It is crucial that you take action to reduce the likeliness of any injury to a member of the public or yourself at your property. It is unlikely you'll be sued or held legally responsible for any injuries on the path if you have cleared it carefully.
When clearing snow, take care and make sure steps are taken to prevent any paths from re-freezing. The best way to do this is to clear any snow or ice early in the day. This allows the sunlight during the day to melt any ice below. It is also much easier to move fresh snow than snow that has been in place for a considerable amount of time. Cover the path in salt to stop before nightfall to stop it re-freezing overnight. Alternatives to Salt include sand and ash. These will not stop the path icing over but will provide grip. DO NOT use water on the ice. Adding water may create black ice which is particularly dangerous as it can often go unnoticed. It is recommended you use a tablespoon for each square meter.
