Chicago personal injury attorneysFor many individuals, the sight of snow can create an unparalleled feeling of joy and happiness.

Slip and Fall Injuries

One of the more prevalent ways of sustaining a wintertime injury is the possibility of slipping and falling. Weather conditions such as snow, ice, and slush can make any street or sidewalk a serious hazard. Although this form of injury does not seem crucial, the possible outcomes can be significant. For instance, a loss of footing caused by snow, ice or slush can lead to:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • TBI (traumatic brain injury)
  • Back and spine injuries
  • Torn ligaments
  • Sprained muscles 

If a slip and fall accident resulting from inclement weather conditions does take place in Chicago, the owner of the property may be held responsible.
