Personal Injury

Connecticut Personal Injury Lawyer

As personal injury lawyers, we often talk with people who ask whether the injury they suffered while walking through a supermarket or slipping on an escalator will have merit as a personal injury claim. In most cases, the courts will only consider a claim if the property owner or person responsible for your care acted with negligence. Negligence is best defined as the failure to exercise the safety precautions or standard of care that a prudent person would exercise, under similar circumstances.

If you slipped on a small patch of ice in a parking lot during a snowstorm in January, the courts might rule that the dangerous condition could not have been reasonably and immediately prevented. On the other hand, if a box of heavy products fell on you from a top shelf because it was not stored properly by a store employee, the courts might reasonably conclude that common-sense safety precautions were not followed.
