When a careless, distracted, or drunk driver hurts you or even kills a family member, Colorado law allows you to recover the damages that can be linked to the crash. For example, our Milliken personal injury lawyers have decades of collective experience helping our clients recover medical expenses, lost earnings, out of pocket costs, emotional damages such as pain and suffering, and physical impairment and disfigurement.
When putting together an accident claim to present to the insurance company or, if negotiation has failed, to a jury, it is important that you show that your harms and losses were caused by the accident. This is a legal concept called “causation.” At Cook, Bradford & Levy, LLC, we have worked with many doctors, chiropractors, and other medical providers in the Northern Colorado to build our clients’ cases so that causation of their injuries is clear. Not only do we regularly meet with our clients’ medical providers to build their cases the right way, but doing so helps us understand what our clients’ are going through and what they can expect medically now and in the future. A good Milliken personal injury lawyer should have a good grasp of his or her clients’ injuries, their costs, and how the client has been and will be effected by those injuries. This is critical in understanding a claim’s value, which is necessary for negotiating the claim and understanding whether the insurance company is offering fair value.Standing Up for our Clients at Settlement & in the Courtroom
Many law firms claim that they can get you a big settlement just through negotiation with the insurance company. While most cases do settle, some require that a lawsuit be filed before settlement can happen. This is because the insurance company – rightly or wrongly – may not initially feel you have a strong enough case to warrant them paying you full compensation for your injuries. This is why it is important that as you are choosing your lawyer, you consider whether a law firm has meaningful experience in the litigation process and in presenting cases to juries. Quite simply, insurance carriers take law firms more seriously if they know that the firm can and will take your case to a jury if needed.
At Cook, Bradford & Levy, LLC, our Milliken personal injury attorneys have decades of collective experience representing our clients in lawsuits across Colorado and in other states like Oklahoma, Nebraska, Florida, and Maryland.

We are also very experienced at bringing slip and fall claims under Colorado’s premises liability act, and we can handle most types of accident claims including nursing home negligence, dog bites, and accidents involving commercial semi-trucks.
