Why You Need An Experienced Denver Personal Injury Attorney On Your Side

The majority of personal injury claims in Colorado do not go to trial. They successfully settle outside of the courtroom, during pre-trial negotiations and mediations. Yet this does not diminish the importance of retaining an attorney with extensive trial experience. Trial experience isn’t just about representing clients in front of a judge and jury – it’s about bringing the pressure during settlement negotiations.

Insurance companies and other parties do not want a claim to go to trial. They know that if this happens, they could lose a lot more money in court costs and in a greater judgment award. It is the fear of having to go to trial that drives up the value of settlement offers. The defendant needs to honestly believe the plaintiff and his/her attorneys are willing and able to go to trial. Otherwise, they might offer lower settlements.

The team at Jordan, Herington & Rowley has a long history of going to trial for our clients in Colorado. Big insurance companies know our reputation as trial attorneys and have no doubt that we are prepared to go to court if necessary to get full compensation for a client. We have no problem fighting for you and your family during a civil trial. Whether your case goes to court or not, trusting attorneys with trial experience is crucial for the amount you will get for your claim.

What is Personal Injury Law?

Personal injury law deals with the system of legal remedies and reparations for someone with injuries due to another person’s negligence, carelessness, recklessness, or intent to harm. Personal injury cases take place in the civil courts, not the criminal courts. They involve the injured party pursuing damages, or money awards, not the government prosecuting the defendant. One might have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit if he/she suffers physical or psychological injuries, property damage, lost wages, or medical bills because of someone else’s wrongful actions.

Elements Needed to File a Denver Injury Lawsuit

There are four main elements an injured party (the “plaintiff”) must have for most personal injury lawsuits. The first is duty. The plaintiff must have proof the wrongdoer (the “defendant”) owed him or her a duty of care at the time of the incident in question. For example, during a car accident a driver owes other drivers and pedestrians a duty to drive safely. A doctor owes his/her patients a duty to do what is in the patient’s best health interests. A relationship with duties of care between the two parties must have existed.

Secondly, the plaintiff will need to prove the defendant breached his or her duty through some act of neglect or wanton disregard for the safety of others. A breach of duty can be anything that fails to fulfill the defendant’s duty of care to the plaintiff. Third, there must be a causal link between the defendant’s breach of duty and the accident. Finally, the plaintiff will need to prove he or she suffered damages in the accident, such as personal injuries or hospital bills. With these four elements, a plaintiff will have the groundwork for a personal injury claim.

Colorado Personal Injury Laws and Statutes

Personal injury claims in Colorado follow a strict set of rules, regulations, and requirements. When it comes to seeking damages after an accident, you must do so in accordance with accepted procedures and protocols. Otherwise, the courts will refuse to hear your case – even if you have all the elements and evidence to support your claim. There are dozens of federal and state laws and statutes that could influence your case, but here are three of the most important:

Deadline for filing

  •  In Colorado, you must bring your personal injury claim within two years of the date of your injury. If you do not discover your injuries until after the accident (e.g. if you don’t realize a surgeon left a sponge inside of you until years later when it causes health problems), the clock won’t start until the date of discovery. To file against a government entity, you have 180 days to bring a formal claim.

Colorado “fault” insurance laws

  •  Colorado has been a “fault” state regarding car accidents since a statutory change in 2003. This means that two parties must determine fault for a crash, and seek primary recovery through the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Accident victims have several potential means for recovery available to them, from filing an insurance claim to bringing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against the guilty driver.

Comparative fault

  • Colorado uses a “modified comparative fault” rule to judge fault for an accident. This means that even if an injured person shares some amount of fault for an accident, he or she could still recover at least a portion of damages. The courts will reduce the plaintiff’s award by an amount equivalent to his/her percentage of fault for causing the injury.

It’s important to speak to an injury attorney as soon as possible after you suffer an injury in Colorado. The sooner you reach out to a lawyer, the better your chances of staying within the confines of the state’s statutes of limitations. Prompt legal action can also help your case succeed, as the incident will still be fresh on everyone’s minds.
