Illinois Supreme Court Clarifies Snow-Shoveling Rules

Effingham, IL / Effingham Radio

(Springfield, IL)  —  Not that you’ll need them this week, but the Illinois Supreme Court is clarifying the rules for shoveling your walk.  The high court says homeowners aren’t on the hook if someone slips and falls as long as they made an effort to shovel snow and ice.  But the court says homeowners are on the hook if they ignore ice and snow, particularly from some other form of negligence on their property.
