Massachusetts Snow & Ice Accident Attorney

How to Choose a Massachusetts Lawyer Who Knows Snow and Ice Accident Cases

For people who have slipped and fallen on ice or snow, and suffered a personal injury, the in-depth experience and expert services of Mass Injury Firm is the first place to turn.

Who Is Liable
Dramatic changes to the law that governs preventative procedures involving ice and snow removal has increased the burden of responsibility on property owners who are now required to keep their properties and common areas safe from natural and unnatural accumulations of snow and ice.

Whether the property owner is the city or a private citizen, they must exercise reasonable care and not endanger the public with their snow and ice removal procedures. Owners may also bear responsibility for a third party snow and ice removal contractor, so they need to ensure the work is done safely.

In July of 2010, the law extended the responsibility of the property owner beyond the previous liability of unnatural accumulation of snow and ice, to include the negligence in the reasonable maintenance of a property.

In regular terms, this means a property owner needs to keep their property clear of snow and ice build-up, and must keep the premises reasonably safe. In the case of litigation, the definition of reasonably safe usually ends up in the domain of a jury, however a general guideline is to clean after each snowstorm, and keep sidewalks clear of ice, watching for thaws and clearing gutters and overhangs of icicles.

If you've been injured or or by snow or ice, do what you can to safely document the scene after getting medical attention. While there is a burden on the property owner to keep the premises clear and save, snow and ice evidence does something most other evidence does not do - it melts. Photograph the scene and contact Mass Injury Firm at (866) 995-6663 to speak with a Massachusetts injury attorney in our office today.
