5 Tips to Avoid a Winter Slip & Fall in Pennsylvania
Posted on Jan 28, 2012
In a report from Go Erie, winter weather in Pennsylvania can keep emergency rooms busy with serious injuries resulting from a slip and fall. Some of the injuries that are more common include fractured wrists, back pain, and head injuries.
Here are 5 tips that can help you avoid becoming the victim of a winter slip and fall in Pennsylvania:
wear appropriate footwear (such as nonslip or neoprene soles);
keep walkways clear of any ice or snow;
be cautious and alert while walking;
older adults should use a cane or walker; and
try to break your fall if you can (which can prevent more severe injuries).
Although you can make every effort possible to avoid a slip and fall, there is still the chance that the negligence of another could lead to one. If an owner fails to maintain their property or fails to correct a hazardous condition, they could be held liable.
