Record Number of Fall on Ice Cases this year
I am absolutely up to my eyeballs in slip and fall on ice cases this Winter. Our near record snowfalls, cold temperatures, and the occasional thaw/freeze day, have all combined to keep the phones ringing with people calling to see if they have a case. In many instances they do.
There are a lot of ins and outs to a slip and fall claim and each one is different. The weather, the specific location of the fall, and the specific reason you found yourself at the site all play into whether or not you can recover for your injuries.
If You are the victim of a slip and fall, try and make note of your exact location. Note the address. Any landmarks to reference the location of your fall. Take photos. Most cell phones these days have built in cameras so there really is no excuse not to document the conditions that lead to your mishap. Seek medical attention as needed and if you have any questions, feel free to contact out experienced Hartford personal injury lawyers.
