Snow Removal Safety
Whether at home, school, work, grocery stores or shopping centers, in the wintertime you and your loved ones come in contact with the results and handiwork of snow removal equipment and snow plow trucks during inclement weather.
When snow and ice have not properly been removed, accidents can happen. A young lady in La Grange was leaving work one winter day and stepped sideways to avoid a patch of ice. She ended up slipping on another icy area, which caused her to fall and break her ankle. Dixon Law Office was able to help her win her lawsuit against the property owners due to improperly plowed snow.
Snow plow and snow removal contractors have certain standards that must be met. The law generally holds that snow plow operators must push the snow to a safe location. They have a duty to do their job in a way that does not make the parking lot, street or driveway dangerous.
If you or a loved one was hurt slipping and falling on snow or ice, you need an experienced personal injury attorney to help get you the compensation you deserve. For more than 20 years, our team at Dixon Law Office has helped hundreds of personal injury victims, including in cases of improperly plowed snow.
