Watching for Hazards when Walking Your Dog in NYC
New York City is known for its stunning skyline, eclectic residents and neighborhoods, and, of course, Central Park. Whether a person enjoys taking their dog for a walk to their favorite coffee spot or enjoys people-watching with their pet through NYC’s busy streets, most people do not assume they will be injured when walking their dog. Unfortunately, with so much foot traffic in the Big Apple, there are countless broken, cracked, and raised sidewalks that may become a hazard while walking your dog.

While a broken sidewalk may not seem like a hazard that could cause you to become injured while walking your dog, there are one million Americans who are reported to need medical attention after a slip or fall.
