When are other parties liable for injuries suffered in falls?

When you are in public and suffer from a slip-and-fall accident or other type of fall, you may assume the accident was your fault. Often, these types of accidents are the result of dangerous property conditions and factors beyond your control, and you may not be to blame.

If you are suffering from injuries related to a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident in Connecticut, you may find it beneficial to seek guidance regarding your potential legal options. It is possible you have grounds to seek compensation from liable parties, but it is important to take quick action. Premises liability claims can be complex, but you do not have to walk through this process by yourself.

Common questions about premises liability

You should not have to suffer because another party failed to ensure the safety of visitors or allow for the presence of dangerous conditions. However, it can be difficult to know if you have a case or even understand all of the factors that may have a played a role in what happened to you. It could be helpful for you to have answers to the following questions:

  • What happens if I was hurt in a hotel? If dangerous conditions in the hotel led to your injury, you may have a valid claim. However, the hotel is likely not liable for injuries related to criminal activity on or near the premises.
  • What if I suffered an injury on public property? There may be situations in which the local government or municipalities are liable for broken sidewalks, icy paths or other dangerous conditions that cause harm.
  • What are my options if I suffered injuries while visiting a friend? Depending on how your injuries happened, your neighbor may be liable for hazards he or she did not correct or warn you about.

You will find it beneficial not to make assumptions about your case. Instead, it could be helpful to seek an evaluation of your case to better understand your options. 

Getting better after an accident 

If you were hurt in an accident on public or private property, you would have a right to seek compensation through a premises liability claim. This step could allow you to seek recovery of your financial losses.

An unexpected trip-and-fall or slip-and-fall accident could leave you with injuries and expenses you cannot manage on your own. Fortunately, there could be options for recourse available to you, including the possibility of filing a civil claim.
