Helping Our Clients Fight for Their Right to Fair Compensation

Property owners, managers, and occupants owe their guests and patrons a duty of care to ensure they are safe while on their property. If a person who is legally inhabiting or visiting the property is injured, the property owner can be held liable for their injuries and damages.

The sooner you contact our firm, the sooner we can get to work on your case.

Plaintiff Status Under Colorado’s Premises Liability Act

Colorado Rev. Stat. § 13-21-115: Actions Against Landowners, commonly known as Colorado’s Premises Liability Act, outlines what happens when a person is injured on someone else’s property. Under this law, plaintiffs are considered:

  • trespassers, those who enter or remain on someone else's property without the owner’s consent,
  • licensees, those who enter or remain on someone’s property for their convenience, to advance their personal interests, or at the property owner’s request, or
  • invitees, those who enter or remain on someone else's property because of the landowner’s express or implied invitation or request or in order to complete a business transaction that both parties are interested in and consent to.

Trespassers cannot hold property owners liable for their injuries unless they are children. Because of the Supreme Court ruling in the S.W. vs. Towers Boat Club, Inc., children considered trespassers can file a premises liability claim just like children who are invitees or licensees.

Common Types of Premises Liability Claims

You can suffer injuries and damages in a premises liability accident involving:

  • Amusement Park accidents
  • Dog bite claims
  • Elevator and escalator accidents
  • Falling object incidents
  • Fires, toxic fumes, or chemical accidents
  • Negligent security claims
  • Slips (or trips) and falls
  • Snow and ice accidents
  • Stair or ceiling collapse accidents
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Water leaks or flood accidents
