Hurt on Someone Else’s Property?
Injury Lawyers Experienced in Premises Liability
Premises liability laws make an owner, manager, or possessor of land responsible for injuries suffered on the premises. The owner’s liability extends beyond inside the building to areas such as sidewalks, driveways and parking lots. Metier Law Firm, LLC has nearly 30 years of experience representing victims in personal injury matters, including premises liability cases. With offices in Colorado and Wyoming, our experienced, dedicated injury lawyers work tirelessly to get compensation for our clients in premises liability cases throughout the United States, including Colorado, Nebraska, Texas, Louisiana, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Dakota, California, Oregon and Washington.
Premises liability laws vary from state to state. In Colorado and Wyoming, you will need to prove that you were on the property legally, that the owner or manager had a duty to protect you and that your injury was a result of the owner or manager’s negligence. In addition, if you rent, your property owner has a duty to make sure there are no structural or other problems to the building and provide adequate security measures to protect both their tenants and visitors from injury. Premises liability claims include slip and fall cases, cases where there is a lack of security which result in violent crimes, cases of broken sidewalks or falling objects and incorrect signage or no signs at all.
Injuries can range from simple broken bones to more severe injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, psychological injuries and even death. Our attorneys are aggressive in litigation, preparing every case as if it were going to trial and will fight to get you compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages and medical expenses.
It is good practice to file premises liability claims in a timely manner. This will protect and preserve vital evidence for your case. In most cases, after you file your claim, owners correct the defect. It is important to gather all medical information pertaining to your injury, document where and when the injury happened and what condition the property was in at the time of your injury.
