Snow and Ice Slip and Falls

Homeowners and businesses will be liable for slip and falls on natural accumulations of snow and ice if they do not take reasonable steps to make their property safe for pedestrians. The law recently changed in Massachusetts. Prior to the change, property owners were not liable for slip and falls on natural accumulations of snow and/or ice. This change dramatically increases the chances for recovery for injuries sustained in snow and ice falls and also increases risks for property insurers.
