At Cook, Bradford & Levy, our experience has shown us that slip and fall accidents can happen in various ways and places. For example, our experienced Boulder slip and fall accident attorneys have represented clients who have slipped on snow and ice, liquids causing slippery floors, and hidden objects. Slip and fall accidents happen both inside and outside of buildings including parking lots, in the aisles at grocery stores like King Soopers, on sidewalks, and especially in areas where there is a transition between the outside and inside like entryways and vestibules.
When it comes to slip and fall cases, a landlord generally has a duty to keep the property safe from dangerous conditions. In stores, for example, the landlord should be taking reasonable steps to remove conditions that could cause customers to slip and fall. This means that on a cold and snowy day, or on a day where freeze/thaw cycles are likely to happen, a reasonable landlord would be expected to do things to prevent ice buildup such as shoveling, putting down ice-melt and sand, putting down mats for customers to wipe their feet, ensuring proper lighting, and putting up safety cones that warn of slippery floors. When a landlord fails to take reasonable steps causing someone to slip and fall and get hurt, the injured person can bring a slip and fall claim against the store. At Cook, Bradford & Levy, our Boulder slip and fall accident lawyers have handled numerous cases with similar fact patterns, and we are happy to evaluate your case to see if we can help you as well.Resolving Your Slip and Fall Accident
Because so many slip and fall cases happen in Colorado, landlords often try to deny responsibility by pointing the finger at the victim for something he or she did wrong. This is one of the many reasons we recommend that you retain an experienced Boulder slip and fall accident attorney who has experienced fighting big corporations and landlords. Unfortunately, landlords and property owners (who usually are represented by an insurance company) rarely do the right thing and quickly accept responsibility in even the most clear-cut slip and fall accident cases. This means that to get fully compensated for your injuries, you need to hire a lawyer with experience in litigating (filing lawsuits) and prosecuting slip and fall accidents in the courtroom.
Our Boulder slip and fall accident lawyers regularly file lawsuits when insurance companies are being unreasonable, and we have achieved a remarkable record of courtroom success throughout Colorado. We understand that clients rarely are excited about filing a lawsuit, and we work hard to minimize a lawsuit’s impact on you. In fact, most cases in which a lawsuit has been filed are resolved in mediation or through direct negotiations between your attorney and the representative of the responsible landlord. To be sure, if an insurance company fails to fully and fairly compensate you for your injuries, our Boulder slip and fall attorneys are ready and willing to present your case to a judge or jury.
