I Am a Visitor Who Suffered a Personal Injury in Colorado: What Should I Do?

At Donaldson Law, LLC, our Denver personal injury attorneys represent clients throughout Colorado — including those who have been injured while visiting from out of state or another country.

We understand that negligence is not limited to each person’s home state or city. Injuries or loss of life can occur during vehicle collisions, premises liability incidents, or while simply staying at a hotel on your way through Colorado.

When people get hurt because of another person or party’s negligence, they may be eligible to pursue a claim against the individual or company’s insurance coverage, so they can seek the financial compensation they need to get their lives back on track.

We can help, starting with a free consultation.

Who Can Be Held Liable When Visitors are Injured in Colorado?

To determine who may be held liable for your injuries as a visitor to Colorado, it is important to discuss your case with a personal injury lawyer in Colorado.

If the incident occurred here, the attorney must be licensed in Colorado to represent you in court. If you partner with a personal injury lawyer from your home state, he or she must have a local associate lawyer designated to manage your case, which means you would have to hire two lawyers, which come with two corresponding legal fees.

At Donaldson Law, our skilled personal injury lawyers in Denver understand local court rules and procedures, so you can get the most from our legal representation, even after you have returned home.

Our Denver personal injury attorneys represent visitors, tourists, and professionals who do not call Colorado home in incidents involving negligent:

  • Passenger vehicle drivers, including those who were intoxicated or speeding.
  • Commercial vehicle drivers or trucking companies.
  • Restaurant, bar, nightclub, or restaurant owners/operators.
  • Hotel, lodge, and resort owners/operators.
  • Convention, tour, or other event organizers.
  • Property owners/operators who fail to maintain their premises.

If you have been injured while visiting Colorado, seek medical care right away, and follow all your physician’s orders, including staying in the state until you are released, and attending all follow-up appointments once you are well enough to return home.

As soon as your injuries allow, and before you leave the state, contact our experienced Denver personal injury attorneys right away. You do not have to face the negligent party’s insurance company alone or worry that your case will not be taken seriously because you live outside of Colorado.

We can help outline your case, preserve evidence, and fully investigate the incident and circumstances that caused your injuries, so you can focus on regaining your physical and emotional wellness while we manage the legal details.
