Sabatini and Associates Retained In Fractured Elbow Slip and Fall Case

Sabatini and Associates has been retained for a personal injury case involving a fractured elbow. The injury was caused by an accumulation of ice on a residential driveway.  Property owners have the legal responsibility under Connecticut law to make reasonable efforts to clear snow and ice from their walkways.  Such reasonable efforts include shoveling or plowing the snow and sanding the ice.  While the property owner is under no legal requirement to sand and salt during an active storm or snowfall, once the precipitation ends, the property owner is then responsible for snow and ice removal within a reasonable time.
