Every property owner — public or private — is responsible for maintaining "safe" property conditions and for adequately warning others of existing dangers that have not yet been remedied. When property owners fail to meet this obligation, people can be seriously injured or killed as the result. In private property accident cases the law says that the owner, the tenant, a caretaker, or management company that was "in possession of" the property is liable for damages.
If you have been seriously injured in a private premises accident, seek appropriate medical care; have your injuries evaluated and documented; and contact an attorney who can protect your rights to receive compensation.
Dedication and Experience that Works
At the Law Offices of John J. LaCava, LLC, our premises liability lawyers handle private property accident claims on behalf of people throughout Fairfield County. Some examples of the types of private property accident cases we handle include:
- Slip and fall accidents due to snow and ice buildup
- Trip and fall accidents due to sidewalk defects, loose obstructions, or staircase flaws
- Swimming pool accidents
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Fires in Apartments or Multi-family dwellings
Where does compensation in private property cases come from? In private property accident claims, a judgment is usually sought against the homeowners' insurance carrier or from the homeowner themselves. Infrequently, a third party, such as the manufacturer of a defective staircase, may also be held liable. In any case, hiring an attorney can make certain that all possible sources of compensation are considered.
Our firm also understands that the time period immediately following a serious accident is very difficult, and that many other issues and questions arise, beyond just compensation. What you will find at Attorney John LaCava is a friendly and relaxed office environment where the entire staff is helpful and where we do our best to provide you with honest answers and information that will empower you to make good legal decisions concerning your case.
