What is Premises Liability?
Premises liability cases are “personal injuries” sustained on the property of another individual, business or government entity. A common example is a “Slip and Fall Accident” in a supermarket where a shopper slips on a wet floor, or obstacle that they did not see. Most premises liability cases involve individual property owners or business property owners who fail to properly maintain their property or fail to have policies or procedures to protect innocent victims when hazards arise.
Premises liability cases represents a significant percentage of all personal injury claims. Just as in any personal injury case, the determining factor in premises liability cases is negligence. If the negligence of a property owner caused your injury, Denver premises liability lawyer, Thomas R. Lefly, can represent you in a civil lawsuit or insurance claim to help you get medical treatment in the short term and financial compensation for current and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and maybe even punitive damages.
The moment you enter a public facility, a business, a private home, set foot on a local government sidewalk, or roadway, or any other place or space that is considered another party’s property, the individual owner or controlling party of that property is implicitly participating in an agreement to protect you. The controlling party of the real estate has an implied agreement with you, or you as a patron of a store or business, that the premises are maintained to be safe. This implied agreement is that all hazards should be repaired, removed or clearly pointed out by signage or barriers so you are not injured in an accident. If the property owner fails to maintain a safe and secure premise, and the owner’s negligent maintenance of those premises leads to an accident that adversely affects you, the property owner can be held liable for damages.
The concept of “Fault” – turns on a concept of negligence which basically comes down to the question of what a reasonable person would have done in the same situation.
Even when is truly an accident, if there was some dangerous condition on the property that the property owner knew, or should have known about, and failed to act responsibly, then the property owner may be at fault for it.
On the other hand – if someone simply wasn’t looking where they were going, or was just careless, then it might be their own fault that they fell.
Often the assistance of a premises liability lawyer is needed to interview witnesses, investigate the scene, and research how courts have ruled in similar situations in the past to help figure out who’s legally responsible.
Our advice to you? – Try to look at the situation as if you were an outsider watching a movie of it happening. Noticing as many details as possible could help prove your case, no matter what side you’re on if there is a lawsuit
Were You Injured on Another’s Property?
Property owners are required by law to keep their premises safe for visitors and passersby. Property owners have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for anyone on or in their premises. This includes sidewalks in commercial and residential neighborhoods. Sidewalks are often controlled and maintained by local government that has a premises liability responsibility to keep the sidewalks and roadways safe and free of hazards. If private property owners, businesses, or local government departments fail to keep their premises clear of dangers — or post warnings of hazardous conditions — and serious injuries result, they can be held liable for damages.
