Snow and Ice

The accumulation of snow and ice can increase the risk of an injury resulting from automobile accident or a slip and fall. Accidents often occur due to negligence on behalf of an automobile driver or a property owner who fail to take reasonable precautions.

With regard to slip and fall injuries, all hazards arising from snow and ice require the property owner to fulfill the same obligation of reasonable care that a property owner owes to lawful visitors regarding all other hazards, with an exception that the property owner is allowed a reasonable time to clear the snow and sand/salt the ice after the conclusion of a snow storm.

If you or a loved one were injured as a result of a negligent driver or a property owner who failed to make his premises safe after a snow storm, contact the qualified team of personal injury lawyers at Iannella & Mummolo in order to protect your rights and receive just compensation.
