Denver Premises Liability Attorneys

Premises Liability Attorney Denver

When might you need an attorney involving premises liability? This will help explain; premises liability cases involve situations in which someone is injured due to negligence or inaction of a property owner or operator. Property owners are required by law to provide a safe environment for visitors. If you have been injured on someone else’s property because of their negligence, do not wait to call Burg Simpson’s Denver personal injury lawyers at 303-792-5595.

Incidents you may need an expert premises liability attorney include:

  • Animal Bites
  • Slip-and-Fall Accidents
  • Negligent or Inadequate Security
  • Swimming Pool Injuries
  • Poor Maintenance
  • Retail Store Liability
  • Restaurant Liability

While states vary on the types and degrees of liability, the status of the victim can be a factor. There are three classifications of property visitors: the invitee, the licensee, and the trespasser.

  • Invitees have an implied or expressed offer to enter and/or stay on your property. These are typically public or business guests.
  • Licensees also have an implied or expressed offer to enter and/or stay on your property, but these are typically social guests.
  • Trespassers, obviously, have no invitation to be on your property.

In premises liability cases, it is especially important to act quickly. Your case may depend on the preservation of evidence documenting the state of the property at the time of your injury and on eyewitness accounts of the accident. When you or a loved one has been hurt on someone’s property – whether it is a home or a business – a premises liability attorney can help you receive the compensation you deserve.

To establish premises liability, there are a few criteria that must be met:

  • The defendant must own the property.
  • The plaintiff must be an invitee or a licensee. While trespassers did not use to enjoy any safeguards, the law has gradually granted them more and more protections since the late 1960s.
  • Finally, there must be actual negligence—a breach of the duty of care—or a more overt wrongful act, such as an assault.

If someone you care about is injured on someone else’s property, you may be eligible for compensation. Call one of our Denver personal injury lawyers as soon as possible at 303-792-5595 to discuss your case for free.

Slips, trips, and falls are by far the most prevalent of premises liability injuries. While property owners are not necessarily responsible for every slip and fall on their property, if unsafe and preventable conditions led to the injury, then the owner may be at fault. However, if the victim was impaired or behaving recklessly, he or she may be responsible for any injuries sustained and not the property owner. They also may not be responsible if they had no notice of the unsafe or dangerous condition on their property.

Some examples of property owner negligence can include:

  • Poor lighting
  • Slippery surfaces, including stairs
  • Unmarked steps
  • Obstructions
  • Loose tiles or ripped carpeting

Nevertheless, these lawsuits can be very difficult to win. If you have been hurt because you slipped and fell on someone’s property, call us as soon as possible so we can preserve the evidence, assemble eyewitness accounts, and establish the facts in your case early. The longer you wait, the less successful your case may be. Contact one of our Denver personal injury attorneys immediately at 303-792-5595.

Negligent security is another type of premises liability. These claims occur when a legitimate resident or visitor to a property is injured as a result of the property owner’s failure to maintain adequate security on the property. Negligent security cases often involve physical or sexual assault and the damages can be quite extensive. Most negligent security case involves residential buildings, such as:

• College dormitories
• Apartment buildings
• Hotels and motels

Negligent security cases can arise out of inadequate lighting or security in office buildings as well as business and residential parking lots. If the inadequate lighting or security created an unsafe condition and you were assaulted as a result, you may have a legitimate negligent security claim against the property owner in a third-party action.

Tenants and visitors have the right to reasonably expect a safe environment. Such expectations can include:

  • Locked buildings
  • Adequate lighting
  • Security personnel on staff and monitoring the premises
  • Secure, staffed lobbies
  • Sufficiently maintained security equipment
