Colorado Personal Injury Claims
Giving You the Tools to Rebuild After a Serious Accident or Injury
Injuries caused by someone else’s negligence can be devastating. Medical bills, lost wages, and physical and emotional pain can take years to overcome. Springer & Steinberg, P.C. is based in Denver, but we know Colorado juries and that makes a huge difference. For example, a jury in Jefferson County will probably not award the same as one in, Adams, Arapahoe, or Douglas for the same accident. Boulder and Denver also have different jury pools and require a different approach. One size does not fit all, and where you were injured matters. That is why, no matter the circumstances surrounding your injury or the jurisdiction, our personal injury attorneys are well-equipped to effectively represent your interests.

Colorado Personal Injury Laws
Compensation for personal injuries caused by negligence are covered under Colorado Revised Statutes Title 13, Article 21: Damages. This also covers wrongful death (§ 13-21-201 through 204) and the principle of contributory negligence (§13-21-111), which allows that a victim’s compensation may be reduced if he or she is partially responsible for the incident that caused harm. Product liability actions are also covered (§13-21-401 through 406), as are time limits for filing cases, and all other details regarding negligence, liability, and compensation.
With nearly four decades in practice, our Denver injury lawyers have a thorough understanding of Colorado legislation and case law as it applies to all types of personal injury actions, including:
- Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
- Catastrophic injuries (burns, brain injuries, spinal injuries)
- Premises liability (slip and fall accidents, negligent security)
- Defective and dangerous products
- Medical malpractice (negligence in the medical field)
- Workplace accidents and on-the-job injuries
- Wrongful death
Finding the right balance between quickly resolving a case and giving hidden injuries time to reveal themselves is critical. Many times injuries and pain do not appear until weeks or months later. Insurance companies, knowing a victim needs the money, will take advantage of that delay, cover the minimum amount, and then ask you to abandon and release all your claims. Although we want to take care of your case as quickly as you do, speed may not ensure that you recover everything you are entitled to receive. Every case is different, and settlement is often the best resolution. But if a settlement cannot be reached, we won’t hesitate to take your case to trial.
Our office takes a collaborative approach to the practice of law, something you don’t often find at large personal injury firms. You are not just a case number placed on a calendar. Instead, we focus on the circumstances that make your case unique. We pool the experience of all the attorneys at our firm to leverage the knowledge and creativity of each attorney. When you hire Springer & Steinberg, P.C., you get a whole team and decades of experience. Our attorneys frequent all the Front Range courthouses, gaining courtroom experience seldom found at “settle-it-quick” firms. With over 35 years of experience, our partners know the ins and outs of Colorado law.
Injury care is your number one priority, and getting you compensated is ours. Although there are many types of personal injury cases, they all come down to one thing: recovering from the injuries and trauma suffered by victims. Victims can be re-traumatized by insurance companies or attorneys looking to pay less or bill more. Dealing with your injury is hard enough; allow us to take care of the bullying. Our Denver personal injury attorneys will deal with the harassment from insurance companies and hospitals. We often negotiate reduced amounts on private and government health care liens. We don’t back down or fold to unreasonable, unfair offers.
