Injuries From Negligent Snow And Ice Removal In Ocean County
Snow and ice can leave sidewalks and parking lots slippery, dangerous places. If you or a loved one slipped and fell on a snowy or icy surface, you may have the right to compensation. At Silvi, Fedele & Honschke Attorneys at Law, L.L.C., we can help.
Since 1986, our Toms River-based law office has been helping accident victims throughout Ocean County, Monmouth County and across New Jersey recover compensation after being injured on snowy and icy sidewalks and parking lots.
Slip And Falls On Snow And Ice
In the fall and winter months, snow and ice make sidewalks and parking lots ripe for accidents. The city and local businesses, such as grocery stores, restaurants and other shop owners, have a duty to keep sidewalks and parking lots clear of snow and ice.
When property owners allow ice and snow build up, fail to shovel and fail to put down needed salt and sand, unsuspecting citizens and patrons can slip and fall, getting seriously injured.
Common slip-and-fall injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries, concussions and traumatic brain injuries
- Cuts and bruises
- Neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Shoulder and arm injuries
- Knee and leg injuries
At Silvi, Fedele & Honschke, we help our clients get the compensation they need to pay for medical treatment, make up for lost wages, and reimburse them for their physical pain and suffering.
Forcing Insurance Companies To Pay What Is Fair
If you’ve been injured in an accident, you have one chance to recover compensation from the insurance company. Claims adjusters will do everything in their power to protect their bottom line.
Do not be fooled into thinking insurance companies care about you. They have one goal: settling your claim for as little as possible.
At Silvi, Fedele & Honschke, our lawyers formerly represented insurance companies. We know their defense strategies, and we know how to bring injury claims that maximize our clients’ rights to compensation.
