In the course of your daily activities, you likely visit myriad Massachusetts businesses and private residences or government property — be it the local post office or town hall. During these visits, it is not inconceivable to be injured on someone else’s property. If you suffer such an injury due to possible negligence on the property owner’s part, you do not have to suffer alone.
It can happen without warning — you trip over a poorly maintained walkway, or you slip on a wet or slippery surface or a dog comes out of nowhere and attacks. No matter how it occurs, the end result is you are now dealing with a possibly severe injury and its attendant pain and suffering. On top of the physical injury, there could be substantial monetary losses as well. If you are unable to work because of the injury, then the financial damages can add to the stress you are already experiencing.
One serious concern on your mind may be who is going to pay for their medical care. Medical expenses tend to accumulate and can quickly get out of hand. However, there are premises liability laws here in Massachusetts that are meant to protect the victim who has suffered harm while on another’s property. This law stipulates that property owners are expected to maintain safe conditions as far as possible and to post signs warning about any potential hazards.
If you have been injured on someone else’s property — such as can happen in a slip and fall accident — then the possibility of suffering a serious head, neck or back injury can have a lasting impact on your future earning potential. Having the right resources at hand can mean the difference between future financial stability or suffering not just physically, but materially as well.
