Denver Premises Liability Lawyers for Stairway Accidents
Our firm provides experienced legal representation for individuals who have suffered traumatic injuries in stairway accidents. If you fell down the stairs while shopping, at work, at the hospital, in an office building or entertainment venue, at a neighbor’s house, or at any other location other than your own home, the owner of the property may be legally responsible for your losses, and this could mean that you are entitled to a significant financial recovery.
Understanding Your Stairway Accident Claim
1. Colorado’s Law of Premises Liability
Under Colorado’s premises liability law, property owners are required to remedy known hazards that have the potential to cause serious physical injuries. If you fell because of a repair or maintenance issue that should have been addressed, you may be entitled to just compensation.
2. Evidence to Prove Your Claim
In order to prove your claim, you will need evidence to establish the property owner’s liability. If you took photos or if anyone witnesses saw what happened, these can both be key evidence in support of your claim for compensation. Additionally, when you hire our firm to represent you, our attorneys will conduct an exhaustive investigation in order to collect any additional evidence that can help prove your claim.
3. The Importance of Your Medical Records
If you have not done so already, you should see a doctor as soon as possible. Our personal injury team members can refer you to a physician who has treated our clients for years. Your medical records will be critical evidence in your case, and you need them to show that your injuries are the result of your stairway accident.
4. Calculating Your Future Losses
Your outstanding medical bills and lost wages are just two components of your claim for compensation. You are also entitled to compensation for your future losses, and these losses are often far greater than those incurred in the immediate aftermath of a traumatic accident. Future losses that can be recovered in a slip and fall accident case include:
- Medical expenses
- Prescription costs and other out-of-pocket expenses
- Loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Loss of enjoyment of life
5. Negotiating a Settlement or Seeking Justice at Trial
Most premises liability claims are resolved through out-of-court settlements with the property owner’s insurance company. As your attorneys, we will seek to negotiate a maximum settlement as quickly as possible. However, while we are negotiating, we will also be preparing your case for trial. We have secured numerous six-figure and seven-figure verdicts for our clients, and we want the insurance company to know that we are fully prepared to take your case to court.
