Seeking justice for victims

New Haven Slip-And-Fall Lawyer

Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents can result in some extremely severe injuries to victims. Perhaps the most tragic part is that these accidents are among the most preventable. If property owners would simply remain diligent in their duty to provide a hazard-free environment and respond in a timely manner to any hazards that may arise.

In too many cases, however, property owner negligence and a lack of concern for visitor safety leave hazards unattended, leading to broken bones, spinal cord injuries, head trauma and other serious injuries to victims. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an accident that occurred because of a property owner’s failure to properly attend to a slipping or tripping hazard, a qualified personal injury lawyer can help to ensure that your rights are protected.

I represented the plaintiff in the case of Musto v. WalMart. My client slipped and fell on wet flooring at the WalMart in Branford, Connecticut, suffering a fractured kneecap. WalMart’s final settlement offer was $65,000. At the end of the trial, a New Haven jury awarded my client damages totaling $472,068.
