Connecticut Public Property Liability Claims

As is the case with private property accidents, liability for injuries or deaths resulting from public property accidents rests with the owner, tenant or management company that was “in possession of” or responsible for the property’s maintenance and care. Sometimes a city or town or the state is responsible for injuries because a road or sidewalk was dangerous or defective. However, keep in mind that being liable for injuries is not the same as being willing to fairly compensate for them and that hiring a lawyer can improve your chances for a successful outcome.
