Common Causes of Central Park Personal Injury Accidents

  • Bicycles: The 6 miles of bike paths make Central Park a favorite spot for cycling enthusiasts, but with so many bikes sharing the same space, accidents can happen. This is especially true on the weekends and peak tourist times. Collisions with other cyclists, pedestrians, or even animals can result in serious injuries and lasting damage to the victim.
  • Slip and falls: The park’s diverse landscape is one of its greatest draws, but it can also be a source of danger. With everything from rocky outcroppings to winding gravel paths, there are plenty of opportunities for slips and falls. Add in rain, snow, or ice, and the risk of a Central Park slip and fall injury can skyrocket.
  • Dog bites: As a haven for dog owners, the park offers plenty of space for their furry friends to run and play. But with so many dogs in one place, interactions between pets and other park-goers can occasionally lead to injuries like bites and scratches.
  • Playground accidents: The playgrounds here are a favorite spot for families with young children, but accidents can happen if equipment is not well-maintained. 
  • Horse-drawn carriages: Carriage rides are a beloved part of the Central Park experience, but they are not without risks. With so many carriages sharing the park's roadways, collisions are a possibility, as are accidents involving motor vehicles. These incidents can result in serious injuries for both passengers and drivers. To reduce the risk of accidents, all carriage operators must follow strict safety guidelines, and visitors should be cautious when crossing roads or approaching carriage pick-up points.
  • Poor maintenance: Lack of maintenance can create a range of hazards throughout Central Park, including damaged or uneven pavement and inadequate lighting. Neglected playing fields, broken equipment, litter, and debris can also contribute to accidents. Fallen trees or branches can pose a risk, while slippery or broken steps can lead to trips and falls.

What to Do if You've Been Injured in Central Park, NY?

Have you or your child sustained injuries in Central Park? Depending on the circumstances of your injury, you may have the right to file a lawsuit against the government but you need to act quickly. These cases can be worth a lot of money. Our team at the Law Offices of Michael S. Lamonsoff can help you navigate the legal process and build a strong case against any negligent parties.

Central Park is managed by the Central Park Conservancy, but it's still owned by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. This means that if you've been hurt, you may be able to file a claim against the city.
