Accident Attorney in Ice or Snow in New York
Accidents in snow and / or ice involve temporary conditions of ice or melted snow and water. At the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm, we handle cases in which there was negligence in cleaning or eliminating these conditions, and the result was a fall, laceration, deformation, or any other injury. Negligence can be defined as the lack of use of that degree of attention that a reasonable person would have used in the same circumstances.
If an accident occurs on a property due to snow or ice, the owner or operator of the property can be held responsible since it is their legal obligation to maintain the property and remove the snow and / or ice. They also have an obligation to warn people using their property of hazards and risks, so injuries can be avoided.
These cases can be difficult because moisture can evaporate quickly. In a case in which a client slipped and fell due to a liquid that was left on the floor of a restaurant, we were able to get a $ 1,100,000 settlement for her during the trial.
We can even go to your home, hospital or work. If you do not have a doctor who can treat you for your injuries it is very possible that we can find doctors who can treat you without you having to pay them until the end of the case, and we can keep the representatives of the non-insurance companies away from you.
Accidents in snow and / or ice can also be related to workers’ compensation claims if your employer refuses to remove ice or snow from the work area, which can cause an accident. You should always be protected against damages if your company does not use security practices, our company will work hard to earn compensation for you.
