Representing Clients in a Variety of Cases
Accidents can happen anytime, everywhere, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you deserve to be injured. If you suspect someone is guilty of causing your injuries, whether it’s a driver who failed to signal before merging or a medical professional who misdiagnosed you, we can investigate your accident and determine liability. It’s best to call a lawyer who has personal injury experience before you decide to give up on starting a case you may be able to benefit from.
Our team has worked with clients who have been injured in a wide variety of accidents, including:
- Auto accidents
- Burn injuries
- Defective drugs
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Explosion cases
- Government benefits claims
- Medical malpractice
- Minor settlements
- Motorcycle accidents
- Premises liability
- Spinal injuries
- Brain injuries
- Skiing accidents
- Stray voltage electricity cases
- Workers’ comp and third-party claims
- Wrongful death
Our team is well-versed on Colorado state laws, including the statute of limitations set for personal injury claims. Individuals have two years from the date of injury to file a claim and pursue compensation in Colorado. This is why it’s better to start your case immediately following your accident – you don’t want to miss your opportunity to recover damages and hold at-fault parties responsible because you missed the deadline to file your claim.
What to Do After an Accident
If you’ve been injured in an accident, you may in a state of shock and unsure of what to do next. It’s first important that you seek medical attention as soon as possible if you and others involved in the accident are injured, even if you’re experiencing minor symptoms or injuries. It’s also beneficial for you to document as much of the accident as possible, from taking photos of your injuries and other damages to collecting witness statements.
Hiring a personal injury attorney is your next best step towards pursuing justice. A well-equipped law firm can send a team to investigate your accident fully and collect what you don’t have, including police reports and medical records. Our team also communicates with insurance adjusters during this time so you don’t have to worry about anything else besides healing.
Accidents and resulting injuries can be expensive to recover from. You’re likely facing thousands of dollars in medical bills, lost wages, and property damage. Our team can calculate how much compensation you’re entitled to and pursue it relentlessly on your behalf.
Our team has helped clients recover damages including:
- Medical bills
- Burial and funeral costs
- Lost wages or earning capacity
- Lost income
- Property damage
- Loss of companionship
- Pain and suffering
We also work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you don’t need to worry about paying a legal fee until we win. In a time of darkness and pain, we strive to uplift our clients and guide them toward a better future.
