Understanding Premises Liability Claims

Every private property owner in the Longmont area must understand the state’s premises liability laws and the responsibility they have to prevent injuries to any lawful guests to their properties. Under the premises liability laws of Colorado, a property owner must maintain reasonably safe premises and address any foreseeable safety issues they identify on their property. If the property owner sees any hazard that could foreseeably injure a lawful visitor, they must correct it immediately, post a visible warning sign that indicates the hazard, or provide clear verbal warnings to lawful visitors if they are likely to encounter the hazard while visiting the property. It is important to remember that the premises liability laws of the state do not apply to trespassers or unlawful intruders.

If your slip and fall occurred because a property owner failed to meet their duty of care, you have the right to file a civil suit against them and claim compensation for the losses you suffered in your slip and fall accident. These may include immediate and future medical expenses for treatment of your injuries as well as repayment of income you are unable to earn because of your injury. Additionally, you may also claim compensation for the pain and suffering you experienced, but this element of your case award is limited under state law.

Fall Injuries FAQs

Q: How Long Do You Have to File a Slip and Fall Injury Claim?

A: There is a two-year statute of limitations on all personal injury cases in the state, including premises liability claims for slip and fall injuries. You must file your civil claim within two years of the date your injury occurred; otherwise, you lose your chance to recover compensation from the property owner responsible for your injury. Filing your case as soon as possible after your accident significantly increases your chance of success with the case.

Q: What Damages Can I Claim in a Slip and Fall Injury Case?

A: If you are able to prove that a property owner is liable for your recent slip and fall injury, state law enables you to seek full compensation for any economic damages you suffered in the incident. You can also seek compensation for your pain and suffering, but this is limited under the state’s personal injury statutes. Working with an experienced Longmont slip and fall accident attorney can significantly increase your chances of maximizing your total case award.

Q: What Qualifies as a Catastrophic Personal Injury?

A: Most victims of personal injuries are able to eventually recover. However, a catastrophic personal injury is any injury resulting in permanent disability for the victim. Traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and injuries to internal organs are a few examples of injuries that may potentially qualify as catastrophic. If you believe you suffered any permanent damage from a recent slip and fall accident, it is crucial that you secure legal counsel from a reliable and experienced attorney as soon as possible to have the greatest chance of success with your recovery efforts.

Q: Do I Need to Hire an Attorney for a Slip and Fall Accident Injury Claim?

A: Technically, no, you have the right to try to handle your case alone. However, this would be incredibly difficult if you suffered serious injuries as you would be forced to contend with your recovery while also meeting court filing deadlines and other procedural demands of your case. Hiring an experienced Longmont slip and fall injury attorney significantly improves your chances of success with your case, and your attorney can also greatly increase the total compensation you win from the defendant.

Q: What Are Attorneys’ Fees for a Longmont Slip and Fall Accident Attorney?

A: When you hire the Law Firm of Jeremy Rosenthal as your legal counsel for a slip and fall injury claim, you will only owe an attorney’s fee if and when we win compensation on your behalf. Our contingency fee policy means that you only owe us a fee after we secure compensation on your behalf, and you pay nothing if we are unable to secure recompense for your damages. When you do pay the contingency fee, it is only a portion of the case award we secure from the defendant, and you keep the rest.
