SNOW AND ICE HAZARDS IN MINNESOTA
Everyone who lives in or visits Minnesota is well aware that our region sometimes has harsh winters. It is no surprise to anyone that ice and snow sometimes create safety hazards for pedestrians and motorists alike. If you fell and injured yourself on an icy sidewalk, an insurance claim adjuster handling claims against the property owner is likely to claim that you should have watched out for yourself more vigilantly.
However, there may be valid counterarguments in your favor, depending on:
- Who or what created the hazard
- Whether there was a lack of proper upkeep of the premises
- Whether common-sense measures to protect pedestrians had been taken
AFTER A SLIP-AND-FALL INJURY ON ICE
A person or an organization may have been negligent and caused your snow- and ice-related fall injury. Was a downspout pointing toward a sidewalk, creating an ice-making hazard? Had property management failed to apply sand or salt to an icy surface in a high-traffic area? Digging into the facts of your case is likely to reveal who should be responsible for compensating you for your injuries, such as:
- A broken bone
- A head injury
- A spinal cord injury
- A back injury
