When someone slips or trips on a property, the case is known as a “premises liability” case. When business and property owners are responsible, then almost all fall accidents are preventable. If you recently suffered a serious injury because of a slip or trip on a property, contact The Law Office of Anna L. Burr for a free consultation.
At The Law Office of Anna L. Burr, we encourage premises accident victims to come forward with their cases for many reasons, including justice and peace of mind. One of the most important reasons to bring a claim, however, is for financial recovery. The compensatory award you and your loved ones may receive could be precisely what you need to pay off your medical debts and move on. Holding the at-fault party financially responsible could also teach him or her a lesson, potentially preventing similar accidents from occurring on the same property in the future.
Colorado courts allow injury victims to seek economic and noneconomic damages. Economic damages include tangible financial losses such as medical expenses, lost earnings, and future medical expenses. Noneconomic damages are the intangible losses such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of quality of life. To accurately calculate your potential losses, consult an experienced Aurora personal injury attorney at The Law Office of Anna L. Burr.
Insurance companies like to point the finger at the victim for falling to look out for their own safety. The truth is that slip and fall injuries often result from property defects such as spilled liquids, inadequate storage, or debris on the floor. Property owners have a legal responsibility to routinely inspect for these hazards and repair them within a reasonable amount of time. Failure to do so, resulting in a slip and fall accident, is negligence.
Identifying the responsible party for your slip and fall accident may require assistance from a lawyer. We make ourselves available to clients 24/7 for a free case evaluation. Call us at 720-500-2076 today.
