When a pedestrian is injured on the premises of another individual or business by slipping on ice or some other slippery substance, it is called a "slip and fall" injury.
Each case is based on whether or not the premises owner allowed a dangerous condition to exist for a prolonged period of time or if they knew the condition existed and did nothing to prevent the injury from occurring.
When a landowner or landlord shovels the snow from their property and does a poor/insufficient job, the landowner/landlord can be liable for the injuries suffered by the person who slipped and fell.
Although injuries may not seem substantial at first, sometimes these slip and fall accidents can cause aches and pain for a long period of time and require continued physical therapy. That's why it is important to receive medical treatment as soon as possible to determine what types of injuries you may have sustained.
