Have you been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else? Worse yet, did your loved one die in an accident that someone else’s carelessness caused? If so, our sympathies are with you. The shock and grief that you must be experiencing is likely to be intense. Meanwhile, you may be struggling to pay medical bills and make ends meet due to loss of income.
Nobody can undo an accident. A silver lining, however, is the fact that Colorado personal injury law allows you to seek full financial compensation for all your losses including medical bills, lost work time, pain and suffering, and more. The initiative, however, must come from you—or from your lawyers. The Pueblo personal injury lawyers at Gerash Steiner Blanton, P.C., know just how to assert your claim, and we will fight for 100% of the amount you deserve.
What a Top-Tier Personal Injury Law Firm Can Do for You
Our firm’s Pueblo injury lawyers can help you pursue your claim in many different ways. Following is a list of only a few of those ways.
Make Sure You Receive Proper Medical Care
We can use our experience representing injured victims to make sure you get the best medical care, provided that you contact us early enough. Eric Steiner, one of our Pueblo injury attorneys, practiced medicine in Denver for more than 18 years.
Investigate Your Claim
Our Pueblo personal injury attorneys possess the resources to investigate your claim far more thoroughly than you are likely to be able to and far more thoroughly than a sole practitioner or a “jack of all trades” attorney with little experience in personal injury law.
Determine the True Value of Your Claim
Only a thorough investigation of the facts combined with years of personal injury legal experience is likely to be sufficient to uncover the true value of your claim. Your claim is probably worth more than you think it is. Determining its value is critical, especially if you suffered long-term injuries that will cost you money in the future. After all, once your claim is paid, you can’t come back and ask for more later.
Negotiate with the Insurance Company or the Defendant
If you were seriously injured, or if you are grieving the untimely death of your loved one in an accident, you are in no position to face an insurance adjuster whose sole goal is to deny or minimize your claim. These people are professional negotiators, and you need professional negotiators (like us) to handle them.
File a Lawsuit in Your Name
Filing a lawsuit doesn’t mean you will necessarily go to trial. In fact, most of the time the parties to a lawsuit settle before trial. Initiating a lawsuit gives you access to certain evidence in the opposing party’s possession that you might never see otherwise. We will draft a formal lawsuit complaint with the meticulous care it deserves.
Gather Admissible Evidence
Gathering admissible evidence is one way to expedite a settlement. Once your opponent knows that you have enough evidence to win, they will seek to avoid trial by settling the case. Just in case they don’t, however, strong evidence is always useful at trial.
Draft a Solid Settlement Agreement
A single error in a settlement agreement could result in drastic negative consequences for you. We have drafted many settlement agreements in the past, and we will draft one that fully protects your interests.
Advocate for You at Trial (If Necessary)
Only a small percentage of our client’s claims make it to trial. That is because we settle the vast majority of claims outside of court. We win most cases that do make it to trial, however, and our successful track record at trial proves we mean business.
All Major Case Decisions Are Yours Alone to Make
You don’t need to worry that we will accept a paltry settlement on your behalf. You must approve all major case decisions, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Other than that, however, our goal is to take the stress off of you so that you can concentrate on regaining your health and your sense of well-being.
Don’t Worry That You Can’t Afford Us一We Won’t Ask You for a Dime Until You Get Your Settlement
We work on a contingency basis. What this means is that we charge no upfront fees, and unless we win your case, your legal bill will total precisely $0.00. Once your money comes in, we will take a pre-agreed percentage of your recovery. We do business this way because we are successful in almost all our clients’ claims. We care more about the strength of your claim that we do the size of your wallet.
Your Secrets Are Safe With Us
Any communication between us is entirely confidential unless you give us specific permission to divulge it. We are bound by the sacred principle of attorney-client privilege, which is a legal as well as an ethical requirement.
Start Today: There’s No Time Like the Present
When it comes to personal injury, the sooner you begin building your claim, the better your chances of full compensation. Remember that our practice areas include just about every facet of personal injury and wrongful death law.
The Best Way to Avoid a Trial Is to Know How to Win One
So many lawyers seek personal injury settlements without the successful trial experience they need as leverage to secure full compensation. Defendants and insurance companies do not respect these legal team. They do, however, respect us. In fact, the mere mention of our name is likely to change the attitude of the opposing party.
