Cambridge, MA Premises Liability Lawyer
Massachusetts Personal Injury Lawyers with over 50 Years Combined Experience Representing Those Injured in Premises Liability Accidents
Many premise liability cases we have handled over the years involve accidents with serious injuries suffered by our clients that were preventable and avoidable if the property owner fulfilled its obligation to keep the property safe and took the necessary steps to repair dangerous conditions. Property Owners have an obligation to maintain their property in a reasonably safe manner whether a home owner or a restaurant owner or landlord. The law provides a property owner must exercise due care to remedy any unsafe conditions and not create dangerous conditions for visitors on their property.
If an individual is injured due to negligent maintenance of the property, the victim injured has a personal injury claim against the property owner. If you have been injured at someone else’s home or business, you may have a claim for compensation for your injuries including damages like medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.
There are many types of cases caused by a property owner’s negligence including:
- Slip and falls
- Dog bite and dog attacks
- Improperly maintained premises
- Swimming pools
- Defective stairs or stairways
- Porch collapse
- Sexual assaults
- Snow and ice
- Uneven surfaces
- Poor lighting
- Negligent security
- Unmarked steps
- Slip and falls on water or other substances
- Failure to make necessary repairs
- Falling objects such as store merchandise.
Premises liability includes many types of accidents on someone else’s property including snow or ice, a slippery floor, broken stairs or railing, improper maintenance, oil, an obstruction, foreign object or substance or other defect on the property.
The negligent property owner is responsible for your injuries and damages resulting from an accident on the premises. You can receive compensation for your injuries including your financial losses and pain and suffering. This includes current and future medical bills, lost wages and lost earnings, and non-economic damages including pain and suffering and loss of consortium suffered by a spouse or even your child.
Too often we see property owners such as home owners, restaurant or store owners or landlords refusing to accept responsibility for the harm they caused to our clients. We aggressively pursue the insurance companies to obtain the compensation our clients deserve and hold the negligent premise owner responsible for the harm caused.
