Skiing Accidents in Aspen and throughout Colorado
Aspen is a top destination for skiers and adventure seekers, and for good reason! But when your vacation or retreat is ruined by a skiing or snowboarding accident, it can feel like you have nowhere to turn for help. Skiing companies and ski lodges can be powerful adversaries in personal injury cases — after all, what is your first ski injury claim may be their hundredth (or more). Thiessen Law Firm can help you gather evidence and build a strong case so negligent companies can’t shirk their responsibilities to their customers.
Why should you contact an Aspen personal injury attorney?
When an accident does occur in Colorado, insurance policyholders retain the right to recover compensation for their losses as a result of the accident. Compensation for personal injury can help cover losses stemming from medical bills, lost wages, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and other damages. These expenses can and often do add up. Though financial compensation can’t fix every loss, it can give you and your family members much-needed peace of mind and security as you heal emotionally and physically.
Unfortunately, recovering a fair amount of compensation is easier said than done. Large insurance companies often try to minimize or debunk your claim to avoid giving you the maximum amount of compensation you deserve. Negotiations with insurance defense lawyers can often be lengthy and complicated –– especially if you’re recovering from a traumatic accident.
These insurance companies often believe they’re just doing their job. Well, we do ours better. Mark Thiessen, a trial-tested Aspen personal injury lawyer, is known for his aggressive pursuit of his clients’ best interests. He and the team at Thiessen Law Firm will assert your rights and work hard to get you the compensation you and your loved ones deserve.
When should you contact a personal injury lawyer in Aspen?
The statute of limitations in Colorado for typical personal injury cases is two years. This means that you have only two years after the injury occurred to file your personal injury lawsuit. While this may feel like a long time, two years can pass very quickly if you and your family are focusing on recovering from major injuries.
Hiring an Aspen personal injury lawyer will help you stay on top of important deadlines like the statute of limitations so that you can more easily focus your energy on rebuilding your life.
The best time to hire an Aspen personal injury lawyer is soon after your accident. Over time, evidence can be corrupted, eyewitnesses move on, records get lost, and memories fade. Meanwhile, insurance companies and responsible parties are building a case against your claim. The sooner you get an aggressive personal injury lawyer on your case, the better your chances of preserving important evidence and building a strong case.
How much does an Aspen personal injury lawyer cost?
Reputable personal injury lawyers like those at Thiessen Law Firm work on a contingency fee basis. This means that our payment is contingent (dependent) upon the successful settlement of your claim, whether that claim was taken to trial or not. We don’t get paid until you do
If you encounter a personal injury lawyer that offers to take your case but not on a contingency fee basis, run for the hills. And if you encounter a personal injury lawyer that expects to be patted on the back for working on a contingency fee basis, be wary — what they’re doing is standard, basic ethics, not rocket science.
Once a claim is settled, the costs will depend on the specifics of your case, including the duration of the claim and the experience of your lawyer. (Note that experienced lawyers are often better at shortening the length of your case.)
