Level the Playing Field with the Insurance Company
Don't try to settle your claim by working directly with the insurance company. Remember, they don't have your best interests in mind. Whatever your case is worth, they are likely to do everything they can to reduce this amount or even deny you a settlement outright. They have teams of adjusters, claims representatives, and even attorneys to defend their bottom line, so don't you think you should have your own legal representation to fight for you? Let us help you gather the necessary evidence for your claim, negotiate with the insurance company representatives, and even take your case to trial if necessary. To learn about some of the different types of accident cases we handle, read the information provided below.
Types of Accident Claims We Represent
Motor vehicle collisions are among the leading causes of accident-related injuries and deaths every year in America, and a large percentage of them are entirely preventable. If the other driver was texting or talking on a cell phone, was speeding or driving recklessly, or had been drinking or using drugs, you may be entitled to full compensation for your injuries.
Our attorneys take pride in holding negligent truckers accountable for the injuries they cause. Whether the accident occurred on I-25 or on a city street, we are ready to take action in your case. Commercial truck drivers bear an increased responsibility to avoid accidents since their vehicles can weigh up to 40 times more than passenger vehicles.
Sometimes a motorcycle accident is the fault of the rider, but in a large number of cases, it is found that the driver of the car or truck is responsible for causing the accident, whether by striking the bike or forcing the rider off the road. Motorcycle injuries can be devastating and life changing, and we want to help you claim fair monetary damages.
Drunk Driving Accidents
Mothers Against Drunk Driving ranks Colorado as 19th in the nation for the percentage of alcohol-related traffic deaths. Let us help you hold the drunk driver accountable for causing your injuries or the death of a loved one. The driver may or may not go to jail, but with our help, you may be able to secure the justice you deserve.
When you have lost a family member as a result of another person's negligence, no amount of money will ever be able to replace your loss. Despite the grief you are enduring, it is vital that you take legal action to hold the negligent party responsible and offset the significant economic burdens associated with the accident.
Anyone who has been wrongfully injured deserves to be compensated, but this is especially true in the case of catastrophic, life-changing injuries such as birth injuries, crushed limbs, burn injuries, traumatic brain injury, and spinal cord damage. You may never be able to work and support your family, let alone pay for your medical expenses. Let us help you claim fair compensation.
Don't make the assumption that your doctor did everything that could be done to prevent your suffering. Doctors are, by and large, well-intentioned and skilled professionals, but they do make mistakes. Failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis, prescription errors, surgical errors, and psychiatric mistreatment are all common forms of medical malpractice.
If you have been injured on another person's property — whether a residential or commercial property — it may be possible to recover monetary damages by suing the property owner under the legal principle of premises liability. By demonstrating that the owner knew, or should have known, of the hazard that caused your accident but did nothing to prevent your injury, you can demand compensation.
Some manufacturers use their customers as unwitting test subjects by taking their products to market before those products or devices have been fully tested for safety. Inherent design flaws, manufacturing defects, and failure to warn are all possible grounds for a product liability claim. Our team has the resources necessary to take on large corporations in court.
How much is your Colorado Springs personal injury case worth?
The goal in a personal injury claim is to provide the plaintiff — you — with sufficient compensation to fully offset the economic impact of the accident. There are three types of damages to consider when filing an accident claim. First, you can claim economic damages for all of your financial losses, including medical expenses for emergency treatment, hospitalization, surgery, rehabilitative care, medicine, and equipment, as well as for your lost wages and reduced future earning power. You can also claim noneconomic damages for the pain, suffering, and mental anguish you have been subjected to during your ordeal. It may additionally be possible to claim punitive damages by demonstrating that the accident was caused by the gross negligence or intentional misconduct of the other party.
We settle a large percentage of our cases out of court, but we do not hesitate to go to trial if necessary to secure the award amount or judgement you deserve. Individuals who hire legal representation are frequently successful in recovering greater amounts of compensation than they otherwise would have, as an insurance company's first offer is rarely, if ever, a fair one. We know how important it is for you to recover the full amount you deserve and we want to help you walk away from this situation in the best possible position. To learn how much your case may be worth, contact us now for a free consultation with an attorney from our firm.
