When you visit someone else’s property, you have a right to expect that the premises are safe. This includes when you shop at the mall, when you are eating at a restaurant or even when you are at your own apartment. According to Connecticut laws, most property owners have an obligation to keep their premises free from hazards, conduct regular maintenance checks to ensure safety and resolve any known hazards in a timely manner. If they do not take these steps and you are injured as a result, they can be held liable.
Premises liability cases can be challenging to win, but they are not impossible. If you have a valid claim and the right legal counsel, securing fair compensation can be a realistic goal. At Ganim Legal, P.C., our job is to help you reach that goal.
Our law firm has a strong focus on personal injury cases, including those involving accidents on others’ property. We are prepared to help resolve a wide range of premises liability matters, including those involving:
- Slip-and-falls and trip-and-falls
- Parking lot and sidewalk accidents
- Mall and retail store accidents
- Hotel and restaurant accidents
- Apartment complex accidents
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Negligent security leading to assault
- Accidents in private homes
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Faulty maintenance
- Broken stairs
- Roof collapses
- Falling merchandise
After your property accident, it is important to contact a slip-and-fall injury attorney as soon as you can. Business owners have been known to quickly remove hazards or make repairs to protect themselves from insurance increases. As your legal counsel, we will take prompt action to investigate the accident and secure vital evidence. This can include speaking to witnesses or store employees, reviewing police reports, taking photographs, viewing video footage and reviewing maintenance records.
When you work with us, we will do everything in our power to prove that the property owner knew about the hazard but did nothing to fix it or should have known about the hazard through regular checks of the premises. We will also work to show that even with a reasonable amount of care, any guest or visitor would have been injured in the same manner as you.

Medical care comes first following a motorcycle accident. Without the seat belts and enclosures that car and truck drivers enjoy, motorcyclists risk life-changing and sometimes fatal injuries. Medical care is paramount for recovery. Legal representation is vital as well to secure the financial compensation you deserve.
At Ganim Legal, P.C., we fight to even the odds that Connecticut motorcycle accident victims face following an accident. For nearly 25 years, attorney Paul Ganim has fought for the legal rights of his clients by holding negligent parties accountable.
Insurance companies are not on your side. In fact, they will either deny your injury claim or offer you a minimal settlement. Before providing them any details, contact our firm. We will speak on your behalf and build strong, fact-based claims. We know how insurance companies defend themselves against injury claims. In motorcycle accidents, victims are often left paralyzed or suffering traumatic brain injuries.
From the moment we take on your motorcycle accident case, we focus on maximizing your compensation. We combine our experience and legal knowledge with the insight of experts that include accident reconstructionists, medical specialists and life-care planners. On staff, we have a registered nurse who reviews medical records to identify key evidence.
While we prefer to negotiate settlements in personal injury cases, we do not shy away from trial. If arguing a case before a judge or jury can provide the best outcome, we will put our trial experience to work for you and secure favorable verdicts.
