Connecticut Slip and Fall Accident Claims
We have obtained significant recoveries in cases of unsafe stairs and other dangers that cause slip and fall, or trip and fall accidents. Contact us.
Slip and fall accidents on stairs are very common. Many staircases that appear safe are not. That is one of the reasons why there are so many safety and building codes regulating the height of risers, depth of tread and specifications of hand rails.
Even when properly designed and installed, stairs must be maintained in good condition in order to remain safe for use. Worn, cracked or improperly marked stairs can cause a serious fall. Debris on stairs or even improper stairway lighting can lead to a very dangerous situation. Falling down stairs can cause extremely severe injuries, including head and brain injury, back and spinal cord injury and even death.
If you suffered a serious injury in a fall down steps or stairs — or a slip and fall accident of any kind — we can offer you an honest evaluation of your premises liability case in a free consultation with an experienced personal injury lawyer. Contact us today.
Dedication and Experience that Works
At the Law Offices of John J. LaCava, LLC, our premises liability attorneys handle serious and fatal accidents on private and public premises throughout Fairfield County, including slip and fall accidents on slippery surfaces caused by spills or ice and trip and fall accidents due to sidewalk or walkway defects and obstructions.
It may be necessary to enlist the services of experts in order to prove a premises liability claim in a slip and fall or trip and fall accident. We can help you find professionals who can determine whether fire and safety code violations may have caused your accident.
The age of the building in question is important. Any new or recent construction is almost certainly required to comply with fire and safety codes. Older buildings, however, may be exempt under a "grandfather clause." As you can tell, these cases can be complex. Your rights and interests may best be served by consulting an experienced lawyer as soon as possible following a slip and fall accident.
