Have you ever caught yourself headed into a dangerous construction area? Or had to avoid uneven pavement or made sure to watch your step while walking down the street? Areas of the roads that have heavy pedestrian traffic, such as sidewalks and crosswalks, are especially at risk for trips and falls. It is usually the city’s responsibility to maintain the safety of the crosswalks for pedestrians. If there is a defect in a crosswalk which creates an unreasonable and foreseeable risk of harm to its users, the city may be held responsible for any injuries related to this deficiency.
