Slip and fall lawyers love the winter season. During the winter, there are a lot more slip and fall cases because of the dangerous, cold, icy conditions in the United States. Southern slip and fall lawyers in Florida, Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, and other states do not get as many cases during the winter because there is not as much ice and snow. A personal injury lawyer in the northeast, however, love the winter because they are constantly busy with cases of people slipping on a homeowner’s or a business’s property. Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, and New Jersey have some of the highest reported cases.
You might be thinking that this makes personal injury lawyers in Philadelphia and the rest of the northeast pretty cruel and poor individuals since they practically wish for bad things to happen, but really, these lawyers are helping the people who are victims of negligent behavior of other homeowners. Think about it. Even when it’s freezing outside, there is a winter storm, and people wish just to stay inside and sip hot cocoa (or wine) by the fire, their dogs still need to go for walks. Furthermore, not everyone has the luxury of being able to take a snow day and stay inside for the duration of the snowstorm, yet alone something as bad as a Nor’easter. Because of our pets and certain jobs that require people to go to work even during the worst weather conditions, it is necessary for everyone else to take care of their property and make sure to help prevent their neighbors from slipping and falling on ice.
It is not that difficult to make sure that the snow and ice melt on your sidewalk so that your friends can walk their dogs safely. All you have to do to prevent these dangerous slip and fall cases is stock up on rock salt before the big winter storms start coming. When the weather forecasters predict that there is going to be a storm, you need to sprinkle the rock salt on your sidewalk. If the snowstorm is really big, then the salt will eventually stop working as it melts away into your lawn. When the rock salt melts away, the snow will pile up on your sidewalk and your driveway. Make sure to shovel that snow away and reapply the rock salt, so that your neighbors will not slip and fall on your property. As the day goes on, if it keeps snowing, make sure you buy rock salt to keep on hand to disperse over your driveway.
