Most people go through life without ever needing to hire a personal injury attorney. But, accidents happen; and, if you or a loved one has been injured, hiring an attorney could be your only option for securing the financial resources you need to recover. So, when is it time to hire an injury attorney? Here are 10 common scenarios in where it makes sense to schedule a free consultation:
10 Reasons to Speak with a Denver Injury Attorney
1. You Were Injured in an Auto Accident
Auto accidents cases are easily the most common type of personal injury claim. While you can try to deal with the insurance companies on your own, they will try to take advantage of you, and an experienced attorney will be able to help you collect just compensation.
2. You Were Hit by a Car While Walking, Running or Riding Your Bicycle
Pedestrian and bicycle accidents are common in Denver as well. We routinely represent people who were injured while walking to work, exercising and enjoying time in the sun.
3. You Were Injured at Work
If you were injured at work, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, and you may also have a personal injury claim against a third party. Collecting workers’ compensation benefits is not easy (and they are limited by law), and it will take an experienced attorney to help maximize your financial recovery.
4. You Slipped or Tripped on Someone Else’s Property
Slips, trips and falls are common types of work-related and non-work-related accidents. If you were injured at a business, at someone else’s house, at a government building or on public property, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
5. You Were Injured in a Skiing or Snowboarding Accident
You may also have a claim for compensation if you fell while skiing or snowboarding outside of Denver. This is true even if you signed a waiver.
6. You are Concerned about Medical Malpractice
Medical mistakes are far more common than any of us would like to believe, and they are the third-leading cause of death in the United States. If you have a claim for malpractice, you will need an experienced attorney to stand up for your legal rights.
7. You are Concerned about Nursing Home Neglect or Abuse
The statistics on nursing home neglect and abuse are alarming as well. If you are concerned about an aging loved one’s health or safety, you should speak with an attorney right away.
8. You Have Been Diagnosed with a Catastrophic Injury
Numerous other types of accidents can support claims for financial compensation as well. If you were seriously injured in any type of accident in which someone else may possibly have been to blame, it will be worth your time to speak with an attorney.
9. Your Child Has Been Diagnosed with a Birth Injury or Traumatic Injury
From medical mistakes during childbirth to sports accidents, there are unfortunately numerous ways that our children can suffer traumatic injuries. If your child has been injured, you may be entitled to compensation for your hospital bills and other losses.
