It is may be Spring, but with the recent extreme cold temperatures and snow, it’s hard to tell exactly when to take your winter tires off, and when the weather will really represent the season. Let’s also not forget that “April showers bring May flowers” and we have, and will continue to experience our fair share of rain.
What does this mean for your safety as a pedestrian? You need to take precautions as a pedestrian both inside and outside, as slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere, as a result of snow, ice, accumulations of water and mud, and failure to maintain properties. In other words, slip and fall accidents are really a year round concern for all of us. Unfortunately, you can experience a slip and fall while walking across a driveway, on a sidewalk, walking up a set of stairs on a commercial property, inside a mall, or just about anywhere.
A slip and fall, regardless of where it occurs can cause serious injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, concussions (and post-concussion syndrome), fractures, neck and back injuries, torn ligaments, contusions or even cause psychological symptoms to develop. After a slip and fall, a person’s injuries may be so severe that he or she is unable to work for a period of time, and loses income. This is why it is very important to consult a lawyer who can explain if your claim has merit, and if it does, what types of compensation you may be entitled to (e.g. past and future loss of income).
A slip and fall can occur when you least expect it. The lawyers at Aaron Waxman and Associates have represented many clients who have sustained serious injuries as a result of these types of accidents.
