If you have suffered injuries from a slip and fall on someone else’s property, you may have a slip and fall case. In the state of Colorado, home and business owners alike must keep their property reasonably safe. If they fail to do so, they could be responsible for any injuries that occur as a result.
If you have been injured on someone else’s property, attorney Christopher Jeffress will help you seek compensation for any medical bills, lost wages, or suffering caused by your fall.
There are several property conditions that can lead to a premises liability lawsuit, including:
- Wet or slippery floors
- Uneven flooring
- Loose steps
- Snow or ice
- Stairways without railings
- Trash and debris
- Cracked concrete
If a property owner knows that these conditions exist, they must fix them immediately or post a warning. For example, if you are walking in a grocery store aisle with a freshly mopped floor, the grocery store must set out caution cones or signage to warn shoppers of the dangerous condition. These warnings must be posted in a timely manner.
Keep in mind that property owners are only required to keep their property reasonably safe. For example, if a snowstorm covers the sidewalk of a home, the homeowner must clear snow and ice from the sidewalk. However, they are not required to make the sidewalk dry.
In general, any slip and fall accident that is a result of poorly maintained grounds with no posted warning is the fault of the property owner, but there are a few exceptions. If the dangerous conditions of the property are obvious or if you are trespassing, the property owner may not be liable.
