Boulder property owners have a duty to ensure that their premises are safe. Unfortunately, not all owners do so, putting visitors, customers, and clients at risk. If you were injured on someone else’s property, you need an attorney on your side—and the Boulder premises liability attorneys at Purvis Thomson, LLP can help you recover the compensation you deserve.
A premises liability claim refers to an accident that occurs due to a hazard on someone else’s property. The property owner may fail to properly maintain the premises, leave slip and fall risks lying around the grounds, or fail to provide adequate security for his or her property. In some cases, uncontrolled dogs or obstructions may also contribute to an injury.
An unsafe condition on someone else’s land can lead to a serious accident, physical harm, and emotional trauma. Some of the most common premises liability injuries include the following.
Victims of unsafe property conditions have the right to hold the owner accountable for their damages. If you were injured on someone else’s premises, you could file an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit against him or her. During an insurance claim, an insurance adjuster will investigate the accident and determine whether or not the policyholder is at fault.
During the lawsuit process, you will need to provide sufficient evidence that establishes the following four elements.
The owner may defend him or herself by stating you were trespassing, that he or she did not have enough time to respond to the hazard, or that you caused the accident. A Boulder premises liability attorney can defend you against these accusations and prove your right to compensation.
