Slip & Fall Accidents Come with Cold Weather
During the cold season, we always expect to see an increase in slips and falls. Unfortunately, as your St. Louis personal injury attorney, we see a lot of these accidents every year. So, we’d like to give you a few tips to help you avoid those slips and falls so that you can remain injury-free.
Check Your Shoes
If the tread is wearing down on your shoes, it places you in danger of slipping. So make sure to check your shoes before the snow and ice hit. Just because your shoes fit you well, doesn’t mean they are safe for winter weather.
During the summer, we’re not as cautious about where we’re walking because there isn’t really a danger of falling. However, ice can be slick, and even invisible to the naked eye. Be cautious when you’re stepping out of your vehicle, or when you’re walking on a sidewalk.
Report Spills To Employees
Many accidents than happen in businesses can be avoided if any spills are reported to the store’s employees. Be sure to report any dangerous conditions you might see to help others stay safe as well.
We hope that you will enjoy a safe winter this year. However, if you do find yourself as the victim of a slip and fall, your St. Louis personal injury attorney is available to help.
