Experienced Connecticut Slip-and-Fall Accident Lawyers

In order to bring a claim against a property owner for premises liability, the owner must have had notice and an opportunity to fix the defect before your accident. For example, if a grocery store owner was told by a customer of spilled milk before your accident, and the owner failed to clean it up, then you might have a claim.

At our firm, our attorneys have extensive experience handling all types of premises liability cases, including:

  • Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents — Icy sidewalks, broken stair cases and loose handrails are just a few of the defects that can cause serious slip-and-fall accident injuries.
  • Dog bites and animal attacks — In Connecticut, even if it is the first time a dog has become violent, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries.
  • Inadequate security — When a store or parking garage owner is aware of past robberies or assaults, they can be held liable for future attacks if they did not take steps to prevent the violence.
