Boston Personal Injury Attorney Neil Burns has spent a great deal of his career representing clients who have been injured in homes, apartments and in condominium accidents. When the injuries are as a result of the negligence of the property owner, an attorney can secure your rights and seek damages against the condominium owner, and even the condominium association.
It is the responsibility of property owners to make sure that any guests, customers, employees, maintenance workers, etc. will be safe from accidents caused by negligence while on their property. If a property owner fails to keep their property safe through routine inspections and maintenance, they can be held liable in court for pain and suffering, any time loss from work, medical bills, and other expenses caused by injuries sustained during a condominium accident. These accidents can be devastating to victims and their families, and a good premise liability lawyer or personal injury attorney can help to make sure that the victim is compensated for their suffering.
Our Premise Liability Expertise
Areas of Condominiums Accidents
Many injuries are caused inside the unit condominiums. On the other hand, many condominium accidents occur outside the unit, in the common areas. There are typically separate insurance policies that cover these losses.
Premise liability and personal injury lawyers often find themselves representing clients who were injured in condominium accidents which take place in the common areas of a condominium complex. Poor conditions can exist in the lobbies, hallways, stairways, balconies, and others areas of condominiums. Sometimes, slippery floors, dim or poor lighting, torn carpets, uneven tiles, and other floor hazards can cause slip and fall accidents, as can shaky handrails, and uneven stairs in a stairway. Code violations and other structural problems with a building can also be a contributor to condominium accidents. An expert witness may be necessary to determine the extent of the violations.
Injuries caused by intruders occur at condominiums. Unsafe conditions and inadequate security in the building and parking areas can also contribute to condominium accidents. Broken locks on doors and windows, and lack of video surveillance can also be a factor.
