Winter in Colorado means snow and ice.  For many parts of the state, winter snow is a welcomed sight for cold weather sports and tourism.  But it also means that slip and falls are more likely to occur.  When someone slips on an icy sidewalk or falls because of snow melt that was tracked in, they  could suffer serious or catastrophic personal injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones. This is a type of premises liability case that may allow someone to recover compensation for personal injuries such as pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, and other damages. It is important to note, however, that not all slip and fall accidents result in liability. As a result if you were in a slip and fall accident involving snow or ice in Colorado Springs, you should seek the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney.

Liability of Property Owners in Ice or Snow Falling Accidents

 Individuals who slipped and fell on tracked in snow may be able to recover compensation if they can establish that a defendant landowner, possessor, maintainer, or other person or business in control failed to keep their premises reasonably safe under the circumstances.  State law requires business owners to maintain their premises free of defects, dangerous conditions, hazardous conditions, or other potentially harmful situations for foreseeable guests.

Tracked in snow or icy sidewalks present a dangerous condition that landowners and business owners have a legal obligation to make safe. Therefore, individuals who slip and fall on melted snow or ice may be entitled to compensation for the negligence of a landowner or business owner if they failed to fulfill this legal obligation. Tracked in snow that melts is dangerous for several reasons, including:

  • Tracked in snow is usually at the entrance or exit of a store, which means this is a point that customers will most likely be near
  • Tracked in snow that melts can melt clear and become more difficult for a person to see and therefore slip on
  • Tracked in snow that melts could be slippery on certain surfaces such as linoleum or painted wood, both which are common floor surfaces
  • Tracked in snow could cause a person to slip and fall near shelving units or other furniture that could cause head injuries

Therefore, customers or guests to stores, businesses, houses, apartments, and other properties are entitled to a premises which is reasonably maintained free of dangerous conditions.  Slippery and hard-to-see melted snow is a dangerous defect which could result in serious injury for an individual who has rights under state law to compensation.

“Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.”

I was uneasy about reaching out to a law firm after being in an accident that left me injured and my vehicle totaled. I don’t care for the idea of suing for what was very clearly an accident. However, after learning more about the overall process of working with a professional team to navigate the murky waters of the insurance world, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the experience wasn’t as gross as I’d originally felt about it. Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.
