Premises liability laws require property owners to provide reasonably safe conditions for visitors and various types of guests. While the circumstances can vary depending on the type of property and guest involved, premises liability laws generally require landowners to keep their property safe for the benefit of people who are using or occupying the land.
Whether the property is a public business, such as a retail store, supermarket, or restaurant, a housing complex, or a privately owned residence, property owners must follow laws to ensure that people can be safe on their property. And when premises owners fail to follow these laws or neglect their duty to keep property safe, and people suffer an injury as a result, the landowner may be held accountable for the victim’s damages. If you have suffered an injury, our Connecticut premises liability attorneys are ready to fight for you.
There are many different types of accidents that fall under the category of “premises liability.” Among the most common accidents are
- “slip and falls,” which can occur when a victim is injured by slipping, tripping, or
- falling as a result of a preventable hazard, which may include wet floors, uneven flooring, cords or wires, poor lighting, defective stairs, and other dangers.
