Falls on Ice and Snow


A certain number of slip and fall accidents are unavoidable. Even the most diligent property owner cannot guard against all possible risks at all times. But a property owner must demonstrate reasonable care for the protection of people who visit their property.

Unreasonable ice and snow conditions are frequently the basis for a slip and fall/premises liability lawsuit. If you have been injured while slipping on ice or snow, you may have a basis for compensation. Speaking with an attorney is the best way to determine how to protect your rights.

Other Examples of Premises Liability

The owner of property may be required to pay compensation to a personal injury victim if the property owner has negligently maintained or supervised his or her property. Although slip and fall accidents are one of the most common causes of premises liability, there are a number of other causes of potential liability including:

  • Unsafe fire hazards
  • Electrical hazards
  • Other slippery conditions: water/liquids, etc.
  • Poor lighting which aided a criminal in assault or theft
  • Other poor security measures which resulted in assault
  • Swimming pool dangers: lack of a fence or dangerous conditions
  • Unreasonable dangers to children
