Personal Injury law deals with seeking compensation for harm caused by accidental occurrences that are not the client’s fault. Claims may be due to motor vehicle or pedestrian accidents, wrongful death, dog bites, slip and fall accidents, distracted drivers, defective products, or bad faith insurance practices. And resulting harm can be more than physical injury. It may also include emotional pain and suffering, loss of wages or earnings, or loss of personal property. You need an experienced Denver personal injury lawyer on your side.
Motor Vehicle Accidents are the leading cause of personal injury in the United States. Injuries vary from simple soreness to paralysis and even death. Many people may not experience symptoms until days or weeks after the accident, nor do they realize these types of injuries can have a long-term impact on their quality of life. If you have been in an accident, it is imperative to have a medical examination as soon as possible to establish documentation of any harm you may have suffered..
Wrongful death cases arise from a number of causes such as motor vehicle accidents, boating accidents, dangerous or defective products, improper or incorrect prescription fulfillment, nursing home negligence or abuse, slip and fall accidents, substandard medical care, drowning, and even gas explosions. Such major events can leave loved ones with emotional distress, loss of companionship or financial hardship. Having experienced Denver personal injury lawyer on your side who understand your needs and losses, can reduce the stress, confusion, and burden of seeking proper compensation.
Bad faith insurance practices are defined as intentionally dishonest acts violating basic standards of honesty in dealing with others by not fulfilling legal or contractual obligations, misleading others, or entering into an agreement without the intention or means to fulfill its obligations. Some examples of bad faith practices by insurance companies include excessive and unnecessary delays in handling claims, inadequate investigation, placing the interests of the company above its customers, refusing to fairly evaluate an injury claim or pay benefits, violating the customer’s rights or unreasonably interpreting the provisions of a policy.
Dealing with insurance companies is tricky, stressful, and difficult. Even if you are not at fault, your insurance company may not take care of everything. No matter how good an insurance company seems to be, it is a for-profit business. Every decision it makes is intended to maximize profits and minimize liability, and the company will not want to pay out any more than absolutely necessary. If you have a valid claim against your insurance company, the law requires the company to properly investigate, examine, and resolve your claim in good faith. Some insurance companies may use tactics to get you to settle your claim too quickly or to get you to say things that can hurt and limit your claim.
