Slip and falls remain to be some of the most insidious accidents across the nations. Often, we catch ourselves, dust our hands and backside off, get right back up and continue walking. Other times, slip and falls result in serious, even life-threatening injuries. In fact, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health reports about 186,000 emergency department visits and about 33,000 hospital stays during a year period were a result of unintentional falls. Hyde Park residents might fall while shopping and running errands at Logan Square or Cleary Square, while heading to a gathering at Riverside Theater Works, or while taking an afternoon walk in the Fairmount Hill neighborhood to take in the period architecture. Regardless of where you might have taken a spill, if your injuries are a result of a property owner’s negligence, you might be entitled to compensation for your losses.

While coping with the physical recovery, many victims lose income because of time away from work while medical bills continue to come in from injuries.
