What is Personal Injury?
Personal injuries involve the negligence of another person or entity that leads to your emotional, physical, and financial damages. These accidents can result in significant damages, such as lifelong injuries that require constant care, disability accommodations, medical expenses, lost wages, and more. You may also experience emotional consequences, such as chronic pain, mental anguish, and loss of quality of life.
Many types of accidents can lead to personal injuries, but not all instances of these accidents qualify for these claims. To claim compensation for your damages, you will need to prove that the person responsible for your injuries acted in negligence, breaching his or her duty of care to you. Jordan Law can help you establish this fact.
Your Legal Options After a Personal Injury
The moments after a personal injury can be overwhelming, but it is important to know you have options to collect compensation for your damages. Colorado operates on a traditional fault-based system for insurance claims, which provides you three main pathways to compensation.
- You can file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company, if applicable to your case.
- You can file a claim with your insurance company, if applicable to your case and if you have the appropriate coverage.
- You can file a lawsuit against the at-fault party in Colorado civil court.
Many types of personal injury cases involve insurance companies, such as car accidents and truck collisions. However, going through the insurance process may not be appropriate for your claim, especially if your damages exceed the at-fault party’s policy limits. Speak to an attorney at Jordan Law to discuss which pathway is right for you.
