Our team has many years of experience handling a wide variety of personal injury cases. If you suffered a personal injury, losses, or damages of any type from the accidents below, we can help you file a compensation claim.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
When you know your accident was someone else’s fault, becoming angry or bitter following an accident is relatively common. After all, you didn’t cause your injuries—why should you have to pay for them entirely on your own? The truth is, you don’t. You have legal remedies that can help you cope with your injuries and the changes that you are experiencing. You just have to take that first step by calling an auto accident attorney.
With Brighter DaySM Law, you can expect first-rate attention and service. You may not realize all of the work involved in developing a case for trial or even settlement, but pursuing an auto accident claim requires time and dedication. Our auto accident lawyers will work on many factors while your case is underway, including but not limited to:
- Obtaining police reports and police statements
- Interviewing witnesses
- Engaging experts to help with accident reconstruction
- Collecting and analyzing medical records
- Dealing with insurance adjusters
- Negotiating on your behalf
- Collecting factual information from the other parties involved in the accident
Brain injuries are serious and can cause devastating long-term effects. A brain injury can range from mild to traumatic. In addition, the term “brain injury” can refer to either a closed or open head injury. These injuries are known to affect the brain and cause impairment in either one or multiple areas.
There are many types of brain injuries, and not all symptoms appear immediately. Either way, it is important to seek medical care immediately if you think that you may have a brain injury. If in doubt, get checked out.
When someone passes due to the negligence of another person, their loved ones may be able to bring a wrongful death claim on their behalf. Basically, if the person who was killed could have sued for a personal injury if they had survived, then their loved one likely has a claim for wrongful death.
You can assert a wrongful death claim against virtually anyone, including businesses and manufacturers. Even governmental entities can be legally responsible for the passing of an individual in some situations. It’s important to explore these matters fully by contacting an attorney.
Spine and Back Injury
When you’re in an auto accident, the risks of back injuries are high, especially ones involving the neck and lower back. These areas are sensitive, and the intense trauma of a vehicle collision can cause severe damage. In fact, neck and back injuries are the most common injury resulting from an accident. During a crash, the blunt force causes your body to move until you eventually collide with something, like your seat belt, dashboard, or car door, that stops the movement. When this happens, it puts enormous pressure on your back and neck, leading to severe back pain.
Back pain from an auto accident can be painful, frustrating, and debilitating. If you sustain back pain after a collision, you need to seek medical treatment, keep track of your injuries and medical expenses, and consult with a car accident lawyer.
The huge difference in size between a tractor-trailer and a regular vehicle can contribute to devastating results in an accident. Tractor-trailers can weigh over thirty times more than a regular vehicle. As a result, tractor-trailers take longer to stop than an ordinary vehicle. These trucks are uniquely dangerous, and that is why a special license is required to operate them.
Also, unlike regular drivers, tractor-trailer drivers are required to comply with many federal regulations that dictate how long he or she can drive in one session. There are also regulations regarding how much time off for rest the driver must take between trips. Tractor-trailer drivers are also required to carefully and regularly check their trailer to make sure that it is up to code and does not have any problems. If any of these requirements aren’t complied with, you may have a case against the trucking company.
Premises Liability / Slip and Fall
Every time you visit a place, you trust that the business or property owner has repaired or removed any hazardous conditions, placed warning signs for hazardous conditions, or followed applicable code laws, for example. You trust that the property owner has provided a safe environment to prevent dangerous conditions.
Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Many property owners still allow unreasonable risks to exist, which may expose you to certain injuries. When you or a loved one is injured due to a slip and fall accident, an experienced fall accident lawyer can help you get fair compensation from the property owner and/or their insurance company.
Motorcycle accidents can often cause injuries that are much more severe than those caused by vehicle accidents due to the level of exposure that a motorcycle rider experiences compared to someone who is in an automobile.
Whether you were actually wearing that helmet at the time of your accident can have an impact on your case. If you weren’t wearing a helmet at the time of your injury and your case goes to trial, it can be difficult to convince a biased judge or jury that the other party was solely at fault for your injury. Insurance can also be a hassle to deal with after a motorcycle accident. It’s a good idea to speak with a lawyer because of the unique challenges presented by a motorcycle accident.
Dog Bites / Animal Attacks
If you or someone you love has sustained a dog bite or animal attack, you understand how traumatic and painful these injuries can be. These injuries can result in years of plastic surgeries, rehabilitation, and therapy. In Colorado, to recover medical expenses, your attorney does not need to prove that the owner had knowledge of the dog’s aggression, nor does the attorney have to prove that the dog had dangerous propensities. The dog owner is strictly liable for your medical expenses.
If you or someone you know has been the victim of these injuries, you need the services of a Colorado dog bite personal injury attorney. A dog bite attorney with extensive knowledge of litigating and negotiating dog bite injuries is crucial to receiving the compensation to which you are entitled.

Yes. Pain and suffering are called non-economic damages. They can be difficult to quantify, but they can still be included in a claim. If you can prove that you suffer from pain, emotional trauma, PTSD, or other intangible but accident-related injuries, you can include them in your claim.
