Generally, owners, occupants, and property managers who are responsible for the maintenance of the property would be liable in slip and fall accidents.
Generally when a personal injury lawsuit involves snow or ice, the injured person must show that the responsible party did not take reasonable steps to make the property safe. Furthermore, the injured person must show they exercised reasonable care for his own safety at the time of injury and did not assume the known risks of being on the property.
Courts will also look at a number of significant factors to determine whether the responsible person is liable for the slip and fall injuries. These include:
An experienced personal injury attorney will be familiar with what facts are critical to your case and will be knowledgeable as to the proper courses of action. If you were injured from slipping and falling on snow or ice on someone else's property, you should speak with an attorney who will protect your interests.
