Slipping on Ice and Snow – Can I Make A Claim for Compensation?
We often envisage snow as the type of weather we look forward to and that will allow us to have endless fun, including snowball fights and skating. If this happens it is usual only for a limited time before the chaos starts and unfortunately, accidents are common in this weather. If you have had a slip on ice or snow and it has left you injured, there may be a case for a compensation claim Skibo.
Types of Injuries
There are many different injuries which can result from a fall on the ice or snow and these can range from minor to more serious injuries. You may end up with cuts and bruises as a result of your fall but it could also cause you to endure broken bones or even head injuries. The seriousness of your injury will affect the result of your compensation claim.
Who is to Blame?
It is difficult to determine who is to blame for this type of accident, as it depends on various factors. If you fall on the ice or snow on the pavement and end up injured, it would be difficult to pin point anyone to take the blame for this. However, if you are injured on the road, the responsibility may be with your local council if they have not had gritters out to take care of the ice or snow. In addition, if you fall in a shop or mall as a result of ice which has been brought in by a customer and there is no signage to alert you to the danger, you may be able to make a compensation claim in Skibo against the store owner.
