Slip and Fall Injuries By Bill Groner on November 28, 2012

With the winter season rapidly approaching, you have to be especially careful where you walk.  The attorneys at Worby Groner Edelman have handled hundreds of cases in which the injured party slipped on ice that was left by a careless job of snow removal.  Whether you are just walking on the street or entering a retail store, you must be extremely cautious.  In many instances, the homeowner or store keeper shovels the snow away, but leaves patches of snow in the are where people are walking.  Then, the temperature goes above freezing during the day and the snow melts away.  However, at sundown, many times, the temperature drops below freezing and a layer of ice can form.  We have utilized the services of meteorologists to testify that after the snow melts and the temperature goes down, the puddles of water turn to ice.  A key point to keep in mind is that If you suffer an injury as a result of a slip and fall on municipal property, there are only ninety (90) days within which to serve papers on the municipality or your claim will be forever barred for failure to file these papers in a timely fashion.  Again, our personal injury attorneys at  Worby Groner Edelman have handled hundreds of these types of cases to a successful conclusion.  So, if you or someone you know have suffered injuries as a result of a slip and fall, call us immediately and we will answer any questions you have.  Remember, there is never a fee unless we are successful!
