It is not that big of an expectation that when Connecticut residents leave their homes they should not have to be in fear of potential dangerous property conditions at the locations they visit. The owners of grocery stores, shopping malls, hotels and all manner of retail and commercial locations have an obligation to ensure that these locations are free from property conditions that could result in harm to the customers and visitors that they seek to have visit the locations to spend their money.
But, commercial and retail locations aren’t the only places where Connecticut residents could suffer an injury. In fact, it may be your as close as your neighbors house. Were you invited over for a barbecue and then you slipped on a wet floor or tripped over a broken board on the deck? Did the neighbor’s dog bite you? There are any number of scenarios in which a person could be injured on another person’s private party.
Whatever the circumstances of the injury you suffered, it is important to consider your options to attempt to recover compensation so that you can pay for medical expenses. In the case of a private homeowner, perhaps all you will need to do is submit a claim against the property owner’s homeowner insurance. In the case of retail and commercial locations, perhaps a private settlement could be reached. These are obviously the best-case scenarios.
At our law firm, we understand that injured Connecticut residents will likely want to consider all of the available options before they take action. While we would all like to believe that an amiable result can be reached, sometimes litigation is necessary.
