The Basics of Personal Injury Law
Colorado personal injury law is sets forth how and when a personal injury claim can be filed. In general, to prove a personal injury claim the injured party must prove that the injury was caused by the negligence or wrongful actions and conduct of another. In accidents involving automobiles, bicycles, trucks, motorcycles, or pedestrians, if you were seriously injured you may have a claim against the negligent party. Serious bodily injury may include death, dismemberment, disfiguration, fractures, limited or loss of use of functions, or the inability to participate in your day-to-day activities in your life.
Personal injury cases revolve around the wrongdoing, or negligence, of another person. An injured person must prove that the conduct or actions of the other person amounted to negligence. If this can be proven, the injured party can succeed in their legal claim. Even in cases where you are partially at fault, you may still have a claim against another person who is deemed at-fault.
The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Colorado is three years from the date of the injury. If your personal injury claim involves a government entity, your time period will be shorter. Because there are several factors to consider in personal injury cases, it is important to seek the assistance of a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your accident. This will ensure that your rights are properly protected and that you will not miss any deadlines that exist in your case.
The Role of a Personal Injury Attorney
The role of a Colorado personal injury attorney is to ensure that your rights are protected. Insurance companies are not on your side. Like other businesses, insurance companies exist to make money. It is common for insurance companies to undervalue personal injury claims to protect their bottom line. Having a personal injury attorney will force the insurance company to treat your claim fairly and help prevent undervaluing your claim.
The attorneys at Nellessen Legal, LLC., with the assistance of medical experts, will help calculate the true value of your claim to assist in negotiations with the insurance company and to assist in case preparation if a just resolution cannot be reached.
