What Damages Can Be Recovered?
Depending on the type of accident you experienced, its severity, and the factors involved, you may have a range of damages that can be covered in a personal injury lawsuit. With a history of success handling civil cases throughout all of Colorado, Bowman Law attorneys have an in-depth understanding of damages in personal injury cases and understand the struggles victims may face in trying to recover.
Compensatory Damages Vs. Punitive Damages
There are two classes of damages which an injured party can potentially recover in a personal injury lawsuit – compensatory damages and punitive damages. According to Colorado statute, punitive, also referred to as exemplary, damages may be awarded in cases where the defendant’s conduct is attended by circumstances of fraud, malice, or willful and wanton conduct, in addition to the actual damages sustained. Essentially, punitive damages attempt to punish the wrongdoer for their conduct.
Alternatively, compensatory damages attempt to compensate the injured party for what was lost due to the accident. In these cases, money damages are paid to an injured party, typically by the insurance company of the negligent party, through negotiations between the parties or through a verdict in court.
Personal Injury Law Frequently Asked Questions
In an effort to assist injury victims in their search for information, we’ve prepared answers to some of the most common questions related to general injury claims. However, because each case presents a different set of facts and issues, it’s best to discuss your claim in a free consultation with our Colorado personal injury lawyers.
Personal injury law is part of the Law of Torts, where torts refer to wrongful acts which are recognized by the law as the basis for a lawsuit to be pursued. Resulting in injury or harm, these torts constitute as the basis for an individual to pursue a personal injury claim for either physical, mental or property damages.
At Bowman Law, we offer free consultations on all cases. After your consultation, we offer our services on a contingency fee basis. This ensures that you’ll only pay your attorney their legal fees if they collect compensation for you in the resolution of your case.
All cases are different and may take less or more time depending on the type of case, the severity of the damages, and the negligence of the parties involved. Our injury lawyers do not start negotiating with an insurance company until you’ve sufficiently recovered. Additionally, we won’t discuss the resolution of a claim until you reach a point where no further improvement in your physical ability is possible. It is important not to rush your case until you know the true extent of your injuries. After you are discharged from medical care, there are a variety of processes that may be explored to fully address your case that involve additional timelines from insurance companies and other involved parties.
In the state of Colorado, the time you’re allotted to file most personal injury claims varies based on the type of accident. For example, for an automobile accident personal injury claim, victims have two years from the accident to file a claim. For a wrongful death claim, the party seeking justice has two years from the date of the victim’s death to file a claim. For claims against the City of Boulder, victims have 182 days from the date of the incident in which they claim to have been injured or damaged.
During a personal injury lawsuit, the person who is being held responsible for the accident’s insurance company pays monetary compensation to the victim of the accident for a variety of damages. Through a personal injury lawyer providing legal representation at a civil court proceeding, a personal injury case can be formalized to find others legally at fault for the damages experienced. Disputes may be resolved through a court judgment or through informal settlement negotiations before a lawsuit is filed. Personal injury lawsuits can take a few months or a few years, depending on the type of accident and damages involved.
