An Experienced Firm You Can Trust

The emotional toll, physical pain, and financial burdens of personal injury are suffered by people, not case numbers. That is why our firm believes in providing genuine service and dedicated representation for those going through turbulent times. At Lampert & Walsh, nothing is more important to us than providing top-quality legal services for anyone injured by the negligence of another person or entity. Our Denver personal injury attorney team has focused on civil litigation on behalf of accident victims for over 15 years.

Lampert & Walsh, LLC is located in Denver, CO and serves clients in the entire front range. Adams, Arapahoe, Denver, Douglas, Jefferson, Larimer, Weld & Boulder Counties.

Who We Are

Our team of Denver personal injury lawyers have worked in large law firms where we were required to handle hundreds of injury cases. While we were able to help many of our clients achieve justice, it was clear that it is impossible for a single attorney, even with exceptional legal talents, to provide each client with the attention and focus they deserved.

We then established a law firm built around providing a far superior client experience. At Lampert & Walsh, LLC we take on a limited number of cases, allowing our injury attorneys in Denver to provide ongoing, personalized legal service. We are not your average, everyday personal injury law firm, or one of the large, impersonal law firms you see advertised on TV. We are a team of experienced litigators who provide dedicated personal attention to the people we represent. Why should you call Lampert & Walsh, LLC for help?

Why Choose Lampert & Walsh, LLC in Denver?

At the Lampert & Walsh, LLC, we are driven by a single guiding principle: Our injured clients deserve personal representation and communication at every step of a personal injury case. We believe in hands-on case management – your injury case will not be turned over to a case manager or paralegal who has little to no legal knowledge or experience, but will be handled personally by our Denver injury attorneys, from start to finish.

Why You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer

In a perfect world, after suffering a serious injury, the victim would be treated with honesty, compassion, and fairness. When an injury case involves serious or life-changing injuries, insurance companies typically engage in various legal strategies in the attempt to deny or reduce the value of a settlement. Without the assistance of an injury attorney who has extensive experience in personal injury law, both in negotiating settlements and achieving justice in court, you and your case are at risk. An insurance company may take advantage of you and leave you with less financial compensation than you need and deserve. At Lampert & Walsh, our trial lawyers fight for the legal rights of injured victims and are dedicated to achieving fair compensation.

Working with Lampert and Walsh was one of the easiest things.

Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?

A personal injury case is a civil lawsuit that is filed by an injured person (the plaintiff) against the person or party who allegedly caused the injury through an act of negligence (the defendant). Negligence is the foundation for most personal injury claims. Negligence refers to the failure to exercise ordinary care, resulting in harm or injury to others. For a valid claim to financial compensation, you or your lawyer must prove the following four elements of negligence:

Duty of Care

a responsibility to behave in a certain manner; generally, to act in a way that a reasonable and prudent party would have in the same or similar circumstances.

Breach of the duty of care

an act or omission that deviates from the required duty of care, such as a motor vehicle driver who fails to pay attention to the road and causes a car accident.


a causal connection between the defendant’s breach of the duty of care and the plaintiff’s injuries or harm; in other words, the plaintiff would not have been injured but for the defendant’s negligence.


compensable losses suffered by the plaintiff (the cause for the claim). This describes losses such as medical bills and physical injuries that the plaintiff suffered as a direct result of the defendant’s negligence.

What Damages Are Available?

When you pursue a personal injury case in Colorado, it is important to understand the value of your injuries and losses. That way, you will be less likely to rush into a fast insurance settlement that is inadequate for the extent of your losses. Every case is unique, which means you will need to consult with an attorney for an accurate assessment of the value of your injury claim. It can help, however, to know the common damages that are available in this type of lawsuit:

Medical Costs

Any and all medical expenses connected to your injury, including surgeries, medical tests and scans, prescription and over-the-counter medications, mobility-assistive devices, and disability ccommodations.

Lost Wages

The amount of income you have already lost at the time that you file a claim, as well as future foreseeable lost earnings and employment opportunities due to a long-term injury or permanent disability.

Property Damage

Financial compensation to pay for property repairs or to replace a totaled motor vehicle. A totaled vehicle is one with an after-crash value that is lower than the price of repairs would be.

Pain and Suffering

Compensation for your noneconomic damages, which may include physical pain, emotional suffering, mental anguish, scarring or disfigurement, loss of consortium, inconvenience, and psychological turmoil.

Out-of-Pocket Expenses

Any money that you and your family had to spend because of your accident and injury, such as for travel, transportation, hiring an attorney or filing a claim.

Wrongful Death Damages

In a case involving the death of a victim, surviving dependents can seek funeral and burial reimbursement, lost financial support, lost inheritance, mental anguish, and other damages.

Punitive Damages

Financial compensation to pay for property repairs or to replace a totaled motor vehicle. A totaled vehicle is one with an after-crash value that is lower than the price of repairs would be.

Pain and Suffering

If it can be shown that the defendant’s actions were grossly negligent, malicious, or wanton and willful, the victim may also qualify for punitive damages. This is an additional amount awarded to punish a defendant.

The value of an injury claim in Colorado is calculated according to factors that are unique to the case, such as the gravity of the victim’s injuries and the actions of the defendant. Before you sign a release of liability waiver and accept a settlement from an insurance company, speak to an attorney about how much your individual case is worth.

Proving Negligence in an Injury Claim

Establishing negligence in a successful personal injury case requires strong evidence. While you do not have to prove that the defendant was negligent beyond a reasonable doubt – the burden of proof in a criminal case – you or your lawyer do have to establish liability as more likely to be true than not true. You need clear and convincing evidence that the defendant is the person or party who is most likely responsible for your accident and the injuries that you are claiming.

First, you will need to identify the liable party or parties. These are the entities that are named as the defendant(s) in your lawsuit. Then, your lawyer can help you preserve and collect evidence from all available sources. This may include:

  • A copy of any police or accident reports
  • Physical evidence, such as from the scene of the accident
  • Photographs and video footage
  • Signed statements from eyewitnesses
  • Medical records and copies of x-rays
  • Personal property or vehicle damage
  • Accident reconstruction (done by experts)
  • Testimony from subject-matter experts
  • Records and documents, such as wage documents
  • Maintenance logs and cell phone records
  • Evidence of pain and suffering, such as an injury journal

The evidence that you find should not only support the argument that the defendant is at fault for your case but also refute any allegations of your own fault. This defense is known as comparative negligence and, if successful, it could reduce your settlement value in Colorado or even bar you from financial recovery.

If you are found to be more than 49 percent at fault for an accident, you are unable to recover any compensation. Even with a smaller percentage of fault allocated to you, this will reduce your settlement by a corresponding amount. The strength of your evidence is critical to the success of your case.
