Wrongful Death Lawyers in Denver

The loss of a loved one can be emotionally devastating, especially when someone’s careless actions cause it. At Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C., our Denver, Colorado, wrongful death attorneys will ensure the responsible party is held accountable for the financial and emotional damage they have caused.

Seeking Justice and Financial Relief

When someone else's negligent conduct leads to the death of a family member, you have the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. While no lawsuit can fully replace the presence and companionship of your loved one, it can help alleviate the financial burden caused by their sudden loss.

To succeed in a wrongful death suit, you must establish that the other person's careless actions caused the accident resulting in your loved one's death. Additionally, specific rules govern who can initiate these lawsuits and the types of damages that can be sought.

Navigating these unique challenges and circumstances can be daunting, which is why enlisting the help of a Denver wrongful death lawyer can significantly enhance your chances of a successful case.


Damages in a wrongful death lawsuit are meant to address the costs and impact of a person’s sudden and unexpected death. These may include funeral expenses and any medical care your loved one received immediately prior to death.

If your loved one contributed to your family’s finances, you may also recover compensation to make up for the support and assistance you and your family might have expected from the deceased.

Finally, compensation may be available for non-economic losses, including pain and suffering and loss of comfort and companionship.


For damages such as lost financial support, medical and funeral costs, you can recover compensation in the amount of the loss itself. Anticipated future expenses, such as the decedent's lost wages, would need to be proven with some degree of certainty before being awarded. However, compensation could still be given for the amount of the anticipated loss.

Compensation for non-economic damages such as pain and suffering is capped by Colorado law at a maximum of approximately $470,000.
