If you have suffered a slip and fall injury while on someone else’s property in Massachusetts, you should know your rights. The Injury Law Office of Amanda Dowgiert can evaluate your case and injuries and help you pursue a personal injury case against those who may be responsible.
There are many negligent conditions that can lead to a slip and fall incident.
Some of the most common slip and fall situations in Massachusetts include:
- Improper snow and ice removal
- Broken stairs, railings, or sidewalks
- Change in floor pattern
- Torn carpets
- Holes or cracks in floors
- Weak steps or floors
- Wet floors, spills not cleaned up properly or in a timely manner
- Lack of proper lighting
- Lack of warning or hazard signs
- Any other hazard or issue that isn’t repaired or addressed in a timely manner
Any one of these scenarios can lead to injuries such as concussions, lacerations, abrasions, head injuries, broken or fractured bones, sprains, and knee/hip/back injuries. For the elderly or handicapped, any kind of slip or fall injury can lead to a worsening of a previous condition or any health conditions in general.
A slip and fall injury victim may also have to deal with medical bills, lost wages due to being out of work, or other expenses after the incident. There may be the need for ongoing care or specialty equipment, such as a walker or wheel chair. A victim may be injured so severely as to not be able to work again, or go back to a career they trained for.
