An accident or injury case in Connecticut involving snow and ice, a slip and fall or cause resulting in a traumatic brain injury of an individual can be devastating to the family of the innocent victim. Any traumatic brain injury claim must be investigated immediately so the rights of the survivor are protected. You need an experienced traumatic brain injury lawyer to help you through this most difficult time.
CT snow and ice cases can result in a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, if the slip and fall causes the injured person's head to come into contact, with great force, a hard object such as a sidewalk, driveway, parking lot, step, curb, pavement or other blunt or hard object that causes the brain to smash against the interior surface of the person's skull. A traumatic brain injury resulting from a snow and ice case presents a number of very complicated issues that must be addressed which requires the involvement of an experienced personal injury lawyer familiar with the investigation, development and prosecution of a TBI case. Our office has decades of experience in dealing with all types of accident and injury cases, snow and ice cases and traumatic brain injury cases involving car accidents, slip and falls, sports injuries, premises liability and other types of negligence.
Clients are often curious about how we go about proving fault or liability on the part of the person that caused their accident. The Connecticut General Statutes set forth how individuals are to behave, what is required of them, including how they operate their vehicles. If a person is found to have violated one of these sections, then fault can be established. One such section that might apply in a snow and ice accident case involving a brain injury is Connecticut General Statute Section 14-240 which states:
Vehicles to be driven reasonable distance apart. (a) No driver of a motor vehicle shall follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent, having regard for the speed of such vehicles, the traffic upon and the condition of the highway and weather conditions.
