Littleton, Colorado, Personal Injury Attorneys
Helping victims and their families get the compensation they deserve.
The personal injury lawyers of Miller & Steiert understand the problems that injured people face. We know that a serious injury does more than damage only the body. An injury can cause stress, upend finances and call futures into question.

Seeking Compensation for Personal Injuries
At Miller & Steiert, we believe that individuals, governmental entities and businesses that wrongfully injure others should be held accountable for their behavior. We help accident injury victims recover the fair compensation they deserve for medical expenses, lost earnings and earning capacity, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. Where a defendant has intentionally injured another, additional damages may be awarded to punish the wrongdoer.
One of our attorneys can help hold the negligent party liable for damages and help you collect fair compensation in your case.
The Miller & Steiert Approach to Personal Injury Law
Because of the costly and time-consuming nature of personal injury litigation, the firm limits its personal injury practice to meritorious cases involving serious injury or wrongful death. As a result, we are able to focus our attention on the cases we do take. We are committed to each of our clients, and we are not willing to sacrifice that personal service to generate a greater output of cases.
We handle all types of personal injury lawsuits, including those involving the following:
- Car and trucking accidents
- Dangerous properties
- Defective products, including medical products
- Insurance claims
- Chiropractic malpractice
We accept cases on a contingent fee basis. We will not take attorneys' fees unless our client receives compensation.
Serious and Catastrophic Injuries
People who sustain severe injuries need great help and support. The medical expenses are almost always high and victims could need a long time away from work. Even if the injuries are not permanent, the road to recovery is long, difficult and often lonely.
The attorneys of Miller & Steiert are committed to helping people with severe injuries by providing the legal services they need to get back on their feet and on with their lives. We handle serious injury cases such as:
- Shoulder Pain Pump Injuries
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Closed head injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
Our firm is one of the few firms in Colorado with experience and expertise in handling cases involving shoulder injuries caused by the use of pain pumps during arthroscopic shoulder surgery. The medicine delivered during shoulder surgery can actually destroy the surrounding cartilage. This damage is called Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis (PAGCL). If you or a member of your family suffers from PAGCL, we have the skill, experience and resources to recover the compensation you deserve.
Chiropractic and Medical Malpractice
Chiropractic injuries often result when the chiropractor fails to examine the patient thoroughly and to develop a diagnosis and treatment plan properly. However, injury can also result from overly aggressive treatment. Chiropractic malpractice may cause herniated discs, vertebral artery dissection, brain stem infarction, stroke, paralysis and death. If you sustained an injury because of an incompetent chiropractor, contact our office for a consultation.
Serious injuries and even death can also occur as a result of malpractice committed by a physician or by the staff of a hospital or other health care facility. If you suffer a serious injury or complications, or have a loved one who dies as a result of substandard treatment by a physician or other health care provider, we have the experience, expertise and resources to aggressively and effectively prosecute such claims and obtain full and fair compensation to the limits allowed by law. At Miller & Steiert, P.C., we feel strongly that doctors and hospitals should be held to the same standards of competence to which others are held. If you feel that substantial treatment by a doctor, hospital, or other health care provider has harmed you, contact our office for a consultation.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Because carbon monoxide in its pure form is colorless, odorless and tasteless, the gas can injure and kill a person without warning. Carbon monoxide is generated by many innocuous sources, but it commonly comes from defective or poorly maintained furnaces and improperly installed gas appliances. The likely consequences of gas poisoning are either severe brain injury or death.
If you have been injured because of carbon monoxide poisoning, or if you have lost a loved one, Miller & Steiert can help.
The death of a loved one is perhaps the most traumatic experience anyone must face in life. When a person dies because of the actions or negligence of another, the tragedy is magnified. One of the hardest things to do while grieving is to contemplate a lawsuit. But while we must all feel sympathy for the survivors, the greatest need is to ensure the security of their futures.
Our firm handles many wrongful death cases. We can help obtain the compensation you need from the person or entity that caused the death in order to secure your financial future and grant you at least some measure of closure.
