Understanding Premises Liability In Connecticut

Property owners are not automatically responsible for every injury that occurs on their premises. If you were doing something dangerous or reckless, or if you were simply careless and not paying attention to your surroundings, it is harder to hold the proprietor accountable.

But property owners are responsible for upkeep and inspection, for addressing known or obvious dangerous conditions, and for responding in timely fashion to complaints or safety hazards that arise.

Examples of actionable premises liability personal injury claims including injuries caused by:

  • Slipping and falling on snow or ice
  • Wet or slippery floors
  • Broken stairs or railings
  • Tripping hazards like extension cords and torn rugs
  • Unsecured shelves and falling merchandise
  • Cracked walkways and parking lot potholes
  • Uneven floors or unexpected step-ups and drop-offs
  • Inadequate lighting or broken lights
  • Chemical spills
  • Exposed wiring
  • Dogs that attack 

Although premises liability accidents and injuries can take place in a wide range of settings, they are most common in commercial businesses. For example, you could slip and fall on a puddle in a grocery store or at the bank. You could also trip over broken stairs in a hotel or on government property. In any of these cases, the property owner or manager should be held accountable for their lack of upkeep and disregard for customer safety.
