When someone in Connecticut is involved in a slip and fall liability lawsuit—whether as plaintiff or defendant—a Connecticut slip and fall expert witness is an important part of the case. Presenting facts about the flooring conditions surrounding the accident helps the judge and jury make a decision on who is responsible.
About Slip and Fall Accidents
Connecticut business owners who care about their employees and customers feel the responsibility to keep the conditions at the workplace hazard-free. However, flooring is often not realized as a big contributor to workplace accidents until there is a slip and fall accident that happens. Slip and fall accidents can lead to injuries both big and small. Back, head, shoulder, knee, hip, wrist and hand injuries can be quite severe as a result of slip and fall accidents at work. Victims may face weeks or months of pain, medical bills, rehabilitation, loss of wages and much more.
If a Connecticut business owner has been negligent about maintaining the flooring, the court will determine that there should be some penalties. Neglect might be present, for example, if the business owner didn’t make repairs, properly clean or maintain the flooring, allowed debris or clutter to obstruct the walkway, and many other scenarios. The Connecticut business owner would then be responsible for medical bills, legal fees, and even a monetary amount for pain and suffering in some cases. If the slip and fall accident was simply an accident, then the business owner should not be found negligent.
