ct sidewalk lawNow that spring is in full swing, Connecticut residents are out and about taking walks in the evenings with children, grandchildren and dogs. As a pedestrian, it is important to understand Connecticut laws regarding sidewalk safety.

If you or a loved one was injured on a city or state sidewalk:

  1. Seek medical treatment immediately whether with your primary care physician or at the emergency room.
  2. Document the scene of the accident as best you can from all angles, views etc. Documenting weather conditions is also important.
  3. Contact an experienced and knowledgeable slip and fall attorney immediately. There is an extremely short window of time (as short as 90 days) for you to file a claim against a municipality or the state of Connecticut.

Slip and fall accidents can cause serious injuries. Do not speak to the insurance adjuster for the municipality without consulting a Connecticut slip and fall attorney to discuss all of your options.
