Understanding Slip and Fall Accidents in Denver

Lawyer_Injured_ClientSlip and falls can occur anywhere in Denver and throughout the State of Colorado. These accidents are also known as premises liability accidents and they can be more serious than they sound. Landlords, business owners, and companies have a duty to keep their properties safe for all customers and visitors. This includes fixing known defects, having adequate lighting, and promptly mopping up spills and water. When a business or entity fails to keep their properties safe, they can be responsible for accidents that occur on their property.

Slip and fall accidents are no laughing matter—even if they are the butt of movie jokes and slapstick comedies. Slipping on a banana peel is painful and can lead to serious and long-term complications, especially if you sustain a painful back or head injury. Landlords that fail to fix broken balcony railings can be responsible if someone falls to their death. Likewise, a store’s failure to implement proper safety protocols during rainstorms and ice storms can make them liable for accidents that occur both in the parking lot and in the store.

Understanding how slip and fall accidents can occur is the first step towards obtaining the money you need to recover from your accident. After a slip and fall accident, it is important to ask yourself the following questions:

  • Did my accident occur on another person’s property?
  • Was I invited to their property or was this a commercial property?
  • Did the landlord or business owner know of this defect?
  • Were their proper safety protocols in place to warn me of this danger, such as wet floor signs or out of order signs?
  • Was this accident my fault?

When you answer these questions, it is important to know that even if you think the accident may have been your fault, the property owner may still be to blame. An experienced Denver slip and fall attorney can review your accident and determine if you have cause to file a claim. In some situations, both you and the property owner may be to blame. If so, you may be able to obtain some, but not all, of the compensation you are entitled to.

Make no mistake; businesses often have large legal teams on their side to help them avoid liability. They may claim that the accident was entirely your fault or they may offer you a low-ball settlement that is only a fraction of what you will need to recover. Do not sign anything without first speaking to an experienced Denver slip and fall accident lawyer.
