Property owners in NYC are responsible for the repairs, maintenance, and replacement of sidewalks on their property. Failure to comply with the rules and regulations of the city can result in you receiving a sidewalk violation notice from NYC DOT. 

Moreover, if someone falls on your walkway because of your neglect, you'll be held liable. The good news is that by hiring professional sidewalk repair contractors, you can maintain your sidewalks and avoid pedestrian injuries and legal liabilities.

Common Sidewalk Damages that Lead to DOT Sidewalk Violations

Did you know that there are more than 12,000 miles of walkways throughout the city of New York that pedestrians use daily? Neglecting maintenance on these sidewalks can cause them to wear and tear over time. 

Damage to the concrete of the sidewalks can cause people to trip and fall. Some of the most common reasons that can lead to trip-and-fall accidents among pedestrians include:

  • Large Cracks
  • Significant Concrete Chips
  • Uneven Sidewalks
  • Tree Root Growth
  • Potholes
  • Buckling

The highest trip-and-fall risk of damaged sidewalks usually falls on children and senior citizens. Other high-risk candidates are anyone with compromised mobility—anyone pushing a stroller, using a cane, walker, or wheelchair. 

As a property owner, it is your responsibility to lower the risk of injuries and protect yourself from liability by maintaining the sidewalks. You can hire professional sidewalk repair and maintenance contractors to repair your sidewalks on an immediate basis.
