Verdicts/Settlements

Settlements and Verdicts Obtained by the Denver Injury and Insurance Attorneys at The Frankl Law Firm, P.C.

We are proud of our long-standing record of accomplishments. We are pleased to report these verdicts and settlements we have obtained for our clients.

We cannot state names when reporting many of our settlements, because they are confidential. Insurers frequently demand confidentiality as part of settlement to prevent others from being encouraged to bring lawsuits against them. You should be aware that prior results do not guarantee future outcomes.
