Burlington Slip and Fall Injury Lawyers
Representing Slip, Trip and Fall Injury Cases
Property owners, business operators, and other responsible parties have a duty to maintain their premises to protect the safety of their visitors, patrons, clients, and even their friends. They must keep floors, sidewalks, steps, and other surfaces free of hazards that could cause injury, but they often fail to do so.
If you’ve slipped, tripped, or fallen and been injured due to the negligence of others, you might be eligible for compensation for your injuries under a theory of law known as premises liability. At DiBella Law Offices, P.C. in Methuen, Burlington, and Boston, MA, our personal injury attorney and team have experience investigating and bringing premises liability cases to trial.
Call us today at (781) 262-3338 - we are ready to discuss your injuries and circumstances and formulate strategies to get you the compensation you may deserve.
Common Slip & Fall Cases
You are likely aware of high-profile court cases in which someone has sued a business or government entity because he or she slipped on a patch of ice or tripped over a broken curb. Such cases grab headlines because of the hefty settlements that ensue. While such accidents are often in the news, these situations are very real and very common, and the injuries that result are often severe.
Slip, trip, and fall injuries are often sustained to the following hazards:
- Uneven flooring
- Poorly secured rugs and mats
- Falling debris from roofs or ledges
- Non-existent or loose railings
- Architectural features of improper height or construction
Holding the Responsible Party Accountable
Commercial landlords often treat building and fire codes as suggestions. When they observe the rules, they can act as if they’ve performed a personal favor to their tenants and visitors, but nothing could be further from the truth. Laws governing rental properties exist for the public's protection. Unscrupulous and/or negligent property owners and managers often count on people remaining ignorant of their rights and quiet about unsafe property conditions. Our firm is here to ensure that the responsible party does not get away with their actions.
