Be Ice Conscious

Slip and Fall / Bad Weather / Black Ice / Oviedo Winter Park Lawyers / Beers and Gordon P.A.With all the reports of cold weather and the ever so slight thought that Central Florida might, just might see snow, one very serious concern may be getting overlooked: ice. Local news stations across our region have indicated that temperatures will dip below freezing at a time when the rain has been intermittent. In other words, normally wet surfaces outdoors could just as easily turn into iced surfaces, creating a higher risk of unexpected slips and falls.

The best thing you can do under these weather conditions is to anticipate the ice and walk more cautiously. If you have boots, that certainly doesn’t hurt. But the area most dangerous is the road. If you plan to cross over a wet road, then please, anticipate ice and dress in such a way as to ensure drivers will see you as you move a little slower. Compared to the hurricanes we faced down last year, a little cold weather is unlikely to cause any catastrophic damage, but we still ask that you be careful as the risk of icy conditions increases. Be safe.
