Can I Claim Compensation?
The responsibility for sidewalks usually rests with the city authority or the owner of the adjacent property and they have a general duty to maintain to a reasonable standard. In order for a slip and fall lawyer to succeed in a compensation claim it is necessary to show that the sidewalk was dangerous to pedestrians due to the authority or the adjacent owner failing to inspect and maintain.
