Establishing Fault For Premises Liability Accidents

Massachusetts landowners and occupiers of land must generally keep their property reasonably safe for visitors.  Failure to do so can result in legal liability.  However, just because an accident happened that caused injuries, does not mean the landowner is legally responsible.  The way to establish fault in these cases is to show that the landowner negligently maintained his premises which led to the injuries sustained.

Negligence can be shown if the injuries were caused by a dangerous condition on the property that the landowner created, knew about, or should have known about in the exercise of reasonable care and inspection.
