, including Philadelphia, often include cracks and breaks which cause serious and significant injury to innocent pedestrians every day. Often, people believe that it is the City that is responsible for injuries that result due to improperly maintained sidewalks. This however, is incorrect. Most times, it is actually the homeowner who is responsible for the neglected sidewalk. Furthermore, it is often the homeowner’s insurance policy that can be responsible for compensating an injured person for the pain and suffering, medical bills, wage loss, medical treatment, physical therapy, medical equipment, prescription drugs, lost earnings, and other damages that a person has suffered as the result of a fall on a broken sidewalk. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Samuel Fishman have significant experience at trying and settling personal injury cases resulting from falls on a broken sidewalk.
Many times, clients enter our offices with injuries including broken arms, broken legs, herniations, torn ligaments, back sprains, neck sprains, and other serious injuries as the result of tripping on an improperly maintained sidewalk. These are significant injuries that can have life altering effects.
One of the first and most important steps in helping prove a trip and fall claim is getting pictures of the scene of the fall. We suggest that, once it is safe to do so, you immediately take pictures of the location of the fall using a camera or cell phone. If you do not do so, or it is not safe to take pictures, do not worry. As your attorney, we will be happy to obtain photos of the scene for you!
