    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!

    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? :confused:

    I think it's ironic because she loves coffee so much and going to get coffee got her injured that day??

    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:confused3

    Yes, DH went out to get milk last month and slipped on the ice right outside the store. We had an ER visit, 2 CT scans and 1 x-ray. The store's insurance is paying all the medical bills (they're covered for $5,000 per incident).

    Yup, just googled the laws in the city in Canada I have an aunt and uncle in.......they have to clear the sidewalks within 48 hours of a storm ending.
