Connecticut Slip and Fall Lawyers

A slip and fall can result in unexpectedly severe injuries. Back problems, head injuries and broken bones are common consequences of a slip and fall. When an accident is caused by the property owner's or property maintenance company’s negligence, the injured person may be able to claim compensation for his or her injuries, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

At the New Milford, Connecticut, law firm of Guendelsberger Law Offices, LLP, our attorneys have been helping victims of slip and fall accidents since 1983. We have earned a reputation for aggressive and effective advocacy that gets results for injured people.

Do not hesitate to seek legal advice

If you have suffered a slip and fall accident, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer right away, as there may be limits on how long you have to file a claim. This is particularly true if the accident occurred on public property, as municipal liability is governed by different laws.

Examples of slip and fall accidents

Our attorneys have handled slip and fall cases involving:

  • Uncleared ice and snow
  • Liquids and slippery substances on floors in grocery stores and other retail operations
  • Oil on floors
  • Improperly waxed floors
  • Weak stair rails
  • Broken sidewalks and steps
  • Failure to comply with OSHA standards
  • Swimming pools
  • Dangerous premises

MS patients and slip and fall injuries

We have developed a special focus on people with multiple sclerosis (MS) who experience slip and fall injuries. Because the cause and progression of MS is not known, insurance companies and property owners take refuge in saying that exacerbations of MS were not caused by the accident that resulted from their negligence. We consult with neurologists and other experts who are able to demonstrate to a jury that the slip and fall was the precipitating cause of MS or an exacerbation.
