When you live in a place like Chicago, you are truly able to enjoy all four seasons. Our famous blustery and snowy winters, hot summers, and pleasant springs and falls provide Chicagoans and tourists ample opportunities to enjoy the weather they like most. It also exposes people to a wide variety of accident risks that change with the seasons.
Accidental injuries happen every day, no matter the season. These incidents can involve vehicles, defective consumer products, bicycles, or slippery floors, and at any time of the year. All, however, share one thing in common: When someone else’s negligence causes them, victims are typically entitled to compensation for their injuries.
The types of accidents that are most associated with specific seasons follow below. Of course, this information is meant to be general, and accidents of any type can occur at any time of year. For more information, or to discuss a particular accident with a Chicago personal injury attorney, call Abels & Annes, P.C., today at (312) 924-7575 or send us an email through our online contact form.
