Why Select a Denver Personal Injury Lawyer from Levine Law
If you have been injured due to negligence or wrongdoing, you have certain legal rights. Colorado law allows injury victims to be “made whole,” or compensated for both the economic and the non-economic losses associated with their injuries. To obtain compensation for your losses, you can settle a case outside of court by coming to an agreement with the auto insurance company or person who caused your injuries. You can also handle your case in court by filing a lawsuit.
Whether you plan to settle or pursue legal action, you may wonder whether you can handle your case on your own. The reality is that, while you can handle some simple cases on your own, it is in your best interest to hire an experienced Denver accident law firm.
How to Determine if You Need an Attorney After a Car Crash
Sometimes car accidents just happen, other times a driver causes an accident. Colorado is an “at-fault” state. This means when a driver causes an accident, they are held financially responsible. Their insurance company will cover all the costs of a victim’s injuries and property damage. The other driver may be at fault if the accident was caused due to their:
- Drunk driving
- Texting and driving
- Distracted driving
- Aggressive driving/road rage
- Failure to yield
A Denver accident lawyer can work with you to prove the other driver is “at-fault” and hold them financially accountable. Holding the other driver financially accountable isn’t as simple as it sounds, especially if you suffered serious or permanent injuries.
In some situations, an injured person may share some of the blame for the accident. This can reduce the value of the person’s claim.
Most accident claims are based on negligence, a legal theory that holds people and entities liable when they do not live up to a specific “duty of care.”
Car, truck and other drivers, for instance, generally owe others on the road a duty to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner. That means staying awake and alert behind the wheel, following traffic laws and refraining from dangerous behavior like drinking and driving.
Property owners generally owe a duty to keep the premises in a reasonably safe condition. They are also expected to warn people of safety hazards on the property that the owner knows about or should know about through reasonable inspection.
Injured people can have their compensation reduced or eliminated if they share in the negligence leading to the accident.
A seasoned Denver personal injury attorney will point out that Colorado is a comparative negligence state. That means that a person who is found to be less than 50% responsible for an accident will have his or her money damages reduced proportionately. A person who is found 50% or more at fault is barred from obtaining compensation for his or her injuries under state law.
Take motorcycle accidents, for instance.
Bikers are generally expected to operate their motorcycles in a reasonably safe way. They are also expected to make reasonable efforts to protect themselves.
Although motorcyclists are not legally required in Colorado to wear helmets, these basic safety devices have been clearly proven to help prevent injuries and save lives. A biker who opts against wearing a helmet and later suffers a head injury in a crash may very well be considered partly to blame for the injury and have his or her compensation reduced accordingly.
Emotional and Psychological Impact of Injuries
Accidents can cause a wide range of physical damage, including catastrophic and even life-threatening injuries. But they can also take a tremendous emotional and psychological toll on everyone involved, including the injured person and his or her family.
First, there is the pain, shock and overall confusion that often comes in the hours and days following an accident. Then, there is the longer-term impact of any injuries on a person’s ability to enjoy day-to-day activities and earn a living.
Post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and depression are common in these situations. Treatment for these conditions is often effective, but it can also be expensive.
Colorado law generally caps the compensation for “non-economic” damages at $250,000. The cap increases to $300,000 in medical malpractice cases and up to $500,000 in certain situations where there is clear and convincing evidence of the injuries. There is no limit on economic damages, like medical bills and missed wages stemming from an accident.
To get compensation for the emotional and psychological impact of an accident, you have to be able to prove that impact and the suffering that it caused. This can be more difficult than proving physical injuries because there is often less “hard” evidence.
Whether it is a physical injury or mental and emotional distress, anyone injured in an accident in Colorado has the right to take legal action against those responsible. A Denver personal injury lawyer at our firm can help you maximize your compensation.
Settling or Going to Court, Victims Need a Denver Accident Lawyer
Hiring an attorney is a wise decision for many reasons. First and foremost, hiring an accident law firm can help ensure that you secure all of the compensation that the law entitles you to.
In the vast majority of injury cases, you will negotiate with an insurance company (a car insurance company, a home insurance company, a medical malpractice insurer, etc.) to obtain compensation. In cases where no insurer is involved, you’ll likely be dealing with a sophisticated defendant, such as a company that manufactured a defective product.
Whether you deal with an insurer or with another organization, you’ll face professionals whose interests are directly contrary to your own. Insurance companies and lawsuit defendants want to pay you the minimum amount they can get away with – ideally, nothing at all. You, on the other hand, want to make sure you receive the money you need to take care of your needs and live a comfortable life despite your injuries, especially if your injuries prevent you from working.
These companies have sophisticated legal teams working on their behalf. Hiring a Denver accident attorney levels the playing field, giving you the leverage you need to protect your rights.
An EXPERIENCED Denver Accident Attorney:
- Knows the law and the types and amounts of compensation that you should receive.
- Knows the deadlines for filing a claim and the proper procedures for filing a case and gathering evidence.
- Knows how to negotiate a fair settlement, how to gather evidence to build a case, and how to advocate for you in court.
- These are invaluable skills to have on your side. With the experience and knowledge of a Denver accident and personal injury lawyer, you can benefit fully from the important protections that Colorado law provides.

How Much Time Do I Have to File a Lawsuit in Colorado?
If you or a loved one has been hurt in an accident, you will have a limited period of time (known as the statute of limitations) to file a lawsuit to recover compensation for your injuries and damages. Once the statute of limitations has passed, you will lose your right bring your case.
In Colorado, the statute of limitations will depend upon the specific type of claim you are bringing forth. For instance, a person injured in a car accident will generally have three years from the date of the accident to file a legal action; whereas a victim of a slip and fall or other general personal injury action will only have two years to file a case. The deadlines can be confusing and there are certain exceptions to the rules, so it is always best to seek advice from a qualified Denver accident lawyer as soon as possible after an accident has taken place.
How Much is My Claim Worth?
Your potential compensation is unique to your case. The extent of your injuries, what you do for work and whether you may have played a role in causing the accident are just a few examples. After you’ve met with us and explained your situation, then your Denver accident attorney will tell you exactly how much we believe we can recover on your behalf.
How Much Does It Cost to Hire an Accident Lawyer?
Most Colorado accident attorneys accept payment via contingency fees. This means that your lawsuit is free unless we win you case. You never pay anything out of pocket, and our attorneys only recover our fees and costs if we are successful in helping you recover compensation.
