Why You Should Hire a Fort Collins Personal Injury Lawyer

Many people would like to handle their cases themselves, and we don’t blame them. Handling your case gives you a sense of control. Also, many people are worried about the costs of hiring an attorney and fear they will have to pay all the compensation they receive to their attorney.

However, it is ultimately more beneficial to go with hiring a Fort Collins personal injury attorney to represent you after an accident.

Here's why.

Let’s say you are involved in a car wreck. Because you are focused on your recovery, you might not have the time to gather the necessary evidence to make a claim. Remember, after an accident, you need to establish who is “at fault,” which is the legal term for blame. Every case begins with a simple question: Who caused the accident? This person will need to pay compensation to cover your damages.

By hiring a Fort Collins car accident attorney, you can focus on your recovery while they handle the rest.

Your lawyer will gather evidence, interview witnesses, and document how much the accident has cost you financially. An experienced Fort Collins personal injury attorney can also negotiate aggressively with our state’s gigantic insurance companies to obtain the maximum compensation allowed under Colorado law.

Identifying Parties at Fault

The person or entity you sue will depend on the circumstances. There is potentially a long list of defendants you can hold legally responsible for your injuries after an accident in Fort Collins:

  • Car accident. You might sue the driver who negligently crashed into you. If a defective car part is responsible, you can sue the manufacturer. When a defective road is to blame, then the entity responsible for the road might need to pay compensation, including the state.
  • Truck accident. Our clients have brought successful claims against the truck driver, trucking company, truck manufacturer, or loading company.
  • Slip and fall. The business or property owner in control of the premises can be sued when they fail to use proper care to keep the property safe.
  • Sexual assault. Our clients can always sue the assailant who assaulted them. However, other businesses or organizations might be to blame. If you were assaulted in a hotel with defective security, then the hotel could be to blame. If a teacher assaulted you, then you might sue the school district.
  • Defective products. The company that designed or manufactured a product can be on the hook for compensation when the product injures someone.

After an accident, no one expects an injured victim to properly identify the party to sue. There are many variables in play, and often you need to perform at least a preliminary investigation.

This is why hiring a personal injury attorney in Fort Collins is the right thing to do.

Receive the Compensation You Deserve

Many of our clients receive money to pay for medical bills and replace lost wages. If the property was damaged during the accident, they can also receive money to repair or replace it.

Many people are unaware they also qualify for pain and suffering damages to make up for the bodily and mental pain they are experiencing.

The amount you qualify for is difficult to determine since there is no real market value for pain. But an experienced Fort Collins injury lawyer can use their experience to help you understand how much your injuries are truly worth.
