Slip and falls often result in minor injuries that include a few cuts and bruises, but sometimes they result in life-altering, serious injuries, or even death, especially in those over age 65 with about 40 seniors dying from unintentional falls in Massachusetts each month. The Massachusetts Department of Public Health reports almost 190,000 emergency room visits and more than 30,000 hospital stays from falls each year across all age groups. Whether dining or shopping on Centre Street, heading to enjoy six miles of trails or canoeing at Millennium Park, or heading to catch the MBTA train at Bellevue, Highland, or West Roxbury stations, residents of West Roxbury run the risk of slipping and falling when property owners don’t maintain a safe environment for visitors.

Under Massachusetts Law, property owners are legally required to warn visitors of dangers on their property and keep their property safe and secure. If you sustained an injury after a slip and fall accident and it was a result of a negligent property owner or someone’s intent to harm, you might be entitled to compensation related to your injury.

Take These Steps After a Slip & Fall Accident in West Roxbury

If you fell and sustained an injury in West Roxbury, you might be concerned about next steps. Your attorney will give you specific instructions, but here are some immediate tips to ensure your slip and fall case goes as smooth as possible:

  • Seek medical attention. If you didn’t go to the hospital immediately after you fell, you need to get checked out as soon as possible. Some injuries, especially head traumas, don’t present with symptoms right away and your health should be the top priority. Additionally, this provides documentation of your injuries for your case. If your regular physician is not available, head to nearby Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital. The local VA hospital is also in West Roxbury for those who have served in the armed forces.
  • Take pictures. Use your cell phone to take pictures that might support your case including photos of the hazard that led to your fall and your injuries.
  • Don’t chat about your fall with others and risk admitting some fault for your accident and don’t post about your accident on social media. It’s in your best interest to only talk about your accident with your lawyer.
