Our Thornton Personal Injury Lawyer Practice Areas
At The Sawaya Law Firm, our personal injury attorneys have a special compassion for people who have been injured in accidents due to someone else’s negligence. We know how stressful and scary it can be to fight your way back from a serious injury, and we don’t want our clients to shoulder the added burden of fighting for their rights.

Our experienced attorneys manage all types of cases throughout Colorado, including:
It doesn’t matter how careful of a driver you are, you can’t control the actions of others. Each year in Thornton and throughout Colorado, thousands of people are hurt in car accidents that could have possibly been prevented. Distracted and dangerous drivers put the lives of everyone on the road at risk. For three decades, The Sawaya Law Firm has fought for the rights of crash victims who are in desperate need of compensation for their injuries. An experienced Thornton car accident attorney have built their careers on a heritage of justice for our clients. We treat every client with the utmost respect and compassion, so if you are a Thornton car accident victim trying to cope with debilitating injuries, contact us today to discuss your options for seeking compensation.
The legal weight for an 18-wheeler is 80,000 pounds. Compare that to the average 4,000-pound car, and it’s obvious why truck accidents can cause such catastrophic injuries. Victims of truck accidents often face an uphill battle to “get back to normal,” and many struggle with serious, life-altering injuries such as traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and spinal cord injuries (SCI). The Thornton truck accident lawyers at The Sawaya Law Firm understand the complications these victims are facing, and we are dedicated to pursuing justice for them. If you have suffered injuries in a truck accident, contact us today to review the details of your case and talk about how you may be able to seek compensation.
With the beautiful backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, Thornton and the other Colorado cities sprinkled along the I-25 corridor are picturesque places to ride a motorcycle. Yet the feeling of freedom that comes with riding on the open road can be stolen in an instant by a carelessness or negligent driver. When a motorcyclist is hit by a much larger, heavier vehicle, the resulting injuries can be devastating. At The Sawaya Law Firm, we have represented motorcycle accident victims throughout Colorado for decades, and we demand respect for their rights and compensation for their injuries. If you or a loved one is coping with injuries after a motorcycle accident, contact us now.
In Thornton, we pride ourselves in our open spaces and our active, outdoor lifestyles. In fact, our city is pleased to offer 20 miles of on-street bike lanes for those who want to save on gas and let their legs do the work. However, no amount of planning could prepare a bicyclist or pedestrian for a careless or negligent driver. Accidents involving pedestrians or bicyclists can lead to some of the most serious injuries, and many victims may never recover. These types of personal injury cases require a special type of lawyer, one who understands the devastating nature of the accident and is prepared to handle these often complicated claims. If you are dealing with injuries from a bicycle or pedestrian accident, contact us now to discuss how we may be able to seek compensation for you.
When you enter a building or step onto a commercial property in Thornton, you have a right to assume the business owner maintains a reasonable standard of safety. If not, serious injuries such as those suffered in slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents can occur. The skilled premises liability attorneys at The Sawaya Law Firm have extensive experience investigating these types of accidents and representing people who have been hurt due to unsafe property conditions. Contact us now to talk about how we may be able to seek compensation for your injuries.
When an injury on the job leaves you unable to work, the pressure to get back on your feet and earning a paycheck can be extreme. Workers’ compensation insurance is designed to cover you during times like this and provide benefits to help with doctor bills and lost wages. However, securing benefits is not always as easy as it should be. Sometimes you need the help of an experienced Thornton workers’ compensation lawyer to step in and fight for your rights. At The Sawaya Law Firm, our attorneys have extensive experience navigating the complex workers’ compensation system, and we will pursue full and fair compensation for your injury.
To many people who have spent years working and paying into the Social Security system, it can be a shock to be denied Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits in their time of need. Yet in Thornton and across the United Sates, many initial applications are rejected. That’s when you should enlist the assistance of a disability benefits lawyer at The Sawaya Law Firm. Our attorneys understand the ins and outs of the SSD system and can help you pursue the benefits you need and deserve. Contact us today to go over your claim and decide the next step to take in your pursuit of SSD benefits.
At The Sawaya Law Firm, we are proud to represent those Thornton residents who bravely served our country.

It’s not just dangerous drugs that make their way onto store shelves. Despite rigorous safety testing, dangerous and defective products of all types wind up in the hands of unsuspecting consumers. And when an injury results from the use of such dangerous products, any company involved in the chain of distribution could be held responsible. If you’re a Thornton resident who has been hurt by a dangerous or defective product, you may be able to pursue compensation through a product liability lawsuit. Contact the product liability lawyers at The Sawaya Law Firm to discuss the details of your case and review your options for seeking compensation for your injuries.
If a drug is prescribed by a doctor or offered in an over-the-counter form at a store, we usually assume it’s safe. Unfortunately, surprise side effects and unexpected interactions can cause serious injuries. Don’t discount your injuries if you have been hurt by a dangerous drug. Contact The Sawaya Law Firm’s Thornton personal injury lawyers today so we can discuss what happened to you. Drug manufacturers have a duty to produce safe products and warn about side effects, and our lawyers have a duty to protect our clients.
When you lose a loved one, it often feels like a part of you is lost, too. Especially when the loss was unexpected and due to someone else’s negligence, it’s all you can do sometimes to just get through the day. At The Sawaya Law Firm, our compassionate attorneys are sensitive to the pain you are experiencing, and we want to help. We know that funeral expenses and the loss of a household income can weigh heavily on a family, so we may recommend easing the burden by filing a wrongful death claim. If you are a Thornton resident who has lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, give us a call or contact us online to schedule a time to discuss your situation.
