Slip and Fall Lawyer in Stamford
Connecticut law holds property owners or others responsible for the maintenance of safe premises. Yet in 2001, about 11 percent of civil jury trials pertained to premises liability. Common types of accidents within this category of the law include the following:
- Slipping on icy walkways and sidewalks
- Injuries on city sidewalks and roadways
- Tripping in parking lot potholes and defects
- Falling after slipping on an unmarked wet floor
- Slipping on loose rugs or tripping on improperly fastened carpeting
- Falling down steps in dark areas
Although the law pertains to virtually any situation involving the safety of visitors to premises, individuals often refer to these accidents as slip and fall because the majority of claims involve such incidents.
