During the winter time, when ice and snow are on the ground, you are at a higher risk of an accident if you’re on the road.

Ice and snow on the road can cause cars to swerve off the road and crash into other cars. Residents of buildings are also at higher risks of slipping and falling next to property, which can result in liability cases for the landlords.

A study published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that 42,480 workplace injuries in 2014 involved fleet or snow. If you slipped and fell at your workplace, you can sue your employer.

Even in poor weather, landlords have a responsibility to keep their properties maintained. If they aren’t shoveling snow, pouring salt on ice, or taking other measures to prevent accidents, they can be held liable in the court of law.

If you’ve suffered an injury due to ice or snow on the road, near your building, or in your workplace, call our team of personal injury lawyers today at 888-355-4752.
