Remember that during the winter season in Chicago, slip and fall accidents drastically increase. The main culprit for these slip and fall accidents is the snow and ice. The most common place these slip and fall accidents occur are parking lots and public sidewalks. In Illinois, the Snow and Ice Removal Act became in effect in 1979. This act encourages residential owners to clear snow and ice from residential properties. Unfortunately, many property owners do not obey the act and simply do not clear their sidewalks and/or driveways.
