How to Get a Personal Injury Settlement in Colorado
Why Sloat & Nicholson P.C. is one of the top Colorado personal injury settlement lawyers in Boulder? There are a number of ways that you or your family members may be unexpectedly injured. In most cases, injuries are caused by motor vehicle accidents where one driver has been negligent while operating their vehicle. Getting a proper accident settlement can be challenging if you are depending on the other person’s insurance to take care of you.
WHERE TO BEGIN
The first step after an accident has occurred is contacting an attorney who will represent you. They will begin the process of tracing all the details of your case and gathering eyewitness accounts about what happened. Their diligence in recording the details of your case can make or break it in front of a judge. You need to know that you have someone who is working to accurately catalog all available information about your accident before everyone else has gone back to living their lives and forgotten the finer points.
If the team at Sloat & Nicholson P.C. reviews your case and determines the other person was at fault, they will begin the process of filing suit or dealing with the other person’s insurance agency. The insurance company may offer a small settlement to get you off their backs immediately, but that may not be fair compensation for your time, medical bills and lost wages depending on the severity of your injury. Contact an attorney and discuss your options before you agree to any Colorado personal injury settlement that is being offered.
When it comes to getting the best possible Colorado personal injury settlement, you need a team who is actively working on your behalf to gather facts and build a strong case against the other party. If you are not at fault for the accident and have suffered personal injury that has cost you time and money, you may be eligible for a real settlement from insurance that they would not willingly offer you on your own.
