How Do These Accidents Happen?

A slip and fall accident can result in damages to an injured party as a result of the negligence or fault of another party. Slip and fall cases can be caused by temporary or permanent conditions either outside of a building, inside of a building, or on land. The cause of a slip and fall accident can range from spilled liquid to a broken piece of slab on a side walk to a damaged stairwell railing.

The five major reasons for slip and fall accidents are:

  • Lack of slip-resistant floors – Property owners have a legal responsibility to ensure that the walking surfaces on their premise are safe for pedestrians under conditions reasonably expected
  • Poor walking surfaces – If a walking surface is poorly maintained, there may be loose threads, curling corners, mats that are too think, and other surfaces that can cause a fall
  • Poor visibility – It is required to have good lighting on a walking surface and to have visible signage if there is a dangerous surface
  • Stairs – Must be built to code and properly maintained; also must be well-lit
  • Handrails – Must be built to code, easy to grip, and maintained properly

Weather-Related Accidents

In the harsh elements of Connecticut, it is very possible to suffer a slip and fall accident because of snow or ice on a walkway. If this happens because a person hasn’t properly maintained their property, you may still be entitled to file a lawsuit. If you have been involved in an accident involving black ice or snow and ice, you need to take pictures right away, if possible. You should capture the place of the accident and any details that may help demonstrate the cause of your injuries.

Hear From Our Past Clients

5 / 5 stars
After my wife was involved in a fall down accident I got a letter from the insurance carrier saying there was no liability on the part of their insured. I contacted Attorney Richard Hastings and he told me that the insurance company completely misrepresented the law to me in the letter. He told me I could handle this case without retaining him and told me exactly what to do. He spoke to me on several occasions and was always available to answer my questions. He even told me what to tell the insurance company. As a result of his tremendous counsel, I was able to get the insurance company to pay me $20,000. I would highly recommend Attorney Hastings because he is not only an excellent lawyer but is also someone who looks out for others and genuinely cares. You can be sure that if I ever hear of anyone getting injured I will insist that they call Richard Hastings.
