However, the single largest source of premises liability cases result from slip and fall accidents. As a matter of fact, fifteen percent of all accidental deaths are caused by injuries sustained in slip and fall accidents. If you have been injured because someone has failed to properly maintain their property, contact our Longmont slip and fall attorneys for a free case consultation.

Longmont Slip and Fall Accidents

Colorado property owners and occupants have a duty to provide a reasonably safe environment for persons who are on their premises such as, patrons, customers, service personnel, or residents. Warnings should be posted in those areas where a hazard is present until such time that the hazard can be remedied. If a property owner is aware of a hazardous condition and fails to take action, the issue could become a legal liability when someone is injured or killed because of the hazard.

The property owner’s failure to take action could constitute negligence, which is the principal component in personal injury cases.

Compensation for Slip and Fall Accidents

Premises liability cases can be very complex and requires more than proof of injury to be legitimate. It must be shown that the injury was a direct result of a property owner’s negligence in rectifying a hazardous condition of which they were aware. Consequently, those who have been injured due to the negligence of a property owner may pursue compensation for their losses in an injury claim.

Persons who can be injured in a premises liability claim in Colorado fall into one of three categories:

  1. An invitee is a person who has been invited onto the property such as a retail shop customer.
  2. A licensee is anyone who has entered a property for their own purposes.
  3. Trespassers, for instance vandals, enter a property without the right to do so.

In Colorado, both the property owner and the injured party may be held to varying degrees of responsibility for a slip and fall accident. While a property owner has a duty to maintain the premises within a reasonable degree of safety, an individual also has a responsibility to recognize potential hazards. It is in this manner that premises liability cases are evaluated, and compensation is determined.

An attorney can help you recover the maximum amount for your injury including compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. An experienced personal injury attorney will also be able to evaluate your case and determine if you have a valid premises liability case.
