If you have been injured or lost a loved one due to the negligence or wrongful acts of another, you may be able to recover damages to compensate for your injury or loss. Damages may be economic, such as medical expenses and lost wages, or non-economic, encompassing such losses as emotional distress and pain and suffering.
According to the Colorado State Patrol, in March 2009, there were 292 traffic accidents causing injury or death in Colorado. Auto accidents can range from minor collisions to major crashes and cause serious injuries or even death. They may be the result of driver negligence, such as speeding, texting, or using a cell phone, drunk driving, reckless driving, or failing to obey traffic signals. They may also be caused by defective auto parts, or by the negligence of the city or state to safely design or maintain the roadways.
When a doctor or other medical provider performs below the standard of care expected of a reasonable, prudent medical provider in similar circumstances, the doctor has violated his or her duty to the patient and may be liable for any resulting injuries. Common examples of medical malpractice include misdiagnosis or mistreatment, failure to diagnose, unreasonable delay in treatment or diagnosis, surgical errors, continuing ineffective treatments, prescription drug or pharmacy errors, and birth injuries.
Miller & Law, P.C. handles personal injury claims arising from negligence, breach of warranty, and strict products liability. Defective products may include household goods, automobile parts, children's toys, sports equipment, machinery, and most other goods. In strict products liability claims, manufacturers and other parties in the chain of commerce may be held responsible for manufacturing defects, design defects, or inadequate warnings or instructions that resulted in injuries. The plaintiff does not need to prove that the manufacturer was negligent, but only that the product was defective, the defect existed when the manufacturer released it into the marketplace, and that the defect caused the plaintiff's injuries.
If you have lost a loved one due to the wrongful act, neglect, or default of another, you may be eligible to recover the same type of damages that the injured party could recover in a personal injury action had he or she survived. You may be able to recover economic and non-economic damages for your loss, including for medical bills and funeral costs, loss of the deceased's future earnings, loss of companionship, and pain and suffering.
