What is a Personal Injury Case?
If you are injured due to someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to damages to cover your expenses as well as your pain and suffering.
When a person or business fails to exercise the degree of care necessary to protect others from injury, the legal term is "negligence." Proving a party was negligent is the foundation for most personal injury claims in Colorado.
Examples of negligence that could lead to a personal injury case, include:
A driver who causes a crash because they were texting and driving or otherwise not paying proper attention;
A driver who ignores the speed limit and causes an accident while speeding;
A business that fails to remedy a hazard, such as a wet floor or cracked sidewalk;
A doctor who fails to adhere to the proper standard of care during a medical procedure.
Any type of bodily injury suffered as a result of an accident can be filed as a personal injury claim, whether it is from an auto collision, a slip and fall, or a medical error.
