Brooklyn Slip on Ice Lawyer
Have you been injured because of a slip on ice?
Every winter brings cold conditions, including ice and snow, to the Northeast. While this can bring beauty and the opportunity for winter recreation, it also brings inconvenience as people need to travel through that snow to work, shop, and go about the business of their everyday lives. Snow removal can be a time-consuming and complicated task, but it needs to be done to keep streets and sidewalks safe for everyone.
Unfortunately, not all property owners remove the snow and ice from their premises with diligence. Thousands of people are injured every winter because they slipped on ice and snow that a property owner failed to clean up properly. The injuries caused by these falls can be very serious. If a negligent condition caused the fall, the victims of these injuries are often entitled to compensation from the party at fault. If you or someone you know has been injured from a fall caused by slipping on snow or ice, it is important that you get in touch with a legal team with experience in this kind of case to assist you.
Falls on ice and snow can cause broken bones, joint and spinal injuries, concussions, and other serious injuries. It can also be difficult to determine who is at fault: by law, some property owners and snow removal contractors might have limited immunity, and the reality of leases, sub-leases, and contracts means that responsibility could be shared or shifted. If an accident occurs on government-owned property, your ability to sue might be lost or limited if you don’t file a claim within a short period of time. A Brooklyn law firm with slip on ice experience can help you sort through these complex situations.
Snow and ice slips and falls can be caused by a number of conditions for which property owners can be held accountable, including:
– Snow not cleared from sidewalks, walkways, parking lots, or stairs
– Ice not salted, sanded, or removed
– Fresh snowmelt not salted or sanded promptly
– Plow piles left in dangerous locations, limiting access or blocking visibility for pedestrians and drivers
