Slip and Fall Accidents in Massachusetts
A slip and fall injury can happen when you least expect it — in the parking garage, at a restaurant or on the sidewalk. In any case, when you’re dealing with a slip and fall injury, your first concern is getting the medical attention you need. In the days that follow, other questions may surface: How did this happen? What are my legal rights?
In many cases, a property that is in disrepair or has hazardous conditions can be the source of a slip and fall accident in Massachusetts. For 25 years, Worcester-based premises liability lawyer, Peter Ventura, has dealt with fall down accidents like yours and can help you figure out what to do next.
Working with Victims to Figure out What Led to Their Fall Down Accidents
A slip and fall accident sounds simple enough. You slip or trip. You fall. You get hurt. However, the critical legal question is whether the property owner or others did something or failed to do something which caused or contributed to your fall and injury. At the law firm of Peter Ventura, we focus on determining what the property owner’s responsibility is and what your rights are to financial compensation.
When you come in for your free consultation, we’ll discuss what factors may have led to your accident, including:
- defective stairs;
- defective sidewalks;
- absent or defective handrails;
- parking lots;
- snow and ice; and
- negligent property management
Proving a Property Owner’s Negligence on Behalf of Worcester Victims
When it comes to proving a property owner’s fault for a slip and fall accident, premises liability lawyer, Peter Ventura, expects property owners and their insurance companies to challenge anyone’s injury claim. One of the most common defenses is that the property owner didn’t have the opportunity to know about the hazardous condition.
To combat this, we’ll investigate and use every resource at our disposal to establish a valid claim, including:
- State and local building codes;
- Sanitary regulations;
- Workplace safety codes;
- Witness testimony; and
- Surveillance videos.
When you contact our Worcester firm, you’ll find we are responsive, prompt and thorough. Just as important, we’ll present all the legal options available to you, so you can take the course of action that is best for your future. We know you’re in pain, and we can help.
