Premises Liability: Who's Responsible for My Injuries?

Have you been injured on someone else's inadequately maintained property? If so, you probably have questions about who is responsible for providing you with compensation. Well, in the state of Connecticut, it is the responsibility of all property owners to provide a safe environment for any visitors that will be entering the property-meaning that if they notice any potentially hazardous conditions on the premises, they are legally required to remedy the problem in a timely manner. This is true of residential property owners, commercial businesses and even government property.

For this reason, if you were involved in a slip and fall accident in a grocery store aisle because a spilled product was left on the floor, for example, you would be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Just as you would have grounds to pursue a premises liability lawsuit if you were to trip and fall on cracked pavement outside of someone's home.

In the event that you were to be injured under these negligent circumstances, however, it is important that you act quickly in the interest of protecting your rights. Many times, sufficient evidence is the only way to show that a property owner and/or manager has acted negligently within the scope of their responsibilities. As such, it is vital that you preserve and document any evidence that was involved in the accident before it is cleaned up or moved. Failing to do so could severely jeopardize your ability to recover compensation later on.

At McCoy & McCoy, we understand that being seriously injured can be an overwhelming experience, however, so we urge you to let us take the reins as early on in the process as possible. In doing so, you will have the opportunity to focus on your recovery while we handle the legal complexities involved in pursuing rightful compensation.
