In the United States, there are approximately 56.6 million students enrolled in elementary and secondary school. With school back in full swing, many students walk to and from school. While this is an excellent way for your kids to get exercise while making their daily commute, they are left prone to a trip or fall due to broken sidewalks.
The Barnes Firm is a personal injury law firm with experience helping victims who have been injured due to a broken sidewalk. If the sidewalk is under the care of a property owner or city government, you may feel helpless in how to prevent trip and fall accidents, but our team has come up with a way to help keep your kids safe from broken sidewalks during back to school season.
When most people come across a broken sidewalk in their city or neighborhood, they may likely ignore it and keep walking, unaware of the danger that a broken sidewalk may pose. With school back in session and students making their trek to and from campus each day, a broken sidewalk may put your child in harm’s way if a trip and fall accident leaves them injured.
Children tend to daydream on their walks to and from school, and may not notice a broken sidewalk that could leave them with injuries, but these types of accidents are preventable. The Sidewalksnap app is an application that aims to hold property owners and city governments responsible for the lack of care given to broken sidewalks in their communities. By using SidewalkSnap.com, the power of providing your community with safer sidewalks is back in your hands.
SidewalkSnap.com app is highly user-friendly. In just three simple steps, you will be doing your way part to help provide safe sidewalks in your community:
By holding property owners and government officials accountable for the safety and care of the sidewalks in their communities, you are helping to prevent your child from falling victim to a trip and fall accident during back-to-school time.
While a broken sidewalk may seem harmless if a student trips and falls due to one, they may be injured severely. The injuries commonly suffered after a trip and fall accident are:
Whether the injuries suffered by the victims are minor or more severe, no student should have to be injured due to a broken sidewalk not being taken care of in their community.
Back to school time is a hectic season for many students and their families. With so much already going on, an injury caused by a broken sidewalk is the last thing that students should have to deal with. The Sidewalksnap app aims to eliminate these preventable injuries from occurring in the first place with its simple three-step process for reporting a broken sidewalk.
