Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and Fall Attorneys in Bridgeport Seek Compensation for Victims

Fairfield County lawyers hold negligent property owners accountable for your injuries

Even just one second of unsteady footing on a grocery store’s wet floor, a business’s cracked sidewalk or a mall’s icy parking lot can result in a slip and fall, leading to a painful injury. If the property owner knew about these hazardous conditions and failed to act in a timely manner, you may be able to hold them accountable.  At MeehanLaw, LLC in Bridgeport, Connecticut, we help local residents to hold area businesses and individuals responsible for negligent property conditions that lead to slip, trip and fall accidents. If you’ve been injured on someone’s premises, we will pursue the compensation you need to recover and move forward.

Trusted Connecticut law firm represents clients who suffer slip and fall injuries

When you slip and fall on someone’s property, you may require medical treatment for one or more of the following injuries:

  • Fractures — Bones in the hands, wrists and feet become more susceptible to injury when you try to break your fall. Falls are also to blame for thousands of hip fractures every year.
  • Head and brain injuries — Concussions and other traumatic brain injuries can have lasting and serious consequences. If you hit your head in a fall, seek a medical evaluation even if symptoms are not apparent.
  • Spinal cord injuries — Nerve damage, ruptured discs and fractured vertebrae are among the spinal injuries that can cause chronic and severe pain and, in some cases, leave victims paralyzed.
  • Sprains and strains — It is not uncommon for a person to tear or overextend a ligament, tendon or muscle while attempting to prevent a hard landing.
  • Cuts and bruises — Extensive bruising or a sizeable laceration may make it difficult or impossible for you to complete your regular work while you heal.

Having practiced law in Fairfield County since 1961, we understand the needs of our neighbors throughout the community when they are injured on someone’s premises. Our attentive personal injury and wrongful death attorneys treat each case with the attention, professionalism and compassion it deserves.

Meticulous professionals build strong cases for fair victim compensation

To succeed in a slip and fall claim, you must be able to prove that the property owner knew or should have known of a hazardous condition on his premises and failed to take action to correct it or warn visitors.  While Connecticut’s modified comparative negligence standard places the financial responsibility of an accident on the person or entity that caused it, a victim can only collect damages if they are not more than 50 percent at fault for the accident themselves. So, even if a property owner can show that you bear some responsibility for your fall, you can still get compensation but it will be reduced according to your share of liability.

Our firm will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your accident through security camera footage, photographs, witness statements and property repair documents to bolster your case.  We can also consult with medical experts to determine the full extent and costs of your injures before we pursue compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and other losses.

Connecticut requires any personal injury lawsuit to be filed within two years of the accident date, in accordance with the statute of limitations. When you enlist our help, we take prompt action to help you obtain the relief you need.
