A “Slip and fall” accident, sometimes called a premises liability accident, can be serious. The lawyers at Stanzler Levine have decades of experience handling slip and fall (and trip and fall) accident claims in Boston, Metro West, the South Shore and throughout Massachusetts. Property owners owe a duty to all lawful visitors to use reasonable care to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition. If you have a slip and fall accident and are injured because a property owner fails to maintain its property properly, are entitled to be compensated for your injuries. However, proving that a property owner failed to maintain its property in a reasonably safe condition is not always an easy task. Therefore, it is important that you preserve any evidence surrounding the circumstances of your fall (such as photographs and witness contact information) and contact one of our attorneys who will provide a free consultation to evaluate your case.
Slip and Fall Accidents and Injuries
Some of the most common slip and fall accidents (and trip and fall accidents) that we handle involve, snow and ice, wet floors, poor maintenance, defective stairways, uneven surfaces, poor lighting, as well as numerous other hazards. Injuries from slip and fall accidents can be serious and often result in fractures, broken bones, head injuries, spinal injuries and even lacerations.
We successfully handle minor slip and fall cases to complex cases from the insurance claims level through trial and appeal if necessary. While the vast majority of Massachusetts slip and fall claims settle with the insurance company without the need for a trial, at Stanzler Levine we prepare every case as though it’s were going to be presented to a jury. Our trial preparation generally leads to larger settlements in slip and fall cases, while avoiding the uncertainty and stress of a trial. In order to protect your rights and ensure that you are full compensated for your injuries, contact one of our attorneys for a free consultation.
