Knowledgeable personal injury representation

Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents occur as a result of negligent maintenance of property, such as:

  • Slippery floors or wet floors in stores, malls or other public areas
  • Icy and snowy sidewalks or parking lots
  • Broken or faulty staircases
  • Uneven pavement, floors or sidewalks

In most premises liability cases, we must show that the property owner knew of the condition and had a reasonable amount of time to fix the problem. However, in Connecticut, where an owner has an expectation that spills will occur, such as at a salad bar, we may be able to overcome this notice requirement.

Also, if a property owner's actions make the condition worse, you may have a claim. For example, if a property owner plows snow over the sidewalk and you suffer a broken ankle or sprained ankle, you may have a premises liability case.
