What Constitutes a “Slip and Fall?”
In Colorado, a “slip and fall” includes any type of slip, trip, and fall accident resulting in injury. To have a slip and fall case, you will need to prove that someone else—typically the owner or manager of the property where the accident occurred—was at least 50% at fault for the incident.
The property owner or another party may be at fault for your slip and fall accident if:
- You were lawfully on the property (i.e., not trespassing) when the accident occurred
- There was a defective or dangerous condition on the property
- The defendant knew about or should have known about the defective or dangerous condition
- The defendant failed to take reasonable measures to remove or repair the defective or dangerous condition and/or warn you about it
- Your slip and fall accident resulted from the defective or dangerous condition
- You were injured and suffered measurable damages
- You were less than 50% at fault for the incident (if you were partly at fault)
The defendant may raise any number of defenses to your claim, including arguing that you were trespassing or in an area of the property you weren’t allowed to be in when the accident occurred. They may also argue that the defective or dangerous condition was “open and obvious,” meaning you could have easily recognized the danger and avoided injury.
At Mike Slocumb Law Firm, we know how to build strong, evidence-based claims on behalf of our clients. Our Denver slip and fall attorneys can fight back against the property owner or insurance company’s efforts to dispute or devalue your claim and help you seek the maximum compensation you are owed.

If you are injured in a slip, trip, and fall accident on someone else’s property, there are several things you should do as soon as possible after the incident. Taking these steps not only ensures your continued safety and wellbeing but also protects your rights, including your right to file a personal injury claim.
After a slip and fall, you should take the following steps:
- Seek immediate medical attention if you are injured. Call 911 if necessary or go to the nearest emergency room, urgent care center, or your primary care physician’s office right away.
- Notify the property owner or manager. If the accident occurred on commercial or public property, file a report with the proper authorities as soon as possible.
- Using your smartphone, take pictures of the defective or dangerous condition that caused your accident, as well as your injuries.
- Write down everything you can remember about the accident right away and request copies of the official report, your medical records, and other important documents.
- Get the name and contact information of the property owner or manager. If possible, get the name and contact information of the insurance provider.
- Follow your doctor’s recommendations and orders. Take all prescribed medications, attend all follow-up and rehab appointments, and take the necessary time off work.
- Avoid talking to the adjuster from the property owner’s insurance company and never sign anything or accept a settlement without speaking to a lawyer first.
- Contact an attorney with experience handling premises liability claims in Colorado, specifically slip and fall cases.
The sooner you reach out to our team at Mike Slocumb Law Firm, the sooner we can begin investigating your claim and gathering important evidence for your case. We encourage you to get in touch with us right away if you were injured in a slip, trip, and fall accident.
In Colorado, the general personal injury statute of limitations applies to nearly all slip and fall cases. This means that you typically have just two years from the date of the accident or injury to bring your claim in court. If you fail to file your slip and fall lawsuit before the two-year statute of limitations expires, the court will almost certainly dismiss your case.
