Our Plaintiffs’ Lawyers Are On Your Side
The Hartford, Connecticut, law firm of Brignole, Bush & Lewis is dedicated to representing people who have been injured through no fault of their own. Our lawyers have a strong track record of success in this area of the law.
Property owners who are negligent or unresponsive to complaints about unsafe conditions need to be held accountable, and injured people need assistance with medical bills, lost wage replacement, and pain and suffering. A well-executed premises liability claim or lawsuit can bring the necessary support to someone recovering from a fall, an explosion, an animal attack or an assault.
What Exactly Is Premises Liability?
Because it encompasses a variety of situations and incidents, premises liability can be a difficult concept to grasp. If you think you may have a premises liability claim but are unsure, contact our veteran attorneys for a free consultation and case evaluation.
Some examples of premises liability cases can include:
- Slip-and-fall injury cases, which could occur due to slippery conditions inside a retail store, for example, or due to an icy sidewalk; you could also get hurt by tripping and falling due to uneven pavement, an improperly set up display at a store, or some other hazard
- Explosions resulting in burn injuries and more
- Dog bite injuries, for which both property owners and dogs’ owners may be liable
- An assault injury in a parking garage, nightclub or bar due to negligent security
How You Can Help Yourself First
You should seek medical attention right away in these cases.
Also, if possible, try to record the details of your accident – where it happened, names of witnesses, and other facts to help bolster your injury claim or lawsuit.
For best results, get a personal injury lawyer on your case as soon as possible, before valuable evidence such as video surveillance footage becomes difficult or impossible to retrieve.
