New Haven Slip & Fall Accidents

Owners of public and private property have a legal duty to keep their properties reasonably safe, so that visitors do not run an unreasonable risk of injury. This concept is known as premises liability, and slip and fall accidents are the most common form of premises liability lawsuit.

Slip and fall - or trip and fall - accidents have many causes:

  • Failure to shovel or salt snow and ice
  • Slippery substances on floors
  • Broken sidewalks or defects in pavement
  • Failure of elevators to level properly
  • Stairways that are not constructed or maintained according to standard building codes
  • Poor lighting in stairways or at exits

If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, it is important to seek independent legal advice as soon as possible. Lawsuits based on slip and fall accidents are known to be difficult to prove; the sooner your attorney can begin working on your case, the better your chance of success.
