Denver Medical Malpractice AttorneyHealth care professionals are required to provide medical treatment that falls within accepted and approved medical standards. When an anesthesia error is made by a Denver medical professional that results in injury or death, the health care provider may be held accountable for medical malpractice. Unfortunately, medical malpractice claims can be difficult and complicated. As such, it is important to discuss your legal options with an experienced Denver medical malpractice lawyer immediately. Time is of the essence; so don’t delay. In the State of Colorado, you only have 2 years from the date of the injury to file a claim. Anesthesia Medical Malpractice: Anesthesiologists, anesthetists, surgeons, medical staff, surgical nurses, as well as their support staff may make anesthesia errors. Additionally, any medical professional who administers or monitors anesthesia may commit an error that harms or kills the patient. Anesthesia errors or complications may occur prior to, during, or after surgery. These types of errors include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Dosage errors
  • Incorrect anesthesia
  • Administering medication that creates a harmful reaction in combination with the anesthesia
  • Failure to thoroughly examine the patient’s medical history
  • Administering insufficient amounts of anesthesia resulting in the patient experiencing the surgery but being unable to communicate this
Complications Caused by Anesthesia: Anesthesia complications are primarily caused by human error. Complications may include:
  • Heart failure
  • Stroke
  • Brain trauma
  • Collapsed lung
  • Infection
  • Organ trauma, organ dysfunction
  • Permanent disability
Wrongful Death Lawsuit If your spouse, child, parent or sibling lost their life in an anesthesia-related incident, you may pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. Damages may include funeral expenses, medical costs, lifetime projected lost income of the deceased, and more. Compensatory Damages for Anesthesia Errors: If you were injured by anesthesia errors or complications, you may seek monetary compensation for pain and suffering, past and future medical expenses, loss of income, projected costs of long term care, loss of consortium and other losses. Your personal injury attorney in Denver, Colorado will discuss your case with you and together you can review your options.

Wrongful deathOn Thursday, a wrongful death lawsuit was filed against a Glenwood Springs bar in Garfield District Court by the parents of a 16-year-old Carbondale girl who died in a road accident on Interstate 70 in Glenwood Canyon last spring.


The parents of Jennifer Nevarez said that the bartender of the Bayou Cajun Restaurant and bar served the underage driver alcohol prior to the crash. 18-year-old Brianda Zavala was driving the car; Nevarez was the passenger with another individual, 24-year-old Albino Ortiz-Monge. They all died in the accident that happened on 14th of April at about 5:30 a.m., three and a half hours after the bar’s 2 a.m. closing. The crash happened when the car crossed the center line in a construction zone and collided head-on with a semi-truck.


All three auto accident victims had a BAC level above the legal limit for driving when the crash happened. According to the patrol’s follow-up report, Zavala’s BAC level was 0.241%. Witnesses said the 3 may have continued drinking after leaving the bar.

In the lawsuit filed by Nevarez’s parents, they said that Pedro and Elda Nevarez, Zavala’s consumption of alcohol at the bar “caused, or was a substantial cause, of her being intoxicated in the morning hours — when the fatal incident occurred”.


26-year-old Denisse Arreola, who works as a bartender at the bar and was present at the bar that night was recently convicted in Garfield County Court on a misdemeanor charge for providing alcohol to an underage individual in relation to the incident. On 12th of September, Arreola pleaded no contest to the charge and according to a description of the plea in the court file; a “no contest” plea is not an admission of guilt. She said that she didn’t serve the underage individuals that night.


The case is still under investigation by the Colorado Liquor Enforcement Division for providing alcohol to Zavala and Nevarez illegally who were underage. Daria Serna, Colorado Department of Revenue/Liquor Enforcement spokeswoman said in an e-mail, “This is where the business explains to the state why action should not be taken against their liquor license. The next step will be the pre-hearing conference, but we are not there yet”.


Steve Behem, the owner of the bar didn’t comment on the case. He said that his Colorado attorney had not yet had a chance to review it and has advised him not to comment. He has decided to sell the restaurant and bar business. He said, “That’s a long time to be in this industry, and I can’t wait for the next chapter to begin”. On 18th of October, they will be having the last and 29th anniversary party of the bar.


Last year, the Bayou was reprimanded by liquor authorities for providing alcohol to underage individuals in June 2011 and November 2011. After that hearing, the liquor license of the bar was suspended for five years. The bar was also fined $939.


The Nevarez lawsuit requests a jury trial to determine damages.

Each year, over 30,000 people are killed in traffic accidents across the country. While the good news is that the number of highway fatalities has been trending downward in recent years, there are still far too many families who lose loved ones in these tragedies. In many cases, even when the victim ultimately dies, huge medical bills are racked up by efforts to save the person’s life, to say nothing of the wages lost over a lifetime if the victim was responsible for the financial well-being of a family. If your family’s loss was caused by the negligence of someone else, you may be entitled to financial compensation for these medical bills and lost wages, as well as funeral expenses and loss of companionship.

The driver arrested in connection with the death of a cyclist in Lyons has publicly criticized bicyclists, according to the Denver Post. As the Lyons Planning and Community Development Commission held town meetings concerning bike lanes on local streets, Patrick Ward occasionally appeared to make comments about cyclists “disobeying signage and traffic lights” as well as saying that “These people don’t belong in Lyons.” Ward was arrested after a traffic accident in which a cyclist was killed. Police believe that he was under the influence of alcohol at the time, and charged him with vehicular homicide, careless driving resulting in death, and DUI.

Every year, about 30,000 people are killed in traffic accidents across the United States, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Of those fatalities, between 500 and 1000 are bicyclists. While this number is comparatively low, it is certainly far too high for the hundreds of families that are left to mourn the loss of loved ones. It is extremely important for every cyclist to pay close attention to their surroundings and be constantly aware of traffic. On the other hand, it is also vital that every driver be aware of the possibility of cyclists and pedestrians in the area.

In addition to emotional trauma, the loss of a loved one in a tragic accident can result in serious financial hardship.

USA Today has issued a report about weather deaths in the United states. While tornadoes, hurricanes, and floods get the lion’s share of media attention, the majority of weather-related fatalities across the country occur when inclement weather causes car accidents. The Federal Highway Administration (FHA) says that over 7,000 people are killed in weather-related traffic crashes each year. They define a weather-related traffic crash as one that occurs in adverse weather: snow, heavy rain, ice, sleet, etc. Generally speaking, traffic accidents rarely make the news, outside of large, multi-vehicle pileups. Sheldon Drobot of the National Center for Atmospheric Research says that he would like to see a day when the increasingly advanced computer systems that cars have built in could share information, in order to help prevent some of these collisions. Have you or a loved one been seriously injured because of another driver’s carelessness? Speak with an experienced Denver auto accident attorney today to discuss your options. 7,000 fatalities per year due to weather-related traffic accidents is a tragically large number. In fact, it is roughly 20% of the more than 30,000 total traffic fatalities each year. This statistic really highlights the need for every driver to use caution when the weather turns bad. This means slowing down and allowing more following distance in bad conditions. It means allowing more time to get where you’re going. It means not allowing yourself to be in a rush, even if you’re running late. It may mean skipping trips in the car that aren’t necessary. All of these inconveniences are far less of a problem than a serious car accident in which someone is injured, or worse. john-fuller-personal-injury-attorneySpeak to dedicated, experienced Denver auto accident attorney John Fuller today if you or a loved one have been seriously injured in a Colorado car wreck.

Police-lightsThe Aspen Post reports that a woman has filed a civil claim against the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority as well as a bus driver following the death of her adult daughter in a public transportation accident. The daughter, who was walking in the bus lane in the early hours of the morning on New Years Day, was struck from behind by a bus, causing the windshield of the bus to shatter. The woman was dragged by the bus, and died as a result of the accident. The mother is seeking close to $500,000 in the claim, hoping to recover compensation for funeral expenses, loss of income, and loss of companionship. Have you or a loved one been injured in a public transportation accident? Contact an experienced Colorado public transportation accident attorney immediately; time is often of the essence. When filing a claim against a government agency such as a public transportation district, the statute of limitations is generally significantly shorter than it would be when filing a civil claim against a private person or company. For this reason, acting as quickly as possible to protect your rights is vital. While it is unusual for a government agency to be found responsible for injuring a person, when this does happen, you don’t want to lose your rights. No one should have to suffer financial hardship on top of physical injury because of the negligent actions of a government agency or a government employee. john-fuller-personal-injury-attorneyContact the dedicated Denver public transportation accident attorneys at Fuller Law today if you or a loved one have been seriously injured in a bus accident.

JasonCam20111209 164Car accidents are a daily part of life in Colorado, with millions of car accidents occurring annually across the country. Understandably, many people get nervous when they are involved in a car accident. Knowing what to do after a car accident can be difficult in the best of times, but when someone is injured, the police are involved, and people are getting emotional, it can be very difficult to know how to react, and doing the wrong thing by mistake can be very easy. When the an accident results in serious injuries, it is a good idea to speak with an experienced Denver car accident lawyer. Here are some frequently asked questions about Colorado car accident.

Q: If I am in a car accident, and the police come, should I talk to them?

A: Yes, you should speak to the police. There is no need to tell the police more than simply the facts of the accident. You should not say anything that indicates blame; don’t accept blame for the accident, and don’t accuse anyone else of fault in the accident. The accident reports that police officers take are not always accurate, but it is best not to give the police a reason to think badly of you, either by claiming responsibility or by blaming someone else. A dedicated Denver car accident lawyer can often conduct an independent investigation, and demonstrate the facts of the case, even if the police officer got them wrong.

Q: Do I have to tell my insurance company about my car accident?

A: Yes, you do need to notify your insurance company. When it comes to insurance, in many cases the less you say the better, particularly when it comes to the other driver’s insurance company. This is another example of why it is a good idea to speak with a Denver car accident lawyer who can help ensure that nothing that is said to the insurance company is twisted in order to be used against you.

Q: What should I do if the car insurance company won’t pay my claim?

A: Unfortunately, it is standard practice at some insurance companies to simply deny large claims in order to protect their own bottom line. The claim you filed after your car accident has been denied, or if they are offering you a settlement that you don’t believe will cover the cost of the accident, speak with a dedicated Denver car accident attorney to discuss your options. John Fuller can help you understand your rights, and ensure that you receive the full, fair value of your insurance claim.
