Whenever we drive, we’re responsible for driving carefully. Often, people don’t, and that’s when you can get hurt. If you’ve been the victim of a drunk, distracted, or careless driver, you will have medical bills, you’ll miss work, and you may experience lasting pain or discomfort. It’s not fair that your life should be turned upside down because someone else chose not to drive safely. Under the law, you are entitled to be compensated by the person who caused your injuries. Cannon Hadfield Stieben Doutt, LLC can help you recover everything you’re entitled to. Contact us today to set up a free meeting with a personal injury lawyer to discuss your situation.
Car drivers are mostly good at watching for other cars. Unfortunately, they are often very bad at watching out for bikes. Even worse, if you’re on a bike and you get hit by a car, you are likely to be very badly injured. If you get hit, it’s not your fault for riding a bike; it’s the other driver’s fault for not driving safely. All of CHSD’s partners regularly ride in the Fort Collins area, so they understand how dangerously some drivers act around bikers. If you’ve been injured while riding, contact us today to talk with a personal injury lawyer.
Bicycle and motorcycle cases also present special challenges in the legal system. Some jurors believe all riders are reckless and disregard the rules of the road. There are also special rules about how wearing a helmet affects your legal case. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you navigate these issues and successfully present your case in court.
We are all pedestrians. Whether we’re walking to work or just walking across a parking lot, we are venerable to drivers who don’t look where they’re going. And when someone hits a pedestrian with their car, the results can be horrifying. If you’ve been hit by a driver while on foot, contact Cannon Hadfield Stieben & Doutt, LLC for a free consultation with a personal injury lawyer.
People who invite other people onto their property have a responsibility to make sure the property is free from danger. There’s no reason you should suffer because someone else chose to let you onto their property without making sure it’s safe. If you’ve suffered an injury in a store, a warehouse, on a sidewalk that resulted from the owner’s lack of care, contact Cannon Hadfield Stieben & Doutt, LLC today to set up a free meeting with a personal injury lawyer.
We all buy insurance so that when we’re injured, we’re protected. Insurance companies gladly accept our monthly payments, and we expect them to pay us what we’re owed when we get injured. Often though, insurance companies try to avoid their responsibilities. Sometimes you will receive an offer to settle all your claims very soon after an accident even though you may not know the full extent of your injuries. Sometimes they will even deny that they owe you anything.
Auto insurance policies also include uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage that protects you if someone hurts you but does not have enough insurance to cover your injuries. If this happens, your own insurance policy must pay you if you’ve suffered more than the amount paid by the other driver’s insurance. Even so, insurance companies will often try to say that you are not as badly injured as you’re claiming so that they don’t have to pay you what you’re entitled to.
If any of these things is happening to you, you can protect yourself. You can talk to an attorney to decide whether to accept an offer or whether to hold out for more. If an insurance company has refused to compensate you, you can may still be able to force them to pay you. If a court determines that they refused to pay in bad faith, you may even be entitled to double your damages. If you’ve been refused uninsured or under-insured motorist coverage, I can help you decide whether to pursue your claim in court.
If you are in any of the situations described above, contact Cannon Hadfield Stieben & Doutt, LLC today to set up a free meeting to discuss your best course of action with a 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 personal injury lawyers at Cannon Hadfield Stieben & Doutt, LLC.

“I had a difficult insurance claim. The insurers had damaged my property by sending an incompetent assessor who caused further damage. They then delayed paying out and were generally slow and unhelpful. Once this firm was involved the loss adjuster agreed to settle within one week. The advice I received from these lawyers was excellent, efficient and effective.” – Charlotte
