Massachusetts Premises Liability Claims

Plymouth, Taunton, and Bridgewater accident attorneys recovering for slips, trips and falls

You feel safe as you walk into your job, your apartment, stores, offices, sports arenas and public parks. Massachusetts premises liability laws dictate that you have the right to expect that all these places are free from perils or that you will be warned about dangerous conditions. However accidents happen regularly because of the negligence of property owners and possessors.

With 38 years of combined experience, our lawyers in Plymouth law firm Studley Law Offices pursue maximum compensation for accidents that resulted from poor property maintenance. We can assist you in recovering for injuries suffered because of:

  • Snow and ice on stairs and sidewalks
  • Cracked and uneven walkways
  • Slippery surfaces
  • Unmaintained building structures
  • Inadequate security
  • Obstructions in aisles
  • Overstocked shelves in stores
  • Unsecured shelving and furniture
  • Construction site injuries
  • Elevator and escalator accidents

Liability for snow and ice accidents

Snow and ice are an inevitable part of life in Massachusetts. Typically, the snow accumulation and ice formation are minor inconveniences, but they can develop into serious hazards if left unattended. For this reason, property owners, landlords and municipalities have a duty to remove the dangerous conditions from stairs, sidewalks, walkways and parking lots. Our Bridgewater lawyers demand compensation for the injuries you suffered because of a slip on ice or the collapse of a structure under the weight of snow. Although you must accept the inclement winter weather, dangerous snow and ice conditions are unacceptable under premises liability provisions.

Security negligence

Criminals are constantly on the prowl for opportunities. Concealed places to hide, easy access to victims and likelihood of escape are factors in deciding where and at whom to strike. Business owners, residential landlords and your workplace can take simple measures to protect you from assailants. If you have been assaulted, our Plymouth personal injury lawyers investigate if the condition of the property at the time of your attack created a security risk, such as the existence of:

  • Overgrown bushes
  • Dim lighting in entryways and hallways
  • Broken locks and windows
  • Malfunctioning cameras and burglar alarms
  • Failure to report known criminal activity on the premises
  • Untrained and inattentive security guards

While law enforcement and the prosecuting attorneys pursue criminal charges against the assailant, our Taunton lawyer demands compensation from those who made the attack possible.
