When someone else’s negligence inflicts injury, unfair loss, or suffering on another person, a personal injury claim may be the only way to obtain compensation for those losses. The Colorado Springs personal injury attorneys at the Green Law Firm, P.C. have years of experience handling these claims, and are dedicated to putting the needs of their clients first.
Personal Injury Law is a general category that includes a wide range of injuries and negligence claims. Car accidents, slips and falls, and dog bites comprise the majority of personal injury claims. While some torts, such as assault, are crimes also punishable by imprisonment, tort law has another very important purpose: to provide monetary relief to the victim for any losses incurred.
Personal Injury Claims in Colorado
Each state has its own laws that apply to personal injury claims, and Colorado is no exception. Specifically, Colorado imposes certain time limits for filing an injury-related case in court. An injured accident victim has just two years from the date of the injury, to file a personal injury lawsuit. Colorado also utilizes a modified comparative fault rule. This applies when an injured person is partially responsible for the accident that caused the injury. A plaintiff’s damages could be reduced if they are found at least partially responsible for the incident. For this reason alone, it is important to work with experienced Colorado Springs personal injury attorneys on your claim.
Recoverable Compensation and Damages
In a personal injury lawsuit, both present and future economic losses may be recovered, as well as certain types of non-economic losses. Medical expenses, loss of earnings capacity, pain and suffering, and emotional distress are among the most common types of losses. In some cases, punitive damages may also be recovered. This is an additional monetary award designed to punish the defendant for their behavior. These awards can be very high compared to a victim’s losses. If you have been injured because of another person or company’s negligence, you have a right to seek compensation for your injuries. Our experienced personal injury law firm can help you and your family after a devastating accident.
The Green Law Firm P.C.
Personal injury attorney, Greg Green‘s first job in law taught him how NOT to run a law firm. The firm he was working with at the time had too many clients, and not enough attorneys. And that led to a lack of attention to detail that was bad for the firm’s clients. When he started his own law firm he made a point to not make the same mistake, which is why at the Green Law Firm, you’ll speak to an attorney, not an investigator.
Greg believes that attorneys need to earn their money, and that means rolling up their sleeves and doing the difficult work required to achieve the best possible outcome for their clients. It’s this work ethic, coupled with his commitment to customer service and to always being available to his clients, that makes his law firm stand out.
