Sustaining an injury can lead to major physical and financial setbacks, and it is imperative for victims to recover compensation for their losses. If you or somebody you love has sustained an injury caused by the negligence of another, the team at the Bendinelli Law Firm is here to help. Our Denver personal injury lawyers will offer a free consultation of your case and help work towards recovering the compensation you are entitled to.
Personal injury claims in Denver can be challenging. In fact, without any legal training, recovering compensation becomes much more difficult. When a skilled personal injury lawyer gets involved with your case, you will have an advocate with the resources necessary to handle every aspect of the claim on your behalf.
Your lawyer will begin by fully investigating the incident, which means uncovering any evidence needed for liability. This will include any evidence gathered at the scene of the incident as well as additional evidence, such as video surveillance footage, records related to the at-fault party’s history, statements from eyewitnesses, and more.
Your lawyer will also ensure that you are evaluated by trusted economic and medical professionals. These individuals can help adequately calculate total expected losses so your lawyer can negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance carriers and at-fault parties. Importantly, your lawyer will be the one to handle all communications with other parties, including any negotiations that go on.
Lastly, your attorney will represent you in the courtroom in the event you end up in front of a jury. This is important. Courtroom experience goes a long way in helping ensure that you have a successful outcome for your claim. Our trial lawyers are standing by to help.

We also make it a point to help clients who have sustained emotional and psychological trauma as a result of the traumatic injuries and the incident. These types of unseen injuries can affect victims just as much as the visible traumatic injuries mentioned above. We want to make sure clients recover full compensation for all visible and unseen injuries they sustain.
Individuals who sustain injuries caused by the negligence of others should take various steps immediately following the incident and in the days and weeks that follow in order to help not only ensure their well-being, but ensure that they have the best chance of recovering compensation for their losses.
Personal injury victims in Denver will likely be able to recover a wide range of compensation types if their claim is successful. Our lawyers strive to recover economic and non-economic damages on behalf of every client that we help.
Economic damages revolve around calculable losses personal injury victims in Denver are likely to incur as a result of the incident and the aftermath. Some of the most common economic damages, often referred to as special damages, include the following:
Non-economic damages are not as calculable as the expenses mentioned above. Often referred to as general damages, these types of expenses do not have bills or receipts that can be easily added up, but they are just as important as economic damages. Some of the most common non-economic damages that Denver personal injury victims are likely to incur include:
There is no set amount of compensation paid to personal injury victims in Denver. However, there are various factors that will need to be examined in order to adequately calculate the correct amount. Our team works with trusted medical, financial, and economic experts to help determine how much compensation you should receive after an injury. Some of the factors that will be examined include:
Personal injury victims in Denver must be aware of the timelines involved with their claims. Under the Colorado personal injury statute of limitations, injury victims have two years from the date the injury occurs to file a lawsuit in civil court against the alleged negligent party. The statute of limitations applies to most types of personal injury cases, but not car accident claims. Car accident victims in Colorado have an extended timeline of three years to file their claims in civil court.
It is important to note that any claim brought against a government entity in this state must be filed within 180 days after the incident.
In the event a personal injury victim fails to file their lawsuit against an alleged negligent party within their respective time frames, they will most likely lose the ability to recover any compensation for their losses.
In addition to these statutory deadlines, personal injury victims need to be aware of any deadlines put in place by the insurance carriers involved in their claims. Typically, insurance carriers require that an injury be reported within a few days after the incident occurs, or they could delay or deny the claim altogether.
Paying for a personal injury attorney in Denver is not as challenging as many people think. At the Bendinelli Law Firm, we proudly handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that clients will not have to worry about paying any legal fees to our personal injury attorneys until after we successfully recover the compensation they are entitled to. There will be no upfront or out-of-pocket costs while the case is ongoing.
If we do not win the case, our clients do not pay any legal fees at all.
It can be challenging to understand whether or not you will have to actually go to court to recover compensation for your losses. Most personal injury claims in Denver are resolved through a settlement with an insurance carrier. If a case is resolved solely through an insurance claim, this means that a plaintiff will not have to go to court.
However, if the insurance carrier does not offer a fair settlement or if they refuse the claim altogether, the plaintiff will need to file a civil personal injury lawsuit against the alleged negligent party. This does put the case into the civil court system but does not mean that the plaintiff will have to go to court. This will start the discovery process, and it is not uncommon for a case to settle before actually going to a jury trial. It can take years before a case actually reaches a jury. Only if the two parties cannot reach an agreement will the case need to go to a jury trial.
