With the winter season still holding on and another storm on its way, avoiding potential lawsuits is as simple as just shoveling and salting your property. Injury lawyers pay significantly for airtime on radio and television this time of year, making everyone aware of their rights if they had an injury slipping on a sidewalk which wasn’t plowed, shoveled or had a path cleared. It is the responsibility of all business and home owners to provide this much. So, being proactive by clearing your sidewalk or pathway, while also insuring it doesn’t freeze back over by using salt could help you save thousands of dollars. For businesses, check your insurance policies, because slip and falls aren’t covered under some policy’s and need additional coverage on your business insurance to protect you if such an incident occurs.
