How a Denver Premises Liability Lawyer Can Help 

A premises liability lawyer in Denver can assist you with the complicated legal side of your claim, such as gathering evidence of negligence or fault. When you file a premises liability claim, you are given the burden of proof. This means your attorney must establish that the property owner is at fault for your injury with at least a 51 percent certainty. Hiring a lawyer allows you to rest and focus on healing from your injury while an experienced professional handles claims filing, evidence collection, expert witnesses and settlement negotiations.

What Types of Compensation Are Available?

At Manning Law, we know that no dollar amount can reverse your injuries or give you back the life you had before your accident. However, we hope that achieving a fair settlement can help your family move forward from a premises liability accident with greater peace of mind. Our attorneys aim to hold wrongdoers accountable for the full extent of losses suffered by our clients.

You may be entitled to recover the following types of damages, or financial compensation:

  • Costs of necessary medical care, such as surgeries, hospital stays, rehabilitation, physical therapy and prescription medications.
  • Disfigurement or disability, including physical impairment, debilitation, visible scars, paralysis, brain damage or other catastrophic injuries that come with lifelong consequences.
  • Losses of income, including wages missed while recovering from your injury and lost capacity to earn in the future due to a permanent disability.
  • Pain and suffering, which can include physical pain, emotional distress, mental hardship, psychological harm, loss of enjoyment of life and loss of consortium.
  • Wrongful death damages in the event of a fatal accident, such as the price of a funeral and burial and lost income the deceased person would have provided in the future.

Property owners in Colorado are required to carry certain amounts of insurance. In your premises liability case, there may be a homeowners, renters or commercial property insurance policy available to pay for your losses. If the insurance policy is not sufficient to meet your needs, our lawyers can help you file a civil lawsuit.

Understanding Colorado’s Premises Liability Laws 

The Colorado Premises Liability Act (Colorado Revised Statutes Section 13-21-115) states that landowners are responsible for the safety of their properties. If an injury occurs while on the real property of another person due to the condition of such property, the landowner can be held liable – meaning legally and financially responsible. Colorado law describes landowner liability for three types of properties visitors:

  1. Trespasser: a person who does not have the landowner’s permission to enter or remain on a property. A trespasser may only recover damages that are willfully or deliberately caused by the landowner. There are exceptions, however, for trespassers under the age of 18.
  2. Licensee: a person who lawfully enters a property for social purposes or reasons unrelated to a business. A licensee may recover damages caused by the landowner’s unreasonable failure to exercise care with respect to dangers or defects that the landowner knew about or the landowner’s unreasonable failure to warn of unusual dangers.
  3. Invitee: a person who enters a property with the owner’s express or implied invitation, such as a customer at a business. An invitee may recover damages caused by the landowner’s unreasonable failure to remedy known defects or hazards, warn of unusual dangers, or inspect a property for unknown risks.

If your injury in Denver stemmed from a landowner’s poor property maintenance or failure to repair a known property defect, you may be eligible for financial compensation. This includes injuries that occur on both private and public property. You may need an experienced premises liability attorney in Denver to investigate your accident to determine if you have grounds for a premises liability claim.

What Is the Statute of Limitations on a Premises Liability Case in Denver?

Do not wait to contact an attorney about a potential case, as you could miss the state’s statute of limitations, or time limit for filing a lawsuit. The law imposes a strict deadline of two years, in most cases. According to Colo. Rev. Stat. § 13-80-102: “(1) The following civil actions, regardless of the theory upon which suit is brought, or against whom suit is brought, must be commenced within two years after the cause of action accrues, and not thereafter:

“(a) Tort actions, including but not limited to actions for negligence, trespass, malicious abuse of process, malicious prosecution, outrageous conduct, interference with relationships, and tortious breach of contract; except that this paragraph (a) does not apply to any tort action arising out of the use or operation of a motor vehicle as set forth in section 13-80-101(1)(n).” 

If you get injured on public property or land owned by the government, however, you will only have 182 days to file your claim under the Colorado Governmental Immunity Act. Other circumstances can also shorten or extend the filing deadline. The best way to preserve your right to recover compensation is by contacting our premises liability attorneys without delay.
