Denver Premises Liability Lawyers for Slips, Trips and Falls
While we don’t often think of sidewalks as being dangerous places, if you have been injured in a sidewalk accident, you know that the risk of injury is very real. Slips, trips and falls can cause serious injuries, and they can result from a wide variety of factors that are within property owners’ control. As a result, property owners will often be liable for accident victims’ injuries, including all forms of physical, financial and emotional harm.
At Levine Law, we provide experienced and compassionate legal representation for victims of sidewalk accidents in the Denver area. We are familiar with the unique legal issues involved in these types of claims, and we have a proven record of success in insurance settlements and litigation. If you have been injured and would like to speak with an attorney, we encourage you to contact us for a free consultation. We can help you understand your rights; and, if you have a claim for compensation, we will use our experience to help you win the compensation you deserve.
Common Sidewalk Defects and Maintenance Issues
There are a number of issues that can lead unsuspecting walkers, runners and cyclists to suffer serious injuries in a sidewalk accident. Some of the most common factors we see in these types of accidents include:
- Building or safety code violations
- Cracks, holes and missing sections of sidewalk
- Defective patches or repairs
- Faulty construction
- Inadequate warning signs and unmarked curbs
- Protruding pipes or hardware
- Protruding tree roots
- Rainwater accumulation
- Snow and ice accumulation
- Uneven sidewalk sections or slabs
Depending on where your accident occurred, a private property owner (such as a homeowner or business) could be liable, or the City of Denver could potentially be to blame. If the sidewalk was not properly constructed, the construction company or a subcontractor could also bear responsibility for your injury-related losses. We have the experience needed to identify the responsible party (or parties) and hold them accountable for just compensation.
Do I Need a Lawyer?
After an accident, it is important not to downplay what happened. While you may wish that you could simply move on with your life, the reality is that you could be facing significant financial and non-financial losses as a result of your injuries. Without experienced legal representation, you will not know what your case is worth, and you simply will not have a chance at winning your case.
But, we understand that you have questions, and that is why we offer free initial consultations. We welcome the opportunity to speak with you, and we are happy to help you decide if you want to assert your legal rights. It costs you nothing to find out if you have a case, so contact us to schedule your free consultation today.
