When You’re Injured On Someone Else’s Property
You can hold several types of property owners accountable if you were injured on their premises. In some cases, it’s even worthwhile making a claim against the homeowners insurance of a friend or family member.
Making such an insurance claim does not penalize your friend or family member (besides a slight possible increase in premiums). Your injury, whether from a dog bite, fall or cut, is exactly why homeowners insurance exists. Accidents happen.
When you are seriously injured on someone else’s property, the property owner is almost always liable for your injuries and the resulting costs of your recovery. However, whether you are making a claim against a homeowner or business, recovering the maximum compensation you deserve is never a sure thing.
The insurance company will always work aggressively to limit the compensation it pays you. And your claim may initially be denied completely.
Maximum Compensation Requires Maximum Advocacy
No insurance company is going to agree with your demand for compensation from the beginning, regardless of the skills and reputation of your lawyer. If you think the government is difficult to deal with, wait until you encounter an insurance defense lawyer.
Luckily, your exposure to the nitty-gritty aspects of the legal process and negotiations will be minimized with our representation. Although you may have to attend a few meetings with the opposition and possibly court hearings if your case cannot be settled for an appropriate amount, we will handle all communications with insurance companies and all legal aspects of your case. We will even help you find the best possible medical care available for your injuries.
At Flesch & Beck Law, we have been representing injury victims throughout Colorado’s Front Range for over 20 years. Our attorneys represent people injured on residential, commercial, industrial and government property. Where you are injured can make a difference. Statutes of limitations are strict in many cases and especially in cases against a governmental body.
Bring your claim to the attention of an attorney as soon as possible and before you have made any recorded statements with an insurance representative. Do NOT admit fault.
What Is A Premises Liability Injury?
We will help you thoroughly understand your unique case, and we will help you make informed decisions throughout. Types of premises liability incidents include:
- Trip-and-fall and slip-and-fall accidents
- Animal attacks (including dog bites)
- Unsafe and hazardous property conditions such as poor lighting, cracked or uneven walkways, torn carpet, falling merchandise, broken steps or railings, slippery floors, inadequate security, potholes in parking lots and other hidden hazards
- Dram shop or bar liability, which involves a bar or restaurant serving an obviously intoxicated patron who then proceeds to cause you injury
