Each year, thousands of people in the United States suffer serious injuries on someone's property.  Landowners are responsible for managing safe conditions on the property they own. These types of accidents can occur inside or outside, at a residence, place of public gathering or a place of business.

In Colorado, virtually all injuries that occur on the property of another person or company fall under the Colorado Premises Liability Act.  This law provides for legal liability of the landowner or entity in control of the property for hazardous conditions that exist on the property that may cause injury to people that come onto the property.  

 

Whether a slip-and-fall or tripping hazard injury, or an injury caused by the negligence of the landowner or business operator, these injuries can be very difficult to pursue given the complex legal issues involved in claims under the Colorado Premises Liability Act.  Irwin Fraley, PLLC has extensive experience in premises liability claims throughout Colorado.

A recent study of premise security liability in the United States showed that residential apartment building owners and hotel/motel owners make up the majority of lawsuits while the remaining 44% are retail owners, restaurants and bars.

 

The liability of owners and occupiers of property will vary depending on the legal rules and principles in place in the state where the slip and fall injury occurred. There are three different types of legal status of visitor such as invitee, licensee, trespasser or social guest.
