A personal injury can leave your life in turmoil. While you may be struggling to physically and emotionally recover the injury, the financial stresses that tend to arise during the recovery process can compound your struggles.

The good news, however, is that you are not alone and that you can rely on a Steamboat Springs lawyer at Bell & Pollock, P.C. to help you get through these difficult times, advocate your rights and help you secure the justice and compensation to which you may be entitled.

To shed some light on how our Steamboat Springs lawyers can help you, below, we will answer some common questions about personal injury cases.

Personal Injury Cases & Compensation: FAQs

Q – How do I know if I have a personal injury case?

A – Call us today, and we will tell you if you have a case. In general, however, you may have a personal injury case if someone else’s careless or reckless actions caused an accident or incident that resulted in your injuries. More specifically, such negligence can present itself as:

  • Driver negligence in motor vehicle accidents
  • Building owner negligence in slip and falls
  • Operator negligence or manufacturer negligence in recreational accidents.

Be aware, however, that there are many more situations that can give rise to personal injury claims. So, again, we encourage you to contact us for a free, no obligations case evaluation to find out if you have a legal claim.

Q – How long can I wait to file my case?

A – Colorado laws provide two years for you to file a personal injury case. This two-year time frame, which is referred to as the statute of limitations for a case, starts on the date of the accident (or the date on which the injuries were first discovered).

While it can be easy to believe that two years is a long time, it can go by very quickly, especially when you are focused on your recovery. Additionally, the longer you wait to file a case, the more likely it will be that:

  • Your case will become weaker, as the available evidence to support it can get lost or become unavailable over time.
  • You will end up running out the statute of limitations.

So, the takeaway here is that it is best not to wait to file these claims. Getting them started as soon as possible is pivotal to ensuring you have the strongest possible case moving forward.

Q – How long will it take to resolve my case?

A – We cannot answer this question without first reviewing the facts of your case. This is because every case is different, and the details of a case will impact:

  • How complicated the case is
  • Who the liable party or parties are
  • How long it will take to resolve the case.

Contact us for a free case review if you need answers about how long it may take to bring your case to a successful resolution.

Q – How much is my personal injury case worth?

A – Again, the details of your situation will impact the value of your case, and our lawyers can provide you with a more specific answer regarding how much your case is worth during an initial consultation.

What we can tell you, however, is that factors like the following may end up increasing the value of a personal injury case:

  • More severe or permanent injuries
  • More property damage resulting from an accident
  • Liable parties having a history of acting negligently or with disregard for public safety/human life.

Q – Do I really need to hire a lawyer to help me with a personal injury case?

A – Yes, you need to retain an attorney if you are serious about protecting your rights and getting the best results from your case.

This is because, with a lawyer on your side, defendants and insurance companies will not be able to easily compromise your rights or try to undercut your compensation. Additionally, an attorney can help you pursue all available legal remedies, positioning you to get the most for your claim.

Q – How can I get my personal injury case started?

A – Simply contact us. We can initiate your case for no cost, getting you on the path to justice and financial recovery ASAP.
