Q: A guy just slipped on an ice patch 1n my driveway. What do I do?
A: Is he hurt? If so, take reasonable measures to help. It's the right thing and can protect you from liability. And if you're kind and fair, people are less likely to sue.
Q: Me again. Made sure he was okay. He banged his elbow. Maybe his back. Seems fine. Can he sue?
A: Yes, but that doesn't mean he can win. Did you do something to cause the ice? Or was it hidden from view?
Q: Nope, and nope. I got his number. Should I text him and say I'm sorry?
A: Don't admit fault. Sounds like you're okay. You acted reasonably and doing the right thing is legally smart. And use salt next time, okay
