Did you take a slip and fall on the ice recently? It certainly happens this time of year. While most of the United States is experiencing frigid temperatures and extreme winter weather, Americans have to worry about black ice and snow when they walk on pathways, sidewalks, and parking lots. While you can and should stay indoors when you can, there are times when you’ll have to go outside.
When you do, you’re putting your trust in others to do the right thing and make sure their property is clear when snow and ice are present on the ground. The law on slip and fall cases will depend on where you live, but there are certain principles that exist within most state laws regarding slip and fall cases. Harmon, Linder & Rogowsky reviews these types of cases all of the time and provide guidance on whether or not you might have a case.
For example, property owners are responsible for clearing their sidewalks and pathways of snow and ice within a reasonable amount of time. If they fail to do so, they could be liable for an injury if someone takes a spill. If they choose to ignore the ice and you fall, you do have a right to sue to seek compensation for your medical costs and pain and suffering.
