Snow, Slush and Ice Slip and Falls
Snow, ice and slush often accumulate and cause slippery conditions in areas such as sidewalks, parking lots, driveways, stairways, building entrances and store aisles. People can easily fall on these slick surfaces and sustain serious injuries. In Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, as well as throughout New Jersey, property owners, managers, tenants and/or maintenance companies are responsible for keeping their properties and curtilage--including walkways, parking lots and sidewalks free from snow, slush and ice after winter storms and in cold weather.
If you or a loved one recently suffered a slip and fall on snow and ice, you should speak with a lawyer today in order to learn more about your legal rights and options. If a property owner’s negligence caused the incident to happen, you could be eligible to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain, suffering and other damages.
Some of the common injuries include:
Severe sprains and strains
Torn muscles, tendons and ligaments
Herniated or ruptured discs (especially in the lower back)
Concussions and other forms of traumatic brain injury.
