Snowy, Icy Conditions Add To The Number Of Slips And Falls
It’s been a bitter, cold winter here in St. Louis. We’ve been hit with quite a few snow storms, and the cold temperatures we’ve experienced haven’t exactly allowed much of it to melt. In fact, during the day when the sun warms up a little bit more, it’s common for the snow to melt just enough to make it easy to turn into ice once the sun goes down. As you can imagine, this creates the perfect scene for many slips and falls.
As your St. Louis personal injury attorney, we want you to know how important it is for you to report any slip and fall incident immediately. It’s absolutely vital for you to get in touch with the owner of the property so that you can let that person know about your fall. Be sure that the proper paperwork is filled out, get the medical attention you need to ensure your own safety and well-being, and contact an attorney right away.
When you work with a qualified St. Louis slip and fall attorney after suffering from fall, one of the first things that will happen is that you’ll be advised of your rights. Any injury that occurs because of a property-owner’s negligence, even during the winter, can be compensated, as long as you take the proper legal steps.
