Personal Injury Lawyer in Westminster, Colorado, Helping Injured Victims Seek Justice and Recover Compensation
Have you or a loved one been injured in an accident? If this accident resulted from someone else’s negligent actions or recklessness, you may be entitled to recover financial compensation. Keep in mind that insurance companies often offer the minimum to victims with personal injury claims — if they can find a way to save a dime, they’ll jump on the opportunity. You don’t need to settle for less when you could recover a settlement worth so much more.
Flanagan Law was built on helping injured clients and their loved ones during some of the most challenging moments of their lives. Westminster personal injury attorney Samantha Flanagan’s passion for injury law and the legal process comes from personal experience observing the debilitating impact of traumatic injuries firsthand.
If you’ve suffered an injury — or worse, if you’ve lost a loved one in a fatal accident — you should get compassionate, respectful legal representation. You shouldn’t have to fight with insurance companies or worry about the at-fault party’s lawyers while you’re still recovering. Let an experienced personal injury law firm handle those matters for you. We can help you recover the compensation you deserve for medical expenses, lost income, and mental anguish.

Is Colorado a No-Fault State for Auto Accidents?
While some states subscribe to a ‘no-fault’ understanding of the law for motor vehicle accidents, Colorado does not. Colorado is an ‘at-fault’ state.
After an accident, you file a claim with the other driver’s insurance company. You will then hope to recover compensation for your medical treatment and other expenses from their insurance coverage.
Colorado is also a modified comparative fault (or comparative negligence) state. Both parties may be considered at fault for an accident. The comparative fault will alter the maximum compensation for a personal injury lawsuit. If your fault was 50% or more, then you are unlikely to recover anything in terms of a settlement.
What Factors Might Influence Your Personal Injury Case?
Several factors may impact your injury case, including how much you may stand to recover in a settlement. Perhaps chief among these factors is the severity of your injuries and property damage. Typically, the more severe the injuries, the more you may expect to recover in terms of compensation. And suppose, for example, you were in a car accident; the damage to the car may be taken into account. The mechanic’s bills for repairs will be more expensive for more extensive damage, so it stands to reason that your settlement should reflect that.
Another critical factor that may influence your case is the at-fault party’s insurance policy. Suppose the insurance policy does not cover all of the damages. In that case, it may be necessary to file a civil lawsuit to recover the remainder of the damages from the at-fault party themselves. If, for whatever reason, the at-fault party does not have the funds to satisfy the damages either, your legal representative will attempt to recover the damages from any and all other potentially liable parties.
What Type of Financial Compensation Can Personal Injury Lawyers Help You Recover?
The insurance company is likely to lowball you with their initial offer of compensation. You don’t have to accept it. We can help you negotiate in an attempt to recover the maximum compensation for your personal injury claim. This settlement can take the form of economic and non-economic damages. And, in cases of wanton cruelty, negligence, or intentional malice, your personal injury lawyer can also seek punitive damages.
Economic damages may include:
- Expenses for future medical care and medication.
- Funeral and burial costs.
- Lost wages and lost earning potential.
- Medical bills.
- Property damage.
- Rehabilitation therapy expenses.
Non-economic damages may include:
- Emotional trauma.
- Lost companionship.
- Pain and suffering.
- Wrongful death.
