Legal Questions & Answers


A:
When choosing a personal injury attorney to hire for this auto accident you should ensure that your attorney has the experience to get you the compensation you deserve for your troubles. In addition to securing funds to pay for your medical bills, your attorney should have the experience necessary to argue successfully for your right to just compensation for both your physical, emotional and financial burdens sustained in this accident. In a case as complex as this there really is no substitute for an experienced lawyer.




A:
The landlord seems to be stating that you are at least partly at fault for causing your fall and injury. In Massachusetts, this is legally known as comparative negligence. Comparative negligence (aka Contributory negligence) however, does not bar one from recovering in an action for negligence which results in injury, so long as the comparitive negligence was not greater than the total amount of negligence attributed to the person against whom recovery is sought. Therefore, as long as your landlord was found to be 50% or more at fault for your accident, then you would still be able to recover against him for your injury. If it were determined that you were partly at fault, then any recovery would be diminished by your percentage of the fault. In your case, it is likely that you would recover in a claim against your landlord since landlords are liable for defects for which he or she has notice and fails to repair in a reasonable time.




A:
Assuming the parking lot is private property, you have three years to bring a claim. It is good practice however, to report the slip and fall as soon as possible so that the property owner is put on notice of the defect and so that their insurer can do an investigation before the defect has been altered or repaired.
