A Responsibility To Keep Premises Safe
Generally speaking, business owners and property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises safe for customers and other visitors. Examples of premises that must be maintained are:
- Aisles in supermarkets and other business establishments
- Interior walkways
- Sidewalks and exterior walkways
When walkways and other areas are not kept safe for walkers, accidents causing injury are more likely to occur. These situations include:
- Failure to put sand, salt or other ice-melting material on sidewalks during a snowfall
- Failure to identify or repair broken sidewalks
- Failure to properly mark and clean spills in a timely manner
When a pedestrian falls and is injured due to a hazardous condition in a walkway or other common area, he or she may have a claim for compensation.
Evidence Matters: What To Know About Preparing A Claim
Having the proper evidence is essential to succeed in a personal injury case. In addition to medical evaluations, a client should attempt to obtain photographic evidence of the accident scene. A formal incident report with the business or property owner should be filed and witnesses should be identified. Experienced Denver slip-and-fall accident lawyer Alan G. Molk can also work to obtain other forms of evidence, such as surveillance camera footage.
