Sidewalk accidents are more common than many people think. As New Yorkers know well, sidewalk bridges are visible throughout New York City, designed to protect workers and passersby from dangers of falling debris wherever work projects are underway on tall buildings.
They may be erected where new buildings are going up or where existing buildings are undergoing renovations at high levels. Required by city law -- and apparently, a sensible way to protect people at ground level from accidents originating high above the sidewalk level -- they sometimes become a source of risk of injury to people who live, walk, drive or work nearby.
