Auto Accidents

According to the Colorado State Patrol (CSP), approximately 1,500 to 2,500 car accidents occur in Colorado each month. The severity of these accidents ranges from minor collisions to severe injury accidents and even fatal crashes.

Despite the necessary precautions, there is always a chance that another driver’s negligence or recklessness will result in an automobile accident resulting in severe injury or fatality.  Because of another driver’s distracted driving, reckless driving, or drunk driving, your life and that of your passengers is forever altered.

Following a car accident, it is important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney in Denver, CO, immediately. The auto insurance company may lessen the burden of medical expenses, compensate for property damage, and allow you to recoup some of your loss. However, their purposed resolution is generally insufficient to cover long-term medical costs, loss of future earnings, expenses for rehabilitation, and the effect of permanent or long-term disability.

You should not have to suffer because of another person's actions. It's important to explore all of your legal options and hold the driver accountable for his or her behavior. Call an experienced personal injury attorney in Denver, CO, to find out how much your car accident case is worth.
