In Connecticut, property owners and managers have a legal responsibility to maintain their premises, making sure they are safe and free of hazards that could hurt individuals living or visiting the property. Even the smallest trip-up can result in a great deal of damage to ankles, legs, arms, hands, back or head.
Whether you or your family member was hurt at a restaurant, store, college campus or an apartment building, the Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke will adamantly protect your rights and help you maximize your financial recovery.
Maximizing Your Recovery When You Have Been Hurt On Unsafe Property
A Connecticut property owner can be held liable for dangerous conditions on his or her premises that led to your injuries, depending on whether or not the owner knew of the unsafe conditions, how long the conditions were present, and whether or not the owner ignored requests to attend to the hazard.
Over the years, our Bridgeport slip-and-fall accidents attorneys have helped our clients successfully pursue premises liability claims in order to receive compensation that helped them heal from their serious and sometimes catastrophic injuries resulting from:
- Snow, rain, ice and other slippery surfaces
- Poor lighting
- Low-hanging merchandise
- Defective handrails
- Broken stairs
- Uneven concrete or sidewalks
- Uneven carpet or mats.
Anyone who has a slip-and-fall accident and experiences injury should try to do several things. First, get immediate medical assistance. Second, ask for the names, addresses and phone numbers of witnesses who saw the fall. Third, try to save any evidence related to the fall, such as a squashed piece of fruit and the shoes worn at the time. Fourth, contact legal counsel.
As soon as you consult with the Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke, our lawyers will assess your claim. We will work with you to learn about the incident and review the evidence to give an honest opinion about your chance for success in case you decide to pursue your claim.
Our attorneys are known for our vigorous trial work, but we are also effective negotiators. Ultimately, we want you to obtain the financial compensation you need for the medical expenses and other damages you have sustained. If a settlement is not in your best interest, we will tirelessly defend your case in court.
