Hyde Park Premises Liability Lawyers
MASSACHUSETTS INJURY ATTORNEYS IN HYDE PARK AND FRANKLIN
A property owner may be liable for an injury that occurs on his premises if that injury resulted from the property owner’s negligence. Known as premises liability, this means that the owner of the property is responsible for an accident on his property if: the accident was due to a hazardous condition that the land owner either knew about or reasonably should have known about; the land owner failed to take appropriate action to remove the hazardous condition and/or failed to warn others of its presence; and someone is injured as a result of that hazardous condition.
Landowner may be responsible for accidents resulting from the following conditions:
- foreign substance on floor;
- insufficient lighting;
- improperly maintained stairs or porches;
- ice and/or snow on walkways;
- inadequate security.
As seen from these examples, a hazardous condition can be as common as a liquid on the floor of a store. The owner may be liable for injuries suffered by an individual who slips and falls on the slippery floor if the presence of that liquid was either due to the actions of the property owner or his employees, or if the property owner or his employees were aware of the liquid on the floor yet failed to take reasonable precautions to have it removed or to warn others of its presence.
The last thing that someone who is shopping or going out to eat at a restaurant expects is to be injured when doing so. Fortunately, you have the right to be compensated for your injuries when the accident is the fault of the land owner. Click here to see examples of premises liability cases handled by Yellin & Hyman.
