Snow & Ice Accidents in Philadelphia
Have you been injured due to patches of ice from potholes, cracked sidewalks,
rain gutters and melting piles of plowed or shoveled snow that is allowed
to refreeze without being salted during the winter months? There are a
number of dangerous conditions that could potentially lead to a
slip and fall accident during the winter months in Philadelphia. Snow and Ice can hide or make
it impossible to see uneven sidewalks, holes or ditches, broken stairs etc.
Property & business owners are responsible to ensure their premises
are safe for customers and people passing by. Slip and fall accidents may occur due to missing warning signs regarding
ice and snow, lack of salt to prevent ice on walkways, paths, and entry
and exit ways, poorly maintained and salted parking lots, and failure
to close off unsafe areas. Attorney Thomas Murphy has experience handling
premises liability cases involving a variety of accidents due to ice and snow, and our team
can help you seek compensation from the property owner.
