Car and Truck Collisions
Bad drivers are everywhere. All it takes to end up in the hospital with severe injuries is being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Luckily, the law prevents innocent drivers from having to pay the costs of damage that are caused by others.
Our personal injury attorneys are here to help you after a car crash. Whether you were completely innocent or partially to blame for the collision, we will help you recover compensation from the other driver or his or her insurance company. Recovering compensation from an insurer is difficult, but we know all of their tricks and will fight them in negotiations and/or in court.
Skiing Injuries and Skier Collision Cases
What starts out as a fun day on the slopes can quickly turn into a nightmare for you and your family. As with any outdoor sporting activity, there is a real risk of injury. However, this risk is much higher if the ski resort owner or another skier behaves negligently, such as by either improperly supervising the ski lifts or skiing in an unsafe manner.
You may be able to recover compensation under the following circumstances:
- Equipment such as the ski lift breaks down due to improper maintenance
- Icy walkways or broken railings caused you to slip and fall near the lodge
- The ski lift operators do not do their job properly
- Another skier loses control and collides into you
Liability in ski accidents can be a complicated matter. Lance Sears was born and raised in Colorado, is a former ski racer, and has years of experience handling the complexities of ski accident cases. We have offices located in both Colorado Springs and Vail, Colorado.
Semi-Truck/Motor Vehicle Collisions
The sheer size of semi-trucks makes them extremely dangerous. If you are involved in a collision with a semi-truck, the consequences will likely be more serious than if you were involved in a crash with another car.
While you can recover compensation if a negligent truck driver violated federal law and caused your accident, it will be complicated. Our attorneys know how to determine liability, spot law violations, preserve and gather evidence, and fight against big trucking companies.
Lance Sears is a National Advisory Board member of the Association of Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America.
Even as bicycling becomes more and more popular, drivers are still reluctant to share the road. In most cases, drivers simply forget to check for bicyclists before changing lanes or making a turn. Either way, you can hold a driver liable if he or she hit you while riding your bicycle.
Colorado has new laws that establish and affect the rights of cyclists (see our blog). Call us for help. We will handle your claim while you focus on recovering.
Premises Liability Injuries (injuries resulting from landowner negligence)
Property owners have a duty to keep their land reasonably safe and free from dangerous conditions. This means if you are injured while visiting a store, restaurant, or business, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Common examples of dangerous conditions include:
- Broken handrails on stairs or railing on porches
- Potholes, cracks in pavement, or other uneven walkways
- Standing water or slippery substances left on the floor
- Ice and snow accumulation on outdoor walkways and stairs
- Defective equipment such as elevators or escalators
Proving that the landlord or property manager knew of the dangerous condition — and did nothing about it — can be difficult to prove. Fortunately, our team has decades of experience doing just that.
Note: In many cases, homeowner’s insurance will cover these kinds of accidents, so you do not need to worry about a friend or family member paying out of pocket.
Head and spinal injuries are two of the most serious types of injuries that you can suffer. These types of injuries can prevent you from returning to work for months or at all.
Our accident attorneys work with medical experts to make sure that you recover compensation for the full extent of your damages. This includes any long-term damage resulting from your head or spinal cord injury.
Wrongful Death Cases
There are few things worse than when the negligent actions of another person or a company that result in the death of an innocent victim. Drunk drivers, negligent employers, and even mechanical defects can cause innocent victims to lose their lives. When this happens, the attorneys at Sears & Associates, P.C. are here to make sure that the victim’s surviving family members get the compensation they deserve.
No amount of money can ever repair the pain that comes when you lose a loved one, but a wrongful death claim can help a grieving family maintain some stability in their life. Family members can receive compensation from the party at fault to cover funeral expenses, loss of financial support, loss of companionship, and other damages allowed by Colorado Law.
