Time Frame for Personal Injury Cases
It’s important for clients to understand that there is a strict time limit for filing personal injury claims. In Colorado, people have two years to file from the date of their accident. After filing, the case may be resolved in a few weeks but it may also take a couple years. The particulars of the case matter. If negotiations fail, the case may take longer.

We can address all of your questions and concerns while helping you understand the merits of your case and what you may be entitled to either through negotiation or litigation.
Negotiating a Fair Settlement
In cases where the defendant’s fault is clear, negotiations are often fruitful. In fact, most personal injury cases are resolved through the legal negotiation process. We can negotiate with insurers and the at-fault party’s attorneys to attempt to arrive at an agreement. We have achieved many lucrative settlement packages for our Longmont, CO, clients. Often, insurers want to avoid long and costly litigation of the case and so they will try to settle the case. Naturally, we know what our clients are entitled to, as they do as well, so it’s frequently possible to arrive at a settlement that’s agreeable to our clients. Sometimes, however, negotiations fail. Then, we take the matter to court.
The Litigation Process
Malik Law attorneys will aggressively represent your claim during the litigation process. Saira P. Malik has a decade’s worth of experience litigating these types of cases. If the at-fault party will not agree to a fair settlement, we will not shrink from holding them accountable nonetheless. That’s why there are courts—and we thrive in the court room setting. We will do our utmost to effectively represent your claim. You deserve compensation for what you’ve endured and we’ll fight for you every step of the way.
Compensation for Colorado Victims
In Colorado, victims of a personal injury can make a claim for damages. There are two categories of damages that may be claimed: economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages refer to lost wages and medical expenses. These can also include future medical bills and missed wages as many claimant’s require on-going or long-time medical care for the injuries they’ve suffered.
Non-economic damages refer to pain and suffering—both physical and mental pain and suffering. There is a cap on these damages, but in rare cases, the cap be raised if the evidence is overwhelming.
So, how do claimants arrive at their compensation demands? The current economic damages are easy to pinpoint because our clients tend to have a fistful of medical bills and proof of missed work. It can be more complicated to calculate future costs related to the injury. In these cases, we may consult with an expert like an actuary or accountant. Then, we factor in the non-economic damages to arrive at a monetary amount.
The Importance of Medical Treatment
If you get hurt in an accident, it’s vital that you get medical attention as soon as possible. Medical care can safeguard your health and well-being, but it also establishes proof of your injuries. If you decide to pursue a claim, you will need to prove that you sustained medically validated injuries. If you’ve been treated by a licensed physician or hospital, you will have the documented proof you need to provide in support of your claim.
Malik Law attorneys have represented clients who have sustained a wide array of injury types. Some injuries that Colorado victims of accidents have suffered include:
- Brain Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Organ Damage
- Internal Bleeding
- Fractures and Broken Bones
- Road Rash
- Cuts and Lacerations
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Often, these injuries are life changing. Many personal injury victims suffer injuries that they will never fully recover from. Sometimes, victims are left disabled and can no longer work or live the lives they once led. When this happens because of another’s fault, victims are entitled to seek compensation.
Police Report / Incident Report
After seeking medical care, the accident or incident report is important to procure. If you’re involved in an accident and are able to, be sure to contact the police. They will document the incident in a professional accident report. This, too, becomes evidence if you choose to pursue your claim for fair compensation. If you get injured at a store or on commercial property, you can request a copy of the incident report.
Don’t Talk to the Insurers
It’s common practice for insurers to get in touch with victims of personal injuries. Their motives are complex. While insurance representatives may sound caring and reasonable on the phone, the business they represent ultimately wants to pay as little as possible to victims. Instead of talking and possibly saying something that could hurt your claim, let us communicate with insurers. It’s important that they are aware they you have expert legal representation should you need to rely on it. They may not be as quick to offer a ridiculously low settlement offer or attempt to minimize the injuries and suffering that victims endure.
