Waterbury Premises Liability Lawyer

Seeking Justice After a Premises Liability Accident

Property owners who fail adequately to secure their property put their guests, clients, and customers at risk of serious injury. If you have been hurt on unsafe premises, you may be coping with severe physical damage and the resulting medical costs.

When property owners put their guests in harm’s way, injury victims should not be left to deal with the financial consequences of their injuries. A skilled personal injury lawyer can help you pursue compensation from negligent property owners when they abdicate their duties.

Though accidents often happen in a flash, the physical, emotional, and financial consequences can reach far into the future. The Waterbury premises liability attorneys at Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers have 140 years of combined legal experience representing members of our community who have paid the price for other people’s recklessness.

We understand how alone you may feel in the wake of an accident and we are ready to help you take action to pursue the compensation that you need. Call our Waterbury office today at (203) 437-6190 to learn in more detail how we can help you, or email us by filling out an online contact form.

Do I Need a Premises Liability Lawyer?

If you’ve never taken legal action before or sought legal help, the process may be intimidating or seem exhausting in light of everything you’ve already been through. The truth is, the guidance of a skilled injury lawyer will make the process easier for you so that you can quickly obtain the compensation that you deserve. When attempting to file a claim alone, you could face unnecessary delaying tactics, and a lawyer will be able to better determine when this happens and push your claim forward.

Injuries often cause financial strain as they force you to deal with medical costs related to initial treatment as well as rehabilitative therapy. Experienced injury lawyers understand that you need to recover your out-of-pocket costs sooner than later, and they will be able to help you recover the money that you need far sooner than you would be able to on your own.

Property owners aren’t always willing to admit fault when they have put guests in danger. In many cases, the insurance company will attempt to reach out to you if you have filed an injury claim. Insurance agents calling on property owner’s behalf don’t have your best interest in mind. All of these calls or contact attempts should be referred to your attorney so that you do not accidentally hurt the strength of your case.

Premises Liability Cases We Handle

The category of premises liability is a large umbrella the encompasses a range of cases. The following are some of the premises liability cases that the Waterbury attorneys at Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers handle.

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Snow and ice accidents
  • Failure to properly maintain premises
  • Elevator accidents
  • Escalator accidents
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Amusement park accidents
  • Negligent or inadequate security
  • Toxic chemical exposure or leaks
  • Fires

An important detail in premises liability cases is the victims’ reason for being on the property. The duty of care of a property owner owes guests differs depending on if they are an invitee, a licensee, or a trespasser.

Duty of Care in Connecticut

Invitees are considered invited, or implicitly invited, guests to a property. For example, shoppers in a grocery store or people dining at a restaurant are considered invitees. If they are injured because of a property owner’s negligence, then legal action can be taken to pursue compensation.

Licensees differ from invitees in that they are owed less from the property owner. These licensees are not owed the same amount of care because they are not necessarily on the property to benefit the property owner. However, they still have permission to be there. An example of a licensee is a salesperson calling on an office park.

Lastly, a trespasser is not typically protected under premises liability law. The property owner is not responsible for injury caused to uninvited occupants of their property. Though property owners do not owe trespassers the same duty of care as they do invitees if they purposely facilitate unsafe conditions to cause harm to trespassers they open themselves up to legal action.

If you have been hurt on an unsafe property and are unsure what your guest status was at the time of your injury we are happy to consult with you to clarify the details of your situation.
