Contributory negligence: What it is and how it affects a PI claim

In Colorado and all states, if you are injured due to another person's negligence, you can seek justice by filing a personal injury claim in a civil court. This type of claim allows you to request compensation for any and all damages associated with the incident that caused your injury. For instance, if you underwent surgery and the surgeon commits an error that results in your worsened condition, you may request monetary recovery for your losses, which might include additional medical expenses, lost wages or other costs.

Don't miss your shot at compensation after a hunting accident

Do you enjoy hunting like many others who live here in Colorado? Whether you hunt to bond with family or enjoy time with friends, the goal remains the same: to have a good time, bag some game and get home safely. Most of the time, you make it home unscathed, but this time, you suffered serious injuries due to another hunter's negligence.

Deaths on Colorado roadways increased in 2016

Traffic accidents continue to make headlines across America as the distracted driving crisis has more drivers checking their cell-phones instead of focusing on the roads. However, the latest statistics show an alarming trend that may not entirely be connected to the surge of small digital devices.

Which is riskier: cars or ski lifts?

They recommend skiers wear helmets, but have you ever seen a car driver wearing one? It's no secret that accidents happen on the slopes: broken bones, bumps, bruises and worse. Before you can ski, you have to ride to the top on an elevated chair that is exposed to both heights and to the cold winter air.

Many causes of ski injuries

Coloradans have our own language, and it's frequently tied to the local elevation. In Grand Junction that's 4,583 feet above sea level, defined by the majestic Rockies. We use the land as our playground, and downhill skiing is one of the state's top attractions for both locals and tourists.

Who is liable for a snowmobile accident?

Blessed with indescribable beauty, Colorado has all kinds of ways to connect to the season and the scenery as we turn our attention to snowfall and dressing in layers. The skiing brings in countless visitors, the game attracts hunters and the many trails provide unique and picturesque snowmobiling. The state itself has over 3,000 miles of dedicated snowmobile trails.

What are the chances?

If you're not an experienced skier, the idea of someone gliding down a mountain on a pair of skis can seem frightening and dangerous. There are cases where skiing can indeed be a dangerous sport, but according to the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA), getting killed while skiing is actually a rare thing.
