There are a number of parties that can potentially be liable in the event that you are injured in a Massachusetts slip and fall accident. Massachusetts slip and fall law is complex when it comes to determining the liable parties for your Massachusetts slip and fall accident. In general, Massachusetts property owners have a duty to maintain their premises in a way that does not present unreasonably dangerous conditions to visitors and anyone else who may be expected to enter their property. Hazardous snow or ice conditions must be remedied by a Massachusetts property owner within a reasonable amount of time. In addition, faulty lighting and uneven or cracked stairways must be corrected as soon as possible. In many cases, it may be found that a groundskeeper or other individual or business entity entrusted to maintain the property is liable if a Massachusetts slip and fall accident takes place.
In the event that a Massachusetts property is leased to a commercial tenant, property maintenance liability may be transferred to the commercial tenant and the property owner may be released from liability. It is also not unusual for a Massachusetts business owner to share liability with a Massachusetts landlord or tenant. If a Massachusetts worker is entitled to Massachusetts worker’s compensation benefits, the Massachusetts employer is usually not responsible for the injured Massachusetts slip and fall victim’s pain and suffering or other non- economic damages.
In Massachusetts, there is a three year statute of limitations to file a lawsuit for a slip and fall accident. A Massachusetts slip and fall personal injury victim, therefore, generally has three years from the date of the accident to obtain a lawyer, gather evidence, and settle his or her claim or file a lawsuit.
