You are more likely to be injured as result of an auto accident than by any other traumatic event in your life. If you have been injured as result of an auto accident that was caused by another person, you have the right to be compensated for injuries and losses resulting from the accident. These losses may include medical treatment, property damage, lost wages, physical impairment, future medical treatment, and pain and suffering. In order to maximize your recovery, you should contact an attorney at Galperin & Associates as soon as possible. It is important that you begin gathering information and evidence that may be essential to establish your claim. The experienced attorneys at Galperin & Associates can assist you in gathering and preserving such evidence to ensure that your rights are protected.
If the driver who was at fault in the accident was insured, that individual’s insurance company has an obligation to compensate you for your damages, injuries, and losses. However, these insurance companies do not want you to contact an attorney because an attorney can advise you of your legal rights and take immediate action to assist you in gathering evidence and building your case. Even if the driver who caused the accident did not have insurance or did not have enough insurance, your own auto insurance may be required to compensate you for your damages, injuries, and losses. The experienced attorneys at Galperin & Associates can assist you in navigating the maze of insurance coverage that may be obligated to provide you money damages for your injuries.

Many of the accidents caused by these commercial truckers are caused by the owner or operator failing to comply with state and federal laws related to maintenance of their vehicles, the maximum amount of time a driver should be behind the wheel, weight limits and other factors that contribute to such accidents. Our experienced attorneys and the experienced experts we retain in such cases can maximize your recovery if you are injured in a trucking accident.

In Colorado, premises liability is a specific type of personal injury claim that gives protection to people who are injured on the property of a property or landowner. Individuals or companies that own or operate property in Colorado are responsible for injuries to visitors that occur as the result of accidents, criminal acts, or negligence.
The Colorado Premises Liability statute, C.R.S. §13-21-115, provides the framework for the duty of care for landowners.
The level of protection for an injured person depends on the status of the injured party: whether he/she is a Trespasser (a person who enters onto the land of another without the landowner’s consent), a Licensee (a person who enters onto the land of another with the landowners consent but for the person’s own convenience or purposes), or an Invitee (a person who enters onto land of another to transact business in which both the landowner and the person have an interest).
According to statistics published by The Denver Post in 2013, Colorado averages 1,600 accidents involving pedestrians or cyclists each year. Of the fatal accidents that are reported each year in Colorado, approximately 20 percent of the victims in these accidents are pedestrians or cyclists. In Denver County alone, the number of auto-pedestrian accidents was up 46 percent for the first eight weeks of 2013, according to the Denver Police Department.
Colorado residents tend to enjoy and spend substantial time outdoors, riding bicycles or walking from place to place. The City of Denver even provides a bicycle sharing program called Denver B-cycle, allowing its citizens to share bicycles to get around town. Colorado laws have been written to give as much protection as possible to the numerous pedestrians and cyclists using the streets of Colorado.
