Pursuing a Personal Injury Claim in Colorado

Although there are many different types of personal injuries and their particular circumstances will vary from case to case, their main purpose is to offer protection to those who sustain severe injuries because of someone else’s negligent actions. The main issues involved in any personal injury case, regardless of its cause, are liability and damages.

If a claimant wishes to pursue a negligence claim for their injury, there are certain elements they must prove. First, they need to show that the negligent party owed them a legal duty of care and that the defendant breached that duty. They must then prove that they suffered an injury and that the injury resulted from that breach.

Unlike negligence actions, an intentional tort claim in a personal injury case will arise when the defendant intentionally or deliberately harms the claimant. Intentional torts may arise from assault, battery, or intentional infliction of emotional distress. As a deliberate act must be proven, these types of cases may be more difficult to bring, but the potential damages may be broader and more substantial than in a negligence case.

Types of Personal Injury Matters

The type of personal injury case will depend on how the injury’s cause, its severity, and the parties involved. Some of the more common types of personal injury cases that arise include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Slips and falls
  • Product defects
  • Medical malpractice
  • Brain injuries

Regardless of the type of injury, a dedicated Boulder personal injury lawyer could determine the best way forward to recover all the compensation due to the claimant.
