Association Not Liable for Member's Slip-and-Fall Injury
Facts: A member sued his condo association and the management company for injuries he suffered when he slipped on an ice patch. The association had a contract with a snow removal service. The member alleged that because of the negligent removal of snow, several large patches of ice accumulated on the walkway. The trial court dismissed the member's lawsuit because under Illinois law, anyone in charge of residential property is not liable for any personal injuries allegedly caused by a sidewalk's snowy or icy condition unless the person's acts amount to clear wrongdoing.
