Dumas v. Schumanski

In Dumas v. Schumanski, Superior Court, judicial district of New London at Norwich, Docket No. 105155 (May 23, 1996) (16 Conn. L. Rptr. 613), the court concluded that the language of 13a-149, which provides that "any person injured . . . by means of a defective road or bridge may recover damages from the party bound to keep it in repair"; ; clearly and unambiguously places liability for injuries caused by a defective road, including a sidewalk, on the party primarily responsible for its maintenance which, under 21, is the abutting property owner. Id., 614.
