Slip and Fall Accidents Lawyer

Slip-and-fall injuries are among the most common type of property injuries, and commonly result in broken bones, joint injuries and head injuries.  

Legally, such claims fall under Colorado premises liability law. Property owners, managers and tenants owe a duty of care to invited guests to avoid the risk of preventable injuries. When a guest is injured, he or she may pursue a claim against one or more of those liable for a property’s upkeep and maintenance.  

Slip And Fall Accident Attorney in Denver

Early consultation with a Denver personal injury attorney is critical in these cases. Obtaining available surveillance video and otherwise documenting a dangerous condition is best done in the immediate aftermath of an injury accident, as those responsible typically make quick repairs to correct a dangerous condition or other factors that caused or contributed to a property injury.  

Colorado Slip-and-Fall Claims 

Colorado premises liability law is found under Section 13-21-115 and imposes duties on property owners, managers or tenants based on the visitor’s status as an invitee, licensee or trespasser.  

  • Invitee: Under the law, an invitee is on a property to conduct business, and is therefore owed the highest duty of care because of a landowner or tenant’s express or implied representation that the public is requested or expected to enter the premises to conduct business. Customers visiting business properties are invitees under the law. Those injured are entitled to collect damages if a danger or hazard exists that an owner, tenant or manager knew about or should have known about through reasonable diligence.  
  • Licensee: A licensee is on a property for his or her own convenience or to advance his or her own interest. A visitor on private property  is considered a licensee under the law. A licensee is entitled to collect damages for injuries caused by dangerous or hazardous conditions when an owner failed to use reasonable care concerning dangers he or she knew about, or failed to warn of dangers he or she did not create and are not ordinarily present on the property.  
  • Trespassers: A trespasser is on a property without the consent of the landowner and is therefore owed the lowest duty of care under the law. A landowner is only responsible for injuries to a trespasser if deliberately or willfully caused by the landowner. However, an exception exists under the Attractive Nuisance Doctrine, which could hold landowners responsible if small children are enticed onto a property and injured by dangerous conditions that could be reasonably expected to act as an enticement, such as junk piles, old cars or unguarded swimming pools.  

Slip and Fall Injuries in Denver 

Slip-and-fall accidents can occur to anyone, but are particularly dangerous for the elderly. Broken joints and bones are often slower to heal, and the fear of falling may negatively impact an older person’s mental health and quality of life. Consequently, businesses that routinely cater to older customers must take special care in keeping their properties free of avoidable hazards.  

Common causes of slip-and-fall injuries include:  

  • Parking lot accidents.  
  • Stairwell injuries. 
  • Poor lighting. 
  • Ice and snow. 
  • Wet or slippery floors. 
  • Trip hazards.  
  • Obstructions in the aisle.
