New Jersey has been unseasonably cold this winter season, and winter is far from over. Along with frigid temperatures comes the increasing presence of snow and ice. So, what duties do commercial landowners have in this regard? It is without question that a commercial landowner has a duty to exercise reasonable care for the safety of invitees to the property, and may be held liable for failing to do so. This includes the removal of snow and ice. This has been the law in this state for several decades.
