Kentucky is known for having some amazing weather. They are also known for having severe ice situations a few times each winter. Although Kentucky may not always get a lot of snow, they do receive quite a bit of ice. Ice can be dangerous for pedestrians and it is important for property owners to keep their outside area safe.
When Frankfort residents are out and about they expect they will remain safe. Most of the time, the places we enjoy are safe and well-maintained. But, occasionally a serious accident occurs through no fault of our own. Slip and fall accidents are one form of premises liability that can have serious consequences for those who are injured.
Proving fault in a slip and fall injury can be difficult. After all, thousands of such injuries occur each year—some inconsequential, and some deadly. Accidents can occur on almost any type of terrain that has become unsafe: Stairs, sidewalks, yards, or even regular floors. Even though accidents can occur so easily, determining whether the property owner is at fault can be very hard.
