Slip & Fall

Caring Injury Attorneys in Massachusetts

Some people believe that slip and fall lawsuits are a nuisance – an opportunity to take advantage of the legal system. You may have thought so too, until you were involved in a slip and fall accident yourself and realized the amount of damage which can be caused by this type of injury. At the Law Offices of Moir & Ross, we recognize that slip and fall accidents and trip and fall accidents can cause serious injury. If you were hurt because you slipped and fell, you have probably incurred significant medical expenses, time away from work to recover and other financial challenges.

Our attorneys are here to examine the facts of your case and the applicable premises liability laws to determine how to help you effectively obtain the compensation you deserve. To learn more about premises liability or to discuss the specifics of your case, please consult the experienced personal injury lawyers at our Westfield law firm. Call 413-568-1957.

Who is Liable for Your Slip and Fall Injury?

Commercial and residential property owners have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for visitors who are entitled to be on the property. Therefore, walkways should be free from debris, floors should be clean and dry (or visibly marked as being a wet floor), stairs should be free from defects and other obstacles should be reasonably moved or noted.

Failure to follow such expectations can cause visitors to trip or slip and fall and suffer serious injuries, such as broken wrists, fractured ankles, broken bones, back injuries, neck injuries or other serious injuries. Moir & Ross advocates for clients injured in various types of slip and fall accidents:

  • Falls in stairways
  • Trips and falls in community areas of an apartment building
  • Slips and falls on icy pavement or in an un-shoveled snowy parking lot
  • Trips and falls on uneven sidewalks
  • Trips and falls on torn carpet
  • Other slip or trip and falls
