The snow, ice, and sleet of colder months can lead to slips, falls, and traumatic injuries. Property owners have an obligation to ensure the safety of those who visit their premises, and in periods of colder weather, that includes clearing ice and snow from walkways and other areas where visitors can slip and fall.
If you’ve been hurt in a slip and fall accident, it’s important to know your rights. The experienced attorneys at Johnson & Biscone, P.A. understand the complexities of premises liability cases in Oklahoma, including slip and fall accidents. We are committed to fighting for the justice and compensation you deserve.
Duty of Care During Colder Weather
Even though ice, snow, and freezing rain can’t be prevented, owners and managers of properties owe a duty of care to those who visit their premises. They must actively take reasonable steps to reduce risk. This can include shoveling, or using salt, sand, or other method to clear slippery hazards. Warning signs can also be placed to alert visitors of potential risks.
When property owners fail in their duty of care, life-altering injuries can occur, such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Fractures and broken bones
- Sprains and strains
Determining liability in these cases can be difficult, and requires the knowledge, skill, and resources of an experienced slip and fall lawyer. A seasoned attorney can advise you on your rights, explain your legal options, and fight on your behalf for the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled under the law.
