Sidewalk Accident Attorneys

A slip and fall on an icy sidewalk, or a trip and fall on a cracked or buckled sidewalk, can result in serious injury. While we would hope to escape serious injury from a sidewalk fall with only a scrape or two, unfortunately such falls can result in a serious sprain or fracture, particularly of the ankle, wrist or hip. A debilitating back injury or serious head injury from a fall on hard concrete is also possible. In Goshen and other Orange County communities, New York law requires both commercial and residential property owners to maintain their sidewalks in a reasonable condition. Not all accidents can be prevented, but when a serious slip and fall occurs because of a dangerous condition which was simply neglected by the landowner, the attorneys at Dupée & Monroe work to hold those property owners accountable to the people they have harmed through their shameful neglect.
