Did A Property Owner’s Negligence Cause Your Injury?
All property owners have a duty to keep their property safe, including private citizens, businesses and even the government. If they do not and you are injured as a result, they may be responsible for all damages caused.
You should not have to suffer for someone else’s inactions. At Weber & Carrier, our attorneys are well-versed in the complexities of premises liability. We will pursue every available avenue for compensating you for your injuries, but will only accept payment once you have a settlement in hand. Hundreds of clients throughout the Hartford area have trusted us with their cases. We look forward to earning your trust as well.
What Counts As Hazardous Property?
A wide variety of things falls under premises liability law. Here are some of the hazards that our clients have dealt with in the past:
- Unshoveled ice and snow
- Inadequate security measures
- Dog bites and other animal attacks
- Unsafe store displays and falling merchandise
- Slippery conditions that cause you to fall
In all of these cases, property owners have a legal duty to identify and resolve these dangerous conditions. A failure to do so will likely count as negligence.
Common Strategies For Avoiding Liability
Property owners almost never want to pay what they owe in a premises liability case, so their attorneys will likely make a number of arguments against you. Some common ones include:
- You were not being reasonably careful and caused your own injury.
- You should have noticed the hazard and did not.
- The property owner was unaware of the hazard and did not have a chance to correct it, possibly because it was recent.
They will likely use other arguments as well. Our job is to build a case so strong that these counterarguments do not stand up to scrutiny. We will carefully examine the full details of your situation, knowing what the opposing strategies will be. With our experience on your side, you will have the best possible chance of success.
