Wet floors may cause falls that lead to premises liability claims

Connecticut property owners and operators have a duty to keep their premises free of hazards or warn visitors of any existing hazards. When these actions are not taken, individuals could find themselves at risk of suffering serious injuries. Unfortunately, property hazards often exist, and when people are injured as a result of certain dangerous conditions, they may have reason to pursue premises liability claims.

It was recently reported that a woman in another state has filed such a claim. Apparently, she was at a banquet hall when she slipped and fell due to some sort of liquid on the floor. It was unclear how big the puddle of liquid was or how long it had been present. Nonetheless, the woman's fall resulted in her suffering injuries.

The premises liability claim she has filed indicates that the fall caused her to suffer permanent injuries and to experience pain. Additionally, she also claims to have lost income and accumulated medical costs. She believes that the owner of the banquet plaza was negligent due to failing to inspect the premises for hazards and failing to provide warnings of dangerous conditions.

Slip-and-fall accidents are common incidents that lead to premises liability claims. Despite their commonplace nature, they can easily result in anyone suffering serious injuries, as was the case with this woman. If individuals have suffered injuries while on someone else's property in Connecticut, they may have reason to seek compensation for the damages caused by the incident. Information on this type of civil legal claim may prove useful to interested parties.
