10 Feb WHAT TO DO IF YOU SLIP & FALL ON ICE OR SNOW
Posted By Gruenberg Kelly Della || 10-Feb-2020
Winter in January can be a harsh time, especially for individuals living in colder states like New York. People find themselves needing to shovel their driveways every morning, wear layers of clothing and gloves to keep from freezing, and having to watch where they step. Unfortunately, hazards on the ground such as snow and ice are not always easy to see, and many people slip and fall during these months, injuring themselves.
While not all slip and falls on ice and snow can justify a personal injury case, if they occur on someone else’s property, you may be able to prove that another party is responsible for your pain and suffering. If you’re injured, the best solution is to find a team of experienced personal injury lawyers to see if you have a lawsuit on your hands.
What to Do If You Slip & Fall
If you slip and fall on ice or snow, you may have acquired a common injury such as fractures, bruises, back injuries, spinal cord injuries, and even traumatic brain injuries. There are a number of steps to follow when this has happened to you.
If you’ve fallen, it’s important to do the following:
- Seek medical attention if you’re in pain, and make sure your injuries are documented through photos and/or doctor’s notes so you have evidence
- Record the statements of any witnesses
- Take photos of the scene of your accident
- Call a lawyer to begin working on your case
Our lawyers can determine and prove if the property owner knew about the dangerous conditions and either did nothing or did a poor job of trying to fix the problem.
