Can you hold a property owner responsible for a fall?

As another winter descends on New Jersey, treacherous conditions abound on roads as well as sidewalks and walkways. Slipping and falling on snow-packed, icy walkways may seem like a necessary evil for those of us who live here in the northeast. However, it's important to know that property owners, private and commercial, have some responsibility for keeping their property as hazard-free as possible for visitors.

Who is liable if your child suffers a playground injury?
