Types of Personal Injury Cases
More than half of all personal injury lawsuits are the result of an automobile accident. Following automobile accidents come injuries resulting from medical malpractice, injuries resulting from product liability, and injuries resulting from a broad category known as “other.”
Included in “other” are construction accidents, slip and falls, dog bites and injuries due to an assault. Most of those who file a personal injury lawsuit have suffered moderate to severe injury. These injuries may have even altered the life of the injured person as well as those around them. There are many personal injuries or damages, which can justify compensation from the negligent party, however such cases can be complex, requiring the assistance of an experienced Colorado personal injury attorney.

What to Expect in a Personal Injury Lawsuit
One extremely important thing to remember is that you should always refrain from discussing the details of your accident with anyone other than your very closest family member or spouse and your attorney. Even the most innocent comment can be misinterpreted, and posting facts about your accident to social media should always be avoided.
Most statistics agree that nearly 95 percent of all pending personal injury cases will resolve through a pre-trial settlement. This leaves a small percentage of personal injury cases which actually end up in a courtroom. Some of the reasons pre-trial settlements occur so often include the fact that while a settlement is private, a lawsuit and its results are not, a settlement is a guaranteed win, you have more control over a settlement (and are likely to incur fewer legal costs) and settlements avoid lengthy trials, with potential appeals.
It is also important to remember that any personal injury lawsuit could take as long as a year to make it to trial. The trial will consist of jury selection, opening statements, witness testimony, cross-examination, closing arguments, jury instructions, jury deliberation, and a final verdict.
