WHAT IS PERSONAL INJURY?

Have you been in an auto accident? Did you slip on some spilled milk and fall at the grocery store? Or has something else left you injured? In court, a personal injury is defined as any harm done to someone by the act – or failure to act – of another party. This can include a physical injury, damage to one’s reputation, the loss of a legal right or even one’s emotional well-being. Further, that injury can be classified as either willful (intentional) or negligent. These personal injuries can result from drunk driving accidents, semi-truck accidents, traumatic brain injuries, or spinal cord injuries, to name a few. A Denver injury attorney at Burg Simpson has the experience needed to help you.

It makes no difference how you’ve been injured – if it’s through the carelessness of someone else, you could be eligible for compensation for the pain, suffering, and loss you’ve suffered as a result. The Denver personal injury lawyers at Burg Simpson have decades of experience fighting for personal injury victims. We have also won over 100 cases in excess of 1 million dollars each, totaling a billion dollars. Our reputation speaks for itself so call one of our personal injury lawyers today. For a summary of what’s involved in personal injury cases, visit our OVERVIEW page.

WHAT IS YOUR PERSONAL INJURY CASE WORTH?

Our team of Denver personal injury lawyers, legal assistants, and support staff will take a look at every case and sift through a variety of criteria to determine the validity of your particular personal injury case. These can include:

  • The nature and extent of the personal injury and the treatment received.
  • The extent of liability of each party involved.
  • The potential economic loss the victim suffered, based on factors such as work history, salary and salary history, the injured person’s ability to return to work, and the extent of the injury.
  • Potential future medical needs.
  • Evidence of pre-existing medical conditions that might mitigate the value of the case and amount of available insurance.

The types of damages that can be recovered include economic, non-economic and sometimes even punitive damages.

PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS

In the process of working with your personal injury attorney, don’t talk to anyone from the other party’s insurance company. Make sure to not provide any sort of recorded or written statement. And don’t sign anything for anyone, even your own insurance company, without first speaking to your Denver injury attorney. Even if someone is offering to pay your medical bills, again, do not sign or accept anything without first talking to your Colorado personal injury lawyer. Depending on the circumstances of your personal injury case, there are several types of insurance that can be relevant, such as:

  1. Homeowners
  2. Automobile
  3. Life
  4. Health
  5. Workers’ compensation
  6. Disability
  7. Commercial property
  8. Commercial liability
  9. Business owners’

Any given personal injury case can involve one or more of these insurance types, which makes it even more crucial that you speak with an experienced personal injury attorney who can act as your informed advocate to protect your rights in the face of insurance companies who are only looking out for their shareholders. Our Burg Simpson attorneys have the knowledge needed to help you through this complex process, so don’t go at it alone.

HOW MUCH TIME DO I HAVE?

The sooner you get help from a Colorado personal injury lawyer, the better your chances of securing compensation. You wouldn’t come home from work, find your house cleaned out, and wait until the weekend to call the police, would you? Of course not. Your best chance at getting your stuff back is to call the authorities right away. Similarly, you shouldn’t wait to call a Denver injury attorney after you’ve been injured. It’s crucial to start your case immediately after the personal injury occurred, so contact us for your free consultation now.

It’s also worth remembering that these cases can take some time. Lawsuits and legal negotiations are not usually rapid endeavors. The legal system is methodical by design. Settlements have been known to happen quickly, but it’s just as likely that a case can take months or even years to work its way to resolution, especially when you’re dealing with insurance companies. Our injury lawyers have dealt with dozens of insurance companies and hundreds of these cases, so they’re fully prepared to walk you through what can sometimes be a frustrating, time-consuming process.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR INITIAL CONSULTATION

One of our paralegals will probably interview you before you ever meet with one of our personal injury attorneys. This trained professional will ask you several questions to better prepare you and our staff for the initial consultation. This might take the form of a personal meeting in our office or a phone call, depending on the severity of your injuries. Our personal injury lawyers are also willing and able to meet with you at a medical facility, if necessary. These consultations can sometimes be emotional events, so it’s completely understandable to bring a family member or loved one to your meeting with one of our Colorado personal injury attorneys.

Frequently Asked Questions

Finally, it’s natural to have questions and concerns in the aftermath of such a painful, traumatic event. So we’ve provided thorough Personal Injury FAQ to help address some of those important questions. This does not as a substitute for a conversation with one of our Colorado personal injury attorneys. So call us at 303-500-5995, we can answer all the questions you have.

No matter how bad your injury, we are here for you! Burg Simpson will help you through the details of your incident and case, even if it is brought to trial.
