FAQs: You Have Questions. We Have Answers.
What is a personal injury claim?
It’s a claim by an injured person against the person or corporation that hurt them. We file your claim seeking compensation for your injuries from the insurance company of the person or corporation that hurt you under the laws of Colorado.
Personal injury claims arise from car accidents, dangerous conditions on property, product defects, or any other situation where someone else's actions or negligence causes you harm.
Your legally compensable damages include your medical bills, lost wages, physical and mental pain and suffering, inconvenience, emotional stress, physical impairment, disfigurement, costs, and interest. Your personal injury attorney at Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. will work with you to tabulate all your losses and will fight hard to get you paid for them.
How do personal injury claims work?
To pursue a personal injury claim, the injured party, known as the plaintiff or tort victim, must establish that the defendant or tortfeasor had a duty of care, that the defendant breached that duty, and that the breach of duty directly caused the plaintiff's injuries and losses. Additionally, the plaintiff must demonstrate the extent of their injuries and resultant losses.
Once a personal injury claim is filed, it often involves negotiations with the defendant's insurance company or attorney to reach a settlement that compensates the plaintiff for their losses. If a settlement cannot be reached, the case may proceed to trial, where a jury will determine the outcome and the awarded compensation.
What should I do immediately following a personal injury?
Prioritize your health immediately after an accident or injury by seeking medical attention. Then, contact the authorities to report the incident and gather any necessary documentation, if applicable. Take photos or videos of the accident scene, injuries, and damages, and collect contact information from witnesses. Preserve evidence of the accident, such as damaged property, and keep records of medical bills and other expenses. And notify your insurance company about the incident.
Be cautious about accepting settlements without consulting an attorney. It is critically important that you seek legal advice from a trusted personal injury attorney to understand your rights, navigate the claims process, and help you pursue fair compensation.
What should I look for in a personal injury lawyer?
You will want a personal injury lawyer with a proven track record of success in handling cases similar to your own and who can help advance your claim quickly. Also, look for an attorney who takes the time to understand your situation and listens to the goals you want to achieve
How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?
How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?
According to Colorado law, you generally have two years to file a claim from the date you were injured. If your claim involves a motor vehicle accident, you have three years.
It’s important to note that failure to meet these deadlines will effectively prevent you from seeking any compensation at all. Still, even if you think too much time has passed, we advise you to speak with one of our personal injury lawyers because there are certain limited exceptions to the deadlines that may apply in your case.
What kinds of damages can I sue for in a personal injury claim?
Many losses can be compensated through a personal injury lawsuit. Common examples of recoverable damages include your medical bills, lost wages, physical and mental pain and suffering, inconvenience, emotional stress, physical impairment, and disfigurement. But remember the old adage: “If you are your own lawyer, you have a fool for a client.” Don’t go it alone. One of our Colorado injury lawyers would be happy to help evaluate the circumstances of your case and guide you through the legal process.
What qualifies as a personal injury case?
A personal injury case arises when you suffer an injury or loss as a result of someone else’s careless, reckless, or intentional acts. Your Colorado personal injury lawyer will look at your situation and help you determine if it’s likely compensable.
What type of settlement should I expect in a personal injury case?
A number of factors will be considered in a personal injury settlement. The main factors are liability and damages. The clearer the defendant’s liability and the more you are hurt, the more your case is worth.
How long will my personal injury case take to resolve?
The duration of a personal injury case can vary based on various factors, including the case's complexity, the extent of injuries, and the willingness of the involved parties to negotiate. While some cases may settle relatively quickly, others might require more investigation, negotiation, or even trial time. Your attorney will work diligently to resolve your case efficiently while ensuring your rights are protected and seeking full compensation for your damages.
What’s the difference between a settlement and a verdict?
A settlement is when the other side agrees to pay you. If the parties go to trial, a jury decides the verdict. Deciding whether to accept a settlement offer or go to trial and get a verdict is an easy decision in some cases. In other cases, it requires a careful cost-benefit analysis.
