Schwartz’ associates will travel to you to help settle your valid case to ensure that you heal properly without added distress.
Who’s at fault?
Slip and fall snow cases are often determined, first, by who’s at fault. If you feel you’ve experienced an injury on property where it’s someone else’s responsibility to care for and ensure the safety of the environment, you may be entitled to legal compensation. Snow and ice cases in Massachusetts can be determined by whether or not the property owner has liability to the premises and whether or not the property has been adequately maintained. Other factors may also play into determining who’s at fault for a slip and fall claim.
Other slip and fall liability factors may include:
- Dim or poor lighting
- Poorly placed or unclear signage
- Unsalted pathways
- Safety code violations
What are you entitled to?
Snow, ice and sidewalk slip and fall cases may authorize you to damages including the covering of medical bills, lost wages, loss of potential earnings and even mental and emotional reparations. Other expenses, including gas paid for doctor’s visits and other such costs, may also be covered by your suit.
