Solid Footing: Icy Road

Icy roads are here again. As the temperatures drop and the ground freezes over Strype Injury Lawyers urges everyone to be careful when out and about.

The OPP says that since Friday evening they’ve responded to more than 1,600 crashes, including three fatal, and numerous personal injury wrecks.

The Ontario Provincial Police said the crashes include three fatal collisions, and eight police cars were struck by passing motorists during the incidents, injuring two officers.

It is easy to find ourselves rushing around in our daily routines, however making sure you leave yourself enough time to get to your destination safely is important. With the cold weather comes ice, and it is easy to slip and fall, hurting yourself in the process.

We encourage everyone to take the time to ensure their safety as temperatures dip and the roads and sidewalks become hazardous and slippery.

Learn about motor vehicle accidents that happen on slippery roads.

Slip and Fall: Premises liability deals with the legal liability for injuries that occur on dangerous property, very often involving slip-and-fall accidents. Injuries caused by slips and falls can have long-lasting effects.

If the injuries are the result of a negligent individual, municipality or business, an injury victim can make a claim for compensation for their injuries and ongoing treatments.

Wishing everyone a safe and warm week from Strype Injury Lawyers.
