Condominium Accidents and Injuries

Condominium Accident Personal Injury AttorneysCondominium Accidents and Injuries – Who Can You Sue?

When accidents and injuries occur in a condominium it can be difficult finding out who is at fault for the accident and responsible for any damages. Cases involving accidents at condominiums (also referred to as ‘condos’) are unique because a condo can be owned by several different people or an association.  For this reason, where in the building or on the property the accident occurred makes a difference in who may be held responsible for any injuries or losses resulting from an accident.

Condominium associations owe tenants, renters, and visitors a duty to make sure the common areas and shared areas like the hallways, lobbies and parking lots are safe and free of all dangerous and hazardous conditions. They have a duty to take reasonable steps to adequately maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition.

How Our Lawyers Can Help

When we take a case our attorneys immediately leap into investigating the claim. The first thing we will do is send a notice to the condo owners to preserve any surveillance video that might show how the accident occurred or shed light on who is at fault. We will also request several pieces of information to make sure the condo association is operating in compliance with all Massachusetts laws.

Some of our other requests will include:

  • Building plans and permits for the entire condominium complex;
  • A copy of the declaration of condominium;
  • A copy of the condo association’s bylaws and any subsequent amendments;
  • The Condominium Association’s Articles of Incorporation that need to be filed with the Massachusetts Secretary of State;
  • Up-to-date condo rules;
  • Minutes for every meeting the board of directors held over last 5 years;
  • List of all condo unit owners and their contact information;
  • All Insurance policies;
  • Any agreements or contracts with property management companies;
  • All Maintenance and repair logs;
  • All Maintenance and repair policies and procedures;
  • All Rental records
