When you enter another person’s property, there are certain legal expectations placed on the owner to make the premises safe for visitors. Lack of awareness, poor management, and general property neglect may create potential hazards that may make the premises unsafe for visitors.

If you suffered bodily harm as a result of dangerous conditions on another’s property, a Pueblo premises liability lawyer could help you file a claim for damages. An experienced personal injury attorney could help you navigate the legal complexities of property liability claims and pursue compensation for your injuries.

Negligence in Premises Liability Law

A person or entity acts negligently when they fail to exercise reasonable care toward another person, causing them harm. The at-fault person or entity may then be responsible for resulting damages such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of income, and more.

How Does the Level of Duty of Care Change?

In property liability cases, the duty of care determines the level of responsibility between the landowner and the injured visitor, and therefore, if the proprietor is responsible for any resulting injuries. State law does this by categorizing visitors into different groups depending on their purpose for entering the property.

Invitees are typically customers of a business or a place intended for and used by the public. Licensees are guests of the property, allowed to be on the premises at the owner’s invitation. Proprietors have a legal obligation to these individuals to keep their property free from hazards and to warn them of any potentially dangerous conditions.

Trespassers do not have permission to be on someone’s property. Therefore, property owners do not owe a legal duty of care to these individuals and cannot be liable for any injuries they suffer while on their premises. A Pueblo premises liability attorney could explain the nuances of these categories and how they may impact the outcome of a case.

Types of Property Accidents

Various conditions on a property can result in severe bodily harm to visitors. Some examples of hazardous conditions that may result in viable premises liability claims include:

  • Nails or sharp protruding objects
  • Animal attacks
  • Tripping accidents
  • Broken or unlit stairwells
  • Inadequate security
  • Falling from a balcony or height
  • Drowning
  • Slippery floors or walkways

What is the Timeframe to File a Premises Liability Lawsuit?

The Colorado Revised Statute §13-80-102 states that plaintiffs have two years from the date of their injury to file a lawsuit for damages. Failure to file a lawsuit in time means that the injured person may not be able to seek compensation from the negligent party. A Pueblo lawyer could help a claimant file their premises liability case before the statutory deadline expires.

“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.
