At The Evans Firm, we passionately represent individuals in Centennial, Arapahoe County, and the Denver-Metro area who have lost their loved ones in an instance of wrongful death. Our Centennial wrongful death attorney has plenty of experience handling these types of loss claims, enabling our firm to take on even the most complex cases. In the last 8 years he has conducted over 58 jury trials to verdict, achieving many successful results.

A person may be prosecuted criminally for causing a person's death (whether in the form of murder, manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, or some other theory). That same person can also be sued civilly in a wrongful death action (as in the O. J. Simpson murder case). In Colorado, unlike other jurisdictions, there is no common law right to recover civil damages for the wrongful death of a person. Rather, it is purely statutory. The Colorado Wrongful Death Act is the only recourse available to recover financially after the loss of a loved one through the negligence of another. Colorado is very specific about whom may be the plaintiff – or who may sue. Usually it is the spouse or children, but it is controlled by statutory guidelines. See our F.A.Q. page.

There are two main claims a plaintiff may bring in Colorado 1) wrongful death; and 2) survival. The two are separate claims, and not mutually exclusive (however should be brought together in one action if possible). Wrongful death law is complex, and there are many issues about damages and standing that a person needs an experienced attorney like Michael D. Evans to be successful. He has been featured nationally in publications and media including TIME Magazine, The ABA Journal, The New York Times, CNN, The Wall Street Journal, CNBC, MSN, NPR, The Denver Post, CPR, The Huffington Post, BuzzFeed, and many others and knows how to get the best results possible - which has resulted in having many satisfied clients with an A+ rating with the BBB, a 10/10 AVVO rating, ranked in the Top 40 Under 40 Criminal Defense Lawyers, and 2015 Client's Choice Award.

We believe that no individual should have to suffer the pain and emotional trauma brought on by the negligence of another, and we fight tirelessly to pursue justice on behalf of wrongful death victims. Contact us today or submit a case evaluation form.
