In Connecticut, any person or business that is responsible for a property can be held liable for injuries that occur at their location due to a failure to provide reasonably safe premises. This can include landowners, property managers, landlords, and even government entities. In some cases, liability may lie with more than one party.
The law gets complex when you consider what "reasonably safe" means, and those responsible for properties have attorneys who know how to manipulate those two words to cheat you out of a fair settlement. If you have been injured on someone's property, a premises liability attorney from our office can investigate your case, establish liability, and fight to get you the full compensation you deserve.
Premises Liability Issues
Things that may constitute an unsafe premise include:
- Unmaintained walkways
- Inadequate lighting
- Poorly maintained stairways
- Unsecured overhanging inventory
- Inadequate or negligent security
If you have been injured on someone else's property, a premises liability attorney can look into all surrounding circumstances and help you determine the most effective course of action.
