The winter months bring with them all the joy and pleasures of snow, including all the winter activities that come along with it. Although with all that joy, there is still room for accidental injury. When a building’s owner negligently fails to take care of their property and doesn’t remove the snow and ice, the public is left vulnerable to slipping and falling as a result. If you slip and fall on someone else’s property and suffer substantial injuries, as a result, you may be entitled to just and fair compensation for your damages. Contact one of our expert snow and ice accident attorneys, experienced wrongful death lawyers, or our knowledgeable slip and fall attorneys here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates to help guide you through the complicated litigation process so you can begin to recover.
Earlier this year, a doorman shoveling the steps at his Upper East Side, New York City building died, when he slipped while shoveling snow, tumbled down the stairs and had his throat slit as his head crashed through a window. Miguel Gonzalez, 59 years-old, was clearing the stairs leading from the sidewalk to the basement lobby entrance when he lost his footing at around 9:30 a.m. The impact shattered the left window pane and left a pool of blood at the bottom of the steps. Mr. Gonzalez, who suffered deep cuts to his neck and face, was rushed to the Metropolitan Hospital, but couldn’t be saved. He was pronounced dead within hours.
