New Haven Slip and Fall Lawyers

New Haven Slip and Fall Lawyers

While going up and down the aisles, shopping in a grocery store in New Haven, CT, you suddenly slip and fall on a freshly mopped wet floor. After the initial feeling of embarrassment, you look around and notice that there are no yellow signs around that say “caution, wet floor.” 

Feeling the embarrassment sinking deeper, you might be thinking, as most people do, “I’ll just dust myself off and continue shopping.” However, what you may not realize is that by being on a business owner’s property as a visitor, you have the right to have your medical bills–and possibly more–covered by the laws of premises liability. But your compensation all depends on how fast you respond in this situation.

You need a fast-working law firm with lawyers who will aggressively fight for you. Now is the time to call the lawyers of Gould Injury Law at 888-WIN-FAST in New Haven, CT! We are a law firm with experience handling premises liability cases.   

What Exactly Does Premises Liability Mean? 

When a visitor, not a trespasser, is injured on another person’s property (or premises) due to neglect on the part of the owner or operator, there are consequences. The owner of that property could be held responsible for damages even if he or she wasn’t directly involved with the incident. This law applies to all residences or businesses including stores, restaurants, airports, hotels, offices, or their parking lots or sidewalks. 

Think about what you did yesterday. How many times were you on someone else’s property–not just in New Haven, CT, but in other cities as well? When you stop and think about it, you are a property visitor more often than you may realize. 

While “visiting” these various properties throughout the day, don’t forget that the law of premises liability is in effect. On the other hand, do remember that the personal injury lawyers at the firm Gould Injury Law in New Haven are here to help you when you’re injured!

Just being injured on another’s property does not mean that the owner was negligent. Negligence must be proven, and fast. First, a claim of premises liability must be made within 2 years from the date the accident occurred or else your claim cannot be filed.

Further, Connecticut is one state that has applied the rule of modified comparative negligence, which means there is the possibility that the owner may be found only partially at fault which reduces or even throws out your compensation. This is why you need a lawyer. 

At Gould Injury Law in New Haven, our aggressive premises liability lawyers will work hard to help you prove the guilty party’s fault so you can get a settlement fast. Call 888-WIN-FAST today to schedule your free consultation.

Types of Premises Liability Claims

Perhaps you have already heard the phrase “slip and fall”? Well, this sort of injury lies within the realm of premises liability cases and is a very common type of claim. Slip-and-fall accidents occur quite often. In fact, beyond New Haven, slip-and-fall accidents account for over 1 million emergency room visits every year in the US. 

A fall may not sound serious, but these accidents can cause severe injuries resulting in expensive medical bills and years of rehabilitation. When this happens, a person should contact a slip-and-fall lawyer to get legal help fast. 

Some of our practice areas when handling cases of premises liability involve: 

  • Failure to repair loose or deteriorated handrails or steps
  • Falling objects whether inside or outside of a building
  • Poorly maintained sidewalks
  • Poorly marked parking lot hazards
  • Failure to remove ice, snow, and water
  • Inadequate building security
  • Dog bites
  • Elevator and escalator accidents
  • Swimming pool accidents

These scenarios, and others, could create potential for premises liability cases. 

Why Contact Us?

If you experience an unfortunate personal injury while going about your daily routine, call the law firm of Gould Injury Law as soon as possible. Why would it be wise to do so instead of just springing back to your feet and moving on? Perhaps you’re thinking, “I’m not hurting at all.”

Don’t be fooled. Sometimes the effects of a fall or personal injury can take months or years to become fully manifest. If you were injured due to someone else’s carelessness, it only makes sense that he or she should pay for your recovery so you don’t have to foot the bill.
