Slip or trip and falls are also known as Premises Liability cases
In Colorado, if you are injured on someone’s property through some type of hazard, the Colorado Premises Liability law applies. Property owners are responsible for keeping sidewalks, driveways and all other walkways safe for visitors. If they do not do their due diligence, they can be held responsible for injuries suffered in slip-and-falls. In order to win your case, you have to show that you were legally on the property and that there was a dangerous condition on the property that the landowner knew or should have known about. These cases are complex and need to be addressed immediately. Property owners may work quickly to cover up or correct anything that may prove that they are responsible for your accident.
These accidents are no joke. A back injury can be a lifetime problem. Multiple fractures can keep you out of work for a long time. Hip injuries can land you in the hospital. There are numerous issues that can arise, all because of someone else’s negligence.
