Do I Have a Case?
Personal injury cases are unique and complex, but they all involve an injury that resulted from someone else’s careless or reckless behavior. If you were hurt in an accident because of someone else, it’s best to contact an attorney to help you seek compensation for your accident-related expenses.
Here are some of the common personal injury cases our law firm represents:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Workers’ compensation
- Product liability
- Slip and falls
- Wrongful death
Are You Within the Legal Timeframe to Seek Compensation?
In Colorado, in order to be eligible to seek compensation through a personal injury case, you are usually required to file your lawsuit within two years of the date of your accident. If you are seeking compensation for a car accident you were injured in, you usually have three years to file your lawsuit. These time frames are known as statutes of limitations and are enforced and varied from state to state.
It is important to note that there are exceptions to these time limitations depending on the circumstances of the case. Our Pueblo, CO, personal injury lawyers can help you evaluate your case and determine if you are still eligible to seek compensation based on the statute of limitations and your unique situation.
Was Someone Else at Fault?
Another important component of being able to seek compensation through a personal injury case is determining fault. In a personal injury claim, you must prove that another person was careless or reckless in the situation that caused your injury and that they failed in their responsibility to act with a reasonable level of care.
In a vehicle accident, for example, a driver has a responsibility to operate the vehicle with reasonable care at all times. If the driver ignores the rules of the road by speeding and causes an accident, it’s a breach of their responsibility to act with care. In other words, if someone else was responsible for your injury because they were acting carelessly, you likely have a right to seek compensation.
Our experienced lawyers at Heuser & Heuser can help you gather evidence to support your claim and build the strongest case possible for your possible compensation. If you believe someone else’s poor choices were responsible for your injury, don’t wait to call us for the help you need in seeking the settlement you deserve.

Personal Injury FAQs
How Much Is My Case Worth?
Every personal injury case is unique. Let our experienced Pueblo, CO, personal injury lawyers review your case in a free case review to help you understand what you could recover through a personal injury lawsuit. We can do this online or over the phone. You don’t even have to leave your couch!
What If I’m Partially at Fault?
Colorado has contributory negligence laws, which means if you were partially responsible for the accident that caused your injury, the amount of compensation you are able to seek may be affected. It’s best to let a personal injury lawyer investigate your case to help you determine how this will affect your possible settlement.
How Long Do Settlements Take?
Settlement negotiations are difficult to predict and the time they take can vary according to the circumstances of your case. We understand you need the possible settlement your case may produce right away. While we will always put your needs for a fair amount first, we will do everything we can to settle your case as quickly and efficiently as possible.
How Do I Pay My Medical Bills?
In an ongoing personal injury case, you’re responsible for your medical bills until you are able to obtain compensation. Health or auto insurance may offer protection that can help with expenses until you get your settlement.
How Do I Make Up Lost Wages?
Until your case is resolved, the at-fault party won’t pay for your lost wages. However, when you get the help of a Heuser & Heuser personal injury attorney, you will receive legal aid in seeking compensation for any paychecks you missed.
Should I Speak to the Insurance Company?
Though they may seem friendly and helpful, insurance companies are not on your side. Their job is to reduce or eliminate their financial responsibility, and any information you offer can be used against your case. Don’t lose out on any of the compensation you deserve. If the insurance company calls, it’s best to direct them to your attorney at Heuser & Heuser, LLP. Our experienced Pueblo, Colorado personal injury lawyers know how to handle the questions from the insurance company and will protect your rights.
Will I Have to Go to Court?
Most car accident injury cases are settled out of court. Insurance companies generally prefer to wrap up cases quickly and avoid the time and uncertainty of a court case. That said, if your case is complicated or the insurance company does not offer fair compensation for your injuries and expenses, you may need to pursue a lawsuit.
While there’s nothing legally stopping you from handling this yourself, court cases are complex and time-consuming, so it’s crucial to hire an attorney to represent you. At Heuser & Heuser, LLP, we have years of courtroom experience that will give us the best shot at seeking your maximum compensation. Let us handle everything on your behalf while you focus on recovery. We’re on top of it!
What if My Injury Occurred at a Friend or Family Member’s Property?
When personal injuries involve people you know and love, you may consider not filing a claim or lawsuit to avoid conflict. Before making that decision, it’s important to remember that personal injury claims and lawsuits are directed at the responsible party’s insurance company, not the friend or family member personally. You’re entitled to compensation for your injuries and expenses, and your loved ones are protected by the insurance policies they pay for to cover these situations.
If you are worried about impacting someone you love when seeking the compensation you deserve, there are legal options available for you. Contact us today for a free case review so we can help you understand what choices are available to you.
What if I Don’t Feel Hurt Immediately After an Accident?
If you don’t feel hurt at the time of an accident, that doesn’t mean you don’t have an injury. You may have physical responses to stress and trauma that reduce pain, such as an increase in adrenaline. You may feel fine at the time but later develop more significant injuries and pains. We recommend seeking medical attention as soon as possible after the accident, even if you do not believe you have significant injuries at first. If you discover your injury days or weeks later, your medical evaluation can still be used as evidence for your case. Though, your evaluation may hold more value in your case if you seek medical attention immediately after the accident. If you have any worries about how your medical record may impact your case, it’s best to consult an attorney from Heuser & Heuser, LLP to evaluate your case.
What if I Have a Pre-Existing Condition?
Your pre-existing condition doesn’t automatically exclude you from a personal injury claim. Depending on the injury and the nature of your pre-existing condition, your compensation may be reduced. In some cases, you can also hold the responsible party financially accountable for aggravating your condition. Your pre-existing condition case can be complex and require the guidance of an experienced attorney. Our attorneys at Heuser & Heuser, LLP have experience navigating cases for injured people just like you, so contact us today to get started.
What if My Accident Happened on the Job?
In most cases, on-the-job injuries are covered by workers’ compensation benefits provided by your employer. Workers’ compensation is intended to cover your medical bills and lost wages for injuries and illnesses caused by your work environment. We have an experienced team of workers’ comp lawyers who have recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation for injured workers like you. Contact us today to let our team at Heuser & Heuser, LLP help you seek the workers’ comp settlement you deserve.
