Employers cannot discriminate against people based on their race, religion, gender, disability, or sexual orientation; they cannot allow their employees to be sexually or racially harassed; they cannot pay employees unfairly; and they cannot retaliate against you for complaining about their illegal behavior.

Do I Need a Fort Collins Personal Injury Lawyer?
If you listen to insurance companies, they’ll tell you that you don’t need a personal injury lawyer. But the insurance company doesn’t have your best interests at heart. They’re only looking out for their bottom line. And trust me, they’re pros. If you’re injured, and you want to fight for the compensation the law says you’re entitled to, you need a pro on your side too. After all, you would have lived a very accident prone life if you’ve made as many insurance claims as the Fort Collins personal injury lawyers at Cannon Hadfield Stieben, LLC.
Also, by having a lawyer you let the insurance company know that they can’t lowball you and get away with it. If lowball us, we can file a lawsuit and ask a jury to tell them how much your personal injury case is worth. Although you can file a lawsuit alone, it is not recommended, and an experienced lawyer will make it much easier for you.
How Do We Handle Personal Injury Cases?
Personal injury cases have three distinct phases: 1) the preparation phase, 2) the insurance claim phase, and 3) the litigation phase. During the preparation phase, we collect records and documents that we will need as the case moves forwards and follow your progress as you recover from your injuries. Once we have all the records we need and you have recovered, we can move to step two. In the insurance claim phase, we present the documents we have collected along with a demand to the insurance company to see if we can negotiate a settlement of your claim. If the insurance company is reasonable, it’s possible that you settle your claim and never reach the third phase. But if the insurance company is unreasonable, you may have to move to the litigation phase. During this phase, we will file a lawsuit asking a court and a jury to compensate you for your injuries. Although you can still settle during the third phase, if you don’t, the case will result in a jury verdict for the amount the jury believes is fair compensation for your injuries.
At Cannon Hadfield Stieben, LLC, we emphasize quality of representation not quantity of cases. That means each lawyer and paralegal is responsible for a limited number of cases. That means they can and will devote enough time and energy to your case to get the best possible result. We also pride ourselves on being available to our clients. If you have a question or want an update on your case, you can give us a ring or shoot us an email and will will respond as soon as we can. After all, this is your case, so you deserve to know what’s going on.
I'm Injured. How Can I Pay for a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Personal injuries can be financially devastating. You have medical bills, you may be off work, and you could be without a vehicle. In addition, you may be forced to pay someone to look after your children or clean you home while you recover. How can you pay for a lawyer as well? Well, that’s what contingent fee agreements are for. If your case qualifies, we may be able to be paid at the end of the case after you’ve settled with the insurance company. That way, we’re only taking a percentage of the money we make for you. Although you may have to pay for the costs of the case, we may be able to help out further by advancing all or a portion of the costs of your case. Of course, even if we can do that, you would have to pay us back when we resolve you case.
