Frequently Asked Questions on Aurora Personal Claims
What Is Negligence and How Does It Impact Your Personal Injury Claim?
By definition, negligence is the failure to exercise reasonable care or consideration under certain circumstances. In a personal injury claim, anyone found to be negligent can be held responsible for your injuries, financial damages, or other losses. While the concept of negligence may seem straightforward, proving it in a personal injury case can be complicated.
Defendants, especially corporations, insurance companies, hospitals, etc., will use all possible resources to deflect blame or guilt. Part of what we do is conduct a thorough independent investigation to find evidence proving negligence against the defendants.
What Happens If I Sustain Injuries on Someone Else’s Property? Can I Recover Damages for My Injuries?
All property owners have a legal duty to protect visitors from injuries that could occur on their premises. Depending on the relationship between the landowner and the visitor, the landowner must take certain steps to remove hazards or warn visitors and tenants of possible dangerous conditions. Colorado has specific premises liability laws that allow injured victims to file a claim for injuries sustained on someone else’s property. If you can prove the property owner acted negligently, you could collect financial compensation.
I’m an Injured Railroad Worker. Do I Have Any Legal Rights?
Injured railroad workers have legal rights. First, you must file a claim for benefits outlined in the Federal Employer’s Liability Act (FELA). FELA is somewhat like workers’ compensation programs, but this is specific for railroad employees only. And you must show negligence on the part of your employer to collect benefits.
Who Has the Right to File a Wrongful Death Claim in Colorado?
Like other states, Colorado has a wrongful death statute that outlines who has the legal right to bring a claim when a family member dies in a personal injury accident. During the first year following the victim’s death, only the spouse has the legal right to bring a wrongful death claim. In the second year following death, both the surviving spouse and surviving children can bring a claim. If the deceased had no surviving spouse or children, then the deceased’s parents can bring a wrongful death claim.
What Is My Aurora Personal Injury Claim Worth? Is There an Average Amount for Which Cases Resolve?
One of the most common questions we get from prospective clients pertains to the potential settlement value of their claim. Unfortunately, no two cases are alike, and there is no average amount cases resolve for. You need an independent evaluation of your case. When you retain our Aurora injury attorneys, we will take a comprehensive look at your case. Our priority is to give you a realistic range that your case could be worth. We won’t give you a useless average that may or may not be anywhere close to the actual value of your claim.
Instead, we look at all your medical expenses, possible property repair estimates, lost wages, future expected medical costs and loss of earning capacity, and any other accident-related expenses. We also provide a figure for your non-economic damages such as your physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of consortium, and more.
In limited cases, you might be eligible to receive punitive damages or exemplary damages. This amount is not necessarily intended to compensate you for your injuries, but it’s to punish the defendant for their reckless or egregious conduct and deter them from acting in the same manner again in the future. One possible example is injuries sustained in an accident involving a drunk driver.
