Welcome to the Personal Injury and Motorcyle Accident Website of
McDermott Law, LLC

With more than 30 years of combined legal experience, our personal injury attorneys have the experience needed to build each of our clients the strongest possible personal injury cases to ensure that they have the best chances of securing the maximum possible compensation for their injuries and losses.

Our extensive knowledge of the law, litigation experience and dedication to our clients results in our ability to effectively handle, negotiate or litigate personal injury claims. When working with our respected legal professionals, you can rest assured that:

  • At every stage of the legal process, our Denver personal injury lawyers will be standing up for your rights and entitlements.
  • You are getting the best possible representation for your claim.
  • You have the best chances of resolving your case as favorably and efficiently as possible.


The insurance company for the responsible person or entity who caused an injury is counting on the fact you may not hire an attorney to handle your claim.  If the claim cannot be resolved and a lawsuit must be pursued, they will retain an experienced lawyer to fight your claim.  The insurance claim process is not set up to provide you fair compensation.  If you do not retain the services of an equally talented attorney, you may be overwhelmed by the process and recover far less than what you are entitled to receive.  The attorneys at McDermott Law have 30 years of combined experience in a case just like yours. 


Some of the specific types of personal injury cases that we can successfully resolve include those that involve:

The Denver personal injury lawyers at McDermott Law are experienced at representing individuals with claims that involve car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, slip and fall accidents and wrongful death.

The Denver personal injury lawyers at McDermott Law are experienced at representing individuals with claims that involve car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, slip and fall accidents and wrongful death claims.

Car Accidents

Every 10 seconds, a car accident takes place in the U.S., and more than 90 percent of all car accidents are caused, at least in part, by some form of human error. If you have been injured in a car accident that may have been caused by another driver’s negligent or reckless behavior, our Denver car accident lawyers can help defend your rights and ensure that you are able to obtain the compensation you need and deserve.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle riders are about 35 times more likely than occupants of passenger vehicles to be involved in fatal traffic accidents. However, even when motorcycle accidents are not fatal, they can still leave riders with crippling, long-term injuries. Our Denver motorcycle accident lawyers have extensive experience litigating motorcycle accident lawsuits and encourage injured riders to let us help them assert their rights to compensation.

Truck Accidents

When truck accidents occur, the results can be devastating for drivers of passenger vehicles, motorcycle riders, pedestrians or others involved. Depending on the circumstances of the truck accident in question, our Denver truck accident lawyers may be able to hold truck drivers, trucking companies and/or the insurance companies for trucking corporations legally accountable for victims’ injuries and losses.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are types of premises liability claims in which a property owner or manager may be held liable for victims’ injuries. However, slip and fall cases can be tricky in that plaintiffs have to be able to prove that the property owner or manager was aware of the dangerous situation and failed to properly fix it. Our Denver slip and fall accident lawyers have extensive experience building premises liability cases and will diligently fight for victims’ rights to compensation both inside and outside of court.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Car accidents and falls are the leading causes of traumatic brain injuries, and each year, approximately 1.7 million Americans are newly diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury that may have been caused by another person’s or party’s negligence, our Denver traumatic brain injury lawyers can help you defend your rights to compensation in a TBI personal injury lawsuit.

Wrongful Death Claims

Losing a loved one in any type of accident that may have been caused by another party’s negligence is both tragic and devastating. Although no amount of money can ever compensate you for such a terrible loss, pursing a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party can help you secure the financial support you may need during such difficult times. Our Denver wrongful death lawyers are skilled at helping families secure the compensation they need and deserve so they can focus on getting closure and moving on with their lives.
