Property owners and managers have an obligation to keep their premises clear of snow and ice hazards within a reasonable time following the completion of a storm. If the snow or ice is not properly cleared, which usually includes proper shoveling, salting, and sanding, negligence can often be held as the cause of the fall. Injuries resulting from slips and falls on snow and ice can be very serious and often involve broken or fractured bones. In order to be successful in this type of claim, it is important to immediately gather photographs and physical evidence to document the existence of the dangerous condition as well as the proof that it was the cause of your accident.
