WHAT IS A "PREMISES LIABILITY" CASE?
- posted: Jul. 09, 2016
Sometimes courts and lawyers create categories of cases. Premises liability is used to describe a wide range of cases involving injuries on another person or business' property.
The most common of these cases involve commercial properties. Commercial property owners are required to provide a reasonably safe environment for customers to traverse. Residential property owners are also required to keep their premises at a reasonable level of safety so that people do not suffer needless injury. When a shopper or visitor is injured because of unsafe premises, the owner is liable under Colorado law.
