The cold months of winter bring opportunities for fun activities in the snow.  However, winter weather conditions also bring with them a variety of potential risks for personal injury.  Every year, people injure themselves by falling on ice, straining muscles from shoveling snow or scraping ice from vehicles.  Many of these injuries come in the form of fractures, sprains, strains, dislocations and breaks.
