Understanding Premises Liability Law | Boulder, Colorado
Property owners have a legal responsibility to keep their property — whether that be their apartment building, business or home — in safe working order. This responsibility cannot be waived or negotiated away. If owners fail to do this and someone else is hurt on their property, these owners are the ones who need to pay for the damages.
At Dolan + Zimmerman LLP, we know just how devastating and life-altering the injuries and emotional scars can be from an accident. We also know what the Colorado law is and how to hold negligent property owners accountable. You should not have to be the one to pay for an accident you did not cause.
Helping You Recover From Catastrophic Injuries
Your life changes when you are injured. With no warning, and through no fault of your own, suddenly your life is turned upside down. It takes time to heal and find new ways to meet life’s obligations.
At Dolan + Zimmerman LLP, we understand your fears, frustration and anxiety. We are compassionate lawyers who truly care for our clients. For this reason, we do not take on all premises liability cases. We are selective and this shows in our reputation for winning cases.
We handle many types of premises liability cases involving very real and serious injuries resulting from someone else’s negligence in keeping their premises safe. These cases include:
- Dog bites and other animal attacks: Whether the dog just ran up to you or your child on the street, or the bite came when you were visiting someone else’s home, we are here to help.
- Unsafe property: There are basics to property maintenance. For example, the stairs need to be secure in your apartment building and a gas station owner needs to make sure that his employees are wiping up any messes. All owners know this, but many still do not take the necessary steps to make sure their properties are safe.
- Negligent property management: Plenty of owners hire out another company to oversee the safe working order of their property. Unfortunately, not all property management and maintenance companies hold up their end of the deal. But this is not your problem. If you were hurt on someone else’s property and that owner was utilizing a property management company, it may be possible to hold the property management company accountable for your injuries.
