Western New York's largest combined personal injury and workers' compensation attorney firm, Lewis & Lewis P.C., warns New York citizens about the dangers of slip and fall accidents while walking on ice. Winter Storm Janus proved to be harsh and created dangerous conditions for pedestrians.
According to USNews.com, Winter Storm Janus brought record snowfall to the region, with some areas reporting over a foot of snowfall.
“Winter isn't over quite yet. This time of year can get especially dangerous around New York," said Emily Downing, attorney at Lewis & Lewis. "It's easy to slip on ice and have your entire world turned upside down."
Downing also said that it is important to take smaller strides to prevent falls, and always know the conditions before leaving the house so that proper clothing such as snow boots and heavy coats can worn.
Lewis & Lewis is asking those who have been injured in a slip and fall accident to seek legal advice in the event they may be owed a settlement for their injuries.
