Labor Day weekend is one of the most popular times of the year to go to a friend or family member’s home and cap off summer with a get together. Many Connecticut residents and Americans everywhere will look forward to these parties. However, many people don’t realize that when they go to another person’s home, there is a possibility that some type of injury could occur.

Property owners are responsible for the condition of their property. Dangerous property conditions must be swiftly addressed in order to keep those who may be visiting the property safe. Any given property could have security concerns or an area where guests and visitors might be more prone to a fall. Or, homeowners in Connecticut may not have their pets properly secured, leading to one of the most common causes of serious injuries: dog bites.

Homeowners aren’t the only property owners who must be aware of the conditions on their property. Commercial and retail property owners, such as shopping malls and grocery stores, are also under a duty to provide a safe and secure environment for their customers.

At our law firm, we understand that the concept of pursuing financial compensation from a friend or family member may seem daunting. Or, the prospect of recovering compensation from a big commercial or retail business may seem unlikely. But, Connecticut residents who suffer injuries on another party’s property will likely be facing significant medical expenses. When this occurs, financial compensation can help.
