Bridgeport Premises Liability Lawyers

Serious injuries have consequences on the victim’s finances, physical abilities, and future job prospects. If you have been injured while visiting a property that wasn’t properly secured, you may be entitled to pursue compensation from the person responsible. Property owners must keep those who visit their spaces safe no matter if the property is commercial or residential.

Do I Need a Premises Liability Lawyer?

When a property owner’s passivity or outright negligence creates an unsafe environment for others to inhabit, they should be held responsible. Being the victim of an accident can be expensive. If you’ve been injured on someone else’s property, you may come away from experience with physical injuries, bills related to hospital stays and rehabilitative therapy, along with time spent away from work. Especially if you are the primary earner for your household, your family will undoubtedly experience additional financial strain from the whole ordeal.

By taking legal action to pursue the responsible party, accident victims not only fight for the financial benefits that they need, but they also make sure that the property owner is held to a high standard. Many people who act negligently do not do so maliciously, they are unaware of actions that should be taken. This, however, is not a good enough excuse and taking legal action can be an excellent way to ensure that the injury that was caused does not happen to other people in the future.

A Duty of Care and Premises Liability

In premises liability cases specifically, the law establishes how much responsibility a property owner must claim for those who inhabit their property, this is called a duty of care. A property owner’s duty of care will vary based on who the visitor is. In Connecticut, there are three different classifications which include, invitee, licensee, and trespasser.

Invitees are guests to a property and have the most protections under premises liability law. An example of an invitee includes dining guests at a restaurant or shoppers at a store. They are called invitees because they are invited guests, at least implicitly, of a property.

Licensees also have some protections, but not as many as invitees, under Connecticut law. A licensee has permission to visit the premises, but they are not there for the property owner’s direct benefit. An example of a licensee is a salesperson who calls on an office.

The final category, trespasser, is afforded the least protection. Property owners are rarely held accountable for any injury caused to harm by trespassers unless they intentionally set out to harm trespassers. For example, a property owner is not protected under the law if they set up traps for trespassers.
