How Can a Slip-and-Fall Lawyer Help?

Slip-and-fall accident claims can be difficult to prove and win as a victim in Massachusetts. If your case involves a soft-tissue injury such as bruising or a muscle sprain, for example, your injury could be difficult to prove without evidence available such as x-rays. Property owners may have extensive resources to fight liability for your slip-and-fall accident. Hiring a lawyer can give you access to tools, information and methods for protecting your rights that you otherwise would not have. Your lawyer can take over the difficult and complex aspects of your slip-and-fall claim while you concentrate on healing from your injuries.

What Causes Quincy Slip-and-Fall Accidents?

Slip-and-fall accidents can cause serious injuries such as bone fractures, traumatic brain injuries, pulled muscles, back injuries, disk herniation and lacerations. Medical care could cost you into the thousands. If someone reasonably should have prevented your slip-and-fall, you could be eligible for compensation. Certain hazards cause more slip-and-fall accidents than others.

  • Food waste or debris
  • Spilled liquids
  • Poor company clean-up policies
  • Mopped or waxed floors
  • Greasy floors
  • Water leaks
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Obstacles in pathways
  • Ice, sleet or snow

At Sweeney Merrigan Personal Injury Lawyers, we know how to investigate fall accidents to find evidence of fault or negligence by a property owner or other parties. Then, we can file premises liability claims in pursuit of fair compensation by the legal deadline in Massachusetts.

Who Can Be Held Liable for a Slip-And-Fall Accident?

After a slip-and-fall accident, there are various parties who may be held liable for the injuries and losses you have suffered due to their negligence. In order to pursue the fair compensation you are owed, you must file a personal injury claim. While the claims process may be overwhelming, one of our slip-and-fall accident lawyers can help you identify who may be liable so you can build a strong case. The following parties may be held liable for your slip-and-fall accident case:

  • Owner or renter of the premises
  • Employer
  • Employees
  • Other customers or invitees
  • Drivers
  • Pedestrians or passengers in vehicles on the property

Does a Property Owner in Quincy, Massachusetts, Owe You Compensation?

It is a property owner’s responsibility in Massachusetts to reasonably prevent slip-and-falls as well as other accidents, including dog attacks and swimming pool accidents. All property owners must take steps such as inspecting their properties for hazards, repairing known defects and warning visitors of existing dangers. Ignoring or skipping these steps could cause preventable accidents and visitor injuries. In these situations, the victims may have the right to file civil suits in pursuit of financial compensation.

If your lawyer can prove that another property owner reasonably would have been able to prevent your slip-and-fall, you might receive financial compensation from the defendant in question. A successful claim could repay you for your past and future lost wages, medical bills, legal fees, pain and suffering, and more.
