Slip and Fall
Have you fallen on another’s property?
Property owners have a responsibility to ensure their property is free of hazards and dangerous conditions like: loose steps, uncovered pavement, broken sidewalks, worn carpets, wet floors, or improper snow/ice removal.
Who is Responsible for my Slip and Fall Accident?
Slip and fall accidents may occur as a result of the negligence of property owners and managers. They have a duty to keep their property free from hazards and under Massachusetts State law, may be held responsible in a premises liability action if they fail to do so properly.
Poor maintenance of buildings, stairways and pathways, as well as poor lighting and slippery floors are some of the causes of slip and fall injuries. Also untreated ice and snow causes many slip and fall injuries resulting in orthopedic injuries including fractured wrists, hands, ankles, elbows, hips, legs and feet.
Proving the negligence of the property owner can be difficult and requires the help of an experienced Massachusetts slip and fall injury lawyer. In order to succeed in a slip and fall action, you will be required to prove that a defective condition existed and that the property owner had notice of the defect.
