Slip and Fall on Ice During a Snow Storm in Buffalo

  • These situations depend on the timing of the accident, and on how severe the weather was at the time of the injury
  • If the snow stops falling for long enough for the store owner to clear and salt the sidewalks, that exception will fade away
  • Has the property owner had enough time to properly address the situation?
  • Once the snow clearing has begun, a sheet of ice may be left underneath the clearing
  • It may be argued that the snow was a safer alternative than ice
  • Each case is specific to facts and timing of the situation
