Practice Areas

Auto Accidents

In Colorado, as in many other states, automobile and pedestrian accidents are a common occurrence. At The Sturgell Law Firm, our clients have fallen victim to these acts of negligence and often feel overwhelmed, with nowhere to turn. It is our mission as personal injury lawyers to ensure that our clients are made whole in the face of these losses.

Often, our clients have been injured as a result of distracted driving or on occasion, perhaps even driving under the influence of a controlled substance. In addition to the above, we often see clients injured as a result of rear-end accidents, t-bone collisions, and accidents involving a negligent driver disregarding a traffic signal.

Personal Injury

Personal injury refers to any loss suffered at the hands of another, typically as a result of negligent conduct. Four elements, duty, breach of duty, causation, and damages comprise a negligence claim. Experienced personal injury lawyers can dissect your possible claim and advise you as to whether it is compensable.

Workers Compensation

On occasion, we at the Sturgell Law Firm come across injury claims where the victim was driving in the scope of their employment. In this circumstance, there exists an interplay between a client’s workers compensation claim and their personal injury tort claim against the at-fault driver. At the Sturgell Law Firm, we are prepared to advise potential clients of their rights under this interplay and the best practices in order to maximize their rights of recovery.

Diminished Resale Value

An often misunderstood aspect of property damage is a claim for diminished resale value. Simply put, this claim revolves around the inherent diminution in value resulting from the stigma that your vehicle carries with it as a result of simply being involved in a collision. Diminished resale value can quantify itself across a wide spectrum of values depending upon factors such as the make, model, age, scarcity, or mileage of a vehicle, in addition to the amount of property damage suffered. Our firm can assist clients in the retention of a qualified expert to offer an appraisal as to your diminished value claim.
