Cold Wet Weather Increases Slip and Fall Risks
As the battle between winter and spring continues, temperatures are wildly fluctuating throughout Kentucky. Plenty of rain and even snow have fallen in recent days.
Most people are on guard during the winter months when they’re out and about, but they often become a little more relaxed as the calendar moves towards spring. However, slick pavement, sidewalks, and interior floors can be dangerous no matter what time of year it is.
At Sam Aguiar Injury Lawyers, we’re here to help anyone who was hurt in a slip and fall accident that was caused by another person’s or party’s negligence. If you suffered an injury due to any of the following reasons, call us today for a free consultation:
- Slick floors– Whether your fall happened in a public or private space, there’s a good chance the owner knew or should have known about the potential dangers—including standing water or ice—and addressed them before you got hurt.
- Uneven walking surfaces – Chipped and broken pavement, loose steps, and ripped carpeting are all slip and fall hazards, and few property owners can escape liability when someone gets hurt due to any of those hazards.
Other common causes of slips and falls include loose floorboards, poor construction craftsmanship and materials, recently mopped or waxed floors that aren’t clearly marked or roped off, and even unrepaired potholes in sidewalks and parking lots.
Don’t wait to get the help you deserve after your slip and fall injury. Call our Louisville slip and fall accident attorneys today.
