A dangerous property condition, such as uneven stairs or concrete, poor lighting, or inadequate security can result in serious injury. In Waterbury, property owners are required by law to keep their properties free from dangerous conditions and fix them in a timely manner when they are present. If they fail to do so, they can be held legally responsible for the resultant injuries that occur.

While it is technically possible to handle a premises liability claim on your own, we highly recommend that you speak with an attorney. These types of claims typically involve large insurance companies or corporate entities.
They require a full understanding of Connecticut law and a complete understanding of the insurance claims and legal processes involved. Trying to handle your claim without an attorney can put you at a distinct disadvantage. In most cases, insurance companies offer higher settlements to claimants who have hired a premises liability attorney than they do to those without legal representation. Furthermore, a lawyer can answer all your questions and give you much-needed peace of mind throughout the claims process.
There are many different ways that a premises liability claim can arise as there are a seemingly endless number of potentially dangerous conditions that can exist on a given property. Some of the most common incidents, however, include:
Any of these incidents (and many others) can lead to serious injuries such as dislocations, broken bones, cuts and scrapes, head trauma, brain injuries, back and spine injuries, organ injuries, illnesses, and wrongful death. In these situations, the property owner may owe the victim compensation. Our attorneys help clients achieve fair financial recoveries in Waterbury.
In Connecticut, property owners are legally responsible for injuries on their property if they owed the injured person a duty to keep them safe. The scope of this duty depends on the type of person (known as a visitor) that is injured on their property. Invitees, the best example of which are customers of a business, are owed the highest duty.
Property owners are required to keep the premises clear of defects and dangerous conditions or fix them in a reasonably timely manner and post warnings. Typically, owners are not liable for those injured while trespassing, unless the injured trespasser is under the age of 18.
In these cases, the duty of care typically involves tasks such as checking for hazards on the property, making repairs and posting warning signs. It could also involve preventing accidents by putting a barrier around a pool or hiring security guards.
Premises liability claims are complex and often difficult to handle. If you were injured, an experienced attorney can help you understand who may be responsible for your injuries and what your options are moving forward.
