Massachusetts Slip and Fall Lawyer Frequently Asked Questions


The Insurance Company is Calling Me. Should I Speak With Them?

Absolutely not. Nothing good can come from you speaking with an insurance adjuster before you have hired a lawyer to represent you.

What if I was Partly at Fault For My Slip and Fall Accident?

Even if you were partly to blame for the fall, you still may have a valid claim to pursue. This is called contributory negligence and is very common with these types of personal injury cases. You are not barred from bringing a claim in this situation.

Many – if not all – Massachusetts slip and fall claims have an element of contributory negligence.

How Much Do You Charge?

We only get paid if we obtain compensation for you for your injuries. That is called a contingency fee. If we don’t win, we don’t get paid anything, and that is a guarantee.

If we get your case settled, we charge the customary 1/3, or 33.3%, of the total settlement as our fee.

Will I Have to Go to Court?

Not likely. The great majority of slip and fall accident cases in Massachusetts settle without the need for a trial. The chances of your case going to trial are quite slim.

How Much is My Case Worth?

That depends on a number of factors. Is there negligence against the landlord, property owner, or whomever controls the property where you fell? Were you partly at fault for the slip and fall accident? What is the extent of your injuries? How much are your medical bills? Do you have permanent injuries?

If you slipped and fell and you were not injured, then you don’t need a lawyer. But, if you did sustain injuries, then you need a lawyer. These cases are too hard for people to handle on their own, without the assistance of an experienced attorney on your side. If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident, do not hesitate to call our office today for a free consultation; 617-444-7777.
