Slips and falls are serious accidents and can happen anytime but this time of year is the most common for these accidents. Winter precipitation can be the main cause of slips and trips with ice, snow and sleet most common during the winter. Hundreds of people are injured and visit emergency rooms to treat their injuries. Businesses, cities, municipalities and even homeowners spend large sums of money on weather preparations to ensure that their consumers are safe from the elements.
Slips and falls can cause serious injuries and serious medical expenses. Victims of slips and falls can sprain and break bones, receive lacerations and even head injuries. These injuries are not only physical but can be mentally stressful on victims as well. Always pay attention when the weather is in less than desirable conditions. Ice can be hard to spot especially when it is under snow. If you or a loved one is injured by a slip or fall, contacting a personal injury lawyer is crucial.
