Hiring the Best Denver Personal Injury Attorney
Too many personal injury victims hire the big firm they saw on television. When they do so, they may have hired a large corporate firm whose paralegals and assistants will simply settle their case as quickly as they can, leaving thousands of dollars on the table. Sometimes, without having an attorney ever even look at the victim’s case.
The Olson Law Firm is small, for a reason. We treat each personal injury case as if it were our own. We work hard to make sure you get each dollar you are entitled to. We promise an attorney will work on your case, and keep you informed each step of the way, so that you are never guessing as to where you stand. We do this work because we care. And because we want to ensure that personal injury victims are made whole.
What is a personal injury case?
Under Colorado law, if another person is responsible for causing injury to you or your family, you may be able to seek compensation through filing a personal injury lawsuit. Injury claims can be filed against an individual, group of individuals, companies, or government agencies. This includes claims of liability for negligence, product liability, or strict liability. Personal injury claims include, among many others:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Impaired driver accidents
- Slip and fall
- Product defects
- Dog bites
- Medical malpractice
- Drug defects
- Medical device defects
- Assault and battery
- Motorcycle accidents
- Cycling accidents
- Wrongful death
- Nursing Home Abuse
You may be limited in how long you have to file a personal injury claim. The statute of limitations depends on the type of claim and who the claim is against. Most personal injury claims in the State of Colorado are limited to 2 years after the event giving rise to the injury. Automobile accident claims may have a 3-year statute of limitations. However, claims against the state, county, or city government may have a much shorter statute of limitations. Contact your attorney today so you will not lose your claim by filing a lawsuit too late.
A personal injury lawsuit will allow you to file for damages including lost wages, medical bills, ongoing medical care, loss of future earnings, loss of support, emotional damages, property damage, and pain and suffering.
Employment law is complicated and can be confusing to those who may have a valid complaint against a current or former employer. The lawyers at The Olson Law Firm know the law regarding overtime compensation, discrimination, wrongful discharge, non-compete/non-disclosure agreements, and the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). We help employees, employers and labor organizations understand the laws governing proper employment practices. The Olson Law Firm is proud to be recognized by Expertise.com as one of Denver’s top employment law firms.

What to Do if You Suspect Nursing Home Abuse
If you suspect that nursing home abuse is occurring, you should act immediately. It is important to document any signs of abuse that you can, and to gather and record any evidence of abuse.
If you believe that your loved one is at imminent risk of bodily harm, you should call 911 immediately. Otherwise, you should act by reporting the nursing home abuse to a nursing home manager; reporting the suspected abuse to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and calling an experienced Denver nursing home abuse attorney to explore your legal options.
Is Nursing Home Abuse Illegal? Can I File a Lawsuit?
If nursing home abuse is occurring, there may be both criminal and civil consequences for the abusive party/nursing home. And even when an abusive or neglectful action doesn’t constitute a crime, nursing home abuse or neglect will always be negligent at the very least, and a party may be able to bring forth a negligence case against the nursing home facility for such conduct.
A nursing home abuse action is a type of civil suit that seeks to hold the at-fault party and nursing home facility liable for a patient’s harm, allowing the patient (or the personal representative of the party in the event that the nursing home patient is not mentally competent or has died as a result of abuse) to seek compensation for the full extent of losses suffered as a result of the abuse, including compensation for pain, suffering, medical expenses, diminished quality of life, and any other economic or noneconomic losses.
What You Must Prove in a Nursing Home Abuse Claim
A nursing home abuse or neglect claim follows the same outline as the majority of personal injury and medical malpractice claims. In this type of suit, the plaintiff must establish by a preponderance of the evidence that:
- The nursing home owed a duty of care to the patient – By virtue of being within a nursing home, this is implied. Nursing home and medical providers within a nursing home, such as doctors and nurses, owe a high duty of care to all nursing home residents.
- Breach of standard of care – The plaintiff must establish that the nursing home facility breached the standard of care owed to the patient via an act of abuse or neglect.
- Causation – In addition to proving that a breach of the standard of care occurred (negligence/malpractice), the plaintiff must prove that the nursing home resident’s harm would not have occurred but for the breach of the standard of care.
- Damages – Finally, in addition to the above, the fact that actual damages were suffered (i.e. physical harm, additional medical expenses, etc.) must be demonstrated.
