Westwood/Dedham Slip- Trip-And-Fall Accidents Lawyer
Many people shy away from filing a claim following a slip-and-fall accident because they feel they do not have a sufficient case. While most times a slip and fall will not cause a catastrophic injury, it can result in complex fractures or other injuries that leave the individual with chronic pain and other problems that require lasting care. Business and property owners have a responsibility to maintain their property in order to prevent such accidents. Therefore, if you have been injured due to their negligence, it makes sense that they be held liable for the expenses associated with your injuries.

Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents can occur in a number of situations:
- Icy sidewalks or pavement: Property owners and business owners have a duty to keep parking lots and walkways reasonably safe-this includes proper snow removal and warnings about icy areas.
- Wet or slippery floors: While it is reasonable to expect that businesses will require routine cleaning to keep up the appearance for consumers, it is expected that freshly washed floors, slippery entranceways or otherwise wet floors are marked with signs warning of the wet conditions. Failure to warn is negligence.
- Inadequate stairwells/stairways: Landlords and other property owners have a duty to keep stairwells and porches properly lit and to repair broken stairs, broken railings, and other dangerous stairway conditions. Failure to do so can cause people to trip and fall down the stairs.
- Other dangerous conditions: Municipalities, business owners and property owners may also be held responsible for other dangerous conditions, such as uneven pavement, torn carpet, exposed cords or other conditions that contribute to slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents.
