Premises Liability Overview

Colorado Premises Liability Attorney

Slip and fall injuries can occur to anyone – at anytime. These injuries (also known as premises liability injuries) can occur in department stores, restaurants, public centers and shopping malls and can lead to serious and sometimes debilitating injuries. If a property owner failed to keep their property or place of business safe, they may be held liable for injuries that resulted from their negligence. Proving liability can be difficult. Therefore, an experienced Colorado personal injury lawyer with an extensive knowledge of Colorado’s premises liability laws is crucial to winning your case and receiving the maximum compensation for your injuries. Under Colorado’s premises liability law, a property owner or possessor has a duty to protect the public from any dangerous or hazardous conditions on their property. These include broken sidewalks, unsafe staircase railings, wet or slick flooring and more. The degree to which the property owner is responsible depends on how you are classified under Colorado law.
  • Trespasser: This is a person who is present on the property without the property owner’s knowledge or consent. In these cases, the property owner is rarely found liable for injuries.
  • Licensee: Someone who is present on the property for their own interests – this includes social guests. Under this classification, the property owner may be held liable for injuries caused by hazardous conditions on their property.
  • Invitee: Under Colorado law, the property owner has the highest duty of care to an invitee and must exercise extreme caution when protecting against dangerous conditions. A person who is on the property strictly by invitation and commercial benefit to the property owner is classified as an invitee.
