Slip & Fall

Massachusetts Slip & Fall Attorney

“Slip & Fall” accidents usually occur because a property owner fails to remedy or repair a condition on his property that poses a danger to the general public. Some dangerous conditions that commonly cause slip and fall accidents are:

  • Wet floors
  • Damaged steps or stairs
  • Inadequate or broken handrails
  • Snow and ice on walkways
  • Spills or foreign substances
  • Broken or uneven sidewalks
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Potholes
  • Torn or faulty carpeting


Property owners and businesses can also be held liable for a slip and fall due to:

  • Inadequate or negligent security —  failure to secure the premises
  • Falling products —  inadequately secured property

In general, property owners have a duty to remedy any dangerous conditions that they know or should know about. Failure to fix a dangerous condition is likely a breach of their legal duty and grounds for damages. Available damages include compensation for medical expenses and lost wages as well as pain and suffering. Depending on where you were injured, the responsible party may be a private citizen, a corporation, or a government entity. Bringing a suit against the government is very different from bringing one against a corporation or private citizen.
