How long will it take to resolve my claim?
It can be difficult to estimate exactly how long it will take to resolve a premises liability claim. If the at-fault party accepts responsibility for your injuries and your financial losses are fixed and known, it can take as little as a few months to settle your case and get you the compensation you deserve.
However, if there is a dispute over liability, whether you were actually injured, or the amount of damages you incurred, it can take much longer to reach a settlement, and it may even become necessary to file a lawsuit in court to pursue your claim.
If your lawsuit ends up going all the way to trial, it can take as long as two to three years to get to trial and reach a verdict in your claim, depending on the scheduling and availability of the courts.
Who can I hold responsible for my injuries?
Typically, the owner or possessor of property is responsible for the maintenance of the property and fixing or removing any dangerous or hazardous conditions on the property. However, if the property is leased to a tenant, the lease agreement may place the responsibility for maintenance on the tenant.
A property owner or tenant may also hire a third-party company to provide maintenance and repairs for the property; based on the contractual agreements between the owner/tenant and the maintenance or repair company, the company may have responsibility if dangerous or hazardous conditions arise due to improper maintenance.

Frequently asked questions
The legal definition of a personal injury is when someone’s failure to use reasonable care in a particular situation results in another person’s physical, emotional, or psychological injury. Personal injury cases often rely on the elements of negligence to prove the responsible party’s actions were the cause of the other party’s injuries.
The length of a personal injury case depends on the type of case and various factors, such as the severity of the injury sustained and the duration of necessary treatment. A car accident case might take six months to resolve, while a wrongful death lawsuit could take two years. It all depends on the circumstances surrounding the case.
No. Whether you got hurt in a car accident or on someone else’s property, you should never speak with their liability insurance company about the claim. They try to save money whenever possible and could attempt to trick you into accepting a low settlement amount or intimidate you into dropping the case. Your Denver personal injury lawyer will handle all communication on your behalf.
It depends. A vast majority of personal injury cases settle out of court. When we file a claim with the insurance company, we’ll submit evidence that proves you deserve compensation for your injuries. Sometimes the insurer is willing to settle. Other times, they deny the claim or provide a settlement much lower than you deserve. Under those circumstances, we will file a lawsuit and take the case to court.
Mediation is a step during a lawsuit where both sides meet to try to reach an agreement. The mediator listens to the arguments on both the plaintiff’s and the defendant’s sides and attempts to resolve the issue. If they can reach an agreement, they will settle out of court, and the case will get dismissed. If they can’t resolve the matter, the case will proceed to trial.
