Colorado SPrings Personal Injury Attorneys

Clawson & Clawson, LLP Serving Accident Victims Since 2004

As soon as possible after an accident, contact us at Clawson & Clawson, LLP. Our Colorado Springs personal injury attorneys bring more than 100 years of collective experience helping the injured find full and fair compensation. We know how to get results for our clients and we care about your recovery.

Why Hire Clawson & Clawson, LLP for Your Accident Claim?

We know how important it is for you to recover the full amount you deserve and we want to help you walk away from this situation in the best possible position.

Our attorneys settle a large percentage of our cases out of court, but we do not hesitate to go to trial if necessary to secure the award amount or judgment you deserve. Individuals who hire personal injury lawyers are frequently successful in recovering greater amounts of compensation than they otherwise would have, as an insurance company's first offer is rarely, if ever, a fair one. In many cases, insurance companies practice bad faith, refusing to pay the compensation you deserve – if any at all.

  • Rated 10 out of 10 "Superb" on Avvo.

Types of Personal Injury Claims We Represent

At Clawson & Clawson, we handle all types of accident, injury, and wrongful death cases. No claim is too complex for our experienced team to handle. To ensure our services are accessible to anyone who has been a victim of another person's negligence, we represent clients on a contingency fee basis. In other words, you will not have to pay for your personal injury case until you collect compensation.

We are equipped to negotiate and litigate all types of claims, including those involving:

If you would like to learn more about contingency fees or have other questions about your case, please give our office a call at (719) 602-5888.

Types of Damages Available to Colorado Accident Victims

The goal in a claim is to provide the plaintiff — you — with sufficient compensation to fully offset the economic impact of the accident.

There are three types of damages to consider when filing an accident claim. They are as follows:

  • First, you can claim economic damages for all of your financial losses, including medical expenses for emergency treatment, hospitalization, surgery, rehabilitative care, medicine, and equipment, as well as for your lost wages and reduced future earning power.
  • You can also claim noneconomic damages for the pain, suffering, and mental anguish you have been subjected to during your ordeal.
  • It may additionally be possible to claim punitive damages by demonstrating that the accident was caused by the gross negligence or intentional misconduct of the other party.

Compensation for Victims of Motor Vehicle Accidents

Were you involved in a car accident caused by a careless or reckless driver? All too often, insurance companies treat the victims as if they did something wrong by offering low monetary rewards or outright denying valid claims. Our firm represents car, truck and motorcycle accident victims as well as injured pedestrians and bicyclists.

Let our injury lawyers fight for you so that you get the money you deserve – money to cover the cost of things like:

  • Medical expenses
  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • Property/vehicle damage
  • Lost wages

Catastrophic Injuries & Wrongful Death

Injuries are considered "catastrophic" when they threaten the victim's life and/or cause permanent disability or disfigurement. The cost of medical care for catastrophic injury care victims is great due to the need for lifetime care, rehabilitation and loss of enjoyment of life.

Catastrophic injury cases can include conditions such as:

Our attorneys also represent grieving family members after the tragic loss of a loved one. When someone is killed through the negligent, careless or wrongful actions of another, the family can take legal action and file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Slip & Fall and Other Premises Liability Accidents

Did you slip, trip or fall on a property because of hazardous and dangerous conditions? Property owners are responsible for maintaining safe, up-to-code premises and can be held responsible when visitors are injured by defects on their property.

Our firm can represent clients in premises liability cases against a number of different types of defendants, including:

  • Apartment landlords
  • Restaurants
  • Hotels
  • Building owners/managers

Level the Playing Field with Insurance Companies

Don't try to settle your claim by working directly with the insurance company. Remember: they don't have your best interests in mind. Whatever your case is worth, they are likely to do everything they can to reduce this amount or even deny you a settlement outright. They have teams of adjusters, claims representatives, and even attorneys to defend their bottom line, so don't you think you should have your own legal representation to fight for you?

Let our lawyers help you gather the necessary evidence for your claim, negotiate with the insurance company representatives, and even take your case to trial if necessary.

Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  1. Am I entitled to compensation?
  2. How do you prove my claim for damages?
  3. What are examples of negligence?
  4. How much is my case worth?
  5. Will I have to go to court?
  6. How much will it cost me to hire a lawyer?
  7. Why Should I Hire Clawson & Clawson, LLP?

1. Am I entitled to compensation?

Some accidents are the fault of the injured person while other incidents are simply unavoidable. In many cases, however, the accident is caused by another person. If someone else is at fault for causing your injuries, then you are most likely entitled to demand financial compensation for the losses you have suffered.

2. How do you prove my claim for damages?

Winning a personal injury or wrongful death case depends on being able to prove that the accident was caused by another person's negligence. If the other person's careless or reckless actions — or failure to act — caused you to be injured, then you should not be forced to pay the price for the accident.

3. What are examples of negligence?

Negligence can occur in an almost endless variety of scenarios. Drunk driving accidents are a common example, given that the driver willingly places everyone on the road at risk of incurring serious injury or being killed. Another common example is a truck accident or car accident caused by a distracted driver, such as one who was talking or texting on a cell phone at the time of the accident.

The legal principle of "premises liability" makes it possible to sue a property owner for an accident such as a slip and fall, provided that the owner knew about the hazard that caused the accident yet failed to take reasonable safety precautions. Similarly, you can sue a doctor for medical malpractice or a manufacturer for injuries caused by a defective product. Any time you have been injured as a result of another person's wrongful actions, you have a right to demand fair compensation.

4. How much is my case worth?

It is impossible to predict with accuracy how much you will receive at the conclusion of your case, but there are certain guidelines we can use to estimate how much you have a right to claim. The goal in your case is to secure sufficient compensation to fully offset the significant economic impact of your accident and ensure that you are not forced to bear the burden of the other party's negligence.

This means that your claim can include compensation for all of your medical expenses for the treatment you have received and will require in the future, as well as for the income you have lost and will lose as a result of reduced earning capacity. You can additionally claim noneconomic damages for the pain and suffering you have been forced to experience.

5. Will I have to go to court?

Having to go to court depends entirely on whether or not the insurance company agrees to pay you the amount you deserve. If they are willing to pay you a fair settlement out of court, then it will not be necessary to resort to litigation. If, on the other hand, they practice bad faith and refuse to pay you what you deserve, then we may have to take the case to a full jury trial in pursuit of a verdict in your favor. Through exhaustive preparation, we are frequently able to settle our clients' cases out of court.

6. How much will it cost me to hire a lawyer?

Because we work on a contingency fee basis, you will not have to pay us a dime up front. With contingency fees, the client is not charged a retainer, but is instead charged a percentage of whatever is won in a settlement or jury verdict. In other words, you won't have to pay us a fee unless we win your case.

7. Why Should I Hire Clawson & Clawson, LLP?
