Business and property owners accept certain responsibilities when they invite the public onto their property. Namely, they are responsible for identifying dangers that can cause guests to slip or trip and fall. These hazards should be cleaned up or at least identified so that guests or customers can stay safe.

If a property owner fails to take reasonable steps to safeguard guests, they can be held legally responsible for injuries.

Common Causes

Slips or trips and falls can often be avoided. Fixing dangerous conditions, or at least taking steps to keep people away from them, is usually all that is needed to keep accidents from happening.

Injuries Suffered in Slip & Falls

A slip and fall accident may result in nothing more than a bump on your knees. But many accidents may sprain your ankles and wrists, and they may even result in broken bones.

In the worst of cases, extreme slips and falls may cause you to hit your head and suffer a brain, spine, or neck injury. The harm caused by these injuries is difficult to overstate.

Your slip and fall injury attorney in Denver will take the time to speak with you and review your medical records. It is important that we fully understand how your slip and fall impacted you so we can accurately seek the compensation you are owed.


If you are successful in showing that a property owner failed to take care of a hazard that resulted in your fall, you are eligible to receive damages. These damages can include compensation for:

  • Any medical care you received or will need to receive
  • Wages you could not earn due to missing work
  • Mental pain and suffering caused by your injury
  • Distress, especially if your injuries have permanent effects

Our team of Denver slip and fall injury lawyers can help identify losses you have or might experience. This will better your chances of winning a settlement that adequately compensates you for your injuries.

Understanding Open & Obvious Hazards

A negligent property owner may try to escape liability for your injuries by resorting to the “Open and Obvious” doctrine. This doctrine bars you from recovering damages if the hazard that caused your accident was so obvious and apparent that no reasonable person would have missed it.

Courts and jurors may disagree on what a reasonable person would or would not have seen. As a result, it’s beneficial to have help from an experienced and skilled team of Denver trip and fall injury lawyers. Our legal team will strive to understand every facet of your injury and prevent property owners from avoiding their responsibility.

Colorado’s Modified Comparative Negligence Rule

A property or business owner may also seek to limit your recovery by arguing that your carelessness caused your fall. If you were looking at your cell phone, wearing inappropriate shoes for the weather, or disregarding safety signs, this could impact your recovery.

Under Colorado’s modified comparative negligence statute, if your own carelessness is the primary cause of your accident, you will not be able to recover any compensation. Moreover, if your own carelessness played any role in your accident, the compensation you do receive may be proportionately reduced.

Teaming up with a Denver slip and fall injury lawyer from Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C., can help you overcome these challenges. We fight hard to help make sure negligent property owners do not escape responsibility.
