Falls on Snow and Ice
In order to bring a case for injuries caused by snow or ice, a plaintiff must bring a claim of negligence. Negligence occurs when someone, in most cases a property owner or manager, breaches his or her duty of care to keep those on the property reasonably safe. Whether the snow or ice accumulated naturally or unnaturally, negligence is actionable when a person suffers injury as a result of the actions of the property owner or manager.
What to do if you have been injured:
If you have suffered from a slip and fall on snow and ice, seek medical attention first. Sometimes injuries that don’t seem serious right away can develop into a condition that is very painful and severe. Therefore, in cases of slip and falls on snow or ice, it is important to seek medical attention if you believe you might have been injured. Next speak with an experienced attorney. A lawyer will be able to tell you whether or not you might be entitled to compensation. A lawyer will also make sure that your accident is thoroughly investigated.
