Sleet. Snow. Ice. Winter brings a lot of things including injury

Well, the weather outside is frightful and personal safety would be so delightful. While this time of year is filled with holiday cheer, it’s also filled with sleet, ice, and snow. We were just hit with our first snow storm. How was it commuting? How was it Christmas shopping? How was it just walking down the sidewalks and parking lots? Personal injury can happen at any moment so it’s important to take extra precautions this time of year.

Make sure that you and your children have proper footwear to keep warm and give you grip on slippery floors and streets. You should also always be mindful of your surroundings. Fallen debris and poor visibility can get you in a lot of trouble. You may be rushing to find the perfect gift but the holiday hustle and bustle can bring leaves, melted slush, and water indoors. If you have fallen and hurt yourself, you need to call a Fraser Valley personal injury lawyer that is sympathetic to your case and has your wellbeing in mind.

It’s sad to say but some business and property owners can be negligent when it comes to creating a safe environment for patrons and the general public this time of year. While it’s understandable that people can get caught off guard when a sudden snowfall hits, ice, sleet, and wet floors should be addressed in a timely manner. It’s important to know your rights if you have fallen while shopping or walking on the street outside. Routley & Company is Fraser Valley’s personal injury lawyer.
