Residential Slip and Fall Injuries
Residential property includes single-family homes, apartments, condominiums, mobile homes, and co-ops. If you slipped and fell on residential property, any number of parties may be responsible, including but not limited to:
- The homeowner
- The landlord
- The tenant
- The homeowners’ association
- The builder or architect who designed the home
Our investigative staff gets to work right away. We will uncover evidence that reveals who is financially liable for your injuries. We will then pursue them aggressively for the compensation you deserve.
Commercial Property Slip and Fall Injuries
Commercial property includes office buildings, retail spaces, malls, parking lots, and parking garages. When a person is injured on commercial property, it is often a business that is liable. Businesses often have much greater financial resources than homeowners, making it easier to win a substantial settlement and collect on it.
Potentially responsible parties for your commercial property slip and fall injury include:
- The business owner
- The property manager
- The maintenance company
- The insurance company

Premises Liability Laws in Massachusetts
Both residential and commercial property owners and managers in Massachusetts must follow the state’s premises liability laws. These laws require the upkeep of real property and that hazardous conditions be addressed promptly.
To hold a property owner or manager liable for your slip and fall injury, we must demonstrate that they failed to address or provide adequate warning of a dangerous condition on the property. Examples of conditions that frequently lead to slip and fall injuries include:
- Loose or missing stairs
- Wet or slippery floors
- Cracked floors or pavement
- Missing handrails
- Unmarked obstacles on the ground
- Poor or inadequate lighting
- Exposed electrical wires
No matter how your injury occurred, our job is to procure evidence that it could have been prevented had the owner or manager upheld their responsibility under the law to maintain a safe, hazard-free property.
