Negligent Maintenance

Worcester Attorneys for Injuries Caused by Negligent Maintenance

Failure To Maintain Property

While there are many different causes for premises liability accidents, the vast majority of them come down to one single cause: negligent maintenance. Almost every accident that occurs as a result of danger on someone’s premises could have been avoided if the people in charge of the property would have maintained it properly. Cutting down dangerous tree limbs, putting gates around the swimming pool and shoveling the walkway: these are simple, common-sense maintenance methods that could prevent accidents from happening in the first place.

According to Massachusetts law, property owners and managers are responsible for the injuries caused by their negligent maintenance.
