Auto Accident Attorneys in Colorado Springs and the Denver area
Were you hurt in an auto accident in Colorado?
You may have already received a call (or dozens of calls) from the other driver’s insurance company, looking to quickly settle with you for very little money. Maybe you believe you don’t have a claim since the other driver did not have any insurance. Don’t sign your rights away and don’t give up so easily. Meet with one of our lawyers who can explain how you can be compensated for your injuries and suffering. Allow us to deal with the insurance carriers so that you can focus on getting the treatment you need to bring you back to baseline.
Immediately after we begin representation, we will investigate your accident, including obtaining a traffic accident report, gathering photographs or video, discovering information about the defendant driver and speaking with witnesses. We will contact any insurance companies involved so that you won’t have to talk to them anymore, and you can focus on getting better. One of the biggest myths in auto accidents is that the defendant driver’s insurance carrier will pay for your medical expenses as you treat. This is entirely false, as it has no obligation to pay for anything until you are ready to settle. We will work with your insurance company to see if you have been paying premiums for coverage that can promptly provide help. For example, Colorado law requires that an insurance company offer you “medical payments coverage” when you purchase a policy. This coverage pays for treatment related to an accident, regardless of who is at fault – without delay. The law even allows you to “stack” this coverage on top of another if, for example, you live with a family member who also has the same coverage on a different policy. Finally, if you do not have the capability to pay for treatment of your injuries, our firm may be able to work with your healthcare providers, your health insurance carrier or medical financing companies to allow you to continue to treat until complete recovery. Knowing the full extent of your injuries and losses is crucial as resolution of these cases, whether by settlement or trial, are final.

What to Do
If you are in an accident on the roads, then first and foremost, you should ensure that your health is a top priority. Sometimes the symptoms of a car accident injury do not present themselves until some hours after the incident, so it is vitally important that you get checked out by a doctor, likely at a hospital. You will also want to get the pertinent insurance and personal information from the other driver. Once you are ready, you should contact a lawyer to discuss your case. A competent lawyer will be able to take over the case management and details as you focus on getting better.
