Colorado Personal Injury Lawyers
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, have suffered a slip and fall, or are the victim of a vicious dog bite, you may have a personal injury claim. Or, perhaps a loved one has died in an accident due to the negligence of another, or you or a family member are suffering from the side effects of a dangerous drug or defective medical device. You may have even suffered a workplace accident which does not fall under workers’ comp.
If you are in the Denver, Colorado area, and you are looking for help after an accident with injuries, the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya can help.

We help those throughout the Denver and Northern Colorado areas with the following:
A Denver, Colorado car accident can change your life forever. When a negligent driver causes an accident, he or she is liable for your injuries from the accident. You may find yourself unable to return to work for weeks, months, or even forever, thus unable to pay your regular monthly expenses, let alone your medical costs related to the accident. At the same time, you may find the insurance company is being anything but helpful and may even be asking you to accept a small settlement which will not cover your injuries or may not be offering anything at all. This is a time in your life when you desperately need someone in your corner—someone who will fight aggressively for the compensation you need and deserve. When you are facing serious injuries with long-term consequences through no fault of your own, Dianne Sawaya can help. Dianne is both a skilled negotiator and a tough litigator, which ensures all bases are covered and that you receive the right outcome for you. Car accident injuries can leave you stressed out, anxious and frustrated; however, the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya can truly help with your Colorado car accident. Dianne Sawaya is a car accident attorney you can trust.
Semi Truck Attorneys
If you have been involved in a large commercial truck accident, the results are likely devastating. Semi-trucks, by virtue of their large size and weight are much more likely to cause fatalities or catastrophic injuries which can alter your future in ways you could never have imagined. When you contact the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya following your truck accident, the investigation process will begin immediately. We are highly experienced in truck accidents, understanding there may be more than one defendant in your case. Perhaps the truck driver was negligent—distracted, impaired or reckless. Or, perhaps the trucking company hired an inexperienced driver or failed to complete a thorough background check on the driver. The loading company may have been lax during the loading, causing the cargo to shift or come off the trailer, causing an accident. The truck maintenance company may not have properly maintained the truck, particularly the brakes and tires. Finally, the manufacturer of the truck or truck parts could be liable if a defective part caused the accident. Because there can be more than one defendant, and because the injuries resulting from a truck accident are likely to be so severe, your truck accident attorney must have experience with truck accidents. At the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya, we have that experience and will use it to your advantage.
We also have the experience to deal with motorcycle accidents, which come with their own set of complexities. Like those hit by a large commercial truck, a motorcyclist is often left with severe injuries, requiring a lifetime of medical interventions. Dianne Sawaya can help you recover physically, emotionally and financially. For an experienced Denver, Colorado motorcycle attorney, contact the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya.
A wrongful death occurs when a person dies due to the negligence of another person or entity. While money will never replace the life you had with a loved one, it can ease your financial future, particularly when the deceased was the primary wage earner. A wrongful death can result in funeral expenses, medical expenses, car repairs and many more unexpected expenses. A wrongful death can be the result of an auto accident, a truck or motorcycle accident, a defective medical device, a dangerous drug, medical negligence, nursing home abuse or neglect, a dangerous construction site, a defective product, or a violent death. At the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya, we can help you recover the compensation you need and deserve following the wrongful death of a loved one.
Premises liability accidents can lead to serious injuries due to the carelessness or negligence of the owner of the property. Property owners must keep their property safe—or warn others when a hazard exists. If you or a loved one have been the victim of a slip and fall, a dog bite, or another hazardous condition on someone’s property, you could be entitled to payment for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, physical or mental disability or diminished quality of life. At the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya, we believe in personal attention for every single client. We have the skills to carefully build your premise liability case, and we excel at negotiating with insurance companies, ensuring you receive the reimbursement you deserve. For a premise liability accident with resulting injuries, the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya can help.
Although we never want to think a pet could harm us, unfortunately, sometimes they do. If another person’s pet has attacked you or your loved one, you probably truly understand just how dangerous some pets—particularly certain dogs—can be. Such an attack can leave families in pain. Children and the elderly are the most likely to suffer serious injury from a dog bite, and this type of trauma is not easily overcome. The Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya can help ensure you receive compensation for your injuries following a dog attack.
When we go to work each day, we expect our employer will be looking out for our safety, Unfortunately, a safe working environment is not something everyone can depend on. When you are injured in the workplace, you may face financial and physical debilitation. The workers’ compensation attorneys from the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya will help you get an equitable settlement following your workplace accident. We understand what a difficult time this is for you, and we are also aware that Colorado workers’ compensation laws can be quite complex. Dianne Sawaya will fight for you following your workplace injuries, helping you fully understand the entire process.
Product liability claims usually fall into three categories—defectively manufactured products, defectively designed products and products which do not included adequate warnings or instructions for proper use—often known as defective marketing claims. Your product liability claim could be against the manufacturer of the product, the retailer of the product or any number of supplies, wholesalers or distributors in between. To be successful in a product liability claim you must prove that 1) you have suffered specific damages (injuries) as a result of the defective or dangerous products, 2) that the product either lacked proper warnings or was defective or dangerous, 3) that the lack of warnings or the defect or danger was the cause of your injuries, and 4) that you were injured while using the defective or dangerous product. You may be entitled to compensatory damages, punitive damages, or both. Compensatory damages are meant to “restore” you to the condition you were in prior to the injury, and include economic losses such as medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering. If a jury should find the defendant acted in a particularly egregious manner, you could also be entitled to punitive damages. Punitive damages are meant to punish the defendant for the conduct which caused your injuries, as well as to deter others from engaging in similar conduct. If you have been injured by a dangerous or defective product, Dianne Sawaya can help you. The Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya believe you deserve a strong advocate in your corner, and we want to be there for you.
Burns, Explosions and Electrocution Injuries
Burn injuries can be among the most devastating type of injury, resulting in significant pain—sometimes for life—as well as disfigurement and scarring, which can lead to emotional distress nd embarrassment. Burns can result from car accidents, chemicals, explosions or electrical systems (electrocutions). Burns can be classified as first-degree, second-degree, third-degree or fourth-degree, with fourth-degree burns being the most serious (usually fatal). Recovering from burn injuries can be a painful, intensive process, requiring multiple surgical procedures and physical therapy. The process can last months, years, or a lifetime. If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic burn injury and need long-term help, the burn injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya can get you the help you need, both medically and financially. We can put you in touch with an entire network of expert physicians and medical professionals to get you started on the path to recovery.
More than two million head injuries occur each year. While most of these injuries are minor, and the person recovers fully, others are traumatic brain injuries which can cause a lifetime of problems. A head injury can include a concussion, which can be minor or much more serious. A closed head injury occurs when the head comes into contact with a hard object, causing the brain to bounce against the hard skull bones. A penetrating head injury occurs when a high-velocity object breaks through the skull, entering the brain. There are many adverse symptoms of a traumatic brain injury, including chronic headaches, blurry vision, dizziness, amnesia, vision loss, short-term memory loss, disorientation, inability to concentrate, depression, anxiety, irritability, personality changes, insomnia and loss of appetite. Falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries, followed by being struck by or against an object and motor vehicle crashes. At the Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya, we offer honest answers and dedicated advocacy for victims of brain injuries and their families. We will help you find the medical specialists and rehabilitative services you need, while fighting to obtain the maximum compensation for your future.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries can range from relatively minor to extremely serious. Bulging or herniated discs, pinched nerves, numbness and paralysis are all potential complications of a spinal cord injury. There are many causes of spinal cord injuries, including car, truck and motorcycle accidents, construction accidents, birth injuries and medical malpractice injuries. Spinal cord injuries can cause long-term issues which can keep you from returning to your normal job for weeks, months, or even forever. You may require assistive devices to help you get through your day-to-day life, and you may require many years of medical procedures and rehabilitative therapies, which can be extremely expensive.
