How Our Douglas County Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help:

To Fight Greedy Insurance Companies

If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you deserve compensation. Personal injury claims are a way to make you whole financially. They determine whether you, as the victim, should be compensated for your damages and how much that amount should be.

Sadly, insurance companies don’t make it easy. Insurance companies care about how much money they can save. They will hire attorneys and investigators to watch you. While their representatives on the phone may seem friendly, they are for-profit businesses. They do not have your best interests in mind- unless you give them no other choice.

Insurers regularly undervalue and deny claims, taking advantage of victims who are desperate for compensation. That’s where we come in- to level the playing field.

To Win The Maximum Possible Money

We don’t bend to the tricks and bullying from insurance companies. With years of experience, we know exactly how they work. Insurance companies will work with us because they respect us.

Fighting aggressively on your behalf, we will conduct investigations, gather evidence and build a case that wins you the maximum possible money.

What Are Personal Injury Claims?

Personal injury claims are civil claims made against negligent parties following an accident. After an injury, we set up a claim. We then send a demand for compensation. If we are unable to settle the case, then we will work together with our client to decide whether to file a lawsuit and take the issue to court.

In almost every case, the at-fault party’s insurer will foot the bill – not you.

Personal injury cases do not determine if the other party should be criminally charged or face jail time even though some people’s behavior deserves it. Our power is to help you recover financial compensation. In a lot of cases, costing the at-fault person money is a form of punishment that we try to accomplish.

Can I Afford a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Many people hear the word ‘lawyer’ and think that it will be expensive. In reality, anyone suffering from an accident that wasn’t their fault can afford a personal injury lawyer.

Our Douglas County Personal Injury Lawyers operate on a contingency basis – meaning we only get paid if we win your case. There are no out-of-pocket fees. You never have to pay us on a payment plan or a retainer. The payment of our fee comes from the settlement or court verdict we win on your behalf.

When Should You Contact a Douglas County Personal Injury Lawyer?

If you or a loved one have suffered injuries in an accident, it is always wise to speak with a Douglas County personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Many times we have clients call us from the accident scene asking for advice.

In terms of timing, receiving necessary medical care is always the priority. We can direct you whether to go to urgent care, to the hospital, or even the appropriate doctor to go to. When and where you receive this medical treatment is perhaps one of the most important decisions in your case. Thus, the sooner that you call, the better.

Even if you think you were partly to blame, our investigations may reveal that reality differed from your memory. Colorado also has comparative fault laws, meaning that partial blame may still entitle you to compensation.

Can You Sue for a Personal Injury in Douglas County?

Yes. Personal injury lawsuits are some of the most common types of civil actions in Colorado.

As long as the accident wasn’t more than 50% your fault, then you most likely have grounds to file a claim. By speaking to our Douglas County personal injury lawyers, we can determine what is possible and move forward appropriately.

Proving Liability

For any personal injury claim in Douglas County to succeed, we must show that the other party was liable for your injury.

To do this, we must show:

  • The defendant owed you a legal duty of care
  • The defendant breached that legal duty of care
  • That breach directly resulted in your injuries

A breach may have been caused by negligence, gross negligence, reckless conduct, or intentional misconduct.

Our Douglas County personal injury lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation to gather crucial evidence, determine the cause and display how it directly resulted in your injury.

Colorado Comparable Fault Laws

In Colorado, we have comparative faults laws. These require every personal injury case to be analyzed to see if there is a share of the responsibility.

The percentage of responsibility will then reduce the amount of compensation a victim can receive.

For example, if you are in a car accident caused because someone else swerved into you while using their phone, they may be liable. But if you were speeding at the time, you may also have a share of the responsibility. Each case is different and we will be able to explain when these rules apply.

What Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Do for You?

Recover Physically and Financially

We will refer you to the best doctors and medical facilities in Colorado. We know the facilities that can be trusted to care for you. We want you to get better without having to worry about your medical treatment.

Fight On Your Behalf, So You Can Rest

If you or a loved one have been injured, you need to recover. You cannot focus on recovery if you’re stressed about legal paperwork, how you are going to get your car fixed, and insurers harassing you.

Douglas County Personal Injury Lawyers go above and beyond to ensure every client can have faith that their personal injury claim is going smoothly.

From gathering and protecting evidence to negotiations and paperwork, we will take care of the complicated matters so you can rest.

The Best Legal Strategies

Being versatile is essential. Sometimes, we can avoid court by negotiating a settlement directly. Determining which direction to take is a crucial part of our job and can make a big difference in the outcome of your case.

Get The Money You Deserve

As experienced attorneys, we know the consequences of undervalued claims. You deserve more than an insulting, bare minimum offer. Using our expertise, we will show how you’ve suffered damages that many wouldn’t even consider.

What If Someone Has Been Killed in an Accident in Douglas County?

Wrongful Death Claims

By speaking to our Douglas County personal injury lawyers, we can assess your case and determine what is possible.

Our Personal Injury Claim Process

Initial Consultations

During our free consultations, we will speak to you to learn about your accident experience, your expectations and your concerns. We will answer any questions and determine what is possible moving forward.

Protecting Your Rights

Insurance companies use tactics to take advantage of people like you who have been injured. They know you’ll be desperate for compensation and scared of what may be ahead.

Our legal team will immediately take over communication with insurance companies to protect your rights. We will also preserve evidence and collect more while it’s fresh.

Specialist Resources

We can connect you with specialists in Douglas County for medical treatment and diagnosis. During this phase, we will monitor medical records and bills to create a paper trail that supports your case.

Investigations

We will carry out thorough investigations into your accident to determine the true cause. We will pull the full accident reports and speak to witnesses. In certain cases, we will employ a private investigator to assist us.

Demand

All documentation in your claim will be organized into a ‘demand package’, that details the story of your case. It will be presented to the insurance company, who will have the chance to accept, reject or counter the offer.

Our communication with you during this phase will allow you to make the final decision. We will keep you informed as we negotiate on your behalf.

Pre-Litigation Settlement

Most personal injury claims are settled in a pre-litigation settlement. This means that there is no need for a lawsuit. We will negotiate the maximum possible figure to help you recover.

Filing a Lawsuit

If the insurance company refuses to negotiate or their offer is unacceptable, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf. This is always done with your input and consent.

Discovery and Depositions

Although jury trials are rare, we always prepare for their possibility. A deposition is your chance to tell your story under oath. Almost all cases settle at this point. But, if it doesn’t we will be prepared for the trial.

Mediation/Arbitration

Before facing a jury, your case is likely to go before a meditator. Their job is to listen to both sides and try to get both sides to agree on a settlement figure..

In many cases, the claim is settled at this point as the insurance company is fully educated on the strength of the case.

Jury Trial

The final step in securing the compensation you deserve is to present your case before a jury. Our expert and experienced Douglas County personal injury lawyers will show the jury why you deserve to win. A jury of 6 people will then decide the figure they believe is fair.
