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.

To learn if you have a legitimate case worth pursuing, you should consult immediately with a Pennsylvania slip and fall attorney. An attorney will:  
  • examine the details of your case;
  • determine if someone else may potentially be held liable; and
  • explain what your next step should be.
