Slips and falls don’t sound so bad. They certainly don’t sound as sinister as cancer, or as lethal as a shotgun. But more than 1 million people end up in the emergency room every year after slipping and falling. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, slip and falls cause 15 percent of all accidental deaths – trailing only behind auto accidents in terms of fatalities. They’re also the leading cause of workers’ compensation claims, missed workdays, and traumatic brain injuries.

Traffic accidents can be particularly deadly, especially in Colorado. Last year was the deadliest ever for Colorado drivers, as roadway deaths hit a 13-year high, after six years of increasing fatalities. Car accidents can not only be deadly, but have the potential cause major life altering injury to everyone involved.

Workplace injuries are the third-leading cause of personal injuries, most of which are caused by lifting or moving heavy objects or equipment. Bicycle accidents and product-related injuries round out the top five causes of personal injuries.

What is a Personal Injury?

Have you been in an auto accident?
Did your neighbor’s dog jump over the fence and bite you on the leg?
Has your child been hurt by defective toy?

In the eyes of the law, a personal injury is any injury to the body, mind or emotions, caused by another party’s actions – or inaction. These can be classified as either willful (intentional) or negligent. To hold someone legally liable for injuries, injured parties must prove that the other party:

  • Had a duty to act reasonably under to the circumstances.
  • Breached that duty.
  • Caused harm to the plaintiff.
  • Triggered monetary damages when the party breached its duty of care.
