Don't Let an Old Injury Keep You From Compensation You Deserve

Insurance providers won’t hesitate to use your medical history against you. Insurers can likely say that your previous injuries lower the total value of your claim and will give you what they think you should get. Unfortunately, the dollar amount they offer is often far lower than what is needed to cover your costs.

If you are worried about how a previous injury could affect your outcome in the event of an accident, follow these tips to ensure you're protected ahead of time:

- If you are hurt, seek medical attention immediately.

- In order to get compensated for this accident, your medical records must show the connection between your current injuries and the crash.

- Ask the doctor to clearly state why you were hurt in your medical records. 

- Get an attorney and be honest with them about previous injuries. Even if an old injury is completely healed, you must tell your attorney as past injuries could impact your new claim.  



In 1974, Mike and Karen McDivitt started what eventually became McDivitt Law Firm. The firm is rooted in the principle that each person deserves to have equal access to the civil justice system. The McDivitts firmly believe that everyone should be able to have an attorney, whether you can afford one or not. Mike made it clear from the start that he doesn’t get a fee unless he is able to get you the money you deserve for your injuries.

In 2007, Karen and Mike’s son David joined the firm as the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. A nationally recognized trial lawyer, David now runs the firm’s litigation and trial group, where he is responsible for both trying and supervising jury trials through verdict.

Over the past several decades, the firm has become one of the largest Personal Injury law firms in Colorado. It is still family-owned, but now Mike and Karen McDivitt are able to provide quality legal representation to thousands more clients than they could when they first opened their doors. With more than 80 staff and attorneys, McDivitt Law Firm prides itself on its ability to provide first-class legal representation to each of its clients, in a way that is affordable to anyone.
