What are some dangers that exist at New Haven parks?

As the weather warms during the next few months in Connecticut, it's likely that more people will start heading out to parks to get fresh air and enjoy the sunshine. It's as the weather warms up and more families venture out to the parks that injuries tend to soar. Some are more common than others.

Grocery store injuries don't just have to occur inside to sue

If there's one commonality among the different New Haven grocery stores, it's that they all are bright inside thanks to their use of fluorescent bulbs. The truth is that despite being well-lit, countless individuals have slip-and-fall incidents both in and outside of grocery stores every year. If you're seriously injured in such an incident, you'll be relieved to find out that you may be able to sue the store for your medical costs and lost wages.

How you can avoid being attacked while walking to your car

When you step out to your car at night in a dark parking lot, you could put yourself at risk of being attacked. A lot of violent attacks are crimes of opportunity -- so the best way to protect yourself is to be aware of the potential for a mugging, carjacking or assault and take specific precautions.

Whose responsibility is it to keep New Haven's sidewalks clean?

Although the weather patterns so far this year may cause many of us to think differently, winter hasn't actually officially begun yet. It's actually still a few days away. That doesn't mean that you haven't navigated snowy sidewalks and streets already though. As you've gone about doing so, you may have wondered who the city of New Haven says is responsible for shoveling sidewalk around town.

Can I file an injury claim if signs were posted where I got hurt?

It happens all the time. An individual may notice a sign warning them of the wet floors, presence of a dog or even not to enter a property, but they continue along their way as if they didn't notice it ... and they wind up getting hurt. If this has happened to you, you may wonder if you have any rights to sue the property or pet owner for your injuries.
