Who is at fault when a lot isn't plowed?

Cherry Hill, NJ |

My husband was called into work this morning (Saturday) after a snowstorm last night left 3 inches of snow on the ground. The lot at work hadn't been plowed and he slid into the fence trying to park the car damaging the car and the fence. is it his fault, or is the company at fault for not having their lot plowed and ready for workers to arrive?

Likely his. Report the incident to your carrier.

We just won a case where the found the owner 60 % at fault and the snow removal company 30% at fault. (The woman who fell was 10%). Fortunately in your case no one was injured. Your own insurance company will pay your car and fence damage. I hope it wasn't our parking lot :).

Report it to your insurer, if they want to go after the property insurer, they'll handle it.

Your husband would simply report this to his insurance company to resolve.
