What is a Slip and Fall Accident?
“Slip and fall” is the common terminology for one type of premises liability case. Premises liability law is based on the legal requirement that all property owners or leasees must maintain their property in safe conditions. While all slip and fall cases are considered premises liability cases, not all premises liability cases are considered slip and fall cases.
If you slip or trip on a property owned by someone else due to their negligence, this could make you eligible to bring a slip and fall case. To be eligible to receive compensation in your slip and fall case, you must bring your claim within the statute of limitations window, which is two years from the date of the accident or when the injury was known. Contact our New Haven slip & fall lawyers for additional guidance.

How Much Financial Compensation Can You Recover from a Slip and Fall Case in New Haven?
It can be difficult to estimate the exact number of financial damages that a victim may be able to receive as the result of a slip and fall case. However, individuals can typically expect to receive either economic damages, non-economic damages or both.
Economic damages cover the victim’s losses. Non-economic damages compensate victims for intangible losses (such as pain and suffering). Punitive damages penalize wrongdoers.
