Denver Premises Liability Lawyers
What are your rights if you have been injured on someone else’s property? In Colorado, you have the right to seek just compensation for your injury-related losses. While not all premises-related accidents will trigger claims for compensation, if you have a claim, asserting your legal rights could be critical to your long-term recovery.
Why File a Premises Liability Claim?
If you have suffered traumatic injuries in a premises-related accident, your injuries could impact virtually all aspects of your daily life. You may be in pain, you may be unable to work, and you may be unable to enjoy spending time with friends and family. As time goes on, these losses can continue to build, and the only way to recover the costs of someone else’s mistake is by filing a claim for just compensation with the help of a Denver premises liability attorney.
Property owners owe a duty of care to anyone on the premises, but the standard varies based on the situation. Visitors are segmented into three categories:
- Invitee: For people who have been invited on the property to transact business, the owner is expected to take reasonable steps to fix any hazards (i.e., a grocery store aisle spill or a cluttered stairwell) that the owner knows about or should know about through reasonable inspection.
- Licensee: For social and other types of guests, the owner is expected to take reasonable care to eliminate hazards that the person knows about and to warn about certain dangers that the owner did not create.
- Trespasser: For people who are on the property without the owner’s consent, the owner is liable only for injuries willfully caused by the owner.
Colorado operates under a modified comparative negligence system, meaning that a person who is partially to blame for an accident can still seek compensation as long as he or she is not deemed 50 percent or more responsible for the accident.
