Atty Haymond,

I live in Enfield and last week while getting out of my car and walking into a meeting in Springfield, I tripped over the cement parking block that is at the front of a lot of spaces in parking lots. The block was covered with snow, probably from a plow, so I didn't see it! My toe is broken and I may have to have surgery on my shoulder as a result of the fall. Have you ever dealt with this type of situation?
