Boston Lawyer: Slip and Fall Accidents
Under Massachusetts premises liability law, the owner and manager of a property is responsible for maintaining it in a reasonably safe condition. When negligent maintenance results in an injury to a visitor, the victim is entitled to damages for medical treatment and pain and suffering. A premises liability claim might involve a slip and fall accident and back injury, or a fatal assault resulting from security negligence.
These can be difficult cases since it is necessary to prove that the owner of the property knew or should have known of the hazardous condition. At Louison, Costello, Condon & Pfaff, LLP in Boston, our personal injury lawyers have the experience and resources necessary to recover fair compensation for our clients. We are prepared to handle a wide range of premises liability claims, including those involving the following circumstances:
