Slip and fall accidents occur all the time and often result in little more than a sore tailbone and bruised pride. However, some slip and fall accidents can result in serious personal injury such as damage to the brain or spinal cord, necessitating extensive medical intervention and potentially resulting in a permanent loss of function.
When a slip and fall results in serious injury, you need an attorney on your side to investigate the circumstances leading up to your accident. If your injury is the result of a poorly maintained property, you may be entitled to file a premises liability lawsuit and seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and personal pain and suffering.
To learn if you have cause to file a premises liability lawsuit, please call 203-878-1254 or contact Penner Law Firm today to schedule a free consultation with one of our Connecticut slip and fall lawyers.
Do You Have a Claim for Slip and Fall?
At Penner Law Firm, we are devoted to helping victims of serious personal injury recover damages through swift and effective legal action. It is important to remember that being involved in a slip and fall accident does not automatically entitle you to compensation.
To ensure the best outcome for our clients we must first establish that a serious injury has occurred and then investigate the accident to establish liability.
Because slip and fall cases are often frivolously filed, establishing liability is no easy task. For your case to have merit we must first prove one of the following three things:
- The dangerous conditions were caused by the property owner, manager, or an employee.
- The owner or employee knew about the dangerous conditions, but did nothing to correct them.
- The owner or an employee should have known about the conditions because a “reasonable person” would have known and taken action to correct them.
Clearly, in the third instance, defining “reasonable person” is far from cut and dried. This is where the investigation by your slip and fall lawyer becomes important. During your initial consultation at one of our Connecticut offices, we will assess your claim, discuss your options, and help you determine the most effective way to proceed.
