It has been a hard-hitting winter here in Ulster County this year. Snow plows have been hard at work clearing roads to keep them safe and tons of salt have been spread. Just because the weather hits us hard, it doesn’t mean that life stops. We are used to rough winters here in the Hudson Valley, and bad weather doesn’t keep us inside. We move on, but what if someone’s negligence stops us in our tracks?
Every errand we run, outing we go on, business we frequent or day we walk into work comes with certain hazards during the winter. As people walk down snowy sidewalks and up icy stairways, there is always the chance that we will be a victim of a slip and fall injury, especially if the business or organization has not properly maintained their property. Walk with caution, but if you take a spill, know your rights.
Someone else’s lack of care is not your fault. It is your duty to live your life, and it is their duty to clear their walks and stairs. Beyond the outdoor hazards, melted snow inside doorways can turn a floor into a dangerous situation. The hazards of winter are everywhere, and if your stride turns into a slip, take action immediately, and call the personal injury attorneys at Basch and Keegan in Kingston.
