Colorado Springs Personal Injury Lawyers
Seek Compensation With Gaddis, Herd, Craw & Adams, P.C.
If you have been hurt in an unexpected accident, you likely have urgent concerns about your health, your finances, and your future. When these dangerous accidents are caused by the negligence of someone else, victims have the grounds to seek compensation for these concerns. Often, these victims must grapple with insurance providers to recover the relief they deserve—other times, they have to file suit against the negligent party themselves.
Whatever the case may be, it is recommended that you seek trusted, proven legal counsel as you approach this process. At Gaddis, Herd, Craw & Adams, P.C., our personal injury lawyers have been helping injury victims seek justice for more than 40 years. We know what it takes to secure results for our clients and how to compellingly put forth their eligibility for relief both in and outside the courtroom.
When Should I Hire an Lawyer?
If you've suffered an injury or lost a loved one due to negligence, you should contact a lawyer right away! A personal injury lawyer in Colorado Springs can assist you with the following:
- Filing your initial claim with the court
- Uncovering evidence to support your claim such as witness testimony and medical reports
- Ensuring you receive quality medical treatment, from a specialist of need-be.
At Gaddis, Herd, Craw & Adams, P.C., our legal team has over 150 years of experience and is prepared to fight for your maximum compensation.
What Is the Deadline for Filing a Claim?
The last thing you want to hear from your personal injury lawyer is that you missed the deadline for filing a claim. Not only will you have to live with your injuries, but you won't even be able to pursue compensation.
In Colorado, the deadline for filing a lawsuit for personal injury is two years from the date the accident took place. In the case of a motor vehicle accident, you have three years.
How Much Is My Case Worth?
No firm can promise you an exact amount of compensation once you decide to take legal action after your accident. However, at Gaddis, Herd, Craw & Adams, P.C., we can promise that we will seek maximum compensation for our clients. This means we will work with loved ones and medical professionals as necessary to ensure that the victim's immediate and long-term needs are represented by their injury claim.
The amount of damages you will be able to pursue also depends on the specifics of your case as every personal injury case is different, but the types of damages available to injury victims remain the same in every case.
These types of damages are:
- Economic: is to compensate the injured persons for the financial losses they suffer as a result of an injury. This can include medical expenses and lost wages or income due to an inability to work.
- Non-Economic: compensate for the more intangible losses such as pain and suffering, emotional distress and being unable to continue the enjoyable activities of your life.
- Punitive: are given in certain circumstances to punish or deter reckless conduct by having the negligent party pay additional damages above and beyond compensatory damages. Punitive damages are not awarded by juries and courts as often as compensatory damages
Both economic and non-economic damages are “compensatory damages” which means the purpose of them is to make up for or compensate the injured party for a loss.

Injury victims in Colorado are eligible to seek the following damages:
- Medical costs
- Property damage
