Premises Liability

Commercial and public facilities have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for the people who use them. Every year, thousands of people suffer injuries caused by falls on, or entrapment in elevators and escalators. The Massachusetts Law Firm of Connell and Foresta is dedicated to helping clients recover compensation for elevator/escalator injury cases and other premises liability matters.

When you have suffered elevator/escalator injuries, or other premises accident injury, contact a Connell and Foresta personal injury attorney for a free consultation.

Specializing in Elevator and Escalator Injuries

Elevator/escalator injuries result from a fall or entrapment between the moving parts. While falls are more common, "caught-in" accidents usually cause more serious injury. Inadequate warnings, defective designs, and improper maintenance often result in bruises, abrasions and sometimes amputation. Children are especially vulnerable.

We specialize in elevator/escalator injury cases. Our elevator and escalators lawyers thoroughly investigate the relevant issues necessary to build a formidable case against the negligent property owner or manager. Whether or not your case goes to trial, we are committed to helping you recover the fair compensation you need, and deserve.

Skilled in Many Premises Liability Areas

We are an exclusive personal injury legal practice. Our lawyers understand the fine distinctions involved in different types of premises liability cases, including:

  • slip and fall accidents
  • dog bites
  • stairway and walkway mishaps
  • bad lighting and dangerous conditions
  • inadequate or lax security
  • parking ramp or parking lot accidents

As a law firm focused on personal injury, we believe that many premises accidents can be avoided if negligent property owners simply made safety a bigger priority. Sadly, many don't. We are working hard to help victims of negligence hold property owners accountable, and recover fair compensation for their pain and suffering.
