An enormous snowstorm rocked the Northeast yesterday, piling snow over a foot high in some places and impacting an estimated 50 million people. Cities are always quick to bounce back, clearing out as much snow as they can and salting the roads and sidewalks so that they're back to normal as quickly as possible.
Unfortunately, no matter how hard they try, recovering from a storm like this is never perfect. There have already been dozens of accidents reported as a result of the storm, and many more will inevitably pour in as the days go on. Some of these occurred during the snowstorm itself, when conditions were their worst, but others happened the day after, when people attempted to return to school, work, and their normal routine.
In fact, we covered one such accident yesterday. The truth is, accidents like these are all too common, and they fall under the umbrella of a "Slip and Fall." A slip and fall case can refer to any dangerous condition that causes somebody to fall and hurt themselves, such as a puddle of grease left uncleaned in a restaurant. However, after a snowstorm we see a ton of slip and fall cases that come specifically because of icy, uncleaned sidewalks and roads. If you ever fall because someone didn't properly clean up the area they're responsible for, there's a chance you may qualify for funding.
