istock_000000522737_large_zpsjahx0xxe_0New York winters can deliver an abundance of heavy snow and freezing rain. Property owners have a responsibility to ensure their premises are safe, which includes the timely and adequate removal of snow and ice. If you or someone you love has been injured because of icy conditions in New York, our slip and fall injury lawyer can help you pursue the justice and compensation you deserve.

Even though property owners can’t control the weather, they can be proactive in preventing slip and fall accidents on their premises. This is important because slipping and falling can be more dangerous than you think. Although it usually happens to all of us at some point in our lives, an unexpected blunder on a slippery surface can have dire consequences. Some common injuries from falls on snow and ice include:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Leg, pelvis or hip injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Arm, wrist or hand fractures
  • Death

When you slip and fall on icy sidewalks or parking lots, you could be entitled to compensation for:

  • Lost wages
  • Rehabilitative therapy
  • Medical care
