In Connecticut, property owners, landlords, and managers have obligations regarding the safety of premises under their possession and control. This is true whether the property owner is a private person, business, or government entity. This responsibility is far-reaching and applies to the maintenance of areas such as parking lots, grocery store aisles, and sidewalks. In the case of sidewalks, for example, owners, landlords, and managers must do things like provide proper lighting, remove snow and ice, make necessary repairs, and warn of dangerous conditions, such as cracks, holes, and uneven walking surfaces. When necessary and proper care is not taken, people can get hurt.
Although unsafe property conditions cause all manner of injuries, the majority of accident victims are hurt by slips and falls. These accidents can occur in a variety of ways, including:
