Slip & Fall Accidents in Fruita
You might have slipped and fallen when going to the grocery store, post office, or other establishment. Or you could have fallen in public, such as while trying to traverse an icy sidewalk. Slip and fall accidents can result in serious injuries when victims fall and strike their heads or backs on the ground.
A slip and fall case turns on whether the landowner used reasonable care, but the standard will depend on why the victim was on the property. For example, if you were invited onto the property, then Colorado Revised Statute § 13-21-115(3)(c)(1) states you can sue only if the landowner failed to use reasonable care to protect you from dangers he knew or should have known about. Other visitors—such as social guests or trespassers—are owed different duties.
Many of our clients slip and fall on debris, snow, ice, and spilled liquids. Worn carpeting or loose tiles can also contribute to falls. We can analyze whether the landowner knew of the danger and what actions they took to protect you.
Our clients have obtained compensation to cover many losses, but the law gives them a short window of time to make a claim. Contact Cimarron Ridge Legal Group as soon as possible to review your case. Our consultations are free.
