Slip-and-fall injuries due to ice can result in serious injuries. Broken bones are common and some, such as hip fractures, can be extremely serious. Brain injuries result more often from falls than from any other cause, including organized sports. Slipping on ice can also result in serious injuries to the spine, such as painful compression fractures. This is why clearing ice from your property is so important. Other companies focus on snow clearing, but we take another approach, locating pedestrian high-risk locations for slips and falls and ensuring all areas are free of snow and ice.
Failure to provide adequate ice maintenance is considered negligence on your part. You may be held liable for any damages, including medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages. The average cost of a slip-and-fall injury is between $30,000 and $40,000. That figure does not include the potential reputational harm done to your business if word gets around that you didn’t provide adequate snow removal services.
We understand that it is important to treat and clear your sidewalks, entryways, and parking lots before the day begins. That’s why we arrive at your property early before anyone else gets there so that your property is ready for business. Additionally, we offer you the following benefits:
Too much salt is harmful to the environment and to your property, leaving behind a white residue on your parking lot and potentially damaging the grass and concrete. We work with you to strike the right balance between protecting your property and our water tables while keeping people safe. Salt application spread rates will be established for your property and will be used each time salt is applied to maintain safe service level agreements.
