Full Recovery For New York City Sidewalk Accidents
Within the five boroughs (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx and Staten Island) of the City of New York, there is probably a greater network of sidewalks and pathways than in any other location of the State of New York. As a result, there are a large number of trip, slip, and/or fall accidents which occur on various sidewalks, walkways and pathways throughout the metropolitan area.
Many of these accidents result in serious injuries involving fractures of the wrist, arm, shoulder, ankle, knee and other bones in addition to various connective tissue damage, which often requires surgery and protracted therapeutic treatment. Unfortunately, these types of falls can cause significant trauma to the head or brain (also known as traumatic brain injury or TBI), which can result in death, especially when someone is propelled to the hard pavement directly hitting his or her head.
