How May We Help You?
What Should You Do After a Motor Vehicle Accident?
Accidents happen in a split second and can throw your world into chaos. Call 911 immediately if anyone has a serious injury and follow the instructions of the dispatcher and paramedics. Remember that your safety is of utmost importance. Once you have provided for the well-being of yourself and those around you, try to take these steps, if physically possible:
- Call the police: The police should come and gather evidence to file an accident report. Make sure you know how to get this report after it is finished
- Gather driver information: Get insurance information, names, and vehicle information from the other people involved in the accident.
- Collect eyewitness information: Record the names and phone numbers of any witnesses.
- Take pictures: If you can, take as many photos of the accident scene and your injuries as possible or have someone you trust to take them for you.
- Get timely medical care: Even if you don’t feel injured, seek immediate medical treatment after an accident. You could have unnoticed injuries that were masked by adrenaline or shock. Never state that you feel OK because these statements could be used against you later.
- Contact a personal injury law firm: As soon as possible, engage the services of a personal injury lawyer. They can advise you on what further steps you should take. Do not agree to any settlement from the insurance company before consulting an attorney. Also, do not apologize to anyone or discuss fault after an accident, even on social media.

What Are Common Causes of Car Accidents?
Car accidents happen daily across Colorado, leading to hundreds of injuries and, sadly, sometimes, deaths. Many of these car accidents and their accompanying serious injuries, medical expenses, and mental trauma could be prevented if drivers took a little more care during their travels. Some of the most frequent causes of car accidents include:
- Distracted driving: This is, unfortunately, the most common cause of motor vehicle accidents in Colorado and around the country, and it is almost entirely preventable. Drivers may be distracted by eating, using the phone, speaking to their passengers, or anything else that pulls their attention from the road. It only takes a moment of inattention to cause a car accident.
- Fatigued driving: Driving while tired is nearly as dangerous as driving while intoxicated and dramatically increases the risk of car crashes. If a driver is tired, they should find a safe place to stop and rest before continuing.
- Speeding: A lot of thought goes into setting safe speed limits for roads. By being in a hurry, drivers reduce their reaction times and lengthen the distance they need to stop in an emergency, increasing the likelihood of losing control of their vehicle.
- Texting or making phone calls: With cell phones being a ubiquitous part of everyone’s lives, many people have trouble putting theirs away for the duration of their drive. But texting or being distracted by a phone conversation makes an auto accident much more likely.
- Driving while intoxicated: Nearly a third of all fatal crashes in Colorado in the last several years have been caused by drugged or drunk driving.
- Reckless Driving: Failing to follow posted signs, weaving in and out of traffic, not checking for other vehicles or pedestrians while turning, and other types of careless driving can result in tragic and devastating car accidents.
- Failing to compensate for poor road conditions: When there is heavy snow, pouring rain, or limited visibility, drivers need to slow down, leave more space between vehicles, and remain vigilant to avoid accidents.
What Questions Should You Ask During Your Initial Consultation?
During your initial consultation, an experienced car accident attorney will review your case, study any documentation you’ve provided, and ask questions about what happened. The initial consultation not only provides your car accident lawyer with an understanding of your injuries and how they occurred but also gives you a chance to see if this is someone you feel comfortable hiring. The lawyer should be prepared to answer any questions you have about their fees, experience, and their potential representation of you. Remember that you are never under an obligation to hire an attorney after a consultation, even if you give them specific details about your case. Some questions you may wish to ask include:
- How long do you think it might take for my case to reach a resolution?
- Do you have experience with car accident cases similar to mine? Did those cases settle out of court or go to trial?
- Is my case likely to go to trial?
- How do you and your law office communicate with clients? How often?
- What is the typical range for settlements for a case like mine?
- How are your fees structured?
- What legal expenses might I be responsible for?
- Do you feel I have a viable case?

What Types of Compensation May Be Awarded in Your Personal Injury Case?
Any kind of car accident, no matter how it occurs, has the potential to be catastrophic for you and your family. On top of the pain and challenges of recovering from an injury, you could experience a stressful financial crisis due to lost wages and high medical bills. A personal injury law firm exists to help clients recover fair compensation for these losses. The types of damages auto accident attorneys may secure for victims include:
- Economic damages: These are financial losses that occurred as a result of your accident. They include medical expenses, lost wages, property replacement or repair, rehabilitation costs, and more.
- Non-economic damages: These are non-monetary damages caused by the injury. They cover pain and suffering, mental anguish, future medical expenses, loss of future earning potential, and other losses.
- Punitive damages: This compensation is meant to dissuade others from committing the same act that caused the injury by awarding extra compensation on top of the other damages. These may be assessed if the defendant was found to be grossly negligent, willfully malicious, or exceedingly reckless in their actions.
