Know how to walk on wintry precipitation

Even though it doesn't often snow in the Atlanta area, it is important that everyone knows how to handle it when it does. Many people focus on driving in the wintry weather, but you should also know how to walk around in it since just about everyone will have to venture out in it at some point.

One of the most important things that you can remember in these cases is that you need to wear the right gear. Make sure you have on winter clothing to help keep you warm, so you don't have to rush to get indoors. You also need to have on the right shoes. Don't ever try to wear heels in the snow. They might look nice, but they don't have a good grip and make it easier to fall since you have to try to balance.

Even if the ground looks clear, there is a chance that there is black ice if the conditions are right. Additionally, it is possible that snow could cover uneven spots on the sidewalks and walkways, so you must watch for that too.

If you do fall, try not to go forward since you could hurt your face. Instead, try to land backward so that your hips and backside take the brunt of the fall. This won't prevent you from being injured but it might minimize the injuries you do face.

There is a chance that you might be eligible to seek compensation from the property owner or renter if you are injured in a slip and fall on their property. Finding out if this is possible can help you to decide how to proceed. Compensation can help you with medical bills and other expenses related to the incident.
