NYC Pedestrian Ramp Injury Attorneys
Helping Victims of Slip, Trip & Fall Accidents on Pedestrian Ramps

Found at most intersections across New York City, pedestrian ramps are an essential tool for our millions of pedestrians, particularly the elderly and persons with disabilities. The New York City Department of Transportation (NYC DOT) is responsible for the design and installation of pedestrian ramps, but once they are installed, it is the responsibility of the owner of the adjacent property to ensure the ramp is properly maintained.

Pedestrian RampA defectively designed or improperly maintained pedestrian ramp can cause more harm than good. If you tripped and fell or were in a wheelchair and fell as a result of a defective pedestrian ramp, it is important to determine whether you have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. You could be entitled to financial compensation for your medical care, and more, but it starts with talking to an attorney about your options.

Call (646) 681-7055 today to talk to a New York City pedestrian ramp accident lawyer about your case. Your initial consultation is free and confidential!

Pedestrian Ramp Defects

Also referred to as curb cuts, pedestrian ramps must fit certain specifications in regard to their exact location at a curb, their slope, traction, and more. Accidents can occur due to:

  • Improper location in relation to a crosswalk/intersection
  • Snow or ice
  • Objects on or blocking a ramp
  • Improper slope
  • Inadequate/improper traction
  • Ramp edge uneven with sidewalk/street
  • Cracks or faults in a ramp

A serious fall at a pedestrian ramp can cause broken bones, head trauma, serious back injuries, and other debilitating harm that can affect your life in many ways. A person may even be struck by a vehicle after falling into the street. Make sure you hold the responsible party accountable and recover the compensation you need to rebuild. With our experience and our understanding of NYC ordinances and laws regarding pedestrian ramps, you can count on our injury attorneys to deliver quality counsel.
