Injury and workers’ compensation cases involving slips and falls on snow and ice during winter in America’s northern states, and southern states this year, continue to be a perplexing subrogation puzzle for insurance claims and subrogation professionals.

During the winter months, our office sees a flood of cases involving slips and falls on ice, snow, and slush during winter conditions.

It is important to understand when and how liability attaches in such cases – and when it does not.

Life is such that accidents happen, and they do occasionally happen because the injured victim is careless and not paying attention.

The key to success in these types of cases is knowing the difference between such instances and those in which the negligence of a third party is responsible for injury.
