Slip and fall accidents account for more than a million injured people in the United States alone each year. During winter months, when snow and ice covers the streets, Americans are at an increased risk of slipping and falling. There are some ways to lessen your risk of injuries; there are other ways to get the compensation you deserve if you do fall as a result of someone else’s negligence and through no fault of your own.
One way to practice safer travel this winter is to wear the proper footwear. Shoes and boots that have visible tread on the bottoms stand a better chance of protecting you from slips and falls. Another tip is to look ahead of you to see where your feet are going. Try to anticipate black ice in the early morning hours when it is just formed. Walking over ice takes special care, so be sure to walk slowly, shift your weight carefully, and plant your feet firmly with each new step.
