Sidewalk Defects

Whether in front of a home or a business or other entity, property owners are obligated to maintain their sidewalks.  This is especially true in New England where snow and ice are the winter norm.  Such falls may result in serious injuries such as broken bones, dislocated joints, traumatic brain injuries, and even spinal cord injuries.  When involved in a fall, you may be left unable to work or in need of hospital care and rehabilitation.  If you or someone you love was injured due to a damaged or ill-maintained sidewalk,  the property owner can and should be held responsible.
