Surviving a New England winter is a skill most Massachusetts residents have perfected, but driving in inclement weather is in a whole different category. Statistically speaking, October tends to be the month with the most accidents in
Massachusetts, however, as the winter approaches- the weather increases the chances of car accidents. In addition, many slip and fall accidents happen during this season. Snow and ice related accidents can present many challenges to their respective victims, and it’s important to consult with an attorney to discuss the rights and proper procedures regarding these cases. Accidents may occur if a property owner fails to remove snow and ice from their home or business.
The most common injuries from snow and ice accidents are broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and concussions. Unfortunately, these injuries require emergency and long-term medical treatment. Even with insurance, treatments tend to be costly and can deter the victim’s ability to obtain sufficient employment. In cases like these, victims should pursue damages against the negligent party.
