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.

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.
