A Highlands Ranch Personal Injury Attorney Can Help

Insurance adjusters generally want to settle claims quickly and for the least amount of money possible. This is not because insurance adjusters are bad people; instead, they work for insurance companies whose primary goal is to make money for shareholders. It is against your best interests to make any statements to an insurance company, sign any documents, or accept a settlement without having it reviewed by a personal injury attorney.

Our Highlands Ranch personal injury lawyers will ensure you do not sign away compensation you deserve or make statements that hurt your claim.

We will also:

  • Investigate your accident
  • Identify all responsible parties
  • Review your medical records
  • Pursue all avenues of compensation
  • Assess your total losses
  • Determine your future accident-related needs
  • Handle all correspondence from the insurance company and creditors
  • Negotiate with the insurance company
  • Settle your claim
  • File a lawsuit and litigate your case

Most personal injury claims settle before reaching court or a trial. There are time limits, or statutes of limitations, on personal injury claims in Colorado. Find out how long you have to file your claim by contacting our office today.

What is a Personal Injury Claim?

The term “personal injury” covers a broad area of civil law. It refers to a range of scenarios, or claims, that arise from injuries caused to one person by another person’s or party’s negligence. The victims in personal injury claims usually seek compensation from the at-fault party’s insurance company.

In Colorado, most personal injury lawsuits need filing within two years of the date of injury. However, there are different deadlines for different types of injury claims and negligent parties. It is always prudent to seek the advice of an experienced Highlands Ranch injury lawyer to avoid losing the right to file a lawsuit.

Examples of personal injury claims include:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Premises liability
  • Brain injury
  • Insurance bad faith
  • Wrongful death

Compensation for a Personal Injury Accident

Determining the value of an injury claim is complicated and often requires experts in the legal, medical, financial, and health and rehabilitation fields. They evaluate a victim’s severity of injuries, the effect on their life, and prognosis for recovery along with future medical needs and costs of living.

Typically, compensation for a personal injury accident includes the following kinds of damages:

  • Medical expenses, current, and future
  • Property damage
  • Lost income
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental and emotional trauma
  • Loss of consortium

Colorado’s current cap on pain and suffering and other non-economic damages in most personal injury cases is $584,210. There is no cap on economic damages with limited exceptions.
