Q:  I know the weather is great now, but still, I’ve always been curious: If ice falls off a condo tower and hurts someone, who is liable? Is the condo corporation responsible for making sure people passing by are safe?

A: Once a snowstorm ends, the condo corporation must remove any snow and ice that poses a danger to pedestrians. Snow and overhanging ice can accumulate very quickly without warning during the cold winter months. If the corporation cannot remove the ice and snow in a timely manner, then danger signs and bright cones should be placed on the sidewalk until the maintenance crew is able to push the snow and ice to the street below.
