Have You Been Injured in a Slip & Fall Accident?
Slip-and-fall accidents related to snow and ice can be difficult to recover damages for in the state of Massachusetts. Thankfully, it has gotten much better over time.
Previously in the state of Massachusetts if you were injured in a slip and fall accident due to snow or ice before seeking damage you had to make the distinction between “natural” and “unnatural” accumulations of snow/ice. This was complicated and made it difficult for the courts to determine the cause.
The “natural” accumulation was defined as “untouched” snow and ice. The “unnatural” accumulation of snow & ice was defined as excessive amounts on the property due to the owner neglecting to shovel causing the ground to become hazardous.
In July of 2010 this rule was abolished making the standard for snow and ice cases the same as any other personal injury claim. The property owner is still responsible for maintaining the property in order to prevent a slip & fall accident from occurring.
As snow and ice laws continue to change over time it is important to know and understand your options upfront. Contact the Attorney Injury Group Today at 617-934-7000.
