Snow & Ice Accidents in Queens | What You Need to Know

As winter rapidly approaches, the unfortunate reality is that slip and fall accidents due to snow and ice will be on the rise. If you are someone who is injured in a snow and ice accident this winter, there is a very good chance that you are entitled to financial compensation. Our Queens personal injury attorney is here to help. Please continue reading and speak with our firm to learn more about snow and ice accidents and what we can do for you. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What should I do if I am injured in a snow & ice accident?

If you are injured in a slip and fall snow and ice accident, you should do the following:

  1. Call the police.
  2. Notify the property owner.
  3. Ask any witnesses for their contact information.
  4. Take pictures of the snow/ice that caused you to slip and fall.
  5. Seek immediate medical treatment.
  6. Hire an experienced Queens personal injury attorney who can work to uncover all additional evidence, such as surveillance footage of the accident as it happened.

Do I have a valid personal injury claim if I slip and fall on an icy surface?

If you can prove that the property owner had a duty to clear away the snow/ice hazard within a certain period of time, failed to take action to do so, and that you were injured and sustained significant damages as a result, there is a very good chance that you will have a valid premises liability claim. Our firm can help you pursue it.

How long will I have to file a premises liability claim in Queens?

If you are injured in a slip and fall accident due to snow and ice in Queens, you will have to file your premises liability claim within the state’s statute of limitations. If you were injured on a property owned by an individual, the statute of limitations is, generally three years, giving you three years from the date of your accident to sue the liable party. That being said, if you were injured on a property owned by a municipality, you will have a far shorter period of time to file a Notice of Claim so you can sue the municipality responsible for your injuries. Our firm is ready to help you today–all you have to do is give us a call.
