When sidewalks are chipped, cracked, or have been insufficiently maintained by the city or responsible property owners, this negligence can lead to serious accidents and injuries. If you have been involved in a slip, trip, or fall accident on a sidewalk, you need to speak with an attorney about seeking the compensation you need to pay for your medical bills and other expenses related to injuries sustained as a result of this accident.
