Protecting Your Legal Interests After a Sidewalk Accident
Each day, thousands of people across the United States, including in Connecticut, end up injured while walking on a sidewalk. This type of injury typically occurs because of a defect in the sidewalk or because of some sort of obstruction or hazard on the walkway.
If you have been injured as the result of an accident that occurred on a sidewalk, you need to understand your legal rights. You also need to appreciate what steps you must take to best protect those vital legal interests.
Contact a Connecticut Personal Injury Attorney Right Away
In the aftermath of an accident on a public sidewalk, you must be proactive in consulting with a skilled, experienced Connecticut personal injury attorney, at Licari, Walsh & Sklaver, LLC. They have the experience and know how to help.
If the sidewalk is under the control of a public or governmental agency, making a claim for your injuries becomes more complex. When facing a governmental injury in the aftermath of an accident that resulted in injuries, you face a complicated task ahead. Indeed, not all Connecticut personal injury lawyers understand the ins and outs of making a claim for damages in an accident case against the government. And there are strict time requirements for giving notice to the public body in charge of the sidewalk — if this notice is not given, in most instances your claim will be lost. You need to consult with a lawyer that has a background on representing injured people in claims and cases brought against a governmental entity.
