Dangerous Conditions Can Cause a Slip and Fall Accident
Some people blame themselves when they have a slip and fall injury. But falldown accidents are often caused by a dangerous condition on a business or private property. Property owners have a duty under Connecticut law to make their premises safe for normal and expected use.
The premises liability attorneys at Jacobs & Dow in New Haven, Connecticut, investigate slip and fall accidents to determine if the owners are liable for our clients' injuries. Since 1947, we have helped people in Connecticut injured on dangerous premises to prove liability and secure fair and just compensation for their injuries.
The Lawyers of Jacobs & Dow Investigate and Litigate Slip and Fall Accidents
The premises liability attorneys at our firm take slip and fall accident injuries seriously. We collect and preserve evidence, talk to witnesses, review medical records and investigate the cause of slip and fall and trip and fall accidents.
Poorly lit stairwells in an apartment or office building can cause dangerous falls. If a store has failed to clean slippery floors in a timely manner, this negligence can cause patrons to a slip and fall and suffer serious injuries. A failure to clean a construction site can result in falling debris hazardous to passersby.
When a property owner knows (or should know) about a dangerous hazard and does nothing to protect people who come onto the property, the owner may be held liable for damages. Fall down hazards include exposed electrical wires, icy sidewalks, defective elevators, malfunctioning escalators, damaged pavement and potholes, worn stairs and missing handrails.
