Snow-Related Accidents Likely to be on the Rise in St. Louis

We’ve enjoyed a warm summer and a pleasant fall season here in St. Louis, but all good things must come to an end eventually, and that includes nice weather. The cold and snow have arrived, which means it’s time to bundle up and use extra caution when you’re traveling.

Slips and Falls

Most business owners are careful to make sure their walkways are clear and dry, or they post signs when you need to be cautious. However, that’s not always the case, and slips and falls in St. Louis businesses are always more common at the beginning of winter.

Ice and Snow-Related Accidents

While you probably haven’t forgotten how to use extra caution in the snow, the other drivers on the road might not be as careful. Many car accidents happen during this time of year simply because people often don’t brake as soon as they should.

A snow-related accident can have serious consequences. Not only can you suffer from serious injuries, but those injuries often lead to time off work and lost wages, which can be a significant strain, especially with the holidays quickly approaching.

If you or someone you love is injured this winter because of a slip and fall or a car accident, it’s important to contact a St. Louis personal injury attorney right away. You may be able to be compensated for your injuries, and it is vital to act quickly. A St. Louis personal injury attorney will be able to advise you regarding the next steps you should take.
