Property owners are generally responsible for maintaining reasonably safe conditions on their premises to prevent others from injuries and other harm. This concept of premises liability applies in many different settings, including private homes, retail stores, hotels, restaurants, and more.

Claims of premises liability may result from injuries involving a slip and fall, dog bites, exposure to toxic materials, as well as other hazardous property conditions. A property owner may be legally responsible for financially compensating those injured while visiting their premises. After seeking medical attention, individuals should consult with a Fort Carson premises liability lawyer to evaluate their incident. Our dedicated team of personal injury attorneys could help you take legal action if you suffered losses because a property owner failed to maintain a safe premises.

Colorado’s Premises Liability Statute (CPLA)

Colorado Revised Statute §13-21-115 is meant to protect the injured, promote overall responsibility among property owners, and to control the cost and availability of insurance.

This law also clarifies the definition of a land or property owner. It states that a landowner is the party that exercises control over the premises and has responsibility for its conditions or activity. Additionally, this person could either possess the property or act as an “authorized agent.”

What are the Classifications of Property Entrants in Fort Carson?

When determining whether a property owner is liable for an individual’s injuries, it is first necessary to decide on this person’s classification or relationship to the owner as either an invitee, licensee, or trespasser. An experienced Fort Carson lawyer could assess a premises liability case and determine if an individual may be eligible to receive compensation based on their status as a visitor.

Invitees

An invitee is an individual that enters a property to conduct business that is of mutual interest to both parties. The owner is aware of or expects that an invitee will enter their premises. Some common examples of invitees include employees or customers.

Licensees

A licensee is an individual that enters the property to further their interests. The property owner has permitted this individual’s entrance. Some common examples of these people may include social guests and volunteers.

Trespassers

A trespasser enters the property without the permission of the owner.  Trespassers cannot pursue compensation for injuries incurred unless that landowner had deliberately contributed to their injury.

What Legal Responsibilities Do Landowners Have?

All property owners have a legal duty to maintain their premises and to monitor for any potential hazards that may arise on their property. If a proprietor does find a dangerous condition on their property, they also have an obligation to either fix this hazard or warn their visitors of its existence. However, there is a subtle distinction between the landowner’s duty as it relates to invitees and licensees.

  • A licensee may recover for injuries caused by conditions that the property owner had created and knew existed
  • A licensee may recover for damages from an unusual circumstance that the property owner did not create and knew existed
  • An invitee may recover for injuries caused by a dangerous condition that the owner was aware existed or should have been aware of

One of our knowledgeable attorneys in Fort Carson understands these legal nuances in premises liability cases and could determine if a property owner failed to meet their legal obligations.

“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.
