Looking for a Denver personal injury lawyer to help with a dog bite case?
If you were recently bitten by a dog, you may have grounds for a premises liability case. A premises liability holds property owners responsible for accidents and injuries that occur on their property. Although the most common premises liability cases are the result of slip and fall incidents, there are many other reasons a person can be injured on the premises, or property, of another. As mentioned above, one example is dog or animal bites and attacks. If you think you have a case, give us a call.
With premises liability cases, our Denver lawyers will generally work to prove negligence or some other wrongdoing by the property owner. Another common example of a premises liability claim is injury due to falling objects at a store. In the event you are injured by a fallen object or other debris at a place of business, you need to seek medical attention, file a report, and call us as soon as possible. If the property owner didn’t take the necessary steps to prevent your injury from happening, there’s a good chance you have a case.
It’s important to note however, that Colorado also imposes a strict liability law in cases in which the animal causes serious injury (including broken bones, third degree burns, loss of body functions).Unlike a negligence-based cases, the liability applies even when dog’s owner did not know the dog would bite. If you have been bitten or attacked on the premises of another, suffered a slip or fall injury, or hurt by falling debris in a store, you need to seek medical attention, file a report, and call one of our experienced Denver attorneys as soon as possible, preferably before statements have been given and before important evidence is destroyed or unavailable.
