Most property injuries occur as a result of an unsafe condition. Whether because a dangerous condition was not corrected, or because a property owner, manager or tenant failed to warn guests, those injured on someone else’s property are typically entitled to be appropriately compensated.
Such personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits are pursued under the laws of premises liability in Colorado. At-fault parties may include tenants, property owners, property maintenance managers, property managers or other liable third parties, such as an at-fault driver.
Consultation with an experienced property injury lawyer in Denver is best done as soon as possible after an accident because property owners or managers will likely quickly correct the dangerous or hazardous conditions that resulted in an injury accident.
