One of the biggest questions we get, especially in the winter months, is what happens when I fall on a sidewalk that wasn’t shoveled or wasn’t properly shovel. And this area of the law gets very, very confusing.

A lot of times there’s a difference between whether or not someone had an obligation to shovel walkway that an individual has fallen on. Then there’s also issues of if they did shovel the walkway, did they shovel it properly and in a non negligent manner?

Many times if they shovel, but they leave chunks of snow or ice that lead to someone’s fall, that’s still a claim that can be brought. So it’s really important to sit down and assess exactly what the potential claim is and how the remnants or piece of ice that an individual has fallen on came to be their.
