Premises Liability Accidents

Denver Premises Liability Attorneys | The Gold Law Firm

An accident can happen at any time and to anyone. Property owners and property managers have a legal responsibility to keep their properties safe. If they fail to do so and an injury occurs as a result, they may be held legally responsible. This is known as premises liability. Colorado has strict laws that serve to protect the injured party from such negligence. This statute is known as the Colorado Premise Liability statute, C.R.S. §13-21-115 and it helps to determine how responsible the property owner is for your injuries.

Classifying the Premises’ Visitors: Invitee, Licensee or Trespasser?

In order to determine legal responsibility under the premises liability law, it is necessary to determine if the victim was an “invitee”, a “licensee” or a “trespasser”. This classification is extremely important and helps determine how much responsibility rests on the property owner.

Invitee:
A person is classified as an invitee if they were either directly or indirectly invited to a property for commercial benefit. An example of this type would be a customer in a department store or a patron in a restaurant. Businesses have a duty to use reasonable care to prevent injuries from occurring and a responsibility to safeguard their establishment.

Licensee:
A person is classified as a licensee if he entered the property for his own benefit as a  house guest or a social guest. If the homeowner has direct knowledge of a dangerous situation in their home and they fail to warn the visitor, they may be held legally liable for injuries that occur on their property.

Trespasser:
A person is classified as a trespasser if he entered the property without the consent of the property owner. In this situation, the property owner may not be held liable for injuries that occurred on his property, as the victim was there illegally.

Types of Premises Liability Accidents:

In general, there are several common accidents that fall under premises liability laws:

  • Slip and Fall Accidents
  • Swimming Pool related accidents
  • Elevator or Escalator accidents
  • Construction site accidents
  • Playground accidents
  • Daycare or School related accidents
  • Amusement park accidents
  • House guest accidents

What to Do if You are Injured on Another Person’s Property?

If you are injured on another person’s property, you should notify the authorities and seek medical attention immediately. Injuries to the back and spine often go unnoticed after a slip and fall accident and can lead to years of chronic back pain and disabilities. If your accident was caused by another person’s negligence, take a picture of the accident scene, including any dangerous conditions that may have contributed to your accident.

The Gold Law Firm and Greg took on my unique case when no one else would. They were amazing through the whole process. Making sure we clearly understood everything. Always taking extra time to answer all our questions. In the end we got justice! I just learned that now they have a special victims unit, and it warms my heart to know that someone is there for those unique victims.

Janet Christensen -

Client

This is a top-notch law firm who puts their client first. Colleen Parsley walked me through all the steps of my lawsuit. She is the best lawyer you can partner with. Mike Rosenberg was the insurance specialist and has outstanding expertise. Between the two of them we were able to settle my claim with two different insurance companies who had no intention of settling with me directly. I received a recommendation to contact the Gold Law Firm after a year of providing evidence and expecting coverage of my home damage after a water heater failure. I finally realized my only option was to hire a lawyer. I am very grateful that I found the best!
