Kohl’s is one of the largest department store chains in America with over 1,150 locations in 49 states. Colorado is home to approximately 20 Kohl’s stores from Colorado Springs, Aurora, and Denver to Longmont and the Fort Collins area. While we often think of Kohl’s as a store with big discounts and frequent sales, Kohl’s generates about $19 billion in revenue each year and is expected to earn $850 million in net income in 2018. Kohl’s clearly has the resources to comply with Colorado law and provide its customers with a safe shopping experience. Kohl’s, like every retail store in Colorado, is required to keep its customers safe from dangers that it knows about or should know about. If you or a loved one has been injured at a Kohl’s, we invite you to contact our Kohl’s accident lawyers today at 303-543-1000 for a free consultation.
At Cook, Bradford & Levy, LLC, our attorneys are experienced in handing premises liability claims, which is the law that governs most personal injuries at Kohl’s. When hiring a Colorado Kohl’s accident attorney, it is important that you find out the type of experience a law firm has. For example, does the law firm only settle cases or does it have experience litigating cases if needed? Our Kohl’s accident lawyers regularly file lawsuits and litigate against some of America’s largest insurance companies and corporations like Kohl’s.
While we are absolutely capable of fighting for our clients in the courtroom, our Colorado Kohl’s injury lawyers also understand that most of our clients usually want to avoid a lawsuit if possible. The good news is that when a law firm has a reputation of going to court, it is more likely that cases will settle for a higher value than cases handled by law firms that only settle cases or rarely appear in court. At Cook, Bradford & Levy, LLC, approximately 80% of our cases settle without needing to file a lawsuit, and of those that do require a lawsuit, approximately 90% settle in mediation. Only a small percentage of personal injury cases at our law firm go all the way to trial, and that means our Lafayette personal injury attorneys usually present 3 cases each year to juries and judges.Types of Accidents at Kohl’s

When an accident happens at a store like Kohl’s, we all hope that it will take responsibility for its actions. Unfortunately, our Colorado Kohl’s personal injury attorneys find that most of the time corporations will deny, delay, and offer far less than what you are entitled to, if they offer you anything at all. At Cook, Bradford & Levy, LLC, we are prepared to present your case to Kohl’s and its insurance company by coordinating reports from your doctors and local or national liability experts, if necessary. If our initial presentation does not result in a reasonable offer to settle your case, we have found that it is often necessary to file suit to pursue a full and fair recovery of our clients’ claims. Our Kohl’s accident attorneys will be by your side every step of the way.
