Premises Liability

Property owners are responsible for the safety of their premises and can be held liable for defects in the property, the improper design and construction of buildings, walkways and staircases of public areas, and the failure to maintain the premises free of hazards. If you were seriously injured in a slip-and-fall accident, contact the Law Offices of Wesley M. Malowitz to schedule a free consultation with a skilled attorney.

Based in Stamford, I have practiced personal injury law since 1991. I represent victims in Fairfield County and throughout Connecticut, and I am a lawyer who is dedicated to providing personalized attention to my clients.

At the Law Offices of Wesley M. Malowitz, I have handled all types of injuries caused by unsafe premises such as:

  • Accumulation of snow and ice on sidewalks, parking lots, condominium walkways and other areas open to the public
  • Defective staircases and railings (old and rickety, or improperly built) and other property defects
  • Improper maintenance and construction claims
  • Foreign substances on floors and stairways

Helping You Recover For Municipal Liability

In most instances, a city or another local governmental entity can be held liable for premises liability. However, the victim must file notice within a specified period of time, and there is often a higher burden on the victim to prove negligence.

I promptly investigate all claims to document and preserve evidence and to file the requisite notice. I may hire investigators, surveyors and perform title searches to properly identify who the responsible owners are.
