Premises Liability in Colorado
Guidance from a Proven Jefferson County Premise Liability Lawyer
Colorado's premises liability statute, C.R.S. §13-21-115, requires
that residential and commercial property owners provide "duty of
care" to all welcome visitors to their property. Simply put, that
means that they are required to provide reasonably safe conditions to
those on their property who are not trespassers. When they do not, and
someone is hurt, they can be held liable for damages.
If you or a loved one has been hurt due to unsafe conditions on someone
else's property, we invite you to contact us at

Types of Premises Liability Claims
Generally speaking, premises liability claims are associated with "slip
& fall" accidents. However, the truth is that nearly any circumstances
can be addressed with one of these suits, as long as negligence by property
owners directly contributed to an injury.
Typical premises liability claims include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Dog bites
- Swimming pool accidents
- Inadequate security
- Inadequate maintenance (elevators, escalators, etc.)
- Toxicity matters (lead paint, dangerous fumes, etc.)
In these cases, the burden is on the claimant to prove that they were owed
duty of care, that the property owner left dangerous conditions unaddressed,
and that those conditions led directly to the injury. Our Jefferson County
firm can help you establish these matters and ensure that, both in and
outside the courtroom, they will be compellingly put forth.
