Many people do not fully grasp the reach and scope of premises liability lawsuits. We all understand that if you are injured at another person’s house, they can be held liable for your injuries, but did you know that the same can be said for almost any property? Anything from amusement parks to public pools to retail stores can be liable for injuries that you sustain on the property as long as negligence on the part of the property owner contributed to the injury.
Of course this leaves the significant problem of proving the owner’s role in the circumstances of your injury. You cannot simply suffer an injury on someone else’s property and make them pay for it. It is your responsibility as the victim to prove that there was a clear and present danger on the property that the owner could reasonably have been expected to know about. You must also prove that the owner did not make an effort to fix the problem or warn others about the danger.
For many accidents, providing this proof can be difficult. Accidents happen very quickly, and most victims are understandably concerned about their well-being, which hampers their ability to focus on environmental factors that could have contributed to the accident. But we have experience handling premises liability cases in Massachusetts.
