Personal Injury Attorney in Colorado Springs

FIGHTING FOR THE INJURED

What happens during a personal injury law suit?

Each personal injury case is unique, and may take several months or even years to settle a claim or complete a trial. Typically a claim will go through the following stages, though not necessarily in this order:

  • Claim Assessment – When a claim is filed, an assessment is made to ensure you have a valid case. This assessment examines injury/accident details, evidence, damages suffered, medical expenses, cost of future care, and the negligence of the other party during your free consultation.
  • Investigation – If you have a qualified case, a thorough examination of your injury will begin immediately to preserve evidence. Negligent parties will also be notified, and demand will be issued for the preservation of all evidence, including photographs, medications, medical records, and other data.
  • File Complaint – Once your evidence is preserved, a lawsuit will be filed against all parties who are deemed negligent in the accident/injury.
  • Case Discovery – This is where your attorneys may request information and documentation from the other parties, conduct depositions, interview witnesses, and obtain expert analyses, injury reconstruction, and medical evidence to build a solid case.
  • Mediation – Victims and defendants may attend mediation to determine if a fair settlement can be reached. During mediation, a negotiator will attempt to make a settlement to compensate for pain, suffering, and other damages. The majority of personal injury lawsuits may settle before going to trial.
  • Trial – If no settlement is reached in mediation, the lawsuit will proceed to trial. A jury or judge will hear the case.  Attorney’s will present evidence and participate in closing arguments.
  • Settlement – The judge or jury will then determine fault and decide on the amount of compensation to award for your losses.
