Accident Attorney in Regards To Ice or Snow in New York
Accidents in snow and / or ice involve temporary conditions of ice or 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, fracture, or other injuries. Negligence can be defined as the lack of use of that degree of care 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. They should clean and eliminate and put barriers around the dangerous condition.
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 insurance companies away from you.
Accidents in snow and / or ice can also be related to workers’ compensation claims if the employer refuses to remove ice or snow from the work area, which can cause an accident. You should always be protected against damages if the company does not use good security practices, our law firm can work hard to earn the required compensation for you.
