Trips, Slips and Falls
In Connecticut, a property owner has an obligation to keep the property reasonably safe and free of dangerous conditions, including holes, broken pavement, tripping hazards, slippery substances, ice and snow. Specifically, property owners must be aware of dangerous conditions that are not readily apparent from existing on their land or in their buildings. Fall down injuries can occur at various areas including: retail establishments, homes, common areas, sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, steps and stairs, roads and highways.
If you’ve been injured due to a dangerous condition on someone’s property, it is important to have photographs of the condition taken as soon as possible, particularly if the condition is ice or snow that was not carefully treated or removed. In fact, photographs can be the more important evidence in establishing the property owner’s fault for your injuries.
