Shovel or not to shovel? What’s Ohio’s law?

snow-shovelerAs far as Ohio law goes, homeowners don’t have a legal obligation to shovel sidewalks due to a natural accumulation of snow and ice, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t at least try to maintain them. In the case Brinkman v. Ross, the Ohio Supreme Court ruled that you are walking at your own risk when Mother Nature calls.
Many local cities and municipalities have established snow removal ordinances. If your city or township has such an ordinance, then you have a responsibility to maintain your sidewalks. See our updated release that includes links to several local ordinances and how to find out more about your responsibilities as a homeowner. (VIEW RELEASE)
