Premises Liability

Property owners, both commercial and residential, have a legal duty to provide a safe environment for anyone who is lawfully on their property. This area of the law is also known as premises liability. It applies to owners of businesses, restaurants, offices, shopping malls, parking lots, hotels, homes, apartments, condominiums and other buildings. We have been winning major verdicts and settlements for premises liability victims throughout Massachusetts. Here are some examples:

  • Defective floors and stairways
  • Defective or inadequate lighting
  • Falls from roofs/windows due to lack of guarding
  • Falls due to snow/ice
  • Falls due to defects on walkways/parking lots
  • Injuries from lead paint
  • Injuries from falling debris
  • Injuries from unguarded openings
  • Injuries from household hazards
  • Electrocution/electrical and gas explosions
  • Pool accidents/drownings
  • Fire causing property damage and personal injury, including burns
  • Injuries caused by recreational vehicles and recreational equipment
  • Inadequate supervision of children
  • Negligent control of dangerous instrumentalities such as firearms
  • Falls from foreign substances on floors/stairways/walkways
  • Injuries occurring on elevators or escalators
  • Dog owner liability
