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 personal 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.

Our Commitment to Hyde Park Slip & Fall Accident Victims
Hyde Park residents love the small-town feel of Boston’s southernmost neighborhood, resulting in its nickname ‘A Small Town in the City.’ Slip and falls might occur at home, at work, or while walking to the MBTA station to catch the Fairmount Shuttle to downtown Boston. Hyde Park’s elderly population are especially at risk for falls, like elders across Massachusetts and the nation, but slips, trips, and falls continue to plague the workplace, too. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), more than 17% of workplace injuries that result in disability occur because of falls.
