As winter comes to a close, it’s important to look back and see what the most common injuries were during the season. The winter conditions can be harsh, leading to a rise in accidents, whether the increase comes from auto accidents or slip and falls, injury doesn’t stop for the holiday season.
We’re going to recap on the most common types of injury from this holiday season, and how our attorney team here at Robert J. DeBry and Associates can help if you’ve been a victim of the injuries discussed. Here are the most reported injury types during the winter season.
Vehicle Crashes and Collisions
While Salt Lake City may look beautiful covered by a blanket of snow, it also leads to an increase risk of being involved in an auto accident. Depending on the severity of the storm, vision of the road can be decreased, and traction may not be the best. When driving in heavy snowfall, it is important to take it slow and give the car in front of you extra room.
If you happen to get into a crash, contact your local attorney to see what can be done in your case. If the accident was not your fault, we can get you the compensation you deserve for any injuries.
Slip and Fall Accidents
This type of accident is common on sidewalks, steps and even in public places such as a grocery store. Ice can form quickly when it’s cold out, so proper maintenance should be done in high-traffic pedestrian areas to avoid a slip and fall.
If you find yourself slipping on ice while entering a store or when walking down a sidewalk, an attorney can help get you the compensation you deserve if you’ve faced any injuries.
Accidents happen, but they’re more likely to happen in the winter. If someone’s negligence or recklessness has caused you personal injury, contact our team of attorneys here at Robert J. DeBry and Associates for a free consultation.
