Slip / Trip & Fall Accident Attorney Serving Quincy, MA

Protecting the Rights of Victims Injured on Another’s Property

By law, property owners have a legal responsibility to keep their premises safe, address and remedy potential hazards, and take reasonable action to avoid preventable accidents and injuries experienced by guests. Unfortunately, not every property owner upholds this legal obligation*, which is why many victims seek justice and compensation for their losses by filing slip and fall accident claims.

Your Rights as a Victim of Negligence

Slip, trip, and fall accidents can happen nearly anywhere, including hotels, retail and grocery stores, restaurants, parking lots, and private residences, among others. While some are unavoidable, or caused by victims themselves, many result from preventable hazards and conditions that property owners failed to address. Common types of issues that can cause slip and fall accidents include:

  • Ice and snow
  • Wet, slippery, and slick floors
  • Open holes or uneven walking surfaces
  • Debris, food, cords or wires, and other tripping hazards
  • A lack of adequate warnings to visitors or guests
  • A lack of adequate lighting
  • Stairs or handrails in disrepair

Many of these conditions are either caused by property owners or are things they should know about and address. Under premises liability laws, property owners do have obligations to fix these potential hazards, especially when they caused them or knew or should have known about them, and / or warn guests and visitors about hazards if they are unable to fix a hazard in an immediate time frame.

Failing to uphold this responsibility is considered a breach of duty, and it is grounds for victims injured as a result to take legal action. As a victim of negligence, it is your right to seek hold the negligent party accountable by initiating the personal injury claim process – a process that can be handled effectively when you have the guidance of experienced attorneys like those at Morgan & Murphy, LLP. Our legal team understands the legal elements that must be established in these cases, and is equipped with the insight to protect victims’ interests when working to negotiate fair settlements with property owners and insurance companies, or fighting aggressively at trial.

In addition to negligent property owners accountable for their negligence, victims also have the right to recover their damages, including their past and future medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering. Damages are highly specific to the circumstances involved in a case, as well as the nature of injuries victims sustain and the impact they have on their lives. For example, victims who suffer more serious harm in a slip and fall accident, such as traumatic brain injuries (or concussions), broken bones, or spinal cord injuries, generally have greater damages due to their need for more substantial medical treatment, longer recoveries (if not permanent injuries), and inability to work.
