Slipped on a sheet of ice? Snow storms and freezing cold weather create treacherous conditions throughout New York City.
Every winter, pedestrians and commuters are seriously injured in slip and fall accidents.
In March 2017, the stairs of New York City Subway entrances were so dangerous that people had to use the handrails to cautiously lower themselves down the steps.
Compacted snow filled the steps of the Flushing Avenue G train Subway entrance, effectively rendering the staircase a sheet of ice. Several passengers reported serious bodily injury resulting from falls in the station.
The Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) which operates the station said the snow removal needs of other train stations prevented timely clearing of snow from the staircases in Flushing, Queens.
