Slip & Falls Attorney in Longmont

Slip & Fall Claims in Colorado

Slips and falls can lead to serious injuries, especially for those who already have pre-existing conditions, such as an elderly person with a bad hip. When your fall is caused by negligent behavior, meaning that the property owner knew about unsafe conditions and did nothing to correct it, you are entitled to make a personal injury claim against the company or person involved.

Slips and falls can happen for many reasons, such as:
  • A restaurant forgets to put a slippery when wet sign up after mopping

  • A public sidewalk is uneven

  • A resident or business fails to shovel snow and remove ice from the path people will use to enter the building

  • A business has uneven floors and fails to correct this or place proper signage within a reasonable amount of time

  • A parking garage has dim lighting that makes it hard to see

Proving Liability

The proof falls on you, the plaintiff, to show that the defendant reasonably could have known about and prevented the issue that caused your fall. If you slip and fall in a place where you would expect to be reasonably safe, it’s crucial to write down details and witnesses’ contact information so that this can be used by your attorney when building your case.

Conditions of the fall are also taken into consideration. For instance, if you were injured after slipping on a park sidewalk while intoxicated, your case is weakened, and liability will be harder to prove.

It is also important to note that the property owner must have acted deliberately or with negligence. If an employee at a fast food restaurant spills a drink and fails to clean it up or post a wet floor sign, if you trip and fall, you will be able to make a claim against them. If you slipped on your own spilled drink, however, not so much.

Proving liability can be tough, especially if there is no surveillance footage or witnesses to back up your story. It might simply come down to your word against the property owner’s. You will not want to handle filing and defending a personal injury claim by yourself; instead, you should hire a lawyer who has dealt with these kinds of cases before and knows what kind of evidence to look for in these situations.

So, I had wanted to take the time to give an honest review. In the later months of 2020, I had the misfortune of being involved in a car accident that had permanently changed my mobility in my right foot, and had my undergo surgery to repair the damages. Due to me being an independent business owner, my situation was complicated and difficult to navigate especially seeing as I was stranded out of state where the injury occurred to seek out my medical care for over a month. It had also put the production for my business out of operations for a three month period which caused significant wages lost from my sole source of income. During this time we had begun searching for an Attourney’s to help pursue the wages lost and to help make me whole again after some hefty medical bills. After looking though multiple options, we decided to give a call to Edward Smith. Ed has been a godsend and an incredible help during this difficult time for me. He’s been polite and experienced during the healing process and always was just a text or phone call away should I have had any questions. I didn’t have to wait days or weeks for a response. I felt comfortable with his knowledge at all times and Ed even went as far as to help call my medical providers and negotiate fees to help me save additional money which was incredibly kind. After about a year, we finally have settled the case and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I can finally get back on my feet and continue to grow my business and get back to normal. I couldn’t have done it without the help of Ed Smith and his offices. If you’re considering an Attorney, you won’t find a kinder or more educated professional in the field. (And it’s a specialty, so he knows this inside and out!)

Edward was my attorney and he was fantastic! I hired him after being frustrated by my doctors who just didn't seem to understand why my ankle was hurting so badly after a car accident. They basically told me I was exaggerating my pain.
