Premises Liability Claim Lawyers
A premises liability claim centers on the expectation that property owners keep their premises reasonably safe for visitors. It is every owner’s legal duty to maintain a safe property for his or her guests. Failure to do so may qualify as negligence and give grounds to a personal injury claim – if it results in visitor injury or property damage. If you or someone you love has suffered an injury while on someone else’s property in Denver, contact our attorneys.

Why Do You Need a Lawyer?

Your lawyer can handle everything for you, while you focus on recovering from your injuries.
What Is Premises Liability?
Premises liability refers to a property owner’s responsibility for what happens on his or her premises. Although an owner won’t be liable for every accident, he or she may have to pay damages if a court believes the owner could have done something differently to prevent the accident. The following are examples of situations that often lead to premises liability claims:
- Slip/trip and fall accidents
- Dog bites
- Escalator or elevator accidents
- Staircase accidents
- Exposure to hazardous substances
- Fires and floods
- Parking lot accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Amusement park injuries
- Negligent security/criminal activity
Understanding your rights as an injured visitor will likely require assistance from an attorney. The lawyers at Varner Faddis Elite Legal, LLC can investigate your accident and help you find out whether you have the elements of a premises liability claim in Denver, CO. If we can prove the property owner breached a duty of care he/she owed you and this breach caused your injuries, you could be eligible for compensation.
The most common liable party in premises liability claims is the property owner. However, other parties could share liability if your incident involved the negligence of someone other than the landowner. For example, if you suffered an injury because a hammer fell on you while walking through a construction zone, you may have a claim against the construction company and site manager, not just the property owner. Determining liability generally requires an investigation into the accident in question, as well as the collection of evidence, and a firm understanding of premises accident laws.
