Connecticut Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers
Serving Personal Injury and Accident Victims in East Hartford
In some cases, slip and fall accidents are minor and caused by one’s carelessness or inattention. In most cases however, slip and fall accidents occur as a result of certain hazards that exist within a public or private property. Such accidents may appear minor at first but often result in lifelong injuries.
Some of the major causes of slip and fall accidents include:
Poor maintenance of buildings
Poor maintenance of stairways and pathways
Wet and slippery floors
Untreated ice and snow
Slip and fall accidents often result in orthopedic injuries including fractured wrists, hands, ankles, elbows, hips, legs and feet. You may also suffer neck injuries, back and spine injuries or brain injuries. Such devastating injuries can be life-altering and financially challenging.
It is common for slip and fall victims to feel responsible for their fall even when it was no fault of theirs. It is however, important to note that property owners have a duty to keep their property free from hazards and when they fail to do so, may be held responsible in a premises liability action.
Proving the negligence of the property owner can be difficult and requires the help of an experienced Connecticut slip and fall injury lawyer. In order to succeed in a slip and fall action, you will be required to prove that a defective condition existed and that the property owner had notice of the defect.
By hiring Cava Law Firm, East Hartford residents have better chances at obtaining compensations for medical bills, loss of present and future income, pain and suffering, emotional distress and mental anguish.
