How a Boulder Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help Build a Case for Compensation

Under Colorado law, you can obtain compensation from anyone who is responsible for the accident that hurt you. For example, if you were injured in a car accident, then the motorist who slammed into you or who forced you off the road is probably at fault for the wreck.

After an accident, you need to carefully document what happened. This documentation will depend on the circumstances, but can include:

  • Getting pictures of damage to your vehicle
  • Taking pictures of your physical injuries
  • Holding onto any product that injured you
  • Calling the police out to the scene of a car accident
  • Identifying any witnesses to the incident that injured you
  • Holding onto all medical records and bills

Many of our clients have received compensation to cover lost wages, medical care, and property damage. You might also qualify for pain and suffering and compensation for other intangible losses. Meet with a Boulder personal injury attorney to review your situation.

Identifying Who to Sue

As experienced Boulder personal injury lawyers, we have handled all kinds of cases. In our experience, you will likely sue the following people:

We have experience handling cases involving catastrophic injuries, brain injuries, and spinal cord damage. If a loved one died in an accident, a Boulder personal injury lawyer can help with a wrongful death lawsuit as well.

Average Settlement for a Car Accident

Every case is different, so speaking of “averages” is not very helpful. Instead, one of our Boulder personal injury lawyers will look at the totality of the circumstances to try and calculate the amount you can receive.

If you are injured in a car accident, you can receive money to repair your vehicle and be paid compensation to cover your medical bills and lost wages. Based on your injuries, you can also receive a sum of money to make up for your pain and suffering. A Boulder car accident attorney can use his experience to estimate the amount.

There are some limitations on settlement, however. For one, the defendant’s car insurance policy might represent the only money available to pay out compensation. Colorado currently only requires that its drivers carry $25,000 in bodily injury liability per victim, up to $50,000 per accident. Your injuries could be worth much more than that.

Also, Colorado recognizes contributory negligence (Colo. Rev. Stat. § 13-21-111). If you were 50% or more responsible for the accident, then you can’t receive compensation in a lawsuit. However, if you were less than 50%, then you can. However, your total compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault. Learn more about how much your car accident settlement could be with a Boulder car accident lawyer.

Time Limits

If you have been injured in a crash, slip and fall, or other incident, don’t delay talking to a lawyer. Under Colorado law, injured victims have only so much time to bring a lawsuit:

  • Personal injury: 2 years
  • Personal injury involving a motor vehicle: 3 years
  • Defective product: 2 years

Remember to get your lawsuit filed before the statute of limitations period runs out. If not, a judge can toss your case out of court, which will prevent you from receiving compensation.
