What Kinds of Advice Can a Colorado Injury Lawyer Give You?

Did you suffer an injury as the result of someone else’s negligence? If so, you should contact a Colorado injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident. Your attorney will be able to give you advice that will help protect your claim so that your case can have the best outcome.

THERE MUST BE A BREACH OF DUTY

In order to make a claim for damages, there must have been a breach of duty, or negligence on the part of another person who caused your injury, and you must have suffered harm. Your attorney will be able to ascertain if you have a valid claim.

DOCUMENT EVERYTHING

If you have a valid claim, your lawyer will want you to establish a medical record if you haven’t already done so. This is to ensure that there will be evidence that you sought and received treatment after the injury. Bear in mind that some types of injuries may not show up until weeks or even months later, so you should attend to this even if you are not in pain. Additionally, you will probably be asked to gather the following:

  • Any photos of the accident and injuries
  • Any receipts for medical treatment
  • Copies of any statements made to the police, claims adjusters or others
  • Copies of any correspondence with the insurance company
