Common Premises Liability Claims

Every property owner has a responsibility to ensure that a property is safe. This is true for both private and public properties. Unfortunately, as our legal team at Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, knows, unsafe properties are all too common in Massachusetts. Sadly, as a result of these many unsafe properties, numerous innocent people are injured or sustain serious illnesses. However, due to premises liability law, the victims of these dangerous properties can seek compensation and justice by filing a premises liability claim. While there are many different ways in which a property can be dangerous, there are certain dangers that tend to cause more people harm.

A property could be deemed unsafe for a number of reasons, like poor construction, the failure to maintain the property, or general negligence. In a lot of cases, premises liability claims involve:
