Serious Personal Injury - Construction Defect Lawyer Denver - Colorado Burg Simpson Our homes are a refuge – a place where we and our loved ones should be safe from harm. Nevertheless, thousands of homeowners and their family members suffer serious personal injury or death because of construction defects every year. If you’ve been injured because of a construction defect, you could be entitled to compensation for lost wages and medical expenses, as well as pain and suffering.

Our Construction Defect and Bad Faith Insurance Litigation groups work together to represent homeowners engaged in insurance disputes arising from construction defects. Insurance disputes can involve an insurance company:

  • Misrepresenting the relevant facts or insurance policy provisions.
  • Failing to investigate a claim.
  • Not recognizing a claim.
  • Declining to pay a claim.
  • Refusing to pay a claim quickly.
  • Discouraging a claimant from hiring legal representation.
  • Rejecting a potential claim settlement.
  • Not properly defending their insured against a lawsuit.

There are ways you can communicate better with your insurance company, such as:

  • Asking your adjuster to confirm – in writing – all information requests.
  • Providing you insurance company with as much information as possible about your incident.
  • Questioning your carrier about why they might need information you’re unsure about.
  • Getting all promises and representations in writing.
  • Taking a polite, proactive approach to any discussions.
  • Challenging the insurance company’s adjustment estimates, even if they’re produced by an algorithm. It’s always a good idea to secure independent estimates, too.
  • Getting your insurance company to clarify anything you’re unclear about. In general, don’t be afraid to ask questions.
  • Reaching out to a lawyer trained in insurance law.

Unfortunately, insurance companies that are acting in bad faith aren’t always willing to negotiate. If your insurance carrier forces your case into litigation, the Denver construction defect attorneys at Burg Simpson have decades of court room experience. If you suspect that an insurance company is acting in bad faith by refusing to live up to their promises and provide you the reimbursement owed to you, you could be entitled to file a bad faith claim against your insurance company. Call a construction defects lawyer at Burg Simpson before it’s too late at 303-792-5595.

We also represent homeowners who’ve suffered a serious injury or whose loved one has been killed because of a construction defect. Serious personal injury claims can arise from a variety of construction defects, including:

  • Building collapse.
  • Landslides.
  • Rock falls.
  • Fires and explosions.
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Private roadway failures.
  • Electrocution.
  • Balcony or deck failures.
  • Falling ice.

If you’ve suffered an injury from any of these sources, we will effectively represent you. Burg Simpson has extensive experience negotiating with the insurance companies for construction companies. Our experience as construction defect attorneys helps our injured clients because we understand the obligations of construction companies.

Too many homeowners suffer injuries due to construction defects or fire, leading them to turn to insurance companies for help. Only to then be left in the cold as the insurance companies pull out obscure policy exclusions. Our litigation lawyers have taken on some of the biggest insurers. We have the experience to effectively protect your interests.

Burg Simpson’s Denver personal injury lawyers, legal assistants, and support staff will take a look at every case and sift through a variety of criteria to determine the validity of your particular personal injury case. These can include:

  • The nature and extent of the personal injury.
  • The extent of each party’s liability.
  • The potential economic loss the victim suffered, based on a variety of factors.
  • Anticipated future medical needs.
  • Evidence of pre-existing medical conditions that might mitigate the value of the case and available insurance.

The types of damages that can be recovered include economic, non-economic and even punitive damages. Get in touch with us as soon as possible at 303-792-5595 to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation related to your insurance dispute, catastrophic injury claim or wrongful death lawsuit.
