If You Have Been Injured by the Negligence of Another Party

Personal injury lawsuits are filed when a party is harmed by another party’s negligent actions or inactions. While automobile collisions account for a significant number of personal injury cases, these kinds of lawsuits are also filed for cases involving dangerous consumer products, drugs, and medical devices.

 Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

It is important to remember that the insurance company is more concerned about their profits than your health, best interests, and well-being. And it is not unusual for an insurance company to employ tactics intended to pressure vulnerable and injured victims into accepting offers that are not enough to even cover medical expenses. Do not allow an insurance company to bully you. Put yourself in a position of strength by hiring an experienced personal injury attorney who will protect you and your best interests.

Should I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Statutes of limitation apply to personal injury claims, so the sooner you acquire representation, the more likely your attorney can positively impact your legal matter. The Colorado Statute of Limitations for personal injury is generally two years from the date of the incident, but there are exceptions. Talk to your attorney now for more information.
