Massachusetts Slip & Fall Accident Attorneys

Holding Negligent Property Owners Accountable

Slip and fall accidents are incredibly common and can happen anywhere and at any given time when a property owner or manager is negligent in the maintenance, repair, or general upkeep of their property. During winter, ice and snow play a big part in making property dangerous.

Property owners are required to safely and properly remove snow. These types of cases are known as “premises liability” and fall within the category of personal injury law.

At Morgan & Murphy, our team of attorneys is dedicated to the area of this law and have represented thousands of victims of slip and fall accidents with successful results. Whether an injury was caused by defects or hazards on a property, dangerous conditions in stores, ice and snow, or poorly maintained buildings, our skilled attorneys have been able to obtain much-needed compensation on behalf of our clients to cover medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

If you sustained injuries that were caused by unsafe conditions or hazardous defects on someone else’s property, contact our premises liability attorneys today at (508) 966-7254 for a free consultation.

What is Premises Liability?

Merchants and property owners owe a duty of care to those who visit the premises and are expected to exercise reasonable care in keeping aisles, passageways, floors, and other areas in a reasonably safe condition, or to warn visitors of possible hazards.

If you were involved in a slip and fall accident, you should:

  • Avoid making a detailed statement in regards to fault
  • Obtain the names of owners or managers of the property in question
  • Write the names and contact information of any witnesses
  • Preserve your footwear and clothing
  • Seek medical attention even if you believe your injuries are minor
  • Report the accident to the landowner but never give recorded statements to insurance adjusters

Types of Slip & Fall Claims

At Morgan & Murphy, we have handled a vast range of slip and fall cases, including those that involve:

  • Ice and snow
  • Leaky pipes
  • Supermarkets and retail stores
  • Parking lots
  • Trespassers
  • Construction sites
  • Defects in decks and stairways
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Homeowners

Proving Negligence in Premises Liability Cases

Just like other personal injury cases, it is crucial to prove negligence in a premises liability case. Owners are responsible for injuries caused by dangerous property conditions if they were aware of the condition or should have been aware of it and had the opportunity to warn visitors before an injury occurred.

Oftentimes, landlords and property owners or managers are aware of the conditions, defects, or hazards that exist, so if you were injured on someone else’s property, it is likely you have a viable case.

Just because slip and fall accidents are common does that make them any less serious than other accidents.
