Snow Removal Slip and Fall

Slip and Fall

Severe winter weather often brings a slew of Slip and Fall clients to the offices of Slip and Fall Attorneys.  As snow and ice piles up the probability of a Slip and Fall accident increases dramatically and when that Slip and Fall happens at a business there is a good chance that you may have the ability to recover damages for the injuries you suffer in your Slip and Fall.

The first thing to note about a Slip and Fall accident due to snow and ice is that the mere presence of snow and ice alone may not be enough to allow you to recover damages for your Slip and Fall accident; for example, if you go to a business and there has been no effort to make clear the parking lot because the business is closed due to weather it may be difficult for your Slip and Fall Attorneys to recover anything for you because the case for the business being negligent is thin.

However, when a business is open during or after snowy weather and they make an effort to clear their business of snow and ice and you suffer a Slip and Fall due to snow and ice there is a case to be made that they negligently cleared their property and your Slip and Fall Attorneys may be able to help you recover damages for your Slip and Fall; this applies even where the property owner has cleared the area and additional snow and ice accumulate after their initial clearing.

Slip and Fall Sports Injury

Slip and Fall

Slip and Fall Attorneys see a wide range of causes in the Slip and Fall Accidents they deal with on a daily basis.  One variety of Slip and Fall that leads to injuries are those Slip and Falls that happen while playing organized sports.  Due to the physical nature of many organized sports Slip and Fall injuries can be rather severe when they occur within an organized sporting event.

Unfortunately, the mere fact that a Slip and Fall led to a severe injury does not mean that you may are able to recover for the accident, despite the best efforts of your Slip and Fall Attorneys.  The reason for this is that when you play an organized team sport you assume much of the liability for any injuries upon yourself and as such, your Slip and Fall Attorneys are often handcuffed in what they are able to do for you.

However, when the Slip and Fall in the organized activity is beyond the risk you assumed with your participation your Slip and Fall Attorneys may be able to recover damages on your behalf.  One instance where the risk is beyond what is normally expected in the activity is an unsafe playing condition that you were unaware of but the organizer should have been aware of; another example would be conduct of another player that is far beyond what is expected in the game, which causes your Slip and Fall injury.  Of course, there are a wide variety of conditions that could be an exception to the general rule and as such, it is always advisable to speak with Slip and Fall Attorneys about any Slip and Fall Accident you may have.
