Client Endorsements

  • When I hired McCormick & Murphy, they immediately took action, and fought to get my medical bills paid, and to recover fair compensation for the injuries I had suffered. When the fight was over, McCormick & Murphy had recovered 10 times more than the insurance company had offered to pay me for my injuries. I highly recommend McCormick & Murphy

  • Even though I lost my ability to earn a living due a serious head injury, neither the insurance company of the driver who hit me or my own insurance company offered to pay for the lost wages that I would lose over my life time. McCormick & Murphy fought for my rights, and eventually collected over $1,000,000.00 for me. I highly recommend McCormick & Murphy.
    Review by: Brian Located: Pueblo
  • I hired McCormick & Murphy to fight for my rights, and after years of fighting with my insurance company, McCormick & Murphy took my case to trial, and a jury awarded over $400,000.00 to me for the way my insurance company had treated me. I highly recommend the law firm of McCormick & Murphy.

Our Colorado Springs Personal Injury Practice Areas

Our lawyers have years of experience in personal injury law and are able to represent our clients who have been involved in a range of accidents and suffered a myriad of injury types. Our personal injury practice areas include:

  • Car accidents. Car crashes are a leading cause of injury and death in Colorado. Our lawyers can help you to navigate the car accident claims process, negotiate a settlement, gather evidence, and prove fault. We know how devastating and life-changing serious crashes are. 

  • Wrongful death. There are few things more traumatizing than losing a loved one in a catastrophic accident. If your spouse, child, parent, or another relative upon whom you were dependent has been killed in an accident caused by another’s negligence, our Colorado Springs personal injury lawyers can assist you in bringing forth a wrongful death action for damages.

  • Slip and fall accidents. Slips, trips, and falls can be devastating and are one of the leading causes of death for elderly persons nationwide. In many cases, slip and falls are the results of a dangerous or hazardous condition on a property that goes un-remedied. When a dangerous condition exists that leads to an injury, the property owner can be held liable for damages to the victim in a premises liability claim, a type of personal injury case. 

  • Motorcycle accidents. Cycling is a wonderful, healthy way to get around, but it can also be dangerous. In the event that a cyclist is struck by a motor vehicle, the damages suffered by the cyclist can be extremely severe, including permanently disabling injuries, lost wages, and high medical costs. Our lawyers can represent you in your suit for damages. 

  • Traumatic brain injuries. The brain is one of the body’s most critical organs, but it is also one of the most fragile. If the brain is penetrated, hit with force, or deprived of oxygen, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) may result. A TBI can be permanent and life-changing, resulting in long-term damages for the affected individual and their family members. 

  • Dog bites and attacks. Being attacked by a dog is incredibly terrifying, and may not only lead to immediate and acute injuries, but also a long-term fear of dogs and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). If you or a loved one has been attacked by a dog, our law firm can help you to hold the dog’s owner liable for your damages.

Damages Recoverable in a Personal Injury Claim

Bringing forth a personal injury claim can be intimidating, but it is often the only way to recover monetary compensation for the harm that someone has suffered as a direct result of someone else’s negligence. While the types and amounts of damages that are available in a personal injury claim vary on a case-by-case basis, types of damages in general include:

  • Medical expenses. You deserve to be compensated for all of the medical expenses that you incur related to your accident and injury, including all future medical expenses.

  • Lost wages. Have you had to miss work as a result of your injuries and has missing work resulted in lost wages and benefits? Has your injury caused a short- or long-term loss of earning capacity? If so, we can advocate for your right to compensation for the full value of present and future lost wages you’ve incurred.

  • Property damage expenses. It is not uncommon for a victim of a serious accident to experience property damage losses in addition to physical injuries. If you have incurred property damage expenses, we’ll fight for compensation on your behalf.

  • Noneconomic losses. The above types of damages are all economic in nature, meaning that losses are calculated based on actual value. However, you may also seek compensation for the value of your noneconomic losses, such as the value of your pain, emotional distress, suffering, disability, loss of quality of life, etc.

  • Damages for permanent physical impairment.
