Winter Weather Leads to More Slip and Fall Injuries, Says Rizio, Hamilton & Kane, P.C.


Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/26/2017 -- The slip and fall injury lawyers serving Greater Philadelphia, Rizio, Hamilton & Kane, P.C. are urging people to watch where they walk more so than usual this winter, due to the inevitable increase in slip and fall injuries that will occur.

"It's not surprising that slip and fall injuries skyrocket during the winter," said Rizio, Hamilton & Kane, P.C. attorney, Michael Kane. "We're encouraging people to pay attention to potentially icy situations, and we're recommending that property owners take appropriate steps toward keeping their facilities and spaces safe."

Approximately 17,000 people are killed as a result of slip and fall injuries in the United States annually, a substantial percentage of which take place during the winter when walking conditions are at their most dangerous. Furthermore, many slip and fall accident victims are over the age of 65.

"Slip and fall injuries are far more prevalent among senior citizens, so we ask that those folks exhibit the utmost cautiousness while they're out and about this winter, and to look out for situations where potential unmarked slips could ensue," said Kane.

Rizio, Hamilton & Kane, P.C. represents slip and fall injury victims whose perpetrators ignore or neglect responsibility. "Unfortunately, not every negligent property owner wants to admit fault for a preventable accident that takes place on his or her premises," said Kane. "If you find yourself in a situation as such, it's time to call an experienced slip and fall attorney."
