Slip and Fall
Injuries Suffered on Other People’s Property
When we are on other people’s property, we expect it to be well maintained and safe for us to use. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. When property is poorly maintained, we can slip and fall and suffer from broken hips or wrists, or other serious injuries. If that is the situation you are in, we can help you hold the negligent property owners accountable. At the Law Office of Jack O’Donnell, L.L.C., we represent individuals who were injured in situations involving:
- Spilled water or other spilled substances in stores
- Snowy or icy sidewalks
- Defective sidewalks or stairways
- Accidents in public buildings
- Accidents in private residences
Proving Liability in Slip-and-Fall Cases
If you were injured on another person’s premises, one of the most important things you can do to protect your case is contact experienced New Haven slip-and-fall accident attorneys as quickly as possible.
One of the most important parts of a premises liability case is proving liability. When we are contacted quickly, we can get to the scene of the accident and collect the necessary evidence before it disappears or is destroyed. We can take photographs, talk to witnesses and take other appropriate measures to make sure we have good footage of the accident. Waiting too long to contact a lawyer means there is time for the snow to melt, the icy sidewalk to be salted, the stairs to be repaired and the defective premises addressed.
