FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS

A personal injury claim is a legal claim through which an injured individual seeks compensation from the party responsible for causing their injury. This compensation may cover medical bills, permanent impairment, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

The first step in an auto accident is to call the police, make sure they come to the scene and investigate. If you are able, take pictures of the damage done to both vehicles. DO NOT TELL ANYONE YOU ARE SORRY. If you apologize, this could lead to the other person claiming you were at fault. If there are witnesses, gather their names and phone numbers so that you or your attorney can get their statement at a later time. If you are injured, seek medical treatment immediately. Getting immediate medical attention could save your life from injuries such as a brain bleed or punctured lung. After these steps have been completed You should also contact an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss your legal options.

The statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim varies by state and type of claim. In Colorado, when you are involved in a Motor Vehicle Accident, you have 3 years from the date of the collision to settle your claim or file suit; for a slip and fall claim, you have 2 years from the date of the collision to settle your claim; if your claim in any way involves a government agent or agency, you have 180 days from the date of the incident to provide them with notice of your claim; all other claims typically range from one to three years. It is important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible to ensure that your claim is filed within the statute of limitations.

Most claimants who settle their claim without an attorney are limiting their ability to collect the full value of their claim. This is because many people do not realize the full extent of damages they are able to recover for. When contacting and hiring an attorney, you are ensuring that every avenue of recoverable damages are sought.
