Have You Suffered a Slip & Fall Accident in Haverhill?

Various industries have flourished in Haverhill, Massachusetts since its incorporation in 1860.

Today, alongside many business offerings, Haverhill also provides a variety of attractions and activities for leisure, including Winnekenni Castle, Willow Spring Vineyards, and the Ski Bradford Resort.

How Slips and Falls Often Occur

Slips and falls can happen for a number of reasons. If you suffer a slip & fall accident at another’s premises (whether a person’s home, workplace, business or a public area) and the owner is at fault in some way, they can be liable to pay compensation. The injured party may file a premises liability lawsuit outlining how the owner’s negligence caused their fall and resulting injuries.

Common examples where owners are liable for slip & fall accidents include:

  • Slippery floors/surfaces
  • Poorly lit areas
  • Tripping hazards
  • Cluttered spaces
  • Broken staircases
  • Uneven pavements/surfaces

Slips and falls are more common in certain spaces, including shopping centers, parking lots, supermarkets, stadiums, gas stations, and sidewalks. The prominence of this type of accident in these places is likely due to their high pedestrian use and ability for a range of different hazards to be present.

Common Injuries

While it’s easy to assume that a slip and fall is not a particularly dangerous type of accident, these accidents can cause devastating consequences. Some of the more serious injuries a person can sustain from a slip & fall accident include traumatic brain injuries, neck and spine injuries, broken bones or fractures, and serious lacerations or cuts. Less severe injuries can include pulled or strained muscles, lingering bodily pain, cuts, scrapes, or bruises.

The types of injuries a person sustains, and the severity of these, depend on a number of factors, including the exact hazard that caused the person’s slip or fall, the height they fell from, their physical condition before the accident, and the surface they landed on.
