We recently discussed the need for stairs to meet certain standards so that people can remain safe as they go up and down them. When stairs don’t meet safety standards, people can slip or trip and suffer injuries. These individuals might opt to seek compensation for the damages associated with the injuries.
Premises liability claims are sometimes difficult to handle, but we are here to help you along the way. One thing that we need to think about during the course of planning your case is the type of injury that you suffered. A head injury or a spinal cord injury can have profound impacts on your life. In both of these cases, you might have to deal with the injury and the financial devastation that can follow the injury if you are unable to work like you normally do.
We know that you might have some questions about what you can do to seek compensation. We can help you to determine how to handle your case, including investigating how the incident occurred and what types of damages you might claim. These damages might include claims to recover medical expenses, lost wages and other financial expenses. It might also include compensation for pain and suffering and future expenses.
In Colorado, you only have two years to file a premises liability claim. This is a shorter time limit than the three years you have if the injuries were due to a car crash. This means that you need to get started on your case quickly so that the time limit doesn’t slip past you.
