Common Causes of Slip and Falls

Slip and fall accidents can happen at any place, at any time. In many cases, these accidents are completely preventable and only occur due to the failure of a property owner, business, or government agency to maintain safe premises and properly warn visitors of hazards. Some of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents include the following.

  • Defective sidewalks
  • Loose floorboards
  • Cluttered floors
  • Poorly constructed staircases
  • Torn carpeting
  • Unsalted icy surfaces
  • Improper safety training
  • Recently mopped, waxed, or polished floors
  • Spills that are not cleaned up
  • Unsafe ladders or stairs

Damages Available in a Slip and Fall Lawsuit

If you are injured in a slip and fall accident due to someone else’s actions, you may have grounds for a slip and fall lawsuit. Through this type of claim, you can recover compensation for the economic and non-economic damages you suffered due to the at-fault party’s negligence or recklessness, including the following.

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Property damage
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish and emotional distress
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of care, companionship, or consortium
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Depression and anxiety

To prove your right to this compensation, you will need to supply sufficient evidence that establishes the at-fault party’s negligence. Property owners have a duty to maintain safe premises, respond to potential hazards within a reasonable timeframe, and adequately warn visitors of these dangers. If the at-fault party breached his or her duty of care in any way and you sustained a slip and fall injury, you likely have grounds for a claim.

Colorado Statute of Limitations for Slip and Falls

All civil lawsuits in Colorado are subject to a rule known as the statute of limitations, which establishes a filing deadline for your claim. If you do not file within the applicable time period, the court will dismiss your lawsuit.

For slip and fall claims and other actions against landowners, you have two years from the date of your injury to file. To protect your right to compensation and identify your appropriate filing deadline, speak to a Boulder slip and fall attorney at Purvis Thomson, LLP as soon as possible following your accident.
