As the weather begins its cold turn and the ice starts to claim our windshields, you may find yourself wondering to what extent can a landlord or commercial tenant be liable in the event you slip and fall on snow or ice and injure yourself on their property.  Below is a brief overview of the duties imposed on property owners/commercial tenants in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.  Whether you have a case against a city, town or a state is not addressed in this blog.  Please be advised that cases against cities, towns or states often have strict, statutory prerequisites to the bringing of a claim and you should consult an attorney as soon as possible in the event you have been injured due to snow and ice in an area controlled by a city, town or state.
