Slip & Falls

In Colorado, slip and fall accidents, or trip and fall accidents, fall under the area of premises liability law. Premises liability law dictates where a property owner, manager, tenant, visitor, invitee, or trespasser is responsible for injuries that occur on the premises. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Daniel T. Goodwin have significant experience in premises liability law and slip and fall claims.

Slip and fall accidents can occur due to many reasons, including:

  • Unseen ice or snow
  • Water, spilled liquids, or other slippery material
  • Defects in walkways such as holes, cracks, or bumps
  • Inadequate lighting

Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere but commonly occur in restaurants, bars, stores, apartments, and hotels.

In slip and fall cases, there are very specific items that will dictate who is responsible for the injuries incurred under Colorado law. These questions include:

  1. What the unsafe condition was.
  2. Whether the owner or property manager knew or should have known of the unsafe condition.
  3. Whether the owner or property manager knew of the unsafe condition and failed to take action to correct the unsafe condition.
  4. The status of the person who was injured, i.e. a customer at a restaurant or shop, a social guest at a residence, or a trespasser.
