I tripped and fell on a broken sidewalk on Long Island. What are my rights?

Sidewalks must be maintained around each property. Each town has its own laws on who is responsible. Some towns  are responsible for maintaining residential sidewalks, while other towns put the burden on the homeowner. If you've been injured as a result of a broken sidewalk, you may have a case against the party responsible for mainitaining that sidewalk. Please read our recent article for more information and a list of who is responsible for maintaining sidewalks in each Long Island town. There may be time limitations, so  contact  a lawyer as soon as possible.
