Bristol Slip and Fall Lawyers

Who is Responsible for a Slip and Fall Accident and Why?

In Bristol, Connecticut, private citizens, businesses, municipalities, and the federal government must all provide reasonably safe conditions for people. When you are injured on another party’s property, they may be considered liable for your injuries.

Understanding what is legally considered “reasonably safe” in our Bristol, CT, area can be complicated. An experienced premises liability attorney who understands personal injury law can help you navigate these complex legal waters. Premises liability cases require an attorney who is familiar with these laws and can get you the compensation you deserve as fast as possible. 

In Bristol, CT, some of the most common causes of premises liability claims include:

  • Walkways in disrepair or left unmaintained
  • Deficient lighting
  • Faulty or old stairways
  • Unsecured items above a person
  • Insufficient or careless security

What Can Affect Your Slip and Fall Injury Compensation?

In addition to the types of injuries you suffered and who was at fault, an important aspect of premises liability law is the reason you were on the property. Depending on the visitor’s status, this can affect how you may be compensated legally.

An attorney can help you determine what type of visitor you were at the time of your accident and what degree of compensation you can receive. These are the general classifications:

  • Trespassers–A trespasser is someone who has no legal right to be on the property. Generally, it is difficult for a trespasser to receive compensation. However, if it can be proven that the property owner knew it is probable that a trespasser would come onto the property, then he or she could be held liable.
  • Licensees–A licensee is on the property to do something for themselves with the owner’s consent. The licensee must be informed of any present dangers, and the owner may not be under a legal obligation to fix them.
  • Invitees–An invitee is invited to enter the property. The owner must provide all reasonable safeguards to ensure the invitee’s safety.
  • Children–Regardless of whether the child was an invitee or a trespasser, the law requires a property owner to take intensified precautions to protect children from harm on a property.

A Gould Injury Law personal injury attorney knows your rights and can explain them to you. We can help you understand legally what type of visitor you were at the time you were injured. Together, we can determine how to build a strong case so you can receive fair compensation for your injuries.
