What is a Premises Liability Claim?

A premises liability claim is a civil legal action. It arises from an injury accident occurring on any type of property, including:

  • Commercial
  • Private
  • Residential
  • Local, city, state, or federal government property

A premises liability claim can happen inside or outside, on a city street, private parking lot, in a store, or a residential backyard. Some of the most common premises liability accidents are the following:

  • Slip and falls
  • Snow and ice accidents
  • Inadequate property maintenance
  • Inadequate security
  • Elevator and escalator accidents
  • Porch or stair collapse
  • Dog bites
  • Water leaks or flooding
  • Toxic fumes or chemical accidents

Not every injured visitor can file a premises liability claim. In some cases, property owners owe visitors little or no obligation to keep a safe property for or even warn of a dangerous or hazardous condition.

Establishing a Premises Liability Claim

Legally, there are three types of visitors to a premises. By Colorado law, a property owner or possessor owes each of these visitors a different duty of care. The three types of visitors to a property are invitees, licensees, and trespassers.

The duty of care owed to each visitor is generally the following:

  1. Invitees. Invitees are typically retail customers. Owners and operators of businesses need to maintain a reasonably safe property for invitees.
  2. Licensees. Licensees are usually social guests. Owners owe licensees a duty to protect or notify them of dangerous conditions that they know of or should know of.
  3. Trespassers. Trespassers enter a property without the owner’s permission. Owners owe trespassers little to no duty.

An injured victim must suffer actual injuries because the property owner or possessor failed to meet their duty of care to file a compensation claim.
