Common Premises Liability Injuries

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.

How to Prove a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Colorado

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 property owner owed you a duty of care. All property owners have a duty to keep their premises in safe condition, respond to hazards in a reasonable timeframe, and warn visitors of potential dangers.
  • The property owner breached his or her duty of care through a negligent act or omission. For example, if you request a landlord to fix a broken porch and he or she ignores the request for weeks, the landlord breaches his or her duty.
  • The property owner’s breach of duty caused your accident and resulting injuries. For example, if you fall through the porch that you had requested your landlord to fix and break your leg, his or her failure to act placed you in a dangerous situation. If he or she had responded to your request in a timely manner, the accident would not have happened.
  • You suffered damages as a result of the accident that you can collect in your lawsuit. Common damages in premises liability claims include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property repairs and replacements.

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.
