Icy Conditions

Jeffrey S. Sieben - SiebenCarey "Know Your Rights" AttorneyDecember 23, 2014

Many Minnesotans suffer serious injury from sudden falls caused by icy sidewalks and driveways.

Many of these injuries could have been easily prevented. It is your duty to salt and sand icy conditions and walking paths. Minnesota law allows a reasonable time period after a snow storm to salt and sand. If you own your own property and are expecting customers or guests, you should take steps to make sure your walkways are clear of ice. Generally, a failed attempt to remove snow and ice can create an artificial condition subjecting the one who created the condition to liability, as seen in Kragel v. Walmart Stores, Inc. 537 N.W.2d 699, 707 (Iowa1995).

Many of these serious often orthopedic injuries can be prevented through more diligent monitoring of walkways. Please walk carefully and if you are a home or business owner, remember to salt and sand after snow storms.

My boyfriend was hit by a car and while all the attorneys he talked to said he didn't have much chance of a case, SiebenCarey took him on and gave him a fighting chance. He's still recovering, but SiebenCarey is making it a lot easier.

In need of a personal injury attorney? Well you're if you're reading this you're in the right place. You'd be hard pressed to find more competent attorneys than the ones here at SiebenCarey.

They took my case to trial and an amazing job presenting the facts and fighting for my best interests! Three years ago I was unsure of what my future would bring; now that it's over I can rest a bit easier. With SiebenCarey as my counsel, I believe I had the absolute BEST representation a person could've asked for. I knew that I wanted the absolute best representation when searching for an attorney to handle my case and I most definitely received it.

If you need a personal injury attorney, look no further. Can't recommend highly enough.
