Established in 1996 in Denver, Colorado. We serve the entire state of Colorado and throughout the United States. With multiple offices located across Colorado, we utilize the latest technology our lawyers require to meet the needs of our clients, including mock trials, focus groups, and video conferences. Our in-house mock-trial room enables our team to show clients whose cases are selected for trial to view and listen to mock jurors deliberate on their cases before a real jury is even picked.

Our legal team also utilizes a two-way mirror and have wired the room for sound to obtain the most accurate and useful information regarding the potential outcomes of our clients’ cases at trial. We have incorporated conference rooms large enough to host continuing legal education presentations and seminars at our offices. This enables the attorneys at our firm and our colleagues in the legal community to keep abreast of the changes in personal injury law in Colorado and across the country.


How do I know if I have a case for a personal injury in Denver?

Sadly, workplace, community, and motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) cause millions of people to become injury victims yearly. Accident victims may have grounds for a personal injury case. Whether you suffered minor or serious injuries, you deserve compensation if you’re the victim of an accident another person caused. 

The most compelling personal injury cases involve a victim seeking compensation from the at-fault party when the at-fault party acts recklessly or negligently without concern for the safety of others. It’s natural to be in shock after an accident, and that’s why consulting a lawyer at an injury law firm is the best way to determine if you have a case.

Do I need to hire a lawyer for a personal injury claim?

Colorado law allows you to file a personal injury claim and represent yourself. However, you need to understand the legal rules and follow court procedures. Learning how to file and prepare a lawsuit can be stressful and time-consuming. When you hire an attorney from Bachus & Schanker’s Denver personal injury law firm, you can be confident you have expert legal representation from lawyers with proven case results.

What is the role of a personal injury lawyer in an injury lawsuit?

Your Denver personal injury lawyer is your legal advocate. They’ll investigate your accident, collect evidence, and interview witnesses. Hiring a personal injury lawyer in Denver ensures you’re working with a professional who’ll use their knowledge of local case law to strengthen your case.

How long do I have to file a claim for a personal injury?

The time Colorado accident victims have to file an injury lawsuit depends on the reason for their injuries. Denver, Colorado, car accident victims have three years to file a claim. However, if you were injured in a slip-and-fall accident in a store, you have two years to take legal action.

What damages can I recover in a personal injury case?

Accident victims can seek compensation for economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are straightforward because they’re the actual costs associated with your accident. They include lost income if you had to take time off and medical bills.

Non-economic damages compensate for the personal impact you’ve experienced from your accident, compensating you for things like grief, pain, and suffering. Your attorney can also help you figure out how much compensation to seek.

How long does it take to get a settlement for my injury?

It can take months or years to receive a settlement. The length of time depends on the complexities of the case. Suppose more than one party is at fault. In that case, a party may dispute their share of liability, making it harder to agree to a settlement without going to court. It takes longer to get a settlement if the case goes to trial. Since only 5% of personal injury cases go to trial, you’ll most likely settle before a trial begins.

How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer?

We’ll receive a percentage of the settlement to cover our legal expenses when we win your case. You already have enough things to worry about after a minor or serious accident, and worrying about paying an attorney shouldn’t be one of them. Accident victims don’t pay any fees until their attorney wins their case. This means you can receive legal counsel every step of the way without the added stress of legal bills.


Our attorneys handle cases that fall into several practice areas, including the following:

Car Accidents

In 2022, there were 11,931 car accidents in Denver, Colorado alone. Car accident victims may suffer from various injuries, such as broken bones, lacerations, whiplash, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and trauma. Car accident attorneys help these victims fight for fair compensation after their accidents.

Catastrophic Injuries 

Catastrophic injuries have a long-term or permanent impact on your life. Catastrophic injuries include severe injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and amputation. We fight for catastrophic injury victims to receive compensation for job retraining, rehabilitation, moving expenses, and other current and future expenses from their injuries.

Wrongful Death 

Wrongful deaths occur when an unintentional or intentional act causes someone’s premature death. Updated as of 05/01/2023, Colorado’s Fatal Crash Data shows the fatal crashes for 2023 in Denver, Colorado, are up to 14, which have caused 15 fatalities. Five of those 15 deaths were killed in an “impaired related accident,” which could be considered a wrongful death, depending on the circumstance. A wrongful death victim’s family members may be entitled to compensation for their loss through a wrongful death lawsuit.

Truck Accidents 

Truck accidents are MVAs involving large trucks, such as semis and garbage trucks. Truck accidents are among the most deadly MVAs because of the size of the vehicles involved. We help truck accident victims get justice after their truck accidents.

Motorcycle Accidents 

Motorcyclists are vulnerable because they don’t have the safety features other vehicles use to protect people from injuries. Our team works with motorcycle accident victims and fights for them to receive fair compensation for their injuries, trauma, and property damage expenses. 

Bicycle Accidents 

Bicyclists can suffer injuries when they’re struck by vehicles. Since bicycles don’t have airbags or other safety features that can reduce or prevent injuries, victims may need extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation after a bicycle accident. Our team fights for you to receive compensation for your expenses and trauma after a bicycle accident.  

Bus Accidents 

Bus accidents affect bus passengers and other parties involved in the accident. Whether you’ve been hit by a bus or were a bus passenger in an accident, we’ll fight for the justice you deserve for your bus accident injuries.

Dog Bites

Dog bite victims in Colorado can seek compensation. We’ll work on your behalf to get the dog’s owner to pay compensation for your injuries.

Medical Malpractice

When medical professionals don’t take appropriate steps to treat patients or use the wrong treatments, their patients may pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit. We work with victims to get them compensation for mistreatment or inadequate treatment from medical professionals.

Premises Liability 

Property owners are responsible for ensuring their property is safe. When they fail to take reasonable steps to prevent injuries, we help the victims fight for compensation for their injuries.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Traumatic brain injuries and broken bones are common severe injuries from slip and fall accidents. These accident victims may have grounds to file a claim if someone’s negligence caused their injury. Our lawyers will investigate your case to prove your claim and get you the justice you deserve.

Employment Law

Employers must comply with employment laws. Suppose your employer fired you without cause or engaged in other unlawful activities, such as discrimination and harassment. In that case, we’ll fight for compensation and justice for their unlawful actions.

Workers’ Compensation

An employee injured in a workplace accident can claim workers’ compensation benefits. We help these employees fight for benefits when the employer’s insurance company delays payment or denies a claim.

Sexual Assault

Sexual assault victims can use the civil court system to seek justice. We help sexual assault victims pursue compensation for the mental trauma and physical injuries they received during their assault.
