Snow and an ice are considered an act of God but there are certain time limits you have, or the property owner has to remove the dangerous condition. In other words, to shovel that sidewalk or to put down salt to stop ice from forming.
If steps are maintained in negligent fashion, then the homeowner or the owner of that property is responsible for any injuries that occur while falling on those steps.
The bottom line is that property owners are typically responsible for maintaining a safe environment on their property or warning visitors of hazards. This is generally true for homeowners, landlords, business owners, and even government agencies. If property owners are negligent in their duties and a slip and fall accident occurs as a result, they can be held liable.
