Property Owners Are Responsible for Safe Premises
Property owners, businesses and retailers may be held liable for injuries caused by hazards and dangers on their premises. If you have suffered a serious injury due to dangerous conditions in a store, place of business, parking garage or public space, you should consult with an experienced premises liability attorney.
At the New Haven, Connecticut law office of Jacobs & Dow, our premises liability lawyers collect evidence, interview witnesses and investigate the cause of serious injuries involving slip and fall accidents, trip and fall accidents, negligent security, and defective and dangerous property conditions. Once we identify the responsible parties, we seek full, just and fair compensation for your injuries.
Don't Assume That You Don't have a Case; Talk to an Experienced Lawyer
Property owners rarely volunteer to pay for your medical bills and lost wages. Even if you believe you are partially responsible for your premises liability accident, the law may place fault primarily on the property owner. Before deciding that you do not have a case, contact our law firm for a free consultation.
In Connecticut, businesses and retailers may also be liable to persons injured as a result of the normal course of a business or retailer's activities. Injured employees, delivery personnel, contractors or vendors may have the right to sue responsible third parties for compensation in addition to workers' compensation benefits for injuries suffered while on the job.
Negligent Security Can Be the Cause of Serious Assault Injuries
Being a victim of a violent crime is not always just a matter of being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Sometimes businesses and retailers are liable for injuries caused by physical attacks, muggings and sexual assault on their premises. Retailers and businesses owe a duty of care to their patrons. The failure to remedy foreseeable security hazards such as insufficient lighting or unsecured doors can lead to liability on the part of businesses.
Failure to provide security cameras or guards in a garage or parking lot when the threat of crime is foreseeable, can result in legal liability on businesses and stores for personal injuries that result from physical attacks by criminals.
