Is it possible for an athlete who engages in extreme sports such as rock climbing or extreme mountain biking to sustain broken bones from a sidewalk accident? While this seems improbable, it can happen because of the person’s expectations says Arkady Frekhtman, one of the trip & fall accident attorneys at the F&A injury law firm in New York City. When using a sidewalk, it’s natural to assume that it’s a perfectly safe activity. Walking on sidewalks is not an extreme sport and shouldn’t require the same intense focus of spotting fall hazards. It’s a reasonable expectation that it’s safe to let your guard down.
Defective sidewalks are hazardous for everyone using them. Sidewalks must be safe for all pedestrians including joggers, children, the elderly, and the disabled. Good sidewalks are essential for delivery workers, who can’t always look at their feet when they’re carrying packages in their arms.
When a sidewalk causes a trip and fall injury that sets you back, you shouldn’t have to bear the hardships on your own. Trip & Fall accident attorneys are available to help you.
