Slip and Fall Injury Information
Colorado Attorney R. Brian Daniel

Incidents underlying a Premises Liability Claim occur frequently. Slipping on the wet floor of a grocery store, falling off of a broken balcony and being hit in the head by improperly positioned merchandise that falls of a shelf at a store are all examples of accidents that can result in serious injuries. These are all examples of accidents that give rise to a claim for Premises Liability. Under Colorado law, a property owner or business owner is legally responsible for the safety of their property and the individuals on that property.  When an accident occurs and injuries are sustained on their property (as a result of poor maintenance or negligence), property owners may be held liable for the injuries and for any damages that have occurred as the result of the accident.

Premises Liability Claims – Trespasser, Licensee or Invitee

Your ability to receive compensation for your injuries depends largely on how you are categorized pursuant to Colorado law.  Here, as in most other states, whether you were on someone’s property at their invitation, or to buy something, or even without permission, will have an effect on the type of claim you may have against the property owner.  These three categories of “visitors” are characterized as follows:

  • Trespasser - Any person who enters another person’s property without the owner’s consent will be classified as a trespasser. With certain exceptions, a property owner is not typically liable for injuries that occur to trespassers.  If, however, the property owner deliberately caused the injury, the trespasser may still be able make a claim for damages and injuries.
  • Licensee - Any person who enters another person's property for his own interests is considered a licensee - (these include house guests, party guests and friends).  A property owner may be liable for injuries to licensees.
  • Invitee - Any person who enters another person's property for commercial benefit is considered an invitee - (these include customers, patients and clients).  A property owner owes the highest duty of care to an invitee and will typically be held liable for their injuries.

The ultimate characterization of a person that has been injured may take some time and effort to establish; therefore, it is important to consult with a Parker, Colorado Premises Liability Attorney in order to determine your rights and your ability to recover damages for your injuries.

Slip and Fall Accidents - Proving Fault

In Colorado the burden of proof in a slip and fall case lies with the person who slipped and fell.  The person who slipped and fell must prove that their injuries resulted directly from the property owner's negligence and that the property owner knew or should have known about an existing danger, yet failed to make necessary corrections to remedy the danger. After your Parker, Colorado Slip and Fall Personal Injury attorney has reviewed your case, establishment of the property owner's negligence is necessary in order to win your case. To establish negligence, your Parker, Colorado Personal Injury Attorney may need to interview witnesses, employees, past customers, guests, family members and/or friends in an attempt to prove negligence.  If the property owner is found to have been negligent, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and for any damages that have occurred.

If you or someone you love was injured in a slip and fall accident, it is important to contact a Parker, Colorado Slip and Fall Personal Injury Attorney immediately.  Your attorney will be able to discuss all of your legal options with you and help you recover compensation to which you are entitled after a slip and fall accident.
