Helping Victims of Serious Injuries Get Appropriate Compensation

When you are injured and file a claim with your insurance, or with the insurance of the party that is at fault, how do you know the resolution they offer is fair and right? Insurance and personal injury law is complex and takes into account federal and state laws that are hard enough before an accident to understand, much less following a debilitating injury. That’s why Leventhal Lewis takes an inclusive and transparent approach to casework.

Why Choose Leventhal Lewis for My Personal Injury Claim

Insurance companies have plentiful financial and legal resources to fight against your claim. How well your case turns out depends largely on the attorney handling it. With Leventhal Lewis, you can even the playing field. Our personal injury lawyers use a combination of experience, resources, and thorough knowledge of Colorado’s personal injury laws to get you the best possible settlement or verdict. We also have capable investigative staff that will help collect pertinent information or carry out negotiations to pursue your claim.

At Leventhal Lewis, our goal is to protect your best interests through every stage of the claims process. As a reflection of this, most cases are taken on a contingency basis. This means that we review your case free of charge and obligation. You are also not billed until your case is settled or won. At that time, our fee is based on a percentage of the total amount won, not on billable hours. There are no surprise fees, and no circumstance where a majority of funds will be claimed by your attorney, a crisis scenario for many clients which has been known to happen at some firms.

We maintain transparency throughout the process to help you see and understand all options available to you so that you can make the decisions that are best for you, both now and in the future. Often the proposal from the insurance company provides significantly less than an injury demands. If you have been severely injured in an accident, it is best to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. An ideal time is right after you leave the emergency room or are released by the accident investigation team. Don’t be the person that wishes they could turn back time after settling for a fixed amount or a stipend and then realizing it doesn’t actually cover the costs of recovery or long-term care.

With a personal injury lawyer, you can also avoid the headache that comes with denial of a claim, refusal to negotiate, delays in payment of a claim, and other tricks that insurance companies use to avoid or minimize settlements. We at Leventhal Lewis are here to help victims of serious injury in Denver and throughout Colorado get the best outcome possible from their cases. Contact us today to schedule your complimentary non-obligatory consultation with an experienced professional.

When Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

While some accidents result in minor injuries that are easily handled, accidents causing severe injuries such as burns, amputation, brain injury, or spinal cord injury may be too big for you to handle as insurance companies try to avoid paying such significant damage awards. Severe injuries often leave victims with extended medical treatment, substantial medical bills, and severe pain and suffering. In many cases, victims are left with reduced or no income to help pay the bills.

Working with an attorney is key in seeking the compensation you deserve should you suffer serious injuries in an accident. Why get shortchanged by insurers when Leventhal Lewis can fight for you and get you the compensation you deserve? Our personal injury lawyers will develop a unique strategy to pursue a fair settlement based on the circumstances of your case.

What Damages Does Personal Injury Compensation Cover?

Leventhal Lewis is committed to helping victims of catastrophic injury seek compensation for damages, including:

  • Medical costs
  • Physical therapy and rehab expenses
  • Damage to property
  • Loss of property
  • Lost income and earning potential
  • Home modification and adaptive technology
  • Attendant care
  • Physical pain and emotional suffering

Depending on your specific case, we will evaluate your claim and help you determine the suitable compensation appropriate for you.

Are There Time Limits for Personal Injury Cases?

There are different time limits within which you must take legal action in a personal injury claim. The time limit usually varies between one and three years. State of Colorado has a time limit of two years for most lawsuits based on negligence of another, including non-auto accident-related injuries sustained from medical negligence, product defects, skiing and snowboarding accidents, unmaintained premises, and dog bites. This means that court proceedings have to be commenced within two years of diagnosis or discovery. For motor vehicle accidents, you have a longer time (usually three years), but for claims against a government agency, you may need to take certain preliminary steps within six months to preserve your right to sue.

Regardless of the basis of your claim, it is vital that you act quickly to secure legal counsel to avoid the issues and potential harmful factors that can stem from a delay. The sooner you get started with a personal injury claim, the stronger your case will usually be.
