Types of Colorado Personal Injury Claims

In Colorado, personal injury claims can result from any serious injury caused by negligence. Common types of claims occur because of:

  • Car accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Truck, bike, or motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Medical malpractice
  • Product liability
  • Ski and snowboarding accidents
  • Premises liability
  • Wrongful death

Each type of claim requires a different legal approach and a different type of investigation to get evidence. After a car accident, for example, an attorney may work with accident reconstruction professionals to uncover what caused a crash. In a medical malpractice case, attorneys may work with expert witnesses to establish liability.

In each type of personal injury claim, there are also different statutes of limitations, which refers to the limited amount of time you have to file a claim. An experienced Colorado personal injury attorney can make sure you file within the timeframe and have a strong case so you can seek compensation for your losses.

What Should I Do If I Suffer a Serious Injury in Colorado?

If you've been injured and there is a chance you may have a legal claim, there are steps you should take:

  • Get medical attention. Seek medical attention immediately, even if you're not sure you've been injured or your injuries appear to be minor. Some serious injuries, including life-threatening head injuries, may not have any symptoms right away. Getting prompt medical attention is important to ensure you get the right care and it helps you start documenting your injuries.
  • Report the incident. Depending on the situation, you may need to report the injury to different people. If you suffer a slip and fall in a store, for example, report the accident to the manager. Get a copy of the incident report.
  • Gather evidence. If you can, take pictures of the accident scene, any injuries, and any property or items involved in the accident. Get the names and contact information of any witnesses. As soon as you can, write down everything you remember, and keep any receipts or paperwork related to your injuries.
  • Contact a Colorado personal injury attorney. Contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible so you can discuss whether you have a case and so you can review what needs to happen next. Your attorney can start taking action right away, gathering evidence, negotiating with insurers, and building a strong case.
How Much Could My Colorado Personal Injury Claim Be Worth?

If you've been injured due to the negligence of another party, you may be able to seek compensation for your damages, which can include any losses you've suffered, such as:

  • Medical expenses, including hospital expenses, doctor's bills, the cost of medical devices, medication costs, and ongoing physical therapy costs.
  • Lost wages, including reduced earning capacity, lost income while you can't work, and lost benefits.
  • Pain and suffering, including emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and physical pain.
  • Property damage, including damage to your car, phone, home, and other personal property.
  • Incidental costs, like the cost of at-home care if you need help with daily tasks.

The cost of every accident is different. Speaking with a Colorado personal injury attorney can help.

They can help you understand how much your claim may be worth and can help you pursue that claim.
