Slip and Fall Injury Cases in Connecticut

Slipping and falling are the most common reasons for personal injuries in Connecticut and most states. They can occur just about anywhere, from restaurants to shopping malls. If a business owner or property manager does not follow safety standards, a slip and fall accident could happen. All it takes is a small spill or a broken step to cause a catastrophic injury to a person.

The first thing to do in the case of an accident is to seek medical attention. It is crucial to prevent complications while documenting the injuries you sustained, if you can.

Process of Slip and Fall Case

The most common concern during this time is how to pay for the incurred medical expenses resulting from the injury. A personal injury claim is an option to cover the costs of your recovery.

The process starts with investigating what caused the accident. That means looking at available footage and talking to witnesses. The next step is to determine who was responsible for the incident. Once that is clear, it is time to hold the negligent party accountable.

The Doctor Lawyer Team is here to do these things for you while advising you on your legal recourse. Call us today to book a consultation.

Common Slip and Fall Injuries

While the injuries from some slip and fall accidents may be minor, these types of accidents can also be life-altering, causing significant bodily damage and pain.

Some examples of these major slip and fall injuries include:

  • Broken bones
  • Neck injuries, including to the tendons, muscles, and ligaments
  • Spinal column injuries, including pinched nerves, fractured vertebrae, and slipped discs
  • Concussions
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Knee and ankle injuries, including sprains, fractures, and ligament tears
  • Injuries to the jaw, face, and nose

Why Did You Slip and Fall?

It is the responsibility of business owners and property managers to create a safe environment for their customers. Failing to do so can make them liable for the injuries sustained by a person who is involved in an accident due to their negligence. Common causes of a slip and fall case include:

  1. An elevation change is left unmarked. The human eyes can play tricks with floors having a consistent design, even if there is a sudden step or elevation change. That can cause people to lose their balance and become injured.
  2. Small objects obstructing a walkway can cause people to trip and fall.
  3. Broken, crooked, and ill-designed steps can easily cause people to fall off and become injured.
  4. Vision is the primary sense used by people to determine the safety of their surroundings. Poor lighting can hinder that.
  5. Wet and slippery floors can cause people to slip and injure themselves, especially if the location is unmarked.

A crucial part of a slip and fall case is determining the cause. Next is finding out who was responsible and how they could have prevented the accident.

Determining Who Is Responsible for Your Slip and Fall

A personal injury caused by slip and fall can happen in private and public locations. The relationship is the first step to determining responsibility. Are you an invitee who entered to conduct business? Or are you a licensee who entered for non-commercial reasons?

Property owners are responsible for keeping their premises free from obstruction and hazards. If you become injured through no fault of your own, call The Doctor Lawyer Team to help establish your claim.
