Massachusetts Premises Liability Laws
The Massachusetts law of premises liability concerns the responsibility of a property owner to maintain reasonably safe conditions for guests, visitors, commercial patrons, and passersby. While a slip and fall on a wet supermarket floor represents the classic premises liability case, property owners can also incur liability for poor building maintenance, badly designed parking facilities, or even failing to provide reasonable protection from criminal attack.
Contact the Boston office of Steven J. Topazio, Attorney at Law, for dependable advice about your rights if you have been injured by someone else’s failure to maintain safe property conditions.

We represent clients with premises liability claims that arise from such circumstances as the following:

Many premises liability cases involve difficult issues of responsibility — who’s more at fault, the store manager who failed to mop up a spill, or the customer who didn’t watch his step? At our law firm, we give you honest and dependable advice about the merits of your claim based on the statements of witnesses, the physical evidence at the accident scene, the property owner’s previous safety record, and your own ability to watch out for your own safety under the circumstances. We can also advise you about the somewhat different considerations that apply to unsafe property cases involving children.
Our experience with the investigation and proof of disputed facts can give you a distinct advantage both in settlement negotiations and at trial. Our careful attention to the documentation of your damages claim in detail can also help you recover the compensation you’ll need if your injuries are permanent or disabling, as in the case of spinal cord damage or a traumatic brain injury.
