Could you sue if you trip and fall on a sidewalk?

Short answer: Yes


There are a few factors to determine whether you could sue if you fall on a sidewalk:


1. Was the sidewalk/condition defective?


2. Was the defect larger than De Minimis (small/neglible)?


3. Did the property owner have prior notice of the defective sidewalk?


If the answer to these questions is yes, then you most likely have a lawsuit against the property owner for a defective sidewalk. Contact an attorney to discuss your case.
