Littleton Personal Injury Attorney Working to Get Your Claim Settled
Holding negligent parties accountable
Personal injury claims are brought by victims who suffer physical, economic or psychological injury directly due to another person’s negligence. At Christopher C. Felton, P.C., I employ a practical, professional approach to help ensure that my clients in Littleton and throughout Arapahoe, Douglass and Jefferson counties obtain full and fair recovery for their injuries, including damages for their past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress, and pain and suffering. I have more than 25 years of civil litigation experience. My knowledge about insurance company tactics and my skills at settlement negotiation work to obtain the best possible recovery for my clients.
Timely action is vital
Colorado’s statute of limitations gives you two years after most general negligence and three years in auto claims to file suit after the discovery of harm. Consult an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible so your claim is filed within crucial statutory deadlines. By investigating your claim immediately, I help ensure that valuable evidence remains available and witnesses’ memories remain fresh.
Expert consultants assisting with case preparation
I consult with a network of knowledgeable and respected experts who help review and analyze your case. Their detailed, objective evaluations demonstrate how the negligence of another caused your injuries. With the assistance of physicians, chiropractors and forensics engineers, I can negotiate the best possible settlements. At trial, these experts are available to deliver clear and compelling testimony that helps jurors understand the cause and extent of your injuries.
There are three things you should know when pursuing an injury claim in Colorado:
- Do not talk to the insurance company until you have consulted an attorney. I understand that after an accident you will likely deal with serious financial concerns such as medical bills and lost wages. Don’t accept a check or sign a release from your insurance company — many insurance adjusters try to get you to sign a release before the extent of your injuries is known.
- Keep a record of medical treatments, therapy appointments, the doctors you consult and medications you are taking, and document your inability to work and to enjoy any of the activities you did before you were in the accident. A lawsuit can take years, and you won’t remember everything later. The effectiveness of your record-keeping can make a big difference in how much damages you can receive for medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering.
- Do not hide any past accidents or injuries from your attorney. Insurance companies share accident information in a central database, so the insurance company will find out about your accident history. Keep your attorney informed.
