Call A Connecticut Slip, Trip, And Fall Accident Lawyer To Help You Obtain Compensation For Your Damages, Including Medical Bills, Lost Wages, Pain And Suffering, And Other Issues You May Face Because Of Your Injury

When you are unaware of potential hazards due to inadequate signage, that would be considered a case for a slip, trip, and fall claim. This includes if the property owner was aware of unsafe conditions and made no effort to warn others of the hazards, make reasonable repairs, or take appropriate action.

Statute Of Limitations For Slip, Trip, And Fall Accident Injury In Connecticut

Connecticut law allows only Two Years to file a personal injury claim. This deadline is critical to your rights because if you don't get your lawsuit started in court before Connecticut's two-year filing window closes, you'll lose your right to have your case heard. Call our offices today to avoid missing your window of opportunity.

Time Limit For Claims Against A Government Entity

A city or county must be notified of your intent to sue within six months. The State Claims Commissioner must be notified of a claim against the state within one year.

Types & Causes Of Slip, Trip, And Fall Injuries And Accidents

Many different factors can cause a public facility to be dangerous for its visitors, ultimately causing a Slip, Trip, and Fall injury. The factors include:

  • Too much wax or polish
  • Poor lighting
  • Torn, worn, or broken, bulging areas of carpet
  • Unstable stacks of merchandise
  • Unrepaired damaged flooring or uneven floor
  • Substances on the floor, such as spills from containers
  • Lack of warning signs in the appropriate places throughout the store

Compensation For Your Slip, Trip, And Fall Injuries Can Cover:

  • Emergency Medical Expenses
  • Continuous Medical Care
  • Prescription Medication
  • In-Home Nursing Care
  • Physical Therapy
  • Counseling
  • Assistive Medical Equipment
  • Missed Wages and Lost Earning Capacity
  • Emotional Distress

A possessor of land owes each person who steps on their property a certain duty of care, depending on the visitor's status. The legal significance is that a possessor of land has the duty to an invitee to inspect the premises for hidden defects and to repair or erect safeguards, if necessary, to make the premises reasonably safe.

Duty Of Care Owed To Trespassers

Generally, an owner owes trespassers no duty of care because he has no reason to expect them to be on his property. Therefore, he does not have to warn or protect them from potentially harmful conditions on the property. However, in Connecticut, the following rules apply to a possessor of land concerning a trespasser.

  1. He may not intentionally harm the trespasser or lay a trap for them
  2. The trespasser is entitled to due care after his presence is known
  3. There is no duty owed regarding the condition of the premises
  4. The possessor of land has no duty to trespassers if he is engaged in a dangerous activity until the person's presence is known
  5. The possessor of land has no duty to warn trespassers of dangerous hidden condition

Should I Get A Slip, Trip, And Fall Lawyer?

Maybe you are the type of person who is hesitant to sue anyone. Still, you could be experiencing pain, suffering, discomfort, dealing with piles of unexpected medical bills, time off work, and being confused about how to move forward.

Shouldn’t someone pay for what happened? If so, hiring a Slip, Trip, and Fall attorney is, unfortunately, a reality for ensuring you get what you deserve and what is right.

What To Do If You’ve Been Injured In An Accident:

  1. Report your accident to the appropriate authorities ASAP. Whether this is the police, an employer, a store employee, or a supervisor. Get medical treatment for any injuries you have sustained, don’t “shake it off.” Some injuries, like traumatic brain injuries or internal injuries, can have delayed symptoms. The sooner you receive medical attention, the better for your health and your case.
  2. Collect as much information as possible. You or someone you trust should attempt to get information from any involved parties. Important information can be the names of all parties involved and any eyewitnesses. If you were in a car crash, get the other driver’s insurance information.
  3. Take photographs. Photograph the scene, your injuries, the causing factors of the accident, and anything you think may be relevant. If you were injured on someone’s property due to a dangerous condition, take photos of the hazardous condition.
  4. Get copies of all relevant documents. This can include police reports, incident reports, medical records, and communications with insurance companies.

The more information about your case, the stronger your claim will be. If you were injured due to another’s carelessness, contact one of our experienced Connecticut Slip, Trip, and Fall Injury lawyers to learn more about filing a claim.
