Car Accident

If you or a family member has suffered a serious injury in a car accident, the advice of an experienced personal injury lawyer can help you collect the compensation you need to support your recovery.

Insurance companies and their attorneys like to characterize every car wreck as an "accident."  This implies that the collision was nobody's fault. But whether a collision is caused by inattention, distraction, fatigue, alcohol, negligence or failure to maintain a vehicle, in the vast majority of cases, somebody is at fault. 

We Have the Experience to Help

If you have suffered injury or loss due to somebody else’s action, it is your right to be compensated. Defendants or insurers may try to avoid responsibility for causing somebody else’s injury. Do not let them. 

It is the job of the insurance adjuster and their attorney to minimize your claim.

If you ask about the value of your claim, you will get a very different answer from an insurance adjuster or an insurance attorney then you will from an experienced personal injury attorney. 

Personal injury claims are negotiable. Know your rights. Even if you do not end up retaining an attorney to represent you, it is imperative that you consult with an attorney. Many people do not want to file a lawsuit and avoid hiring lawyers on that basis. However, out-of-court settlemnts are possible and you should not be pressured to take a course of action that makes you uncomfortable.

The earlier you act, the more likely you are to obtain maximum compensation.

Car Accident Questions

You probably have a lot of questions, for example:

  • Can I recover my lost wages even though I used sick leave or vacation time?
  • Is there any way to have my medical bills, co-payments, or deductibles paid quickly?
  • Do I have to pay my health insurance company back for the benefits it paid?
  • If my health insurance company paid a reduced rate on my medical bills, is the liability insurance company responsible for paying me the full amount of my doctor's bill or just the re-priced rate?
  • How much is my case worth?
  • Do I need an attorney?

We will provide you with an honest opinion and evaluation of your case. In some cases, you may not need an attorney. Many attorneys will not admit this. We will. 

Most of our cases are handled on a contingency or percentage basis, so we will not pursue a frivolous or losing case. After all, we only get paid if you do. 

If we do become involved with your case, you will appreciate our proactive approach. Because we know how losses can affect your income and daily life, we can anticipate problems and address them quickly.

Whether you run into denials from your health insurance, need additional medical tests or treatment to support your insurance claim, or need help with repairs to a damaged car, we can help. We are experienced in finding alternate sources to replace lost income or pay for medical bills, co-payments, and deductibles. If you act before the at-fault driver's criminal case goes to court, you might have the right to apply for victims' compensation or criminal restitution

We will also attempt to recover the maximum available for your damages under Colorado law. We develop the facts necessary to establish liability against the other driver under our state's fault-based insurance laws. If your injuries, damages, and losses are serious enough to exceed the other driver's liability limits, we will look for additional defendants and insurance coverage wherever possible.

We can help you recover compensation for accidents resulting in wrongful death, serious facial scars, brain trauma, severe spinal cord injuries and long term neck or back pain. If you live in Aurora, the Denver Metro Area, Utah, or Wyoming and have been permanently disabled, we'll make sure that your damages demand includes and explains the full amount you'll need for your future financial security and maximum possible comfort.
