A premises liability case arises in Colorado in a circumstance where someone has sustained an injury on real property owned by a person (other than the injured party) and the injured party was in fact injured by the negligent acts of that landowner or his/her authorized agent. The landowner’s duty of care to the injured person and thus his or her resultant potential liability to the injured person is dictated by the injured person’s legal classification when he or she physically enters upon the landowner’s property (i.e. trespasser, invitee, licensee, etc…).
Bringing a premises liability action in Colorado is subject to a statute of limitations for filing a claim. If you were injured on the property of another person by the landowner’s negligent acts or the negligent acts of the landowner’s authorized agent you should call the Andrews law firm as soon as possible. If you delay in filing your claim and exceed the time allotted by the statute of limitations to file a claim, then you may be forever barred from filing a claim and your legal right to seek recovery will be forever barred.
