Slip and Fall Lawyer in Hartford
Accidents from Wet, Icy and Snowy Grounds
The state of Connecticut is subject to large amounts of precipitation, whether it is rain or snow. These harsh weather conditions make people more prone to slip and fall accidents. Visitors come and go, tracking in snow on the floors inside stores. Snow accumulates on the roofs of buildings, lead ing to leaks inside the building, once a warm front moves in and melts the snow. Pipes can freeze and burst, also creating leaks and puddles. Rain puddles can freeze overnight and create patches of ice. Property owners must be vigilant about keeping their premises safe and secure to avoid liability from injuries incurred on their property. Even homeowners are required to properly shovel the snow in their entryway to make sure no one gets hurt while trying to get to their front door.
