Snow & Ice

Thomas F. Maher

Plaintiff in this matter alleged that, while staying at a hotel, she was caused to slip and fall on snow and ice exiting her vehicle in the hotel’s rear parking lot. Plaintiff alleged that while the hotel’s main parking lot had been plowed, the rear parking lot had not been cleared of snow. Following the incident, plaintiff underwent cervical fusion surgery and two surgical procedures on her right shoulder. Summary judgment was obtained by our office on behalf of the snow and ice removal contractor with respect to both the plaintiff’s claims and the contractual claims asserted by the co-defendant hotel owner.
