What You Need to Know About Hiring Colorado Injury Lawyers

You’re a Colorado resident, you have a serious injury claim, and you’re wondering whether you need an attorney well versed in Colorado personal injury law. While there are numerous Colorado injury lawyers across the state, picking one at random is ill-advised. Before you select one to help you with your case, consider the following and make sure you’re placing your trust – and your finances – in capable hands.

What Kind of Assistance You Need

Whether you’re struggling to fill out complicated paperwork or need an experienced professional to go to bat for you against an insurance company, a personal injury lawyer can take the load off your back so that you have more time to concentrate on what’s most important – your own recovery.

How Much Experience a Prospective Injury Attorney Has

While limited experience doesn’t necessarily equal incompetence, just as you wouldn’t leave a two-week-old with a first-time babysitter, you don’t want to place such an important matter in the hands of a total novice. Ask any prospective lawyer exactly how many similar cases they’ve handled, and of those, how many they have won. While past performance certainly doesn’t guarantee future results, it will give you a good idea of your chances of winning, should you choose to move forward.

How Much You Should Expect to Spend

If a prospective injury lawyer immediately starts a discussion of what you should expect to pay regardless of the outcome of the case, you should probably reconsider hiring them in the first place. Most Colorado injury lawyers offer services on a “contingency” basis, meaning that you aren’t responsible for paying them unless you win your case. Discussing payment beforehand is a red flag, and it can indicate a lack of confidence in winning your case.

When it comes to the convoluted legal system, having a competent, knowledgeable attorney proficient in Colorado personal injury law makes all the difference. Insurance companies will recognize a trusted and experienced lawyer, and are often more likely to negotiate with you when you have an informed and hard-working attorney on your side. Call 303-447-1144 today to schedule a free consultation with experienced Colorado injury lawyers at Sloat & Nicholson, P.C.
