In many ways, an accident can be devastating. Whether you’ve broken a bone in a car accident, hurt your back in a slip-and-fall, or suffered any number of personal injuries, a personal injury lawyer can help. 

Following a personal injury, it can be challenging to adapt to the new physical restrictions of your recovery. You may have hospital or doctor’s bills—a financial stressor made worse by time away from work. Finally, dealing with the emotional consequences of knowing your accident was caused by the carelessness of another can leave you despondent.

Fortunately, a personal injury lawyer can help you take action. By filing a civil suit against the at-fault party, you could recover damages for your injuries. The process can be challenging, however—between investigating your case, filing paperwork on time, and even negotiating a fair settlement with the insurance company. Let our Denver CO Personal Injury Lawyer review your case.


How to File a Personal Injury Claim: Essentials

Accidents can cause a broad range of physical damages, which are known as personal injuries. Personal injuries may vary from minor to severe. It is also common to classify injuries as temporary or permanent, or total or partial, according to the new limitations these may impose on your capacity to work or care for yourself. The following are some examples of personal injuries:

  • Back, spinal cord, or lumbar injury
  • Brain injury
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Burns
  • Lacerations
  • And others

Personal injury law – also known as tort law – is a branch of civil law that aims to protect you when you or your property has been damaged by someone else’s action, or, in some cases, inaction. At the heart of personal injury law is a claim for damages and negligence: in order to file a successful claim, you must demonstrate that another party acted negligently, which resulted in your injuries.

And why should you file a claim? As the victim of personal injury at the hands of another party, filing a claim allows you to claim monetary compensation, also known as damages, from the at-fault person or group. There are a variety of damages that may be available to you in a personal injury action depending on the nature and degree of the damages you’ve received. In the past, personal injury victims were successful in seeking compensation for damages of both economic and purely non-economic nature. Among them are:

  • Temporary or permanent disability 
  • Property damages
  • Loss of income
  • Medical bills, including emergency fees and bills for ongoing treatment 
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Punitive damages

It can be sometimes difficult to assess the true value of your personal injury claim. Therefore, speaking with a trusted doctor can not only help you seek treatment for your injuries but also get a better idea of the medical expenses you may incur. With that cost of treatment as the main stone, your case can be strengthened by engaging an experienced personal injury lawyer to carry out the process of civil discovery.
