Who is Responsible For Sidewalk Repair?
Laws on who holds the responsibility of keeping sidewalks, curbs, planters, ramps, stairs, and walkways in good condition vary from city to city and state to state, but it is almost always the owner or tenant of said property who holds this responsibility. If the damage is the fault of a contractor it is up to them to repair it. If the city has caused the damage, then it is up to the city. In some cities or states, the government will repair the sidewalk on someone's property only if a city street tree is responsible for the damage. In some states, the city will also repair damge that causes drainage problems. You can find out if you may have a case by filling out a short case evaluation form.
