Spring is Here, but Frosty Weather Can Still Result in Slips and Falls

It’s the season we’ve all been waiting for, at least since right after the new year arrived. Spring feels as though it’s a time for new beginnings in St. Louis, and it’s not surprising that so many people are willing to “hurry it along.”

According to a recent news article on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website, while the weather is getting better, it’s best to not expect spring temperatures or spring weather conditions quite yet. In fact, we should anticipate some freezing weather to stick around, which means it’s not time for business owners to pack away the salt just yet.

Slips and falls can result in a lot of problems for business owners, and a lot of pain when they happen to you. Too many businesses fail to continue to take proper care of their property until the snow is gone, which can result in an increase in dangerous accidents.

As your St. Louis personal injury attorney, we do want to caution you to be aware of your surroundings, even when just a few flurries have fallen from the skies. It doesn’t take much to result in a slippery surface, and you should anticipate that some businesses will just not be continuing to be vigilant about putting down salt when it’s slippery.

If you do slip and fall, please contact us. You deserve to be compensated for your injuries, and we’ll fight hard for you.
