Why You Need A Colorado Springs Personal Injury Attorney

Personal injury lawsuits usually have a lot of moving parts that need to be handled by properly trained attorneys and paralegals to ensure the best possible decisions are being made for the optimal outcome in your case. Many times this involves dealing with insurance companies and policies that can be very overwhelming for inexperienced parties.

Our attorneys have been dealing with insurance companies for decades and know how to protect your rights as well as get the insurance companies to pay what they really owe. We also help protect you from doing anything that may hurt your chances of getting full compensation from the at fault party. Every step of the way, Rector Law Firm will be there to represent you to the best of our abilities.

We Don’t Get Paid Unless You Do!

Part of our free consultation is laying everything out to decide if you have a case that has the potential to bring you a fair compensation package for your injuries and who should be at fault for what happened. If we determine that you have a good case, we take on the lawsuit without any upfront fees, meaning that you won’t pay a cent until we win your case and you receive a compensation package from the at fault party.

Don’t Wait To Be Medically Checked After An Accident

There are a variety of reasons why people do not get checked by a medical professional after an accident.  Some of those are: no health insurance, fear of the cost of the ambulance ride and hospital visit or maybe their primary care doctor does not see accident patients.

Often individuals think they are not injured and try to feel better by taking over-the-counter pain medications, soaking in the tub or just best rest – hoping the pain will go away.  When the pain does not go away, oftentimes they have waited a week, a month or even several months to see a medical provider.  We have found that in these situations it adversely affects their claim.

Insurance companies love to see a delay in treatment or gaps of treatment in care so they can put the blame back on the patient for not getting care and worsening their own condition.

There have been multiple recent cases in Colorado where jurors have come back with a verdict for the defendant because the plaintiff failed to get treatment and waited for some time to go to the doctor. What victims of accidents do not know is that there are plenty of doctors in the Colorado Springs area that are more than willing to provide care and wait to be paid on a claim once it resolves.

Damages & Compensation You May Be Entitled To

When evaluating the extent of damages to your person and property, there is a lot that goes into accounting for every last detail. In some cases you may be able to get compensation for medical bills, lost wages, injuries sustained and more. Some of the things we evaluate to determine how much you might be able to receive are as follows:

  • The type of injury and how severe it is
  • Medical bills from the injury
  • Income loss, past and future, loss of job, inability to go to work, etc.
  • How many parties are at fault and how much they were liable
  • Existing injuries that may affect current injuries or insurance coverage
  • Cost to cover any long term medical expenses to rehabilitate your injuries

These damages are broken up into three different classes:

  • Economic damages
  • Non-economic damages
  • Punitive damages(only available in some cases)

To find out what your case may be worth, we estimate all of this during your free consultation so feel free to give us a call anytime and get your case evaluated by Colorado Springs best personal injury lawyers.

How Long Do Personal Injury Cases Take To Resolve?

Due to the fact that every personal injury case is different, the time it takes to resolve a case varies greatly. Some cases are settled quickly but many require months of negotiation and many rounds of legal hoops to jump through in order to get the best results. In the event that we have to take your case to trial, the final outcome may not happen for a few years, so it is best to not expect anything from your case right away. Our attorneys will go over everything with you and give you an estimated timeline based on what your case will likely need to find a resolution.

There is a statute of limitations that applies to the amount of time you have to file your claim, which varies by the severity of the case so make sure to contact an attorney and get your case filed before time runs out.

Types Of Insurance That May Be Involved In Settling Your Case

Many personal injury cases in Colorado Springs end up involving numerous insurance providers and/or policies. This is why it is so important that you hire an attorney that has a lot of experience dealing with insurance companies and all types of policies. We fight to protect your rights and make the insurance companies hold up their end of the contract when the time comes. Some of the types of insurance that may be relevant with your case are below:

  • Health Insurance
  • Life Insurance
  • Disability
  • Commercial Property Insurance
  • Commercial Liability Insurance
  • Business Owner Insurance
  • Auto Insurance
  • Homeowners Insurance
  • Workers Compensation

Don’t let the insurance companies take advantage of you. Let us represent you and fight to get what you deserve from the at fault parties. With decades of experience backing us, you can be sure that Rector Law Firm will provide an exceptional legal representation in any personal injury case. We are here to help YOU, not the insurance company’s bottom line.

What Will We Discuss During Your Free Personal Injury Case Consultation?

There are many different aspects of each different case that will need to be discussed thoroughly with your attorney to ensure we have an in-depth knowledge of your case so we can make the correct decisions on how to move forward. Make sure to tell us every detail as leaving something out could hurt the future potential of your case or catch us off guard during the trial. Below are some of the things we will discuss during your consultation:
