Claimant slipped and fell on ice in Court 9. All residents were directed to move their vehicles to the main drive of rec center lot unit the lots were cleared and salted. She fractured her left hip and required surgery with the insertion of 2 rods. This was reported with a letter of representation in March 2016. The claimant did not park where she was instructed to park. Lots were being cleared and there was an obvious covering of snow and ice in the lot where the claimant parked. She was shoveling the snow and walked over a patch of ice causing her to fall. Suit was filed in 2018. Liability was doubtful. The way in which she fell and the fact that the snow fall had ended less than 12 hours before the incident. Town ordinance allows 2 hours of time before clearing has to be complete.
