Negligent Property Maintenance: Slip and Fall Accidents in Massachusetts
Premises liability cases in Massachusetts come in many forms, but they frequently all have one thing in common: negligent property maintenance. When you’ve sustained a serious slip and fall injury, Peter Ventura, an attorney in Worcester, can help. Mr. Ventura doesn’t just base his practice out of Worcester; he was born and raised here. Having someone familiar with the area where your fall down accident occurred can make a big difference when you need fast action and a thorough investigation and examination of the facts of your case.
We’ll Discuss the Specifics so We can Figure out How Best to Help You
Attorney Peter Ventura provides a free consultation, so you can get a better idea of your legal options. In order to determine if negligent property management may be to blame for your injuries, we’ll take a closer look at what caused you to fall in the first place.
For example, some common hazards that pinpoint a lack of maintenance include:
- Carpet that is ripped or torn at the edges;
- Parking lots with uneven concrete;
- Defective handrails;
- Stairs with missing tread; and
- Walkways and sidewalks with potholes or plant roots jutting through them.
While premises liability law in Massachusetts calls for businesses and individuals to take care of their steps and walking areas, it also calls for property owners to provide a safe environment for visitors, customers and passersby. When owners fail to do this and others get hurt as a result, victims may have recourse in the form of a Massachusetts premises liability claim.
We’ll Handle the Details of Premises Liability Law So You Don’t Have To
A slip and fall accident can occur virtually anywhere. There is always the chance you could slip or trip and fall. That chance increases when the property hasn’t been properly maintained.
This is true at:
- Apartment complexes;
- Parking garages;
- Office buildings; and
- Any public or private place
Figuring out if a business or individual is negligent or liable and how to prove how their negligence led to your injury can be difficult if you don’t deal with the intricacies of these laws on a daily basis. For instance, if your accident occurred in the parking lot of a local retailer, who do you hold liable for negligent property maintenance — the retailer, the property management company, or the landlord? If your accident occurred on municipal or government property, how do you go about filing a claim?
During each and every stage of your premises liability case, slip and fall injury attorney Peter Ventura will be available to answer these questions, address your needs through the injury claim and put your mind at ease.
