This is the empirical question that needs to be addressed at the outset of your case. There are a few situations where we have advised clients that they do not need us and we can walk them through the steps on how to resolve their problem without involving an attorney. There are also situations where it wouldn’t be fair to represent someone and earn a fee on their case because little to no value was added to their claims given their particular situation. Regardless of where your particular case falls, we will tell you honestly whether you need our assistance and how we can help.
For most personal injury cases, an attorney is necessary because you are making a legal claim with an insurance company who handles million of cases annually. We repeatedly find ourselves saying that if insurance companies did the right thing for injured victims we would be out of business, and here we are. This applies to your insurance carrier as much as the person’s who caused the injury. Even perceived “simple” personal injury cases get complicated very quickly especially if there are issues with who caused the injury, health insurance carriers, pre-existing issues, lost wages, and proving the damages.
More importantly, you have one shot to present your case and obtain the financial compensation you need to live the best life you can. Upon resolution of your case, you need to feel comfortable and confident that you can move on knowing the result was fair to you. Unless you have the legal experience to rest assured you were treated fairly, you need to consult with an attorney. As is true with most things in life, if you think hiring a professional is expensive, wait until you hire an amateur.
Following an accident, you should immediately seek medical attention for any serious injuries that you have suffered. If possible, collecting detailed documentation of the accident scene, such as photos, notes, and witness contact information, may help strengthen your claim further down the road. Finally, if you believe that injuries you incurred were the result of another’s negligence or reckless actions, contact a knowledgeable Denver personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
You would be surprised by the types of cases where we can help. From automobile accidents to rock climbing, dog bites to bar fights, shootings to skiing injuries, if you have been injured and even theoretically think someone else may be responsible for your injuries, call us and we can chat about it. It is always better to know whether you have a case than not ask.
In Colorado, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your medical bills, wage loss, pain and suffering, loss to the quality of your life, physical impairment, and disfigurement. While this is not a complete list, you may have other unique damages that apply to your specific case that we are more than happy to discuss with you.
In most situations, we attempt to locate an insurance policy that will provide coverage for your specific case. Whether this is a homeowner’s policy, an automobile policy, or a commercial policy for a business, it is always helpful to have an insurance company involved and to pay your damages rather than pursuing someone who may not have the ability to pay themselves. We also investigate all other sources of potential recovery so you may make the educated decision regarding your case.
