The Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle at Mintz Law Firm
When the negligence of another person, company, or entity causes you harm, you have the right to take legal action. While it can’t undo the pain and suffering you and your family have suffered, a personal injury claim can help you recover the compensation you need to ease the physical, emotional, and financial burdens associated with the incident. This can allow you to begin the healing process and move forward with your life.
At Mintz Law Firm, our Denver-based personal injury attorneys have experience handling a variety of injury claims and are available to assist individuals and families throughout Colorado. We offer compassionate legal counsel and dedicated representation throughout every step of the legal process. We can help you with the following types of injures:
Property owners have a legal obligation to provide a reasonably safe environment for anyone who lawfully enters their property or premises. Legally, this obligation is referred to as a duty of care. Failure to keep the property reasonably safe is considered a breach of the owner’s duty of care, which makes them liable for any injuries that result from the unsafe conditions on their property.
Often, the injured individual winds up paying the bill for another’s lapse in attention that caused their injuries. Where the accident occurred and whether someone’s negligence led to the unsafe conditions that caused the fall are the determining factors for slip-and-fall liability. If you or a loved one has suffered from injuries related to a slip-and-fall incident where another party was largely responsible, you have the right to recover damages for your losses. Your best strategy is to consult an expert slip-and-fall lawyer as soon as possible.
Dog and animal bites are a major problem in the State of Colorado and throughout the rest of the country. Given the sheer number of pet dogs in U.S. households, it’s no surprise that more than 800,000 Americans get medical treatment for dog bites every year. In fact, one out of five dog bite incidents require medical attention to prevent dangerous infections for the victim. Children and the elderly are more likely to suffer injuries from a dog bite attack, with children between the ages of 5–9 at the greatest risk. Dog bite injuries can vary from a minor scrape to severe impairment and, in the most extreme cases, wrongful death.
Victims of dog bites are entitled to medical and financial compensation for their injuries and can even seek punitive measures against the dog owner. Colorado law protects victims by requiring dog owners to take responsibility for any injuries inflicted upon others by their animals. The owners must cover all financial damages—medical and otherwise—for an attack that causes serious bodily injury. Let us help you heal by getting your case started today.
When you place your elderly family member in a nursing home, you’re putting a large amount of trust in the establishment and its staff to care for and respect them. When that trust is broken in the form of elder abuse—which occurs when a resident suffers harm or neglect—it can lead to serious illness, severe injury, psychological damage, and even death.
Today, more that 1.4 million patients reside in nursing homes. Elderly residents are an exceptionally vulnerable group—with mental or physical disablement leaving them more prone to abuse and neglect—leading to a particularly high number of cases. While it’s difficult to know for certain how many people are suffering from elder abuse in nursing homes a comprehensive article published in The New England Journal of Medicine found that approximately 10 percent of patients face some sort of abuse, including physical, psychological, verbal, and sexual trauma.
Our elderly population has the right to proper care and attention and to be treated with dignity and respect. If you suspect that a loved one is suffering as the result of nursing home abuse or neglect in Colorado, it’s important to immediately take action against the responsible parties.
Every day, thousands of Americans are safely vaccinated against diseases and illnesses. However, it’s possible for an individual to have a rare, severe, and debilitating reaction as a result of a vaccine. When this is the case, the recipient of the vaccine may be entitled to compensation for their injuries under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.
Created by Congress in 1986 in response to a series of lawsuits against vaccine makers, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program covers vaccination-related injuries such as Guillain-Barre syndrome, anaphylaxis, shoulder-related injuries, vasovagal syncope, vaccine strain virus, and polio. To qualify for the program, a victim must have experienced one of the following: surgery that required a hospital stay, six months of treatment, or death. The program covers 13 vaccinations, including seasonal influenza, tetanus, and measles.
Boating in the State of Colorado can be a fun recreational activity. Unfortunately, however, the benefits of water recreation sometimes come at a cost. Injuries and even death while boating happen at a rate higher than you might expect, with many collisions being a result of a lack of safety measures or by operator negligence. When accidents happen, you can rest assured that you’ll be protected against the at-fault party.
Federal, state, and international maritime laws each have their own regulations regarding boating accidents. As a result, building a claim to receive compensation can be a complicated process. Fortunately, the experts at Mintz Law Firm have experience handling these complex claims and can help you recover compensation for your losses, including medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We understand the ins and outs of boating laws in Colorado as well as the small details that can make or break a case.
Product liability, which refers to a manufacturer or seller being held liable for placing a defective product into the hands of a consumer, is the cause of thousands of injuries each year in the United States. When you buy a product, you should be able to expect that you won’t be injured because of a safety defect. While product designers and manufacturers have a legal duty to ensure that all products they put on the market are reasonably safe for consumers, that doesn’t always occur. In far too many cases, companies put profits over people and they rush unsafe and defective products onto the market.
If you were hurt by an unsafe product, the negligent product designer or product manufacturer should be held legally liable for your damages. However, actually obtaining fair compensation can be difficult, especially if you decide to take on a big company alone. Our Colorado product liability lawyers can help you fight for the money that you deserve, including compensation for medical bills, physical or psychological rehabilitation, lost wages, pain and suffering, and mental anguish.
At Mintz Law Firm, our product liability attorneys are well versed in the laws that protect consumers against the harm posed by defective products. When a consumer sustains an injury due to a defective product, a number of parties can be held liable for releasing a product that they knew or should have known posed a risk to users.

How Do I Know If I Have a Personal Injury Case?
Anytime you are injured due to the neglect and a disregard to duty of care on behalf of any person, business, property owner, company, or another liable party, you may have a strong personal injury case. Suffering injuries from a slip and fall, car crash, animal bite, a nursing home negligence case, or any other significant accident where a party other than yourself may be proven negligent makes you eligible to pursue compensation.
After seeking immediate medical attention for your injuries, you may have your case evaluated by a professional Denver personal injury lawyer at Mintz Law Firm and obtain expert legal advice. Regardless of the type of accident or event and the apparent extent of your injuries, a lawyer can help you pursue the compensation owed to you because the negligent parties are responsible for the damage.

Colorado’s statute of limitations permits injured people to file a claim within two years of the day the accident occurred. Filing a claim as soon as possible with your legal team will prevent any compensation losses and lawsuit complications. Understandably, injuries from catastrophic events or severe accidents may be short and long-term, with latent injuries presenting as time goes on. Depending on the extent of your injuries and the totality of damages, your case resolution may be extended due to the circumstances of the damages you have endured. Typically, a personal injury claim may be resolved within a few months to two years.
