Students Injured on College Campuses

College Dorm

We hit the fall season again, which means it's time for pumpkin spice lattes, sweater weather, and of course the beginning of a new semester. With universities and colleges reopening, flocks of students are packing away their belongings and moving into their campus dormitories. It is bound to be a thrilling time for the students- especially after being stuck at home for quite a while due to the pandemic. After all, this has been one of their most awaited moments! To be able to live with their friends and finally get a taste of independence and self-responsibility, it seems as though all is well and nothing could go wrong. 

Unfortunately, this experience can expose them to a number of dangerous activities and situations that can cause them some type of injury or- in the most serious cases- death. At Hastings, Cohan & Walsh, LLP we fight for those college and university students who have been injured through the fault of another.

These colleges and universities where students suffer through the fault of another include:
  • Eastern Connecticut State University
  • Connecticut College
  • Central Connecticut State University
  • University of Connecticut
  • Southern Connecticut State University
  • Gateway Community College
  • Yale University
  • Charter Oak State College
  • Manchester Community College
  • Housatonic Community College
  • Naugatuck Valley Community College
  • Albertus Magnus College
  • Fairfield University
  • Wesley and University
  • Middlesex Community College
  • Western Connecticut State University
  • Trinity College
  • Goodwin University
  • Norwalk Community College
  • Quinnipiac University
  • University of Hartford
  • University of Bridgeport
  • University of New Haven
  • Sacred Heart University
  • Northwestern Connecticut community college
  • Tunxis Community College
  • University of St. Joseph
  • Post University
  • Mitchell College
College students are given multiple opportunities to engage in many of activities on and off-college campuses. Students may be injured in any one of the following ways:
  • Premises liability accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Burn injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Hazing
  • Sexual assault
Connecticut is home to some of the best colleges in the country, and with that being said, a stream of students is expected to fill university and college campuses all throughout the state. These academic institutions have an obligation to provide adequate security for students who attend, live at, or visit these campuses. If a college student is injured in any way while at college or at a university, there may be liability on the part of a third party which would entitle the student to obtain money damages. It is important that you get this valuable free information at the earliest possible convenience so that you do not prejudice your student's case or run the risk of having the case dismissed due to notice requirements which are sometimes very limited in time.

Please contact us at the earliest possible moment so we can investigate your students potential claim and properly advise you as to the liability of any third parties. Our Ridgefield injury law firm provides free case evaluations and advice. Please call 888-244-5480 or click here to contact us.
