What causes asphalt to deteriorate?

The parking lot of your local shopping center in Connecticut can be hazardous to you once you exit your vehicle. Parking lots are common sites of slip-and-fall accidents. Sometimes the cause is pavement that becomes wet and slippery due to weather conditions. At other times, the asphalt deteriorates and causes a hazardous condition. 

What are the four types of falls?

Whenever you are walking in Connecticut, you are particularly vulnerable to a fall at the point when your weight shifts from one foot to the other and your body is momentarily off-balance. Any fall from a standing height has the potential to cause serious injury, but according to Occupational Health and Safety, a slip-and-fall incident is actually only one of the four types of falls that can occur.

Are icy roads the only slip and fall risk?

Connecticut residents like you often have to deal with slippery footing in the winter due to the ice and snow. However, just because it is almost summer doesn't mean there are no slipping or tripping hazards out there. Today we will discuss some of summer's most dangerous slip and trip hazards.

Concussions from the swimming pool

As the weather gets nicer, you may plan to host pool parties at your Connecticut home. It is important to remember, though, that people can easily get injuries such as concussions around swimming pools. We at Loughlin Fitzgerald, P.C., are committed to helping you understand what you should do in this situation.

Learn how to fall to reduce the chance of serious injury

You can take all the precautions you like, such as wearing non-slip shoes, watching your step and keeping your path clear of obstacles, but the fact remains that you are likely to slip, trip or tumble your way to an injury at least once in your life. At the law office of Loughlin FitzGerald, P.C., we know that regardless of fault, you and other Connecticut residents can learn the right way to fall so your resulting injuries may be less severe.

Winter weather advisories herald a season of slipping

Connecticut residents know that as fall leaves and winter comes in, bad weather starts to creep in alongside it. There can be ice, hail, rain, or snow. Bad weather like this easily contributes to dangerous conditions, and people going outside should be aware of the risks.

The biggest hazards of parking lots in winter

Connecticut winters can be unforgiving in terms of ice and snow. Between the chilly temperatures and the rush of people out and about getting their holiday shopping done, you should be aware of several of the biggest hazards that you could run into in a parking lot this season.

Falls the leading cause of fatal, nonfatal injury among seniors

While certain factors, among them icy sidewalks, cluttered store aisles and slick surfaces, have the capacity to make anyone fall down, Connecticut’s older residents face an elevated risk of falling and injuring themselves when such environmental factors exist. At Loughlin Fitzgerald, P.C., we recognize that when home and business owners are negligent, they endanger everyone, but today’s older Americans typically have other risk factors in play that make them even more likely to suffer a fall-related injury.
