Connecticut Slip and Fall Attorney

Slip and fall accidents can happen at any time and in any place. Though the very young and very old are most susceptible to these kinds of falls, no one is immune from injury after a trip, slip, or fall. While a simple fall may not seem serious, slip and fall accidents can lead to devastating injuries – no matter your age or health.

Though many people blame themselves for these kinds of injuries, property owners and businesses have a legal obligation to create a safe environment for those who visit or those the owner invites onto the property. Hazardous conditions that cause someone to get hurt may be grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. Contact our Connecticut slip and fall lawyers to discuss your case today.

How to Protect Yourself from Litigation

As a property owner or landlord, you may face a liability suit for a slip and fall injury if it happened because you failed to maintain safe conditions on your property. These cases can become very complex; consult a Stamford slip and fall lawyer from Goff Law Group, LLC today to ensure your property is safe and not vulnerable to a lawsuit. A few things to consider:

  • Are railings for stairs, and the stairs themselves, stable?
  • Are cracks in sidewalks or pavements a tripping hazard?
  • Is there adequate lighting for parking lots after dark?
  • Are there debits or holes in walking areas that could cause tripping?
  • Is the entrance free from ice during winter?

Of course, there are just a few things to consider. If you know children or the elderly frequent your property – for instance in churches or community centers – you should take extra precautions to ensure visitors don’t slip and fall.

When to Pursue a Slip and Fall Injury Claim in Stamford

Some people are hurt simply by walking onto another’s property and a property owner’s neglect shouldn’t cause you financial losses. However, not everyone who falls in a store, in a parking lot, on a sidewalk, or in a domicile has legal grounds to file suit, so discuss your case with one our attorneys. There are five offices across Connecticut where you can schedule a consultation, but we help slip and fall victims statewide.

Our Stamford slip and fall attorneys will help determine where the fault lies. Though many falls are from a walker’s carelessness, much more are from an owner’s negligence; wet spills in a store that aren’t dealt with in a timely fashion, or a business that fails to remove snow properly may be liable for your injuries.

When an accident happens, report the incident to management or the owner immediately, and seek medical care. Be sure to keep all medical records, and take pictures if you are able. If negligence played a part in your accident and a property owner could have foreseen such an eventuality,  then you likely have a claim. The Connecticut slip and fall attorneys at Goff Law Group, LLC are dedicated to helping slip and fall victims in Connecticut recover fair compensation for the injuries.

We will comprehensively review all pertinent data and bring in any professionals we believe can help you during your recovery and with your case.
