Premises liability and product liability

Injury by Negligence | Slip & Fall | Product Defects | Construction Defects

Premises liability and products liability in Massachusetts can be confusing. Unlike car accidents, police typically do not appear on the scene and there is rarely a defendant on hand to admit error and provide a phone number and insurance information at the time of injury.

We serve the Greater Boston Metrowest and South Coast MA communities in property liability and product liability cases. We are fully experienced in resolving personal injury disputes arising from defective products, including machine guarding cases, explosions from paint and other common household chemicals, gas explosions and leaks, appliances, power tools, lawn mowers and other items. We are also experienced in resolving personal injury claims involving premises liability and unsafe conditions, slip and fall or trip and fall accidents, defective surfaces, negligence, and construction defects.

In another case, we won a $150,000 award for a person who suffered facial scarring from a dog bite. In yet another case in Middlesex County, we achieved an $88,500 award for a client who was injured at a work site when a set of temporary stairs collapsed from under him.
