Whether it’s a customer who slips and falls on your snowy parking lot or an employee who was injured after spending a lot of energy shoveling snow, you will likely have to shell out a significant amount of money on legal and medical costs. In fact, according to a recent study, a workers compensation claim for snow-related injuries amount to an average of $48,000.

Snow removal services can help rid your entire lot of this unwanted snow and help improve its overall appearance.
- Avoid auto accidents on your lot — Although snowy roads are much more dangerous, a snow-covered parking lot will often result in many auto accidents. When parking, customers and employees will likely lose control of their vehicles and end up crashing into other vehicles and structures. You will likely end up having to pay for these damages, as well, so it’s best to make sure your entire parking lot is snow free.
