Assault claims account for many of the personal injury claims filed each year. Even though the number of violent crimes occurring is going down in Fort Collins, we’re still dealing with a number that our community should be aware of. In fact, in the U.S.A. alone, over 2 million simple assault cases were filed in 2010. It’s important to point out however, that these types of personal injury cases are more popular because the type of assault is so widespread. From domestic violence and alcohol abuse to emotional distress and physical injury, assault is nearly everywhere you look.
Even though the economy is getting stronger, unemployment rates are still high. This only means that work-related injury claims are high as well.

The most common injuries that are filed for include carpal tunnel syndrome, neck and back injuries, and other repetitive stress injuries.
