What Are the Most Common Types of Premises Liability Cases in CO?
There are many types of premises liability cases, which vary depending on what has caused the injury. In most cases, liability rests on the owner of the property. However, in commercial properties where other employees or persons of authority also have due diligence in the upkeep of the premises, liability can be shared.
The most common premises liability cases include:
- Slip and fall cases
- Snow and ice accidents
- Poor maintenance of the premises
- Defective conditions on the premises
- Negligent security
- Swimming pool accidents
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Amusement park accidents
- Uneven pavement accidents
- Child injuries
- Electric shock accidents
Government entities that are responsible for the care and maintenance of public spaces such as playgrounds and parks may also be held accountable if an injury has occurred.
Premises Liability vs. Personal Liability
Premises liability claims focus on the conditions of someone's property and whether or not those conditions are deemed to be unsafe whereas personal liability focuses on whether the person themselves performed actions deemed to be unsafe. In either case, you may deserve compensation if another person was careless.
How To Prove a Premises Liability Claim
While premises liability cases are not as noticeable as automobile accidents, they can still cause severe, life-changing injuries. Some cases may even result in wrongful deaths. A property owner can be held liable for your injuries if he or she failed to maintain a safe environment or warn of a dangerous condition that existed on the property.
There are many factors of proving liability but generally, the injured party will have to prove:
- That the person whose actions led to the injury (the defendant) owned, leased or occupied the property
- That the defendant was negligent in their use or treatment of the property
- That this negligent behavior was a substantial factor in causing the injuries sustained
