Choosing a Denver Premises Liability Attorney

Doctor to push the wheelchairThe vast majority of property owners conscientiously maintain their property, but occasionally a situation arises in which a person is injured by a hazard on someone’s property that the owner should have seen and had a legal obligation to correct. If you have been injured, and you feel that the owner of the property where you were injured was negligent in their maintenance, speak with a Denver premises liability attorney as soon as possible.

When it comes to choosing a premises liability attorney, you may be asking yourself some of these questions:

  • Are they all the same?
  • Can I shop around or do I have to pick a name out of the phone book?
  • Can I check their qualifications?
  • Can I even afford a lawyer?
  • Are all premises liability lawsuits frivolous like that reputation I’ve heard?

To start with, you need the right lawyer, but just like with cars or houses or any other product or service, not everyone’s needs are the same; there is no one “right lawyer,” you need the right lawyer for you. Here are some tips that may help you find the right lawyer for you.

  • Word-of-mouth advertising is often the best way to begin to shop. Ask your friends, relatives or coworkers if they have had a really positive experience with an attorney. Keep in mind, however, that the attorney who was best for your friend may not be best for you.
  • Most premises liability attorneys will give you a free consultation. Speak with more than one attorney to get a feel for their different personalities and styles. It is imperative that you feel comfortable with your attorney. The more open and honest you can be with your attorney, the more effectively he or she can advocate for you.
  • You can afford a lawyer – many premises liability attorneys work on a contingency basis. This means that you pay them only after they recover compensation for you. Ask attorneys about their fee structure right up front so that there won’t be a surprise later.
  • Experience matters. Many lawyers handle multiple practice areas, but most have one or two areas of particular specialization. Try to find one whose specialty applies to your situation. No matter how highly an attorney comes recommended, if they are inexperienced with your type of case, they will not be able to get the maximum compensation for you.
  • If someone makes it sound like your case will be easy, they may not be dealing honestly with you. The long-term effects of injuries suffered due to the negligence of others can be very serious; premises liability claims are NOT frivolous, but an attorney should tell you what drawbacks they see in your situation to help you make an informed decision.
  • Once you have settled on someone you are comfortable with, check with the Colorado Supreme Court to see if the lawyer you have chosen has had any complaints registered against him or her. This can be done online, and only takes a few minutes.
