Do I Need a Yoder Personal Injury Lawyer?

Maximum Possible Settlement

If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you deserve to be financially compensated for your damages. This must be a sufficient and accurate fee, or you could face a future of financial difficulties.

Insurance companies are for-profit and will try to minimize their expenses. They will never generously pay you the required fee. Instead, you’ll need to fight for it.

That’s where our Yoder Personal Injury Lawyers come in. We will use our successful experience to win you the maximum possible settlement.


Proving the true value of your damages requires proof. That comes from evidence acquired from intense investigations.

These investigations require resources and strong connections. Our Yoder personal injury lawyers have exactly that. We will conduct intensive investigations, utilizing specialists that can prove the true extent of your injuries.

Communications on Your Behalf

Communicating with insurance companies and opposing lawyers is daunting and stressful. It is the last thing you need during your recovery period.

Insurers are also notorious for bullying, manipulating and exploring victims. We will take on the communications on your behalf, from paperwork to phone calls. So you can recover and relax knowing your case is in safe hands.

Why Use Our Yoder Personal Injury Lawyers

Successful Experience

Our award-winning Yoder personal injury lawyers are recognized as ‘super lawyers’ and top-tier litigators. We have a successfully proven approach, recovering millions of dollars for accident victims.

Empathetic and Honest

We treat our clients like people, not numbers. We know you have a life that needs rebuilding, a family that is affected and a future that depends on our efforts.

We’ll take the time to learn about how your injuries are truly affecting you. We’ll keep you involved from start to finish, addressing any concerns you have. But taking the weight off your shoulders, so you can recover as best possible.

No Win, No Fee

We only get paid if we recover money for you. There are no upfront legal fees for you to pay. That means we’re invested in winning your case.

What is a Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury claim is a civil legal dispute made by an injured person against a party who caused the accident.

The claim demands compensation for the victim’s damages. To win a personal injury claim, the plaintiff (the victim) must prove that the defendant is liable for their injuries.

To prove liability, you must prove negligence. Negligence is the failure to uphold a duty of care. For example, in a car accident, it could be when another driver drives dangerously.

To prove negligence, you must demonstrate:

  • Someone owed you a duty of care.
  • That person breached the duty of care.
  • The breach resulted in your injuries.

Personal Injury Claims do not seek to punish the other party or criminally charge them. Instead, they seek to provide the victim with the money they deserve from the relevant insurance company or negligent party.

What If I Was Partly At-Fault for the Accident?

Even if you were partly at fault for the accident, you may still have a chance at gaining a settlement. In Colorado, there is a comparative fault law. This law means that your settlement is reduced if you had a share of the blame. As long as you weren’t over 50% responsible, you may have a chance.

Please contact our Yoder personal injury lawyers for an assessment to see what is possible.

How Can I File a Personal Injury Claim in Yoder?

To file a personal injury claim in Yoder, you must send the claim paperwork to the insurance company of the at-fault party. This paperwork should include:

  • Evidence of the cause of the accident
  • Evidence the negligent party owed you a duty of care
  • Evidence of your injuries
  • Evidence of the value of your damages.

Our Yoder personal injury attorneys can do this on your behalf.

Can I Afford a Yoder Personal Injury Lawyer?

There is a misconception that lawyers are only for the rich. But when working with a ‘no-win, no-fee’ lawyer you don’t need to pay anything upfront. The payment is taken from the settlement you win.

Therefore, anyone can afford a personal injury lawyer if suffering serious injuries that weren’t their fault.

How Long Do I Have to Make a Personal Injury Claim in Yoder?

We highly advise that you do not delay. Investigations, evidence collection and negotiations could delay your case.

What Settlement Can I Get From My Personal Injury Claim?

Every accident and victim is different. But you must ensure that you demand a sufficient settlement for your damages. Damages are the losses you’ve experienced as a result of the accident; they can be economic and non-economic (read more below). Our experienced Yoder personal injury lawyers will conduct deep investigations to reveal the true value of your claim.

Limits on Recoverable Damages in Yoder:

  • Loss of Consortium: The loss of security, comfort and companionship for your family.

  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder: Similarly, PTSD is a common mental health condition for accident victims. Symptoms include nightmares and flashbacks.
  • Pain and Suffering: Any ongoing pain, emotional distress and discomfort should be factored into the settlement, especially if they impair daily life.
  • Scarring and Disfigurement: Physical changes to one’s body due to the accident can dramatically impact their self-confidence, relationships and standing in society.
  • Long-Term Disability: Long-term disabilities are life-changing. The impact and changes to one’s life must be factored into calculations.
