Assistance for All Sorts of Personal Injury Claims
Our team of Basalt personal injury attorneys from Klein Frank, P.C. is
led by a duo of attorneys who bring decades of combined legal experience
to every claim we accept. When it comes to personal injury claims, there
is basically no scenario we have not seen.
We are also familiar with cases that are more unique to Basalt and both
Eagle and Pitkin Counties. Roaring Fork Valley is accessible through Basalt,
bringing plenty of mountain bikers, skiers, snowboarders, hikers, watersport
enthusiasts, and other tourists into the area each year. With these popular
activities comes an increased risk of certain types of accidents, especially
when a third-party acts negligently. If you get hurt while participating
in a pastime popular in Basalt, you know you can count on us for familiar,
effective legal representation.
To name a few of the types of injury claims we can handle for our clients
Car accidents: Basalt may be a relatively small town, but negligent drivers are unfortunately
everywhere. If you get hit by a speeding, intoxicated, or distracted driver
in a crash that was not your fault, do not hesitate to reach out to us
to see how we can help you pursue maximized compensation.
Ski accidents: Did another skier collide into you while you were skiing? Were you hurt
going down a slope that was not marked as advanced? Let us know during
a no-cost consultation to see if you should be filing a ski accident claim.
Bicycle accidents: Bicyclists are dependent on pedestrians and motorists alike to give them
a fair share of roads, pathways, and sidewalks. If you were struck by
someone not paying attention to your bicycle’s path, call
(303) 622-3876 to start your claim.
Trucking accidents: Colorado State Highway 82 runs right through Basalt, sometimes making it
busy with commercial truck traffic. You deserve maximized compensation
if you were struck by a negligent truck driver who was passing through
Basalt on their route.
Premises liability: When you suffer an injury due to an unreasonable hazard on someone else’s
property, like a friend’s house or a retail store, you may be able
to file a premises liability claim against the property owner.
Wrongful death: Losing a loved one is emotionally devastating. It can also impact your
finances, too. We take a truly compassionate approach to wrongful death
claims that helps you seek justice and compensation on behalf of the loved
one you lost while also respecting your need to grieve.
What Damages Can You Receive in Your Claim?
A successful personal injury claim can give you a sense of justice and
fulfillment in knowing that a negligent party has been held accountable
for wrongdoing. Perhaps more importantly, though, a successful claim can
bring you financial stability by paying for the damages you have suffered
as a result of your injuries. To make certain our clients are able to
live as comfortably as can be after a claim, our Basalt personal injury
lawyers from Klein Frank, P.C. always do all we can to pursue every last
penny of compensation for them.
A personal injury claim may end with the following damages being awarded to you:
Medical treatment costs: Oftentimes, the largest financial damages in a personal injury claim are
associated with medical treatment costs. Severe injuries may require hundreds
of thousands of dollars of medical care to treat across several years.
It is only right that the party liable for your injuries pays those bills.
Missing wages: Losing income because you cannot go to work due to an injury will drain
your savings as you try to recuperate. You can include a demand for your
missing or reduced wages in your injury claim, even if you are granted
disability benefits from your employer.
Property damage expenses: Did your accident cause your personal property to be destroyed? We will
include its value in your demand for damages. Property damage expenses
are commonly listed in car accident claims, for example.
Pain and suffering: Your emotional trauma must also be accounted for when filing a personal
injury claim. You have been through so much at no fault of your own. It
might be possible to secure you significant noneconomic damages for your
needless pain and suffering caused by your accident and lasting injuries.
Disability hardship: Further noneconomic damages can also be awarded to you for your continued
disability and the hardship it causes you. If each day is now a struggle
when you used to be able-bodied, then the verdict or settlement amount
you receive should be increased to reflect as much.
You should also keep in mind that at Klein Frank, P.C., we use contingency
fee agreements for the personal injury claims we accept. With contingency
fees, you will not owe us any attorney fees unless we win you a settlement
or verdict amount. In some cases, the damages you receive are increased
by lawyer fees, too.
