Since the firm's inception, Godin & Baity has been handling large personal injury cases for a variety of commercial entities and national retailers. Our personal injury lawyers have extensive experience handling claims involving wrongful death, catastrophic injuries, and property damage. Our experience in these areas can help you determine whether a claim should be settled or tried.
Personal injury claims involve both liability and damage analysis. At Godin & Baity we recognize that, for example, an automobile accident involves a determination of the impact that accident had on the passengers, as well as an analysis of the medical treatments obtained, and the mitigating factors, including pre-existing medical conditions, that may lessen the alleged damages. This analysis, recognizing the importance of every detail available, resulted in a defense verdict for a client recently after a two and a half week jury trial. The plaintiff had demanded well in excess of a million dollars.
Similarly, in a premises liability case, where a person slips while shopping in a department store, the analysis includes a determination of whether that store had notice of an alleged dangerous condition that caused the patron to slip, in conjunction with the treatment received. In a recent premises liability case, we succeeded on a summary judgment motion where our client had no notice of an alleged dangerous condition, resulting in dismissal of all claims against our client.
We work with qualified reconstructionists, toxicologists, physicians, rehabilitation specialists, and economists to aggressively protect our clients. We are well-versed in Colorado personal injury law including regulatory and legal issues relevant to motor vehicles, premises liability, negligence, and wrongful death.
At Godin & Baity, we know that the fact that an incident occurred does not automatically equate to liability, and we work hard to absolve our clients of such allegations of liability. To the extent liability exists, we provide the highest attention to detail to ensure our clients pay only reasonable damages for their actual liability.
