my ironic injury

Everyone that knows me is well aware of my love for coffee. As I was exiting my local Dunkin Donuts on Thursday a large quantity of snow fell off their roof and right onto my neck....ended up at Urgent Care with scripts for pain meds - muscle relaxers and physical therapy - still very sore today...contacted the landlord but have only spoken to his secretary who tells me to FAX them all my paperwork......how ironic....ouch!

Hope you feel better soon. But I'm not getting the ironic part.

This.

And what's with "contacting the landlord and faxing your paper work?" Are you trying to sue them over snow falling onto you from the roof?

The ironic part is that I do love coffee and I was ingured getting coffee.


Keeping the roof clear is landlord responsiblity that is why I contacted the landlord.

Interesting. I don't live in snow country. I would think this would just be considered a risk of living in snow country.

I don't know the exact laws here where I live, but I do know that we have to shovel and salt our sidewalks because if we don't someone can sue us if they fall in front of our home.

My guess is their insurance will cover the dr visit, PT and meds, at least any copays and out of pocket expenses. OP never said anything about suing. Businesses are covered for things like that.

The PUBLIC side walks along the street, or the one on your property to your front door?

Like I said, I'm not in snow country, but I know if you trip and fall on a public sidewalk, your only recourse here is against the city.

The ones in front of your house...and not just the walkway to your door.

I'm pretty sure anyway.

I guess the sidewalk is considered our property
