Snow & Ice Injury in Long Island
Recovering Compensation After Your Injury
Our winters can be frigid and roadways, sidewalks and other areas can become
hazardous to those who drive or walk on icy surfaces. Snowy, icy roads
can lead to deadly accidents, and slippery, icy sidewalks are the cause
of countless injury accidents in the communities of Long Island (Nassau,
Suffolk and Queens). If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident
due to icy or snowy conditions, whether a slip & fall or
car accident, it is crucial that you immediately contact a legal professional to assess
the case and advise you how to proceed in seeking compensation for damages.
Although icy and snowy roads contribute to dangerous car and
truck accidents, in many cases it has been determined that the driver was driving far

Truck drivers particularly are trained in how to operate vehicles in icy
and snowy conditions, and if they have violated their own safety procedures,
they may still be considered liable in a court of law, depending upon
the exact circumstances of the case.

some effects are not immediately apparent.
