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.
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 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.
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.
