Connecticut Premises Liability Lawyer

Fighting For Those Who Have Been Injured on Someone Else's Property

RisCassi & Davis, P.C. has pursued many claims arising from injuries occurring because of defective and unreasonably dangerous conditions in stores, restaurants, homes, walkways, stairways, or other premises. Although sometimes casually referred to as “fall down cases,” these cases are generally known in the law as “premises liability cases.”

Premises liability covers many different types of cases, including:

  • Snow or ice on roads, driveways, and parking lots, that has not been properly cleared or sanded
  • Oil, water, or a foreign object or substance on the floor of a supermarket or other store
  • Improperly stacked merchandise, in warehouse-style or other retail stores
  • Lack of proper handrails or proper lighting
  • Structural defects, such as wobbly steps or rotten decks
  • Violations of fire, safety, or building codes and regulations
  • Negligent security, exposing customers or guests to a risk of assault or other crime
  • Unsafe construction sites, such as the failure of a general contractor or another subcontractor to properly protect floor or roof openings

What is the Statute of Limitations For Premises Liability Claims in Connecticut?

There are time limits on these claims. In any kind of legal claim, we generally recommend promptly consulting with a Connecticut premises liability attorney regarding your legal rights, so that the attorney has an adequate opportunity to evaluate your potential claims before the expiration of the statute of limitations. This rule is especially important with regard to claims arising from falls on public property.

There are two main reasons:

  • There are very short deadlines for preserving some claims against government defendants. Complicated liability issues that may sometimes arise as to which potential defendant may be responsible for the particular defective condition.
  • Cases involving falls on defective public sidewalks may have short deadlines for giving notice to the city or town responsible for maintaining the area. If you do not provide the notice within the specified time, you may be barred from recovering on your claim.

Therefore, it is generally a good idea to consult with a Connecticut premises liability attorney as soon as possible, if you are injured on public property. If you delay, you run the risk that the deadline(s) for notice may pass.

Determining Liability for Premises Accidents 

It is not always obvious who is responsible for the defective condition of a public sidewalk or road in Connecticut. The town or city? The neighboring landowner? The state of Connecticut? A contractor or developer? The answers may depend upon the facts of your particular case. In fact, in some sidewalk snow and ice cases, the answer may actually vary from town to town.

It can all get pretty complicated; another reason that in the wake of a fall on public property, we believe you should promptly review the facts of your case with a qualified premises liability lawyer in Connecticut. The attorneys at RisCassi & Davis, P.C. has handled hundreds of cases based upon all of these different claims of defective or dangerous conditions.
