When we’re going through our usual daily routine we rarely think about getting injured.  When headed to get coffee before work, you probably aren’t thinking you may get rear-ended at the light.  When you go to your job site, you’re most likely not assuming a piece of equipment is going to fall on you. 

The fact is though, these things do happen.  And when they do it may be your fault, but sometimes the fault lies elsewhere.  

So, how do you know if you have a justifiable personal injury claim?  Today, we’re going to tell you about the two most frequently pursued personal injury claims that we see.

Motor Vehicle Personal Injury Claims

These are by far the most common personal injury claims we see as accident attorneys in Thornton, Arvada, and Broomfield, Colorado.  No matter how safe and excellent of a driver you are, you are never guaranteed to arrive at your destination without incident.  

Driving accidents come in all shapes and sizes: you could only need minor car repairs, you may suffer from whiplash, you may need surgery, and yes, it can get even worse.  It’s important to note that you may not feel your injury directly after an accident, so if the crash jarred you at all, you should see a doctor.  The sooner you know what’s happened, the better.  

Talking to a personal injury attorney about your accident is a good idea.  Having someone to support you, look out for you, and who knows how to manage the situation will help you get through an incident that was beyond your control and may have contributed to financial, emotional, and physical pain.

Wrongful Death Claims

When a person dies unexpectedly due to the misconduct or negligence of another person or company, the emotional toll weighs heavily.  It’s important to fight for the victim and the victim’s loved ones and this is usually done through the filing of a wrongful death claim.  

In many cases, there will be a trial and if a person or entity is found guilty of the wrongful death, there will be significant repercussions, including a financial payment to those who lost their loved one.  

When someone you care for has died through the fault of another, talk to a personal injury attorney so you can gain a full understanding of your rights.

The Takeaway

The truth is, there’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to filing a personal injury claim.  If you have questions or would like to know more about your rights, we’re happy to help.
