Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents in Boston, MA

Many property hazards can lead to a slip and fall accident, with the most common cause being unsafe floors, according to the National Floor Safety Institute.

Boston slip and fall accidents can be caused by:

  • Broken stairs or handrails
  • Construction sites
  • Cracked sidewalks or pavement
  • Icy or snowy walkways that have not been properly cleared
  • Narrow or steep stairways
  • Potholes
  • Torn carpeting
  • Uneven flooring
  • Wet or freshly mopped floors

Slip and fall accidents can occur in many places, including homes or apartments, businesses, construction sites, nursing homes, parking lots, and work sites.

Slips and falls are the leading cause of workers’ compensation claims, with 85% of claims stemming from employees slipping on wet floors.

Call (800) 995-1212 now if you were injured from a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property. We may be able to help you take legal action if the owner of the property is at fault.

Understanding Premises Liability

Slip and fall cases fall into the legal category of premises liability, which means that the owner or occupant of a property has the legal responsibility to ensure the safety of individuals who enter the property lawfully.

A successful premises liability case must show the property owner: 

  • Created a dangerous condition or knew of a hazard on their property
  • Had enough time to notice and address the danger on their property
  • Failed to fix or properly warn visitors about the hazard

In most states, premises liability only applies to individuals legally allowed on the property. Trespassers injured on someone else’s property may not be eligible to pursue compensation through a slip and fall lawsuit.

What should you do after a slip and fall accident in Boston?
