Construction site accidents result in some of the most serious injuries handled by a personal injury attorney. These cases require extensive knowledge of Massachusetts liability law and skill in analyzing complex business relationships between contractors, subcontractors and employees.
In construction site accident cases, our attorneys evaluate construction contracts and the Massachusetts and federal safety codes which regulate work sites. When necessary, our lawyers hire appropriate experts to prove liability.
Often, our attorneys coordinate a construction site injury claim with our client's separate Massachusetts worker's compensation claim. In fact, it is most often in the injured person's best interest to have the same firm handle both of these different, but interrelated, claims.
Our seasoned lawyers prepare these cases for mediation, settlement, and, when necessary, trial. Call (800) 785 - 5399.
You may be able to make a claim if you can show that you sustained injury as a result of a dangerous condition and grocery store personnel knew, or should have known, about the danger. People have received compensation for harm suffered as a result of slipping on produce or spilled product, as well as dangerous parking lot conditions. Again, a crucial element of any slip, trip and fall claim is proof that store personnel were aware of a dangerous condition, or reasonably should have known about it and failed to take reasonable action to assure safety.
You may be able to make a claim if you can show that you sustained injury as a result of a dangerous condition and the apartment owner or manager knew, or should have known, about the danger. People have received compensation for harm suffered as a result of rickety stairs, missing handrails, tattered carpeting and icy steps when landlords have known about a danger and failed to eliminate unsafe conditions.
Certain personal injury claims involving slip, trip and fall incidents require notice to the property owner. Two important examples are 1.) incidents involving ice or snow and 2.) incidents in which the property owner, (or agency charged with maintenance), is a town, city, state or the federal government. The deadline for giving notice may be very short, as few as 30 days. If you are involved in a slip, trip and fall, you should consult a lawyer immediately.
