Slip and Fall Attorneys in Massachusetts
In Massachusetts, property owners have the legal obligation to protect visitors or patrons from injury. Massachusetts premise liability laws state that the owner may be held liable for any injuries that have resulted from unsafe conditions. If you have been the victim of a slip and fall injury stemming from the unsafe conditions at a Massachusetts establishment, you have rights and deserve protection.
Types of Slips & Falls
Some of the most common slip and fall injuries in Massachusetts result from the following conditions:
- Improper snow and ice removal
- Broken sidewalks or steps
- Changes in floor patterns, such as uneven floors
- Ripped carpets
- Broken or weak handrails
- Wet floors
If there are any of these conditions present, property owners have the legal obligation to label the hazard or post warning signs. Property owners can be held liable for negligence if they knew about the dangers and failed to warn others in a timely manner. If this type of negligence has led to your particular injuries, you may need compensation to cover medical bills, future rehabilitation, and lost wages. With Massachusetts injury attorney Stephen M. Forlizzi on the case, we will work to make sure you get the compensation you need to begin your recovery.
