In the state of Connecticut, property owners and managers have a legal duty to keep their premises safe for all people who may have occasion to use them. This can include simple things such as keeping sidewalks free of ice and other hazards to avoid slip and fall accidents, but also more complex issues such as ensuring hotel room doors have proper locks and hallways are sufficiently lighted.
