In Colorado if you are injured on someone else’s property, the theory of law is called premises liability. Whenever we file a claim or file a lawsuit it’s under the premises liability statute. There are all types of premises liability cases that fall under that statute. It’s not just slipping on a wet or sticky substance, which is the vast majority of the cases we see. You can also injury yourself via some type of broken furniture. We’ve seen people sit down on stools that have collapsed and causes a traumatic injury. Someone reaches for some product off of a shelf and it falls and hits them in the head, that happens quite frequently. Premises liability covers a broad range of injuries that occur on someone’s property.
