slip and fall Archives

Taking action following a slip and fall accident

Upon entering the property of another person, we are usually under the impression that certain steps have been taken to ensure our safety. This remains true regardless of whether the property is a private residence, public store, restaurant or government building. Unfortunately, some property owners fail to take proper precautions, which could result in a serious injury to a visitor or patron of the property. Failing to clear the floor of spills and debris is the frequent culprit of a slip and fall accident.

Representing victims injured in slips and falls

Massachusetts residents are accustomed to having to watch where they are going. In addition to having to be careful in parking lots, on the property of different business and even at the homes of their friends and family, there is also the reality that Massachusetts is a place where there are a lot of older, cracked sidewalks and other paved areas. Moreover, in the winter, it snows and freezes, so there is always a need to be mindful of slippery snow and ice during those colder months.

Slip-and-fall accidents and workers’ compensation benefits, premises liability damages

Serious workplace accidents come in a variety of forms and can occur in a variety of circumstances. One common cause of injuries and deaths, particularly in the construction industry, is when workers slip and fall. Wise businesses work to minimize the risk of slip and fall accidents, both with respect to clients or customers and workers, but some employers simply don’t do enough to prevent these accidents.
