Sutton | Booker managing shareholder Debra Sutton and associate Paul Jordan secured the dismissal of a wrongful death claim after filing a motion to dismiss.

The Sutton | Booker team identified Plaintiff’s lack of standing under C.R.S. § 13-21-201, which limits recovery only to the spouse of the deceased, the heir of the deceased, or the beneficiary of the deceased designated pursuant to article 22, title 15, C.R.S. A thorough understanding of the statutes governing wrongful death claims is critical in reaching the proper outcome in these cases.
