When we navigate the streets of our communities, we are constantly faced with hazards that put us in danger. Sidewalks are no exception. The sidewalks of New York are riddled with different hazards that can cause a multitude of injuries including broken bones, muscle damage, spinal cord injuries, serious concussions, and more. These injuries can lead to overwhelming medical bills and lost wages that can seriously impact your future. Some injuries caused by a sidewalk accident can stay dormant for years before devastating your life.
Parking lots across the state of New York allow for easy access to a multitude of commercial, residential, and municipal properties, including schools, shopping centers, apartments, airports, and more. The owners of the property are responsible for the conditions of their parking facilities. They are obligated to monitor the surfaces regularly and reasonably keep their parking structures free of hazards.
Pedestrians who navigate the walkways of Kingston, Ulster County, and New York State are at risk for injuries related to slip and falls. Out of the many hazards facing pedestrians, snow and ice can cause some of the most serious injuries. If you slip and fall on the sidewalks or streets of your community, you could face injuries, including spinal cord damage, bone fractures, concussions, and more. These injuries can lead to years of devastating financial burdens. Some injuries can stay dormant before affecting your life and livelihood.
When we travel by foot to and from locations, we navigate through commercial, private, and municipal properties. Whether you are walking on a sidewalk, parking lot, or a crosswalk, you are most likely traveling on a surface that should be maintained up to a reasonable standard. In some cases, you may be walking on the property of your hamlet, village, town, or city. This is also the case with any other property owner- a municipality should consistently monitor and address hazards that put pedestrians at risk for injury.
Property owners have a responsibility to protect citizens from injuries caused by negligence. Most property owners take that responsibility seriously and will prevent and remove hazards that lead to injuries. Not all commercial, municipal and private property owners take the care necessary to protect those who lawfully use their premises. State and federal regulations protect the rights of citizens who have been injured by the negligence of a property owner when on a property for legitimate reasons.
When we enter a supermarket, we are generally unaware of the hazards that can cause us harm. We, as the consumers, hope that the staff at the local supermarket will take the necessary steps to ensure the safety of its customers. As we navigate the aisles, we can only hope that the staff consistently monitors and addresses anything in the store that can cause injury. Unfortunately, not all owners, supervisors, or staff members take their customers’ safety into consideration.
