Dealing with serious injury puts a significant burden on victims and families. Medical expenses, lost wages and lengthy rehabilitation are commonplace. Financial stress, pain, depression and strained relationships are too often unfair consequences.
When injury occurs through the negligence of another party, victims are entitled to compensation for suffered losses. However, it is up to victims and families to assert their rights. Typically, a claim is made against the insurance company of an at-fault party. These claims are handled by insurance adjusters - who work to limit the cost of claims as a routine business practice - and insurance defense attorneys.
At Ken Fiedler Injury Law, our personal injury and wrongful death attorneys in Denver believe victims and families deserve immediate access to experienced legal help. That’s why we take cases on a contingency fee basis - by accepting a portion of any award we obtain on your behalf. This means we don’t get paid unless we win compensation for you and your family. We offer free and confidential consultations to discuss your rights. We don’t just take cases, we fight for the rights of each and every client we accept the responsibility of representing.

Drivers, for example, owe a duty of care to drive responsibly and in a reasonably safe manner. We know that if we don’t, an accident could result. Likewise, business and property owners owe a duty of care to keep their properties in reasonably safe condition and free of known hazards. When a defendant fails, and injuries result, victims are typically entitled to be compensated for related losses.
Common types of personal injury claims include:
Choosing an experienced personal injury lawyer in Denver is critical to protecting your rights and your efforts to obtain all of the damages to which you are entitled. Your chosen law firm must also have the knowledge and resources to determine the full extent of your losses.
Compensatory damages are meant to compensate victims for losses and may be either economic or non-economic. Punitive damages are available in some cases and are meant to punish a defendant who acted in a willful and wanton manner, or through fraud or malice, thereby causing harm to a victim.
