Description: Denver, Colorado personal injury lawyers represented the Plaintiff who sued the Defendants on negligence theories.

This case was filed in the Denver County District Court, 2022CV33567, and was removed to federal court by the Defendants.

Colorado negligence law is based on the principle that people have a duty to act reasonably and avoid causing harm to others. If someone breaches this duty and their actions cause harm, they may be held liable for negligence.

To prove negligence, a plaintiff must establish the following four elements:

Duty of care: The defendant had a legal duty to act reasonably to avoid causing harm to the plaintiff. Breach of duty: The defendant failed to act reasonably, falling below the standard of care that a reasonable person would have exercised in the same situation. Causation: The defendant's breach of duty caused the plaintiff's injuries. Damages: The plaintiff suffered actual damages as a result of the defendant's negligence.

Colorado is a modified comparative negligence state. This means that a plaintiff's damages will be reduced by their percentage of fault for the accident. However, if the plaintiff is found to be more than 50% at fault, they will not be able to recover any damages.

For example, if a plaintiff is injured in a car accident and found to be 20% at fault, they will only be able to recover 80% of their damages from the defendant. However, if the plaintiff is found to be 60% at fault, they will not be able to recover any damages at all.

Colorado negligence law applies to a wide range of accidents and injuries, including:

Car accidents Slip-and-fall accidents Medical malpractice Product liability Wrongful death

If you have been injured in an accident in Colorado, you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss your legal options.
