Causes of Personal Injury

At the Kanthaka Group, our personal injury lawyers represent people that have been injured, either physically or emotionally, in incidents such as:

What Should You Do After A Personal Injury Accident?

Try to remain calm. Call the police and file an official report. Following an accident, it is essential that you try to gather as much information as possible if you are physically able. In case of an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit, this information will be valuable. Obtain the contact information of each party involved, especially the person you believe is at fault. Photograph the scene, any injuries you have, and anything else you think could be important. If you or anyone else involved in the accident is injured, seek medical attention. Speak with a personal injury lawyer about the best course of action. 

What to Expect When You Meet With Our Personal Injury Lawyers

When you meet with our professional legal team, your first consultation is free. We’ll meet with you to mindfully discuss the circumstances leading up to your injury. We are sensitive to the fact that you have endured a serious injury, and we hope to make your legal experience as painless as possible. Based on our conversation with you in our initial consultation, we will determine the best legal course of action to pursue. From there, we will work with you each step of the way and keep you informed as we proceed.

Our personal injury lawyers take a pragmatic view when assessing your injury and determining a course to follow for a positive resolution. Our belief is that ethical, yet strong and aggressive advocacy yields the best results in all endeavors. By combining understanding, proper thoughts and actions, persuasive arguments based on solid research, with determined effort and mindfulness, Kanthaka’s professionals are able to resolve personal injury issues for our clients.

How Long Does a Personal Injury Claim Take? 

The length of time it takes to settle a personal injury case can vary from a few months to a few years. We strive to expedite the process and maximize your recovery. If your case cannot be settled out of court, our attorneys have the experience and skills to take it to trial.  

How Much Is Your Personal Injury Case Worth?

Throughout the years, our personal injury lawyers have handled and evaluated a wide variety of personal injury claims. The value of a personal injury claim is driven by the amount of damages involved. Among these are the type and extent of your medical treatment, your future medical needs, loss of income wage, pain and suffering, and the conduct of the wrongdoer.

The knowledge and expertise we have in this field allows us to understand the severity of the personal injury accident and how much money is likely to be recovered.

Why Should You Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer in Colorado Springs? 

At the Kanthaka Group, we take pride in our ability to provide exceptional service to our clients during their time of need. We understand that this is a difficult time for you and your loved ones, leading us to work hard to resolve your personal injury claim in an ethical yet effective manner.

Our personal injury lawyers will ensure that your legal and procedural rights are protected. We understand the complicated legalities surrounding personal injury cases in Colorado Springs, enabling our team to deliver you positive results. We will take the time to do our due diligence and look through insurance policies and personal assets that may influence your personal injury claim.

We advocate on your behalf and negotiate the best possible settlement for your personal injury claim, which may require an approach centered around alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation and settlement conferences. If your personal injury case requires a court hearing, our legal team is prepared to represent you. We understand that insurance companies may advocate for a court hearing because they know it is not what the client would like. Our personal injury lawyers start preparing your case for the unlikely event that you may go to trial. Not only are we prepared for trial, but we will work with you to ensure that you are fully prepared for all of the unexpected instances that you may encounter in the trial. Trial does not intimidate us and insurance companies will not be effective in using the trial as a means to deny you the compensation that you deserve.

Why You Shouldn’t Settle Too Quickly

It is important to consult with your lawyer before signing a final release form. In the case of a final release, you will not be able to seek compensation for additional treatment or other losses, even if you made a mistake by signing too early. 

Insurance Companies Will Not Advocate In Your Best Interest

If you get injured, these large insurance companies and organizations have their own team of lawyers to sift through all of the paperwork and medical records to decide what you receive. Don’t you think you need a personal injury lawyer on your side, making sure they are fair? Kanthaka Group wants you to be treated with the respect and dignity that you deserve.

It may appear as though the insurance company is being helpful with your personal injury claim; working with you, and offering to take care of everything. Our personal injury lawyers unfortunately understand that the insurance company is only looking out for their own best interest.

What Information Will Your Personal Injury Lawyer Need from You?

We understand that when you contact our personal injury lawyers, you are likely caught off guard by the injury incident and unsure how to proceed. We will work with you on your personal injury claim to ensure that you are comfortable and confident as we proceed. In order to be successful in your claim, we ask that you provide us with as much information as possible regarding the incident that led to your injury. No detail is too small, as we will work to understand the unique circumstance that caused you harm. We will discuss the answers to the following questions to determine the best legal course of action: 

  • What events led up to the incident?
  • How did the incident happen? 
  • Where did it happen? 
  • Who else was involved? 
  • Were there any witnesses? Do you have their information?
  • Did you speak with anyone at the scene of the incident? 
  • What was said during the conversation? 
  • Do you have any photographs of the accident scene?
  • Did you sustain any injuries? If so, where did you seek medical treatment?
  • Did your injury impair your ability to work?

If you have an Exchange of Information Form, an Incident Report, or any other documents relating to the incident, we would like to have copies, as they may help your personal injury claim. If you have signed any documents, we would like to have copies of those as well.
