Massachusetts Slip & Fall Accident Lawyers
In Massachusetts, property owners may be liable if they did not properly maintain their property or failed to warn visitors about possible dangerous conditions. Often, a slip and fall injury is the result of someone slipping or tripping on something in or on the property that the owner knew about and failed to correct. Nearly always, the property owner has one or more insurance policies in place should a slip and fall accident happen on their property.
We all know insurance companies cannot be trusted. Their goal is always to pay out the least amount possible, regardless of who is hurt and why.

Workplace Slip & Fall Accidents
Slip and fall injuries can happen in any working environment. In fact, falls are one of the most common types of injuries in any workplace. When these injuries keep you from working and supporting your family, it is important that you receive workers' compensation benefits to cover your medical expenses and lost wages. Unfortunately, insurance companies are not your friends in these matters, and will take great measures to deny or minimize the value of your workers' compensation claim.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a slip and fall accident, it is critical that you have an experienced lawyer to guide you through the workers' compensation process. At Percy Law Group, P.C. we're here to do just that.
Slip & Fall Accidents: The Preventable Accident
Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere, but often occur at the following locations:
- Apartment buildings
- Grocery stores
- Convenience stores
Injuries often are caused by the owner failing to properly maintain their property such as when liquids or debris are on the floor or there is torn carpet, uneven sidewalks, or broken railing or banister. Another common source of premises liability claims involve dog bite injuries. A property owner or keeper of an animal may be subject to strict liability for injuries caused by the animal because the owner did not properly safe-keep the animal. Parking lot or parking ramp assaults also can result from negligent security. This can be from inadequate lighting, a lack of security or other negligent condition. Stairway and stairwell accidents are caused by broken steps, missing railing or other legally negligent conditions. Occasionally, inadequate security in a building allows criminal activity to occur that results in injury to the building's occupants or customers. Some buildings or premises are required to maintain a certain level of security, and inadequate security that leads to injury can result in liability.
