Massachusetts products liability law focuses on the analysis of defective products, machinery or substances and the injuries that these products cause. A products liability claim can arise from an injury which results from a product as common as a household appliance or one as complex as a multi-million-dollar printing machine. Our lawyers are involved in the complete preparation of claims, from evaluation of Massachusetts law and the facts of the claim, to the hiring of experts, to settlement, or, if necessary, trial. The attorneys of Pellegrini, Seeley, Ryan & Blakesley handle cases in the state and federal courts of Massachusetts.

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.
