Your Trusted Denver Personal Injury Lawyer

When you are injured through no fault of your own, it takes an experienced personal injury attorney to make sure you are compensated for every aspect of your loss.  The insurance companies involved, including yours, will try to pay you as little as possible.  They may try to argue that you were not really hurt, or even blame you for your injuries.  They will try to pay you less than you deserve.

Alan Shafner, our lead attorney, has been representing clients in personal injury claims in Colorado for over 43 years.  He has handled some of Colorado’s highest profile cases and successfully recovered millions of dollars for clients through settlement and trial.  His expertise is recognized by Super Lawyers, National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Trial Lawyers, and The American Board of Trial Advocates.  If appropriate, he consults with a wide network of professional associates to make sure every client has the best possible outcome.

When you hire Shafner Injury Law, you can expect the professionalism and competence of a large organization joined with the personal touch of a small law firm.  We don’t do assembly-line representation.  By settlement or trial if necessary, we fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
