If you are involved in a personal injury lawsuit, or are considering filing one, you need to engage in at least some self-education, even if you are appropriately represented by a Colorado personal injury lawyer. If nothing else, you need to be able to converse intelligently with your lawyer. Indeed, you need at least some basic information about a personal injury lawsuit, including what is involved in a settling a matter, in order to ask appropriate questions of your personal injury attorney.
At the heart of what is needed to settle a personal injury lawsuit is a consideration and examination of the theory of the case itself. This involves a consideration of the facts and applicable law which combine to answer the question as to why you are right in pressing a particular claim.
In order to settle a Colorado personal injury lawsuit, you need to know all of your damages. You need to have a reasonably accurate estimate of such damages as current and future medical bills, current and future lost wages, pain and suffering and any other losses sustained as the result of the negligence of someone else.
As part of the settlement process, you need to make sure that you have collected all relevant records – and redacted (removed or concealed) information that simply is not relevant to the case according to Colorado law. (The need for properly limiting the conveyance of irrelevant but potentially harmful information to the “other side” underscores the need for a capable, experienced Colorado personal injury lawyer.)
