Stairway and Ramp Accidents
Property owners have to take reasonable steps to ensure that their premises are safe both inside and outside. Likewise, stairs, ramps and other things used to get in and out of property have to be kept free from unreasonable dangers. When an individual falls on a stairway or a ramp, the owner or manager of the premises could be held financially liable through a Massachusetts Premises Liability Lawsuit. Stairways are not safe when, for example, they are broken or excessively worn. An example of an unsafe ramp would be one that is not sloped at a proper angle.
What to Do if Injured on a Stairway or Ramp:
If you have suffered an injury because of a stairway or ramp accident, you should contact a MA premises liability lawyer as soon as you possibly can. You might be entitled to compensation, including costs of medical treatment, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. These types of cases usually require consultation with accident and premises liability experts. For example, many times investigations into stairway and ramp accidents require the help of engineers to find out whether the stairway or ramp complied with relevant building codes and regulations. A good lawyer will be able to work with these experts to pursue your claim. A lawyer will also look into every possible avenue of recovery and investigate the history of the property to see if there have been similar accidents in the past.
