HARRISBURG – Rep. Thomas Murt (R-Bucks) has introduced a bill (H.B. 1672) to limit the liability of snow contractors only to accidents that are their fault.
Recently many property managers have begun including in their contracts with snow removal contractors clauses that place liability for accidental slips, trips and falls on snow contractors, even those accidents the contractor had nothing to do with. This has led to sky-rocketing liability insurance premiums for snow removal contractors.
The PLNA Government Relations Committee will consider this legislation at its December meeting. If you have any thoughts on the issue, please contact Gregg Robertson, PLNA’s government relations consultant via email or 717.238.2033.
