What Happens if I Am Injured on Someone Else’s Property in Littleton, Colorado?
The legal category for injuries that occur on private, public, or even government property is called premises liability.
In short, the property owner owes guests and invited visitors, which can span from friends in private residences and shoppers inside a mall to diners in restaurants and those conducting business inside city departments, a duty of care.
Simply put, they must maintain premises that are free from unsafe or defective conditions.
When they know, or should have known, that their building, store, or office contained dangerous circumstances, yet did nothing about it, the injury victim may be eligible to pursue a premises liability claim under our Colorado personal injury laws.
How Do Most Premises Liability Injuries Occur in Littleton, Colorado?
Individuals who are injured on someone else’s property are often caught by surprise by the hazardous conditions.
That is common because, just like our clients do not see a negligent driver running a red light in time to stop, they also are not on the lookout for potential hazards in private, public, or government spaces.
When our clients are caught off guard by negligent conditions, their injuries are often more severe and require extended medical care and time away from work.
The most common types of premises liability negligence can include, but is not limited to:
- Malfunctioning escalators, and elevators
- Missing or damaged hand railings
- Being stuck by or against an object
- Poorly lit areas, including parking lots and stairwells
- Uneven sidewalks and broken stairs
- Unsafe structures
- Loose floor mats
- Falls from heights
- Dog bites
- Water leaks or flooding
- Wet floors
- Insufficient security
- Toxic fumes or chemicals
If you have been injured on public, private, or government premises, we may be able to help you hold the negligent party accountable for the financial recovery you need to fully heal.
Where Do Premises Liability Accidents Happen Most in Littleton, Colorado?
Premises liability accidents are more than slip and fall injuries. They can happen when you least expect them, in very popular locations.
That is why it is so important for the owner of the premises to be proactive in removing any potential hazards as they occur, so there are no lingering dangers that could hurt others.
The most common places premises liability injuries may occur can include:
- Apartments and condominiums
- Amusement parks
- Construction sites
- Entertainment and sports venues
- Hotels and resort
- Parking garages
- Grocery stores
- Museums and aquariums
- Private property
- Professional offices
- Government buildings
- Public property
- Restaurants, bars, and night clubs
- Shopping malls
- Retail outlets
- Swimming pools
- Ski resorts and lifts
If you have been injured because of a property owner’s negligence, their insurance company — and potentially their legal representation — will start contacting you right away to get your side of the story.
Unfortunately, despite their friendly tone, they are not calling to help. They are calling to confuse you when you are most vulnerable, hoping you will take some responsibility for the accident, so they do not have to pay for your injury expenses.
Do not give them the satisfaction. Contact our experienced personal injury lawyers in Littleton, Colorado right after the accident occurs, so we can inform the insurance company or their attorneys that all communication will go through our office going forward.

If you have been hurt in an accident, do not leave your financial recovery to chance. Even if you believe you can heal in a matter of weeks, you may have no idea how your injuries will affect you in the long run, and if you handle the claim on your own, you may take a lesser settlement before you know what your complete claim is worth.
