Making a choice concerning whether or not you would benefit from hiring a personal injury attorney following a car accident depends largely on how serious the collision was and on the nature and degree of the injuries, if any, that it caused. For instance, if you were injured in an insignificant fender bender or any kind of non-moving accident, such as opening your door into the side of another vehicle in a parking lot, and no one was hurt then, you presumably do not need to retain any kind of legal representation. Ordinarily, the damage created by lesser car accidents is able to be settled via the driver’s insurance carriers.
Along this same vein, some Colorado traffic violations and citations are capable of being dealt with via the state’s municipal courts without any assistance from a Colorado personal injury attorney. If you sustain an injury as the result of a more serious car accident, however, you will likely benefit a great deal by employing the services of a reputable personal injury attorney who can help you protect your rights and to ensure that you get the full amount of financial compensation to which you are legally entitled.
Following a serious or fatal car accident, a qualified attorney will be able to assist you in collecting money that Colorado state laws say you are owed for any losses as well as any damage that was done to your vehicle and/or to your private property. He or she will also secure you full and fair reimbursement for any previous and/or ongoing medical attention, and gather any information and evidence that will prove that you are not the driver who is responsible for the accident.
A good personal injury attorney will also be an invaluable asset when it comes to communicating with representatives from your insurance carrier on your behalf, the other party’s attorney, as well as the courts.
If you have sustained an injury during a vehicle collision, common indications that you would benefit from retaining the services of an experienced personal injury attorney include but are not limited to:
If someone was critically injured or died as a result of the car accident, you absolutely must get in touch with a skilled personal injury attorney as soon as you possibly can. Car accidents that result in grievous bodily harm or the loss of life/lives almost always end in complicated lawsuits or, in some instances, maybe even several lawsuits. You may need to consider filing a personal injury lawsuit of your own against the careless driver in an effort to obtain financial compensation for the costs of any necessary medical attention that you received because of your injuries.
You may also be looking at a personal injury or wrongful death countersuit. If that is the case, the courts will have to examine numerous legal matters, and the final dollar amount of any possible damages may climb shockingly high.
We would never recommend that you attempt to represent yourself through any lawsuit that is brought following a severe car accident. These sorts of civil claims nearly always center around multiple complex legal matters that necessitate educated, professional counsel. Your personal injury attorney knows the best way to help you determine the total amount of remuneration that you are entitled to under Colorado law, guide you throughout the complicated legal process, and know the best way to represent you against any potential counterclaims that might pop up.
If you have been injured in a vehicle collision that has left you incapable of returning to work, then your car accident attorney will be the one to make certain that you are awarded the maximum amount of financial compensation that Colorado accident laws will enable you to collect. Unfortunately, some victims are injured so severely in these car crashes that their ability to go to work and earn an income all on their own is permanently impacted.
A seasoned personal injury attorney knows precisely how to calculate the exact total of the damages you are allowed to receive according to Colorado law. This reimbursement will take into consideration any employment or days of work that have lapsed because of your injury as well as the total expense of any medical attention that you will require presently or anytime down the road.
If you have suffered an injury due to a car accident in which more than two cars were involved, you will find that the process of filing an insurance claim has grown increasingly complex and will quite probably result in several different lawsuits. Some kinds of multi-car accidents include additional kinds of victims such as pedestrians, commercial truck operators, property owners, or possibly even local businesses.
If you or someone you love has been injured as the result of another person’s distracted driving or other negligent behavior, then you may be entitled to receive financial compensation for damages. You need a reputable personal injury attorney who is experienced in handling these kinds of cases.
