  • cracked, damaged, or poorly maintained walkways and flooring;
  • broken steps or missing handrails;

How To Prove Liability in a Boston Slip and Fall Case

Proving liability in slip and fall cases can be particularly difficult because property owners are often protected by liability insurance. Liability insurance is designed to protect property owners from financial loss in the event of an accident on their property, meaning that the insurance company will often try to minimize or deny your claim even if the property owner was clearly negligent.

At Jim Glaser Law, we are all too familiar with the tactics used by insurance companies to deny claims, and we know how to combat them. Our experienced premises liability injury lawyers can investigate your case, obtain the evidence needed to prove liability, and negotiate with the insurance company to obtain a fair settlement for your injuries and losses.

What Comes Next?

You can begin the process of recovering compensation for your injuries and losses by submitting your unique premises liability case through our online form or by calling us directly for a free case review.

Once we determine that you have a viable case, your attorney will immediately begin collecting evidence to build a strong claim for compensation. This may include gathering medical records, witness statements, video footage, bank statements, and any other relevant documentation to prove that the property owner was responsible for the dangerous condition that caused your injuries.

In premises liability cases, the property owner may be protected by liability insurance, which can make it challenging to recover compensation for your injuries. 

However, when you work with Jim Glaser Law, you can be confident that we will handle all negotiations with the insurance company on your behalf. We will tirelessly argue for your rights and ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

If a settlement offer is presented, we will provide you with expert advice and guidance to help you make an informed decision. You can accept the settlement offer or decline it, and we will continue working for you until the check is in your hands.

Slip and Fall Accident FAQs

Premises liability refers to the legal responsibility of any home or business owner/property manager to keep their property safe and free from hazards. When the person responsible for a property is negligent and allows others to suffer injury, they can be held liable for the damage they cause. While slip and falls are the main form of premises liability, other examples include dog bite cases and incidences of electrocution by exposed wiring.

A slip and fall accident can occur on private, business, or government property. These are some of the common sites where falls occur:

  • Construction sites and other workplaces
  • Swimming pools
  • Grocery stores, shopping centers, restaurants, bars, and other retail establishments
  • Parking lots, sidewalks, and driveways
  • Public restrooms
  • The homes of family, friends, and neighbors
  • Escalators and sidewalks
  • Hotels, resorts, amusement parks, and inns
  • Stadiums, sporting arenas, and other entertainment venues

Never assume your fall is just an “accident” that you caused through your own negligence. It is always in your best interest to discuss the details of your accident with our experienced Boston slip and fall legal team.

In Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire, those injured in a slip, trip, or fall accident on someone else’s property would have three years from the date of injury to file their claim for compensation. 

However, every case is unique and the longer you wait, the less chance you have of receiving your compensation when you need it. If you put off filing for too long, you could even miss out on compensation altogether. For these reasons, the best practice is to contact our office as soon as you are hurt. We are available 24/7 to take your call!
