Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I Have A Case?

    A personal injury is any psychological or physical injury that results from the acts or negligence of another. The simple rule of negligence is that an individual or company acted unreasonably and caused injuries or damages.

  • What May I Recover In A Personal Injury Case?

    Colorado recognizes economic and non-economic damages. For example, lost wages, past and future medical bills, pain and suffering, and more.

  • What Is My Case Worth?

    The amount of compensation you may be able to recover will depend on the specifics of your claim. There is no “normal” amount for an injury victim to receive in a settlement, and you should not trust a lawyer who tells you there is. Your attorney may be able to provide an estimate of what a fair settlement looks like when you explain your case, but to fully understand what your claim is worth, they must know your medical history, current diagnosis, and prognosis; how much you earn in your job (and how your earning capacity may be affected long-term by an injury); and other details about your day-to-day life, so they can evaluate how it may change and calculate how to adequately compensate for these losses.

  • What Happens During My First Appointment With Denver Trial Lawyers ®?

    Our initial consultation is free. You will meet with an experienced Denver personal injury attorney to discuss your case. You may also discuss the details of your case. We will also cover the upfront costs and expenses during your case. We only take a fee if we win.

  • How Do We Assist You To Obtain A Fair Settlement?

    We will work with you to present a demand letter and evaluate a fair range for settlement. The insurance company for the defendant (or your own carrier pursuant to your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage) may present us with a settlement offer, which you may or may not accept.

  • How Long Will It Take To Get A Trial Date?

    This varies greatly depending on the expected length of the trial and the court’s docket. Each courtroom has its own docket and timeframes. Once a lawsuit has been filed we can speak to you directly about the jurisdiction and individual courtroom practices and explain the anticipated schedule.

  • How Will You Investigate My Case?

    We will ask you to sign a HIPAA release so that we may obtain ambulance, hospital, and relevant medical records. We will also get paperwork from a variety of law enforcement and investigating agencies.

  • How Will I Pay For Legal Fees?

    Denver Trial Lawyers ® operates on a contingency fee basis, meaning that if there is no financial recovery you will not owe any legal fees.

  • How Are Personal Injury Claims Calculated?

    That is the ultimate question. We will analyze all of the issues regarding liability, comparative fault, economic losses, impairment, and permanent injury before providing you with a reasonable settlement range for your case.

  • Will You Help Me Prepare For Settlement Conferences, My Deposition And Trial?

    We will take an extraordinary amount of time to make sure that you thoroughly understand what to expect at each step of the litigation process. Generally speaking, we will gather information and meet regarding a settlement demand before filing a lawsuit.

  • How Do I Know If I’m Getting A Fair Settlement Or If I Should Go To Trial?

    This is the key question in every case. We have handled thousands of personal injury cases and we routinely review the Jury Verdict Reporter which publishes every jury verdict in the State. Please remember that your case is like no other and accepting a settlement proposal is a complicated and important decision.
