Personal Injury

A Personal Approach to Personal Injury

Being injured is a life-altering event. The Colorado Springs personal injury lawyers at Travis Law Group understand the physical and emotional pain associated with being injured. We provide skilled and aggressive representation to help you or your loved ones following serious injury or harm due to an automobile or motorcycle accident. We deal with insurance companies in a professional, assertive manner, striving to obtain maximum compensation for your injuries, lost wages, and other damages.

We represent clients in the following personal injury law areas:

Accidents are About People, Not Cases

We take a personal approach to personal injury. If you’ve been injured in an accident, an experienced Colorado Springs personal injury lawyer with Travis Law Group can assist you in obtaining compensation for your injuries. Financial compensation can cover one or more of the following:

  • Types of loss
  • Employment-related damages (e.g. lost wages)
  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent impairment
  • Disfigurement

Our personal approach translates to unparalleled preparation.
As part of the process of representing you, we collect all of the necessary medical records as well as any pertinent financial and insurance information. We evaluate the possible sources of recovery—the offending driver’s liability insurance, the client’s underinsured/uninsured motorist policy, and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage—and help you make the most of the available options. We also have experience in cases involving trucks and other commercial vehicles, which implicate recovery under commercial insurance policies.

We use skilled negotiation to advocate for your best outcome.
The experienced attorneys at Travis Law Group advocate aggressively on your behalf when confronting insurance companies. Generally, the primary goal is to settle the case without litigation. As such, we use our extensive negotiation skills to reach an advantageous and prompt resolution.

Extensive litigation experience is on your side.
When a lawsuit is necessary, the skilled litigators of Travis Law Group leverage each step of the process to your advantage. In some cases, the additional pressure of a lawsuit to defend may motivate an insurance carrier to reach a settlement before trial. However, if a case does go to trial, we have the litigation experience to make a forceful argument to the jury.

Following the settlement of a case or a jury award, we facilitate translating the legal victory into actual money for you. We help to finalize the compensation process expeditiously, ensure that all the creditors and outstanding bills are paid, and allow you to move on to other aspects of life without undue delay.

Were You Injured on Someone Else’s Property? We Can Help

Every year, thousands of people suffer serious injuries due to a “slip and fall accident” or a “trip and fall accident.” Property owners are responsible for managing safe conditions on the property they own and may be held liable for injuries that occur on their property. These injuries can occur inside or outside–at a residence, public place, or a place of business. Examples of premises liability claims handled by the Colorado Springs personal injury attorneys of Travis Law Group include:

  • Slipping
  • Tripping
  • Falling
  • Harm caused by the negligent operation or maintenance of equipment

We take a personal approach to personal injury.
Accidents are about people, not cases. We understand the results of accidents and their impact on our clients’ lives. We know that you may now have to deal with physical limitations and restrictions, chronic pain, medical bills, confusing health care insurance, and in many cases lost wages. If you’ve been injured, a Colorado Springs personal injury attorney at Travis Law Group can help you receive due compensation.

Our experienced personal injury attorneys can evaluate your claim.
As the first step in the process, we help you evaluate your chances of receiving compensation. We gather all the documentation necessary to make a demand for damages, including medical records and insurance information. As experienced personal injury attorneys, we understand the complex legal rules and conditions that apply to the various types of personal injury claims.

Our negotiation and litigation experience works for you.
We proceed to negotiate with the commercial or homeowners insurance carriers in an effort to reach a favorable settlement. Our Colorado Springs personal injury attorneys have the knowledge and experience to deal with the insurance company’s team of lawyers and adjusters, and we’ve done the research to know a reasonable settlement when we see one. If a case does not settle, the experienced litigators of Travis Law Group are prepared to try your case to a jury and forcefully argue for the maximum award of damages.

Advocating for Your Rights When the Government is Negligent

The Colorado Springs personal injury attorneys of Anderson & Travis are skilled at seeking compensation for clients injured by persons acting on behalf of government entities. The harm may be caused by intentional action by a government agent or may result from the performance or the failure to perform an official function. In such cases, the government may be held responsible for the injured person’s loss and be required to provide compensation for the damages suffered.

Our experienced Colorado Springs personal injury attorneys can help you recover against a municipality, city, state, or the federal government. Common government negligence cases include:

  • Police misconduct
  • Accidents caused by failure to maintain (signs, buildings, roads, etc.)
  • Accidents involving a governmental vehicle
  • Injuries to children at school (bus accident, unsafe playground, etc.)
  • Injuries in a military medical facility

We can help you recover just compensation under the Federal Tort Claims Act.
The Federal Tort Claims Act is a federal law that allows an injured person to bring a claim against the US government. Typically, the federal government is immune from injury claims under the sovereign immunity, but when government employees are negligent or otherwise commit misconduct within the scope of their employment, The Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) is an exception to this immunity. While claims under the Federal Tort Claims Act usually involve the United States Armed Forces, they can also involve administrative and law enforcement agencies. For example, the Federal Torts Claim Act would be applicable to situations in which a federal agency or employee is the responsible party in an auto accident, slip and fall accident, or medical malpractice. Regardless of the government entity at fault, the attorneys of Anderson & Travis have the experience you need to obtain recovery.

We help you avoid the procedural and administrative pitfalls.
The administrative process involved in actions against government entities is unique to these types of personal injury cases. Therefore, in order to avoid compromising the chances for maximum recovery, it is essential to comply with all of the applicable requirements. If working with a Colorado Springs personal injury attorney from Anderson & Travis, you can rest assured that we have the experience and know-how to steer clear of any administrative pitfalls.
