Ice And Snow Injuries Are Typically Preventable

As the weather takes a turn for the worse, roads, sidewalks and stairs become more and more dangerous. Every year, people in New York and New Jersey suffer serious personal injuries in accidents caused by ice and snow. If you have been injured in a slip and fall or car accident this winter, you can take action and get the fair compensation you deserve.

At the law firm of Robert A. Solomon, P.C., we have been helping personal injury victims from our offices in Newark, New Jersey, and New York for over 30 years. Handling a wide range of premises liability cases, we know that property owners and businesses have a responsibility to maintain a safe environment, especially when ice and snow cause particularly bad conditions.

Your Bridge To The Law

When the weather turns cold, ice and snow start to cover sidewalks, staircases and roads. In these conditions, the chances of a slip-and-fall accident become more and more likely. Whether you were injured in a car accident on a poorly maintained road or you slipped and fell on an icy staircase, you can receive compensation for your injuries and get the medical care you need.

  • In New York and New Jersey, both landowners and commercial tenants are equally responsible for removing snow and ice from sidewalks, paths and stairways. The same rules apply for businesses and municipal buildings. Our lawyers are ready and willing to take cases against commercial entities and individuals if they have acted negligently in regards to proper removal of ice and snow.
  • While apartments, stores and office buildings face strict regulation in terms of the removal of ice and snow, the laws do vary for residential buildings. In New York, residents of one-family homes have some responsibility to properly maintain a safe property. In New Jersey, single family homes have no responsibility to clean walks during bad conditions.
  • Whether you have suffered a catastrophic injury or just a simple fracture, if your accident was caused by ice and snow, you can take action to protect your rights. We will help you get the proper medical care you need.
