Understanding Personal Injury Law in Boulder, CO

You are protected under personal injury law if you suffer harm because of someone else’s act or failure to act. This is also known as tort law. In a successful tort action, recoverable losses warrant compensation from those who are responsible (or, as is most often the case, their insurance carriers).

Debbie is a Boulder personal injury lawyer proficient in building strong tort claims. She can determine whether the other party is liable and, if so, to what extent. Then, she will gather the evidence needed to prove as much, so you can seek compensation for the damages you’ve incurred.

Pursuing a Personal Injury Claim in Colorado

Many types of personal injuries exist. Although the circumstances vary from case to case, the key elements involved in personal injury claims are liability and damages. In addition, every claimant must also keep the statute of limitations in mind, or they may lose the chance to seek rightful compensation.

Liability 

Liability may be established through negligence or intentional misconduct. If a claimant wishes to pursue a negligence claim, they must show that the opposing party owed them a duty of care. This duty might have been established or it might be implied. Then, they must show how the other party proceeded to breach this duty. Claimants must also demonstrate that they suffered damages and that said damages were a result of the breach.

Damages

The importance of gathering and preserving evidence cannot be overstated. Things like accident reports, witness statements, and medical reports are all vital for your Boulder personal injury lawyer to demonstrate liability and establish the extent of your damages. Debbie will work closely with you to collect compelling proof and set your personal injury claim up for success.

Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations refers to the time limit in which a claim is viable. A Boulder personal injury lawyer will be well-versed in these filing deadlines, as well as the many factors that can impact them. For example, although the typical statute of limitations for personal injury actions is two years, Colorado provides one extra year if a motor vehicle is involved.

Steps to Take

Immediately after an accident, call the police and record the scene. This includes taking photographs and gathering the names and phone numbers of any witnesses. You should also seek medical care right away. Failing to do so could result in serious complications. It could also jeopardize the validity of your claim down the road.

Next, contact a personal injury lawyer in Boulder who will consider all the angles of bringing a claim. Make sure to find someone who is invested in your story and truly cares—like Debbie Taussig and her team.

Types of Personal Injury Matters

Some of the most common types of personal injury cases are those involving:

  • Car accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Slips and falls
  • Wrongful death
  • Trucking accidents
  • Scooter accidents

If the way in which you were hurt is not on this list, that doesn’t mean you don’t have grounds for a claim. As long as you were hurt through no fault of your own and you incurred an injury, it’s worth reaching out to a Boulder, Colorado attorney

Recoverable Damages by a Personal Injury Lawyer in Boulder, Colorado

There are dozens of damages a claimant can recover by filing a successful personal injury claim. The compensation that ultimately results depends on the nature of the injuries and the impact they will have on the claimant’s life in both the short and long term. Recoverable damages generally fall into two categories: economic and non-economic.

Economic damages are tangible losses that have occurred or might occur. They can be documented and include losses like medical expenses, lost wages, and sometimes property damage.

Non-economic damages are less clear-cut because they relate to subjective losses. These include pain and suffering and diminished quality of life. Naturally, they are more difficult to quantify. However, hiring an experienced personal injury attorney may increase the amount you can collect for these damages.

A knowledgeable personal injury lawyer in Boulder can examine the extent of your injuries and compile the necessary evidence to help you seek the maximum amount of compensation for both your economic and non-economic damages.
