Homeowners Responsible For Sidewalk Snow Removal

BOSTON (CBS) — A Supreme Judicial Court ruling over the summer makes it nearly mandatory that home and business owners clear the sidewalks in front of their property.

It’s because if someone slips and falls in front of the property and can prove that the owner should have known to clear the area, a successful lawsuit can be filed.

WBZ News Radio’s Bernice Corpuz talks with David Frank with Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly about the ruling.
