Personal Injury Attorneys in Boulder, CO

If you’ve suffered a personal injury at the hands of a negligent party, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical loss and pain and suffering. At Bachus & Schanker, our team is proud to offer comprehensive legal representation for your personal injury claim.

Because of its unique location, Boulder can serve as one of the most dangerous places to operate a motor vehicle, especially during the winter months. Inclement weather and frozen sidewalks and streets often lead to high accident and injury rates. In many instances, these injuries can be the result of another party’s negligence in clearing the roadways.

What Damages Can You Recover With a Personal Injury Claim?

With personal injury claims, plaintiffs can seek economic, non-economic, and even punitive damages. Below, we’ll outline the differences among each, so you know what to expect.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are designed to compensate a victim for their financial losses. These losses can be clearly calculated or tracked. Often these losses are highlighted by medical bills, receipts, invoices, and other documents that show a monetary loss. Economic damages can be awarded for the following:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Property damage
  • Loss of income and other wages
  • Reduced earning capacity

Non-Economic Damages

Plaintiffs can also collect on non-economic damages – losses that are difficult to measure via monetary value. Non-economic damages can include but are not limited to the following:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment in life
  • Physical disfigurement or impairment
  • Loss of companionship

Punitive Damages

In certain circumstances, you may be able to claim punitive damages when seeking a personal injury claim.

Unlike economic and non-economic damages, which are designed to compensate plaintiffs for their pain and suffering, punitive damages are not awarded as a means for compensation as a result of an injury. Rather, they are awarded to punish the defendant for their reckless or negligent behavior.

Punitive damages are also designed to send a message to other parties that such negligent behavior will not be tolerated.
