Personal Injury / Wrongful Death Litigation in Glenwood Springs, CO
Personal injury claims arise when one person's negligence or intentional acts lead to the injury of another. Oftentimes "negligence" will be found where one party breaches his or her duty to act with reasonable care. What is "reasonable care"? Often that will be defined by the circumstances of the injury, and any resulting liability will be determined by the relationship between the parties.
Successful claims for personal injury must consider liability, causation, and damages. Defenses against claims for personal injury may include intervening causes, pre-existing conditions, comparable negligence, and failure to mitigate damages. Personal injury claims are often covered by insurance of one form or another. A successful plaintiff in a personal injury suit may recover damages for medical expenses, lost wages, lost future earnings, pain and suffering, permanent disfigurement, emotional distress, loss of consortium or companionship, costs, and even sometimes attorney fees.
