Massachusetts Premises Liability Attorneys
What is Premises Liability?
Every property owner owes a number of duties to any person lawfully on the premises. Property owners must use care to remove hazards from a property, or give others appropriate warnings of hazards. Further, when residential or commercial landlords are informed of defects, they must take care to repair these defects in a reasonable time frame. When property owners fail in these duties and someone is harmed as a result, the property owner can be sued under a legal theory of premises liability.

Types of Premises Liability Claims
Premises liability claims can encompass a wide range of situations, including:
- Slip-and-fall accidents: Individuals can fall on slippery floors, on icy parking lots or sidewalks, or other surfaces. Many slip-and-fall injuries are caused as a result of snow and ice accumulation. Slip-and-falls can lead to broken bones, soft tissue injuries, and more severe injuries such as head and spine injuries.
- Dog bites or animal attacks: All too often, children are the victims of dog bites. These injuries can cause severe scarring and lead to significant emotional trauma. Unless a person was trespassing, tormenting or abusing a dog, dog owners are strictly liable for dog bites under Massachusetts law.
- Injuries caused by negligent or inadequate security: Poor lighting, inadequate surveillance, broken doors and other property defects can give criminals the opportunity to cause harm to others. Property owners must take appropriate measures to address these defects. When guests or patrons suffer harm as a result of these injuries, our law firm can take action.
