Connecticut Slip and Fall Lawyers
Slip and fall accidents are the most frequent types of premises liability cases and can result in serious injury or death. Premises liability laws hold property owners accountable for any injury that a person may receive while on their property due to dangerous conditions. In fact, slip and fall accidents are one of the most common types of premises liability claims.
Like other premises liability cases, slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere, anytime. Depending on the severity of your fall, you could end up with just a few cuts and bruises or a serious personal injury which may include broken bones and deep lacerations. In some instances, injuries sustained from slipping, tripping, or falling can have a permanent, negative impact on the rest of your life. If you or someone you love has been hurt from one of these accidents, your family could be eligible for compensation. Our Connecticut slip and fall lawyers have the experience, passion and knowledge to successfully pursue justice for you.
Common Factors Involved In Fall Injuries
While there can be a multitude of situations where a person can be injured by falling, some common factors that lead to slip and fall accidents include:
- Broken steps
- Torn or loose carpeting
- Cracked sidewalks
- Steps without warning
- Ice or snow
- Overgrown moss or grass
- Uneven ground
- Wet or slick floors
- Poor lighting
- Parking lot potholes
- Lack of handrails or grab bars
- Small, scattered objects
As always, it is generally a good idea to try and be aware of your surroundings and to pay attention while you are walking – especially if you find yourself in any of the areas listed above. However, if you do happen to fall as a result of a dangerous area not being marked accordingly – or perhaps due to a slippery surface that could have been made less-slippery – we can help.
