Slips and Falls Lawyer in Massachusetts & NH
There are over 8 million slip and fall accidents in the United States each year. The injuries from a slip and fall incident can be significant, especially for the elderly or handicapped who are already dealing health issues. A slip and fall injury can result in lacerations, sprains, fractures, broken bones, back and head & neck injuries, concussions, or even paralysis. The consequences can be massive medical bills, lost wages, or even permanent disability. Anyone who has been the victim of a slip and fall injury on someone else’s property such as a business has rights. A person who is not insured and has serious slip and fall injury at the workplace can lead to workers compensation claims and heavy medical bills. The first step toward protecting your rights and ensuring you get what you deserve is to contact the law firm of George C. Malonis.
In Massachusetts and New Hampshire, property owners have a legal obligation to maintain their property and either keep it free from hazards that can lead to slip and fall, or else they must properly warn visitors or customers of those hazards. If property owners fail to meet these obligations and a slip and fall injury occurs, they can be held liable.
Slip & Fall Hazards
Typical hazards that can lead to a slip and fall injury can include the improper removal of snow and ice, weakened or broken steps and handrails, torn carpets or uneven floors, holes or ditches that can lead to falls, and many more issues that could be proven as negligence. When a slip and fall injury occurs, the property owner and their insurance company may try to get you to settle for an amount that might not be sufficient considering the extent of injuries. They may even try to get you to settle before you even know the full scope of your injuries and what amount you may need to recover. When you have George C. Malonis in your corner, the insurance company will know that you not only know your rights; but also that you will settle for nothing less than what you deserve.
