Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?
An accident can happen anywhere, from car crashes, to slipping and falling at the grocery store, the risk for sustaining an injury is all around us. While some accidents don’t require legal action, those involving serious or catastrophic injuries usually require the services of an attorney. If you have experienced a serious injury in an accident, you should hire a Colorado personal injury lawyer to help ensure that your legal rights are protected.
In Depth Knowledge of the Law
Personal injury laws are complicated and vary from state to state. The legal guidelines for a personal injury claim also depends on the type of injury that occurred. This means that establishing liability for a dog bite is different than establishing liability for a commercial truck accident. For cases involving fraud and product liability, the rules for negligence and liability are also drastically different.
An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you address these issues and decipher which laws will impact your case. Although you can look up laws online, a Colorado personal injury attorney can actually explain how these laws will be applied to your case and how they can affect your compensation.
Personal injury cases are often resolved outside of the court room. In fact, insurance companies look to specifically settle an injury claim out of court because they can usually settle for lower amount, especially when lawyers are left out of the negotiation process.
Having a lawyer by your side during negotiations can keep you from agreeing to an unfair deal. An attorney can use their knowledge of the law to leverage the negotiation process in your favor and get you a fair compensation offer.
Not all personal injury cases can be negotiated out of court. When this happens, you want an experienced lawyer who is capable of defending your rights and fighting on your behalf in court.
Our team of lawyers has a stellar reputation and we have the skills you need to obtain the justice you seek. We are dedicated to protecting your interests and we will use our full resources to help you get compensated for your injuries.
Time is of the Essence for Colorado Injury Cases
If you have suffered an injury, there is a limited period of time in which you can file a claim for damages. This time-frame is known as a “statute of limitations.” In the state of Colorado, different statutes are applied to personal injuries, depending on the circumstances of each case:
- Product Liability Case: 2 Years
- Premises Liability Case: 2 Years
- Dog Bite Case: 2 Years
- Motor Vehicle Accident Case: 3 Years
- Wrongful Death Case: 2 Years
- Professional Malpractice : 2 Years
The statute of limitations begins from the date in which the injury occurred. For injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident, the statute of limitations begins on the date of the car accident and when the injury symptoms first became apparent.
For wrongful death cases, the decedent’s spouse has exclusive rights to file a claim within a year of when the death occurred. If the deceased party was not married, only their immediate heirs or a designated beneficiary can file a wrongful death claim. After the one year time period, the decedent’s children can file claims on behalf of the deceased as well.
