Denver Shoulder Injury Lawyer
Shoulder injuries change lives in ways that people who have not experienced them may have a hard time understanding. We rely on our shoulders for almost everything we do. An injury to the shoulder might sound less severe than one to the brain, but the impact on your life can still be huge. So can the associated medical bills and lost earnings. If your shoulder injury was caused by someone other than you, you might have a claim to collect compensation for the costs and damages linked to the injury.
Getting compensation that is right and fair requires the collection of evidence, drafting, and filing of a claim to demand your damages, then the successful negotiation and collection. Sometimes it also requires a lawsuit. Generally, you’ll be negotiating with the at-fault party’s insurance company, and their motivation is too often tied to protecting their own bottom line. A local Denver shoulder injury lawyer from Ready Law can lead you through the process and help you get the best possible compensation in your case.
Common Causes and Implications of a Shoulder Injury
As detailed by information published by the National Library of Medicine, shoulder injuries are often caused by:
- Sprains and strains
- Partial thickness tears
- Full thickness tears
- Changes in spacing within the shoulder joint
- Inflammation of the soft tissue within or around the shoulder joint
- Broken bones
There are many reasons a shoulder injury can develop, but people come to us for help when their shoulder injury can be traced back to a trauma. Sometimes the defense in these cases will attempt to blame another cause and will often claim the condition was degenerative. Basically, they argue it was going to happen anyway, or there was some other trauma that caused it. It benefits them to point fingers in all directions other than something they caused or did. When they are wrong about that, we make it our goal to help you show that they are wrong about that.
We have helped clients impacted by shoulder injuries caused by:
- Motor vehicle collisions
- Other accidents and incidents caused by other persons or business entities
A shoulder injury can impact your ability to work and enjoy life the way you did before the injury, and you may have a right to claim damages.
Can I Afford a Shoulder Injury Lawyer?
One of the initial questions many of our prospective new clients have, and rightfully so, is how much it costs to hire an attorney from Ready Law to help.
Your initial consultation is free. During your initial consultation, we will collect some basic information about your injury and the circumstances surrounding it to determine if your case is a fit with our firm. It is helpful if you bring as much information as possible to your initial consultation about the accident, your medical costs, and any lost earnings related to your injuries.
When we are able to take your case, generally, it will be on contingency, which means that we only get paid if we recover money for you, and we are paid a percentage of whatever we recover. What this all means is that you owe us nothing for fees unless we achieve a positive result on your case. Case costs are separate from attorney fees, as every attorney in Colorado is required to explain to you when discussing payment and fees. Usually, we advance those case costs on your behalf and then take them out of whatever we recover for you at the end of the case. During your free consultation, all of this and more will be explained in as much detail as you want to go into. For now, you should understand that if we accept your case and you choose to retain us to help with your fight, you will not need to pay anything upfront. It costs you nothing to get started.
