An auto accident or workplace injury is about the last thing anyone ever expects to happen to them. After the shock and pain subside, a flood of questions come rushing in:

A personal injury due to someone else’s negligence can be painful and disruptive to your life. Sometimes, these events can even be life-changing. Add in the stress of a personal injury lawsuit, and your situation may feel overwhelming.

HOW A PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM WORKS IN COLORADO

There are a few basic rules that apply to any type of Colorado personal injury claim. Some are the law, while others are a means to strengthen your claim. Either way, it’s in your best interest to follow these guidelines as closely as you can.

For starters, you should always report an accident. Even if the damage is minor and you believe the other person is at fault. Without filing a report, you run the risk of forfeiting your right to a claim later.

Besides, who’s to say the other person won’t file a report and say that YOU were the one at fault. Better safe than sorry.

Contact your insurance company – failing to do so in a timely manner may harm or negate your case in the future.

Speak with an attorney – the sooner you get a personal injury attorney involved the better. Especially while evidence/injuries are fresh and witnesses are easy to find. Your attorney will advise you on what to do and say (and not) to protect rights and fortify your case.

Seek medical attention – serious injuries don’t always appear right away. It often takes time for swelling and soreness to set in and the true impact to be known. Not documenting these problems right away could mean problems down the road.

Once you have your bases covered, it’s time to work with an attorney to see what’s next.  When you’re injured due to someone else’s negligence, you have several options. Your Denver personal injury lawyer will help you decide which one is right for you.

  • Insurance claims: In most cases, personal injury victims seek compensation from the at-fault party’s insurance company. All policies have limits. But oftentimes you can reach a fair settlement with the insurance company and avoid the high costs of going to trial.
  • Out-of-court settlements: Negotiating a settlement with liable parties takes more time than filing a typical insurance claim. However, when policy limits prevent accident victims from being fully paid, your Denver personal injury attorney may recommend settling out of court.
  • Courtroom trials: This is what separates Marathon Law from the rest of the pack. As a former trial deputy for the Colorado State Public Defender, attorney Jeffry Dougan knows his way around a courtroom.

YOUR TIME IS RUNNING OUT

It bears mentioning that Colorado personal injury claims have statutes of limitations. That means if you fail to file a timely claim you may forfeit your rights.

Most types of negligence claims (slips, falls, and other accidents) can be filed up to two years after the incident. While auto accidents involving injuries or property damage have up to three years to be initiated.

The complexities and costs of a Colorado personal injury trial make lawsuits the option of last resort for many victims. But sometimes, when the other side won’t listen to reason, you’re left with little choice but to go to trial.

Other times, going to trial is just the right decision.

No matter which path you choose, Jeff and Malissa will be there to assist you every step of the way. As a personal injury victim – or someone who has been hurt at work – you deserve full compensation for the pain and suffering you have endured.

IF YOU DON’T WIN, YOU DON’T PAY

Call us today at 303-704-1222 to schedule your FREE confidential consultation. Jeffry and Malissa will quickly evaluate your case and determine your best options. Rest assured, we’ll do everything we can to assist you.

And if we can’t, we won’t take on your case. Period.

We also work on a contingency basis. That means you don’t pay unless we settle or win your case. You have nothing to lose (and everything to gain). So why wait?

Call us today at 303-704-1222 and get the conversation started. The sooner you call, the sooner we can help.

TYPES OF CASES WE HANDLE

As Denver personal injury attorneys, we can expertly assist you with a variety of cases:

Auto accidents

Whether you have been injured in a car accident and seek compensation from the responsible party. Or if your own insurance company refuses to pay its fair share. Marathon Law can help.

Workers’ Compensation

When someone is hurt on the job, they are entitled to compensation. Under Colorado’s Workers’ Compensation Law, employees can claim injuries, lost wages, and medical care expenses related to the incident.

In theory, this law is supposed to guarantee that Colorado workers are treated fairly. But once insurance carriers and company doctors get involved, all bets are off.

Your Denver personal injury attorney will ensure that, as an employee, your rights are protected and you get 100% of the compensation that you deserve. After all, that’s why workers’ compensation laws exist in the first place.

Do not let the insurance companies or doctors take advantage of your good will. And don’t be threatened about losing your job. We’ll make sure that your workers’ compensation rights are protected and you are treated fairly.

Wrongful Death Suits

When someone dies from the negligence of another, there is really nothing that can make things right. But in an effort to compensate victims’ families for their loss, Colorado enacted a law for these situations.

It’s a law that allows a person’s family to file a wrongful death suit and recover financial losses from the unexpected death of a loved one. This helps ensure that those who are left behind are not put into dire financial straits after the event.

Your Denver personal injury attorney can walk you through the ins and outs of a wrongful death claim. It’s your choice. Make sure that you do not suffer any more than you already have.

Motorcycle accidents

As the son of a retired biker, Jeffry Dougan has seen what cars can do to a biker. Bikers’ injuries are usually more severe than car accidents. And they often permanently impair a person’s ability to work or live life to the fullest.

Let’s be honest. We all have a story about that one time we almost hit a biker.

It’s not because we are bad people. It’s just because we don’t see them. And that common experience tends to make these cases more difficult. Your Denver personal injury attorney works tirelessly to ensure that every biker client of his gets the compensation they deserve.

Semi-truck accidents

When somebody is hurt in a trucking accident, the outcome usually is not good. Significant injuries, property destruction, and even fatalities are common scenarios.

However, you’re usually talking about a commercial insurance policy (which means deep pockets). This is a good and a bad thing.

It’s good because your recovery is not usually bound to the mandatory limits of most Colorado insurance policies. It’s bad because these companies can afford to hire an army of lawyers to defend themselves.

In the end, what’s right is right. Your Denver personal injury attorney will not be intimidated and will fight until the end to protect his clients.

Revenge Porn 

There’s nothing more humiliating and invasive than being a victim of revenge porn. Luckily, Colorado law has equipped personal injury lawyers with the tools they need to help clients restore their dignity.

If you’ve been a victim of revenge porn, contact us today.

We will work with you to solve the problem. Not only to remove your private images from the internet, but to obtain a lump sum cash settlement for no less than $10,000.00. And the best part is that you won’t owe us a dime unless we win your case.

Nursing Home Neglect

Your Denver personal injury attorney knows firsthand what it’s like to place a loved one in a nursing home.

There is a considerable amount of trust, reluctance, and sometimes even regret that goes into making that decision. When you place a loved one in a nursing home, you expect them to be treated well. Given the highest standard of care and personal attention that they deserve.

When this doesn’t happen, and your loved one is neglected or abused, you feel betrayed. You feel angry. And you feel like it’s your fault.

Well, it’s not your fault and we’re here to help.

We will fight against the institutions and insurance companies that harmed your loved one. And in doing so, ensure that they are held to the highest standards of accountability and justice.

Employment Law

Companies take advantage of their employees all the time. But you should know that you have rights when it comes to the workplace:  a safe, secure work environment and wage protection to name just a few.

Our Denver employment law services include benefit claims, workplace discrimination, retaliation, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, employment contract disputes and a host of other issues. If you feel that you have been wronged in any of these areas, we can help.

WHY CHOOSE US

Can you choose to go it alone? Sure. But you’re taking your chances with the results. What should you do first? Who can you trust? How do you know that you’re getting all that you’re entitled to? These are important questions that will decide the outcome of your case.

You have many options when it comes to choosing a Denver personal injury attorney to work with. That’s why selecting the right one is so important. Here a few things to look for when making your decision.

Trial Experience

One of the most important questions to ask when hiring a Denver personal injury attorney. Anybody can haggle with the insurance companies, accept a lowball offer, and move on to the next case. But how many attorneys will don their gloves and jump in the ring when it’s time to fight?

Jeffry Dougan is a former deputy trial attorney for the Colorado State Public Defender. That means he has taken cases to trial more times than he can count. And in the process successfully settled hundreds of cases for his clients.

Can your attorney say the same?
