What Should I Do If I Slipped and Fell on Ice?
As an experienced Buffalo Personal Injury Lawyer I am often asked about cases that involve slips and falls. A lot of people, especially in the winter when we’re dealing with inclement weather, slip and fall on icy and snowy conditions. Often those injuries are devastating, a fractured hip or a fractured pelvis, some pretty serious injuries. They come into the office and want to know what they can do. Obviously the first thing you want to do is make sure that your medical care is taken care of and you’re getting all the medical care you need to treat your injuries. After that, it’s important to have the attorney conduct an investigation of the area where you fell, whether it be ice in a parking lot, snow on a sidewalk, or wherever the snowy or icy conditions existed. Then what we do is evaluate the claim to see whether or not you have a good claim. Depending on the conditions that were in existence at that time, sometimes we have to order weather reports and do other things to make sure to be able to make that determination whether or not you have a good claim when you slipped on snowy and icy conditions here in Buffalo, New York.
