Slip-And-Fall Accidents

Shopping in a store or walking in a parking lot is a routine act that usually does not lead to injury. Patrons enter the property under the assumption that the area is safe and well-maintained. People invited to someone's home or other private property have the right to expect it to be safe.

However, too many property owners fail to identify and correct hazards, leading to slips, trips and serious injuries.

Hartford slip-and-fall accident attorney Tony Sheffy, founding partner of Sheffy, Mazzaccaro, DePaolo & DeNigris, LLP, protects the rights of Connecticut residents injured on residential and commercial property in places like Waterbury, Southington and neighboring areas. Residential and commercial property owners have an obligation to maintain their premises, keeping it safe and free of hazards and hidden dangers.

Quick Basics On Premises Liability Law

Liability is based on the status of the person who was injured on the property. Trespassers — sometimes children crawling over a fence that encloses a swimming pool — lack permission to be there and generally cannot sue the owner. Limited or implied consent to be on someone's property applies to a delivery person or other "licensee." Guests invited on to the property assume that the homeowner is diligent and proactive in maintaining property free of hazards and hidden dangers.
