A recent Connecticut Superior Court decision held that a property owner owes a duty to someone who visitors their property to fix or warn about a defective conditions on the property even if someone else created the defect. This is known as a slip and fall case. That means if you are on someone elses property, as a visitor or patron of a commercial place, and get hurt, due to negligence, by a defect in the property, you can sue the owner even if someone else, other than the owner, created the defect. If you are hurt in this situation it is important to protect your rights and report the injury, to the owner or store manager if you are in a store, right away. You must also try to preserve or document what caused you to get hurt. If you are in a store and fall because you slip on food spilled on the floor, please take a picture of it or get the store manager so you can fill out an incident report and describe what you fell on in the report. If there are surveilance cameras get a copy of the tape or tell the store to keep the video.
