Personal Injury Attorneys Serving Lakewood

Many people have lived in Lakewood for years, some long enough to remember when it initially made the transition from a Denver suburban community to a city in its own right in 1969. Originally called Jefferson City, because of its location in Jefferson County, the city quickly decided to change its name to Lakewood, which better reflects its landscape of small lakes peppered at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.

Product Liability

Although all goods sold in the United States are supposed to be subject to rigorous safety testing, sometimes dangerous or defective products make their way onto store shelves. When those dangerous products cause serious injuries or harm to consumers, anyone in the chain of distribution may be held accountable. This includes the companies that designed, manufactured, distributed, and sold the dangerous product. Product liability cases are often extremely complex, and resourceful companies will put up an aggressive defense to avoid compensating you for your injuries. However, the product liability attorneys at The Sawaya Law Firm are well versed in these types of cases and will fight hard to seek justice for you.

Slip-and-Fall Accidents

You shouldn’t have to risk injury when stepping into a building or other place of business in Lakewood. In fact, those who own or occupy such facilities have a duty to keep them in reasonably safe condition for that very reason.

The personal injury attorneys at The Sawaya Law Firm have extensive experience representing people who have slipped or tripped and been injured due to unsafe conditions on someone else’s property.
