Massachusetts Slips and Falls and Intoxication

Oftentimes slip and falls are caused by inebriation. Does that mean the injury victim does not have a case? No.
Generally, if the injury victim is deemed less negligent than the company or person responsible for the accident, then she or she can pursue a claim. So who determines who is at fault, and whether the injury victim or property owner is more to blame for the accident? A jury does.
Intoxication therefore is not a bar to recovery. But, intoxication will bar any recovery when the injury victim is greater than 50% responsible for the accident.
