Winter-related hazards make it easy to slip and fall

Unfortunately, winter weather may cause severe dangers. For instance, people could easily slip and fall on an icy parking lot or store entrance that a business has failed to keep clear of ice and snow. Fortunately, if a business's negligence causes customers to suffer injuries due to dangerous conditions, this is grounds for litigation in Kentucky.

To prevent slip and falls related to winter weather, it is important that business owners keep their properties' walking surfaces clear of ice and snow. This may involve applying ice melt right away following a storm. Company owners should also ideally monitor their indoor floors to see if the surfaces are slippery or wet. If these areas cannot be addressed immediately, it is important that owners or managers post signage there.

If companies fail to take the above steps, customers could end up slipping and falling and thus suffering injuries. In this situation, it is critical that they seek medical attention. The reason for this is that a doctor can properly evaluate, document and treat their injuries.

When companies in Kentucky are negligent and cause visitors to slip and fall due to their hazardous property conditions, it is within the rights of the injury victims to file personal injury claims against these businesses, seeking monetary damages. A successfully fought claim may lead to a monetary award that might help with covering associated medical bills. Likewise, the award may be used to address the loss of wages and other losses tied to these types of accidents.
