How Slips, Trips and Falls Happen

If you’ve been hurt in a slip and fall or trip and fall, you are not alone. Hundreds of thousands of Americans are seriously injured in such incidents every year. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • Over 700,000 Americans are hospitalized each year because of a fall injury.
  • One out of five falls causes a serious injury such as broken bones or a head injury.
  • Falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
  • Each year, 2.5 million American seniors are treated in emergency rooms for injuries caused by a fall.

Colorado Premises Liability Law

Falls can happen any time and almost anywhere. Sometimes, they can happen because of conditions that have existed for a long time, such as cracked or substandard sidewalks, dangerous stairs or railings, or poor lighting.

Other times, falls are caused by conditions that have developed more recently but have not be addressed by the property owner, such unremoved snow, ice, or debris on a sidewalk or in a parking lot, a spill in a grocery store or restaurant that hasn’t been fully cleaned up, or an object dropped on the floor of a store.

When a property owner or other responsible parties fail to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition, someone who has been injured as a result may have a claim for compensation against the owner based on the legal concept known as “premises liability.”

The Colorado Premises Liability Act governs claims for slips and falls and other injuries on someone else’s property, and limits the time for bring such claims. But whether you will be able to recover any damages for your injuries depends on many often-complicated factors.

This includes why you were on the property and whether you had the right to be there, which will determine what kind of duty the property owner had to keep you safe.

Under Colorado law:

  • A trespasser may recover only for damages willfully or deliberately caused by the landowner.
  • A licensee – someone who has been invited onto the premises for a non-business or commercial purpose, such as a social guest – may recover only for damages caused:
    1. by the landowner’s unreasonable failure to exercise reasonable care with respect to dangers created by the landowner of which the landowner actually knew; or
    2. by the landowner’s unreasonable failure to warn of dangers not created by the landowner which are not ordinarily present on property of the type involved and of which the landowner actually knew.
  • An invitee – typically a customer or patron at a store or business – may recover for damages caused by the landowner’s unreasonable failure to exercise reasonable care to protect against dangers of which he actually knew or should have known.
