Property Owner Negligence in Boston, MA


When you are injured, your lawsuit is about results. If you enter another’s property, you have the right to expect that the property is safe. Therefore, you assume that staircases are well maintained and sidewalks and lighting are adequate and safe. But what are the property owner’s legal duties regarding providing security?

Property owners are expected to anticipate all possible dangers. If the property is in a high-crime area or if other potential negligent security risks are present, the owner may be legally responsible if injuries occur.

Giving You a Helping Hand after a Stairway Accident

In a world of level pedestrian surfaces, steps and staircases stand out. In just 15 or 20 feet, stairwells can drop a dozen feet or more, presenting a potential danger each time a staircase is used or even approached. To safeguard the public against the dangers of stairwells, numerous laws provide guidelines and requirements to ensure stairs are safe. Laws also provide recourse for people injured when property owners don’t ensure the safe construction and maintenance of interior and exterior staircases.

Attorneys Who Specialize in Sidewalk Injury Cases

You deserve to walk on safe sidewalks and parking lots. Businesses, homeowners, and homeowners’ associations tend to focus on maintaining a safe interior environment. Most organizations and buildings include a parking lot or driveway, as well as sidewalks. Who is responsible when accidents and injuries occur outside a building where people park and walk? It is important that you speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer to discuss your rights. What seems like a simple accident often results from hard-to-detect negligence, such as:

  • Poor Lighting
  • Poorly Maintained Surfaces
  • Poor Sidewalk Design
  • Negligent Handling of Snow and Ice
  • Unremoved Debris

You Can’t Avoid What You Can’t See

When people think of dangerous conditions on residential and commercial property, they often think of wet floors or icy steps. The landlord’s responsibility also extends to the duty to provide adequate lighting. Any area can be unsafe when lighting is poor. Inadequate lighting can also lead to a decrease in security, which increases the chance of assault. Reach out to our team if you think you may have a legal case involving inadequate lighting.
