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

Negligent maintenance is when property owners fail to properly maintain their property, resulting in unsafe conditions for visitors or residents.

Common Slip and Fall Injuries

Slip and fall accidents can result in victims experiencing a variety of serious injuries, many of which are life-altering. These come with significant physical pain as well as the potential for long-term or permanent impairment. In addition to the physical impact of slips and falls, psychological harm can persist as an aftermath of this sort of accident.

Some of the common injuries include:
  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Lacerations
  • Sprains
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Back and neck injuries

Collect As Much Evidence As Possible

In order to build a strong case for a slip and fall claim in Connecticut, it is important to collect as much evidence as possible. This can include:

  • Medical records related to injury, including X-rays, MRIs, doctor's notes, hospital discharge papers, prescriptions, diagnoses, and treatments
  • Witness reports of the incident
  • Photographs of the scene and injury
  • An official incident report from the property owner

Gathering this evidence promptly is crucial in order to meet the two-year statute of limitations.

What is the Statute of Limitations To File A Slip and Fall in Connecticut?

In Connecticut, individuals who have suffered an injury due to slipping or falling on someone else’s property must take action within two years of the incident in order to pursue a claim for damages. Failing to do so will render them ineligible for receiving any compensation for their injuries. This two-year period is known as the statute of limitations and it is important to act quickly in order to build a strong case

Attorney Ganim, Jr. represented me from 2017-2019 after a car ran a stop sign and hit mine. He and his office staff were incredible. He was able to fight to get me a great settlement and was so professional, caring, and helpful during the entire process including my deposition. His staff at the office was incredibly helpful and kind, too. There is a lot of paperwork and record keeping involved when gathering for your case; his team made it really simple, were very responsive (no chasing anyone down for a call or email back). Most of the time, I would actually get a call back to an e-mail to make sure communication was clear. And they were so patient when I had the same question sometimes because I would get myself confused with a process! Being in a car accident is awful, but they made the legal part really easy and brought me a ton of peace of mind. While I hope I never need to use their services again for a car accident, I would 1000% use them again if I needed to. I highly recommend Attorney Ganim, Jr.

Kevin Charles
A few years ago while driving in Milford Ct, I was rear ended and suffered injuries to my neck and back. I did some research and selected Ganim injury Lawyers to represent me in a lawsuit. I was anxious and had no clue what to expect when Atty. George Ganim met with me. In the very first meeting, George took the time to be friendly as he asked me what happened putting me at ease right away. Looking back on our first meeting, I want to thank George for being so patient answering my many questions in a way that I could understand. This same patient friendly informative approach to me continued for me from not only George but with his staff all the way through, what was for me, a complicated process. Every time I would call his office with questions I was patiently and professionally answered right away by either George or a staff member. Not once was I made to feel unwelcome with all my concerns and questions. I was very satisfied with the end result and I want to thank George and his staff for making the whole process easy for me. I highly recommend choosing Ganim Injury Lawyers.
