Dangerous Properties: Legal Help in Connecticut Since 1988
Were you injured in an assault on commercial or residential property? It may come as a surprise that the property owner may be liable for your injuries and loss. Why?
Property owners are responsible for providing a safe environment. Owners’ responsibility doesn’t end at providing safe lighting, surfaces and stairways. They are also responsible for taking reasonable care to provide and maintaining the lighting, gating, fencing, security patrols, alarm systems and safety procedures that ensure visitors will be safe from assault.
At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., we have handled numerous personal injury cases involving inadequate security. Several recent cases illustrate our effectiveness in handling theses cases:
- Our client was injured at a residential/commercial building due to an assault. We conducted a full investigation and settled the case for $300,000.
- Our client was injured when she was assaulted in an apartment complex. Our investigation revealed negligence on the part of the building’s owner. We settled the case out of court for $425,000.
We believe there is no excuse for damaged fencing, un-powered alarm systems, absent security guards and broken light bulbs. The law agrees. When you are attacked on private property, you are not just victimized by the attacker. You are also victimized by the property owner when negligence causes or contributes to the incident.
We have handled cases occurring in commercial, residential, retail and office buildings in good and high-crime neighborhoods. For more information, please contact our firm.
