What Should I Do If I Slip and Fall on Ice or Snow?

The experienced Media Personal Injury Attorneys at Gibson & Perkins, PC offer a full range of of legal services to individuals who have been injured through no fault of their own.  We fight aggressively to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

We are often asked as experienced Media Personal Injury Attorneys what can be done if you are injured from a slip and fall on ice or snow.

  • In Pennsylvania there is a law called the Hills and Ridges Doctrine, this means the snow or ice must have been left untreated for a period of time and has formed a dangerous “hill” because of an owner’s negligence.
  • If you fall on black ice that was caused by a person’s negligence, you may have a case under the isolated ice patch theory. This could come from a pile of melting snow that drifted to the sidewalk and froze.
  • However, an owner is not responsible if you fall during a blizzard or storm as this is not a human caused error.
