Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If you fell at work, going or coming, this is a workers compensation claim. If the lease with the company made the company liable for clearing snow and ice, then it is the company that is liable, not the landlord and if the company is liable then your only claim here is under workers compensation. You cannot sue your employer for a work injury such as this outside of workers compensation and that was a right the employee lost when the states enacted the workers compensation laws making the employer strictly liable for injury to the employer.
