Premises Liability Litigation: Pursuing Compensation After a Slip and Fall Accident
Slip and fall accidents are one of the most common types of premises liability claims. These accidents occur when an individual slips, trips, or falls due to a hazard on another person’s property. Property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe for visitors and guests, so if they fail to do so and someone gets injured, they may be liable for the victim's damages. It is critical to have experienced representation from a skilled Connecticut personal injury attorney in order to maximize your chances of receiving rightful compensation. By gathering evidence, filing documents, and utilizing both legal expertise & understanding of the law, qualified attorneys can work hard on building the strongest case possible for their clients.
Premises Liability Cases
In premises liability cases, the plaintiff (the person injured in the accident) must prove that the property owner or occupier was negligent in some way when it comes to keeping their premises safe and free of hazards that can lead to accidents. The property owner or occupier (also known as the defendant) may be considered liable if they knew or should have known about a dangerous condition and failed to take appropriate action to fix or warn of it. Additionally, there are certain conditions that might make a property owner strictly liable for an injury regardless of whether they could have reasonably prevented it from happening such as certain hazardous activities like construction or excavation work on their property.

What Causes Slip and Fall?
Slips and falls are common causes of injury, particularly in public spaces. These accidents can occur in virtually any location but some of the most common include parking lots, stairways, sidewalks, public transportation, construction sites, workplaces, and grocery stores. Many different factors can contribute to a slip or fall accident:
- Wet or slippery surfaces
- Poorly maintained walkways
- Loose floor mats, rugs, and carpets
- Uneven stairs and steps
- Obstructed views or clutter on the floor
- Poor lighting conditions
Slip and fall cases are generally divided into three categories: dangerous conditions, hazardous acts, and negligent maintenance.
Dangerous & Hazardous Conditions
Dangerous conditions refer to areas with obvious hazards such as wet floors or ice in walkways, while hazardous acts are those that are likely to cause someone to slip or trip.
Negligent maintenance is when property owners fail to properly maintain their property, resulting in unsafe conditions for visitors or residents.
