Massachusetts Premises Liability Lawyer

At Sheff Law, we’ve been helping victims of premises liability accidents for six decades. Premises liability arises when property owners are liable for an accident that occurred on their property, whether it caused a victim to slip, trip, or fall, etc. Under Massachusetts state law, property owners are responsible when they fail to use reasonable care to prevent a personal injury a victim suffers while visiting another’s property. Premises liability accidents can occur on personal, public, private or commercial property.

We have encountered many different types of premises liability cases over the years. Some examples include:

  • Insufficient lighting
  • Faulty stairways, escalators, and elevators
  • Contact with lethal fumes or substances
  • Failure to renovate and sustain premises
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Balcony and deck defects
  • Hazards caused by cleaning agents, spilled food, or drinks
  • Collapse of a rooftop, floor, porch, or building
  • Dog bites or attacks
  • Building or housing code violation


At Sheff Law, we are passionate and dedicated to getting our clients the maximum amount possible for their premises liability injuries. We recognize that injured people are entitled to damages for their pain and suffering, lost wages, medical treatment expenses, and potentially loss of consortium. Our attorneys work to provide a comfortable atmosphere where the victim’s needs are met with tenacious advocacy.
