There is nothing more painful than watching a loved one die, but it hurts even more when the negligence of a person or company caused it. In Denver, a wrongful death claim can be filed if you believe someone should be held liable. Whether your family member died due to a slip-and-fall accident or a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation. This is a serious matter and having a team that knows the law is imperative. The lawyers at Allman, Mitzner & Fawley, LLC, have over 30 years of experience with wrongful death cases. They can help you get results.

Colorado has specific laws that determine who can file a wrongful death claim. The spouse is the only one who can file a claim in the first year after the death.

It is important to act quickly because of the time limits. Our team understands the law and knows how to get things done efficiently and effectively.
