Premises Liability & Slip and Fall

Premises Liability & Slip and Fall

Businesses and private property owners have a duty to maintain, supervise and operate their property in a reasonable manner to protect the public from harm. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident or other accident resulting from a dangerous property condition, you may have a basis to receive compensation for your injuries.

The personal injury attorneys at Carmody represent clients throughout all Connecticut in all dangerous property (premises liability) claims, including:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Electrocution injuries
  • Burn injuries
  • Dangerous objects and property conditions

Frequently, slip and fall accidents occur as a result of an unreasonable build-up of snow, ice or other conditions that may cause a slippery walkway. Another common cause of a slip and fall accident is uneven surfaces caused by concrete cracks or potholes. Slip and fall lawsuits frequently derive from accidents that occur at retail stores, grocery stores, parking lots, parking ramps, apartments, hotels and restaurants. Others occur at private residences.

Injuries from slip, trip and fall accidents vary but often include a fractured or broken bone. In more serious cases, a brain injury, back injury, spine injury or fatal injury may occur.
