In Colorado, it is the legal responsibility of the landowner or tenant of a property to keep their premises safe for others. If you or your loved one has been seriously injured because of a dangerous condition or accident on someone else’s property, you may be able to hold the property owner liable for your injuries.

Types of Premises Liability Cases
Premises liability accidents may occur on public property, in someone else’s home or yard, or on land or in a building owned by a business or industrial concern. Common types of cases are caused by:
- Negligent security
- Faulty sidewalks
- Icy pavement
- Lighting issues
- Dangerous conditions
Slip and fall accidents are one of the most common cases we see as premises liability attorneys. Injuries can be severe, especially in the elderly or children.
Injuries to Children
In Colorado, a property owner owes a higher duty of care to children than to adults. Regardless of whether a child had permission to be on the property or not, the property owner must take reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of children on their property.
For example, if a child enters a gap in the fence and is injured or drowns in a swimming pool, the property owner may be liable.
Who May Be Liable for Your Injuries
Depending on the circumstances of your case, more than one party may be liable for your injuries. Defendants may include:
- Owner of the property
- Owner of the business on the property
- Tenant responsible for the property
- Manager of the store
- Manager of the apartment building
Our premises liability attorneys will investigate your case and determine who can be held responsible for your injuries.
