Slip on Ice Lawyer

Cold Weather Slip-And-Fall Accidents

There are many of us who love the winter time; the cold air on our cheeks, seeing our breath in the morning light, and the falling snow with the sledding that follows, while we enjoy time with our families and loved ones. However when an unexpected serious injury happens due to the negligence of a property owner or a dangerous condition in a parking lot or commercial property it can be time to seek legal advice from a law firm with years of experience in personal injury and fall injuries.

The resulting broken bones, brain injuries and other serious injuries from fall accidents can result in long-term medical care and mounting medical bills, countless hours on the phone with the insurance companies, and takes a huge toll on your finances, loved ones and your life. If you or your loved one is an injured person due to icy conditions that lead to black ice, causing a fall accident, then call today for a free consultation with one of our Kansas City personal injury lawyers to know your legal rights and see if you are entitled to compensation for your serious injuries.

Winter weather can create dangerous conditions. Many slip-and-fall accidents occur in the winter months when the owner of the property allows:

  • Walkways go unshoveled for days at a time
  • Ice builds up on sidewalks and in parking lots during snow removal
  • Crosswalks are packed with ice and black ice
  • Built-up rooftop snow and icicles come crashing down on pedestrians
  • Snowplows inadvertently strike passersby
  • Their business to fail to salt slippery passageways
  • Melting rooftop snow refreezes on sidewalks and entryways
  • Business owners fail to sweep public areas, or to provide warning signs in, especially dangerous areas

These conditions can lead to serious falls — especially among the elderly, pregnant women and others who are vulnerable. Icy conditions can be even more dangerous because we’re unable to visually detect black ice, found most commonly in parking lots and commercial properties, however homeowners with paved asphalt driveways and walkways need to be as diligent in keeping black ice taken care of to prevent falls on ice and possible serious injuries that require medical attention.

Your Options For Compensation

Property owners, homeowners and commercial property owners alike, have a responsibility to keep walkways clear of ice and snow. When they fail to do so, and you or someone you love falls on ice and suffer the consequences from those dangerous conditions, you may be entitled to compensation through a premises liability claim or other fall cases.

Contact the personal injury attorneys at the law office of Peddicord & Townsend LLC in Kansas City to learn more about your options for a personal injury case. Our lawyers will evaluate your ice slip claim and let you know what types of compensation you may be entitled to such as:

  • Medical expenses and other out-of-pocket costs related to the injury
  • Lost wages if you’re unable to work
  • Ongoing costs of therapy and rehabilitation
  • Pain, suffering and other noneconomic damages

Drawing on 20-plus years of combined experience in personal injury law, our attorneys can help you strategize the best way to pursue the full financial recovery you deserve, work with insurance companies and give you the legal representation that you need in this difficult time.
