Fairfield County Premises Liability Attorney
People are injured every day by tripping or slipping and falling down due to unsafe conditions in various locations. Whether in a privately owned establishment, a large public location, or a sidewalk around town, cracks, spills, and other unsafe conditions abound nearly everywhere.
These unsafe conditions, dubbed hidden dangers, can make the injury victim eligible to receive compensation. At Brickley Law, our experienced New Canaan personal injury lawyer has helped numerous clients to recover compensation for things like medical expenses, rehabilitation, and other losses from an accident caused by unsafe premises conditions.
Are You Eligible For Compensation?
When determining liability for a premises-related injury, the state of Connecticut primarily considers whether the person on the property was there as an invited guest, a licensee, or a trespasser. These titles have specific legal definitions apart from their casual use in everyday conversation.
The types of individuals classified in a premises liability claim include:
- An invitee is someone who was expressly invited onto the property in question. When this is the case, property owners are required to give their invited guest the best possible safety considerations and precautions.
- A licensee is authorized by the property owner to enter, but may not have been expressly invited onto the property. Nonetheless, the owner still has the implied duty to notify the licensee of any hidden dangers.
- A trespasser is someone who enters property without the right or permission to do so. In this instance, owners are not required to warn the trespasser of any hidden dangers and are rarely held responsible for a trespasser’s injuries.
When you have been injured due to hidden dangers on someone else’s property, it is highly advised that you obtain the services of a skilled New Canaan personal injury lawyer to help you navigate the legal process. Attorney Ann Halan Brickley of Brickley Law has over 20 years of legal experience and has been backed by numerous satisfied clients.
