Frequently Asked Slip and Fall Injury Questions

What Is a Slip and Fall?

A slip and fall accident occurs when you slip or trip over a hazard on someone else’s property, suffering injury as a result. This type of accident generally falls under the legal category of premises liability claims, which allow you to collect compensation if an owner was negligent in his or her upkeep of the property.

Many dangerous conditions can lead to slip and fall accidents, including the following.

  • Improperly cleared snow or ice
  • Broken staircases
  • Torn carpeting
  • Cracked sidewalks
  • Potholes
  • Wet floors
  • Poor lighting
  • Narrow stairs

While these conditions may lead to injury, they do not mean you are automatically eligible to file a premises liability lawsuit. To prove a slip and fall case, you must establish that negligence occurred.

How to Prove a Colorado Slip and Fall Claim?

Premises liability lawsuits rely on the theory of negligence to be successful. You and your attorney will need to work closely together to gather enough evidence to prove that the property owner knew or should have reasonably known about the hazard, and failed to take action.

To prove a slip and fall case, you will need to establish the following four elements.

  1. The at-fault party owed you a duty of care.
  2. The at-fault party breached his or her duty in some way.
  3. That breach of duty directly caused your injuries.
  4. You can collect damages as a result of these injuries in civil court.

For example, say that you notice a broken handrail on the stairs in your apartment building. You contact the landlord about this issue, but he never returns your email. The next week, the handrail breaks while you’re walking down the stairs and you slip, fall, and break your leg.

You can establish duty of care by pointing to your landlord’s responsibility to keep the premises safe and the breach of care by presenting your attempts to contact him. Your medical records and surveillance footage can show the cause of the injuries, and you can collect damages as a result.
