Slip and Fall Refresher – Basic Services and Reports from CompuWeather

Slip and Fall Victim on IceContributed by Patti Robertson, CompuWeather Forensic Order Specialist and Account Executive

Like it or not, for those of us in the Northern Latitudes, the snow will arriving in the not-to-distant future and that means people will be slipping and falling in it, and in the ice that accompanies it.  Many of our clients have purchased our slip and fall/snow and ice reports in the past, but there are probably just as many who think we only handle weather-related property losses.  For those of you who have never tried our slip and fall reports, here is what you can expect.

The standard report is a site-specific narrative analysis of precipitation type and amount with start and stop times, daily high and low temperatures, and daily snow and ice “cover” or “depth”.  Snow and ice cover is the amount of snow and ice on the ground at the start and end of each day, taking into account what was already there, what was added during the course of the day, and what was lost due to melting and compaction of the existing snow pack. Many clients think it is necessary to have the report cover a lengthy period in order to capture the snow and ice that might still have been left on the ground from earlier storms.  However, our meteorologists are able to determine the daily snowfall depth, and by making it part of our standard report, it may shorten the period of analysis that you require.  Our reports also include tables and graphs of precipitation and temperature data for illustrative purposes.   The minimum report charge provides an analysis of up to three days of your choosing.

Keep your eye out for our future blog postings when we will talk about special options that are available to customize your slip and fall report so that it meets your specific needs. Contact Us to have a sample report sent to you.
