Individuals can suffer injuries from a slip or a fall just about anywhere: at work, in a stairwell, sidewalks, grocery stores, malls, parking lots, hotels and more. In the event you or a loved one was harmed due to a slip or fall, the most important thing to do is to capture pictures of the area where the accident occurred. Photographic evidence will be crucial in determining if in fact there was a defect on the ground that led to the slip or fall. More importantly, under Massachusetts law, pictures will help determine if the property owner knew or should have known about the defective area.


If snow or ice was the cause of the accident, the property owner can be at fault it was an unnatural condition. For example, ice may have formed from a leak out of a faulty pipe or roof. Regardless of the type of slip or fall, you or your family member should take as many as photos as possible if you think a defective ground was the reason for the accident and injury.


Sports Accidents

Accidents are a part of any sport; however, some sports-related injuries are preventable. If you or a loved one experienced a sports injury, you may be able to file a claim if you can prove another party acted negligently. In the state of Massachusetts, parties can be held reliable under the below conditions:

  • Abusive or poorly trained coaches
  • Inadequate protective gear is determined to be inadequate
  • Inappropriate workouts or training methods for a certain level of ability or age
  • Matching of players is unfair based on size and ability
  • Unsafe playing fields or athletic surfaces


If your family has been affected by what you believe to be a preventable sports injury, don’t wait to contact the Law Office of Frank Fernandez.


Dog Bite

Dogs provide much comfort and love to families throughout the United States. Unfortunately, dogs can also cause harm to both kids and adults. Dog bites are a common occurrence, including in the state of Massachusetts. Strict policies exist for dog owners and they can be held reliable if you or a loved one was bitten by a dog. Dog bites can lead to scarring, bleeding, infection and other physical and mental complications.


Because dog bite victims are often harmed by a family member’s or friend’s dog, it’s important to the victim to find an amicable way to resolve the matter. The Law of Office of Frank Fernandez can help. Call 617-393-0250 today or contact us using our online form.


Toxic Tort

Do you think you or a loved one has been harmed by a dangerous chemical? If so, you may be able to file a toxic tort claim.


One of the most common toxic tort cases involves food poisoning: this occurs when the food was infected by bacteria or viruses, for example. If it is determined a business or manufacturer operated under unsafe, unhealthy or unsanitary food-handling conditions, they can be held reliable for your food poisoning.


Asbestos exposure is another common toxic tort case. Asbestos is a material used in the construction of buildings decades ago. It can be found in workplaces such as industrial parks, outdated public buildings and homes, auto shops, shipyards and more. Construction companies, property owners or manufacturers are some of the potential responsible parties for not maintaining a site free of asbestos exposure.


Property owners must also be conscious of mold or lead paint on their properties. Mold contamination can cause short- and long-term respiratory effects and lead to significant medical expenses and damages. Lead exposure often comes from deteriorating lead-based paint or lead dust. Inadequate or rusty plumbing can also result in lead entering the water stream. Drinking the water can lead to numerous health conditions, both mental and physical.


If you or a family member has been affected by asbestos, mold or lead paint, contact us immediately to understand your rights. You may be eligible for compensation.


Daycare Injuries

Daycare is a great convenience for many parents throughout the country, including in Massachusetts. However, leaving your child in another person’s or company’s care can be stressful. Claims have been filed for negligent care of children at daycare facilities. Claims include assault, poisoning, drowning, brain injury, bruising and more. If your child was injured, immediately speak with the staff and ask if the incident was documented. If not, that’s an immediate red flag. We’ve helped many families affected by daycare injuries—don’t wait to contact us so we can help you build a case and file a claim.


Inadequate Maintenance

Unfortunately, companies sometimes will cut corners on maintenance of property in order to save money. It could be company vehicles such as trucks or vans, taxi cabs, equipment and machinery or maintenance of the grounds. Poorly maintained property, vehicles and equipment are dangerous to the workers and can cause serious injury or even death. If you or a loved one has been affected by inadequate maintenance, contact the Law Office of Frank Fernandez here or call 617-393-0250 immediately.

I am happy that I chose Frank to be my lawyer, and I will choose him again in the future. Although we agreed that I will pay him more money if my case went to trial, but he did his best to get my case dropped, and in fact the case was dismissed, and I didnt have to go through a trial or pay him extra money. He did all the work and all i had to do was showing up in court, I didnt need to speak a word. Very impressing, Frank is someone you can trust, and I respect him and his work

Very honest. Accepted my case while I was in NYC. Explained to me exactly what will happen at minimum cost. First time I can say I met an honest attorney. As a business and real estate in NYC, I retained many attorneys whose goal was to maximize their fees. Mr Fernandez was very reasonable and upfront honest with his fee. Very highly reccomend.

Frank Fernandez should be the first call anyone makes within the Boston area for legal representation. As a working professional, I made a horrible mistake and I was arrested with the potential of spending a lot of time in jail with the potential to have charges escalated. His efforts saved me a lot of potential pain and grief. He came to my rescue when I had no family locally to help me out of the situation my actions caused.I was fortunate that I found him out of the chaotic choices that are out there. Frank is professional and cares about all of the elements which affected the outcome of my case. My life and my career are back on track and I could not have done this without Frank's ability to react and change the course of difficult decisions. Trust, integrity, honesty, alongside the ability to dig deep, are just some of the characteristics of the person who accepted my case in the middle of the night.If you need a sanctuary when you can only see your life taking a change for the worse, call Frank and explain the elements of your case. I've got his card in my car, my wallet, my desk when I've got the potential for any type of legal action. I know he's someone that I can depend upon.I'm not posting for sake of Frank's business, I'm posting to convey my thanks for a difficult set of circumstances that I'll not face due to his ability to think quickly and make reliable decisions in spite of the issues that resulted from my actions.
