Attorney Russel Bopp: If they slip and fall on ice and are injured, one of the first things they’re going to ask is: Is somebody else responsible for my injuries?
That’s going to depend on the circumstances. It’s going to depend first on: Who’s the property owner? Is it a government entity? Is it a commercial business? Is it a private residence?
Second is going to depend on their status. Were they an invitee or a licensee? Were they there for their own purposes or were they there to further the purpose of whoever owns that property?
Additionally, when they slip and fall on ice, they have to be aware of how long the ice had been there. When did it accumulate? And did the property owner know of that dangerous condition and have an opportunity to cure it? Do they have an opportunity to shovel or put down salt? Those types of things.
If they have any questions about whether they have a claim for injuries after they’ve slipped and fallen on ice, please give the attorneys at Marcus and Mack a call.
