Denver Accident Frequently Asked Questions
Attorney Representation in Denver, Colorado Since 1979
What is the difference between a claim and a personal injury lawsuit?
Making a claim for compensation is usually the first step in the path to recovering compensation for an injury. You can file a claim with an insurance company, say after an auto accident. Our Denver personal injury lawyer can insure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation possible from this company; but if they refuse to comply, we will take your case into litigation (court).
How do I know if I have a case?
You should speak to a Denver personal injury attorney. It is true that not everyone who is injured in an accident has a viable claim for compensation.
What should I do after an accident?
It is very important that the police create an accident report so you can document who was at fault and what happened during the accident. If you are injured or feeling achy, get evaluated at a hospital. Trained medical professionals are there to make sure your injuries don’t get worse. If you have a camera, use it – Even if you just have a cell phone, take pictures to document the damage to both vehicles.
Should I speak to an attorney before contacting an insurance company?
It’s okay to contact your insurance company to tell them you’ve had an accident, but do not talk to the other driver’s insurance company. These adjusters are trying to limit what they owe an injured party. These people are not on your side and should not be trusted without an attorney present to preserve your rights.
Why do I need an attorney to handle my accident case?
Because a Denver personal injury lawyer can maximize your claim for compensation as well as protect your rights. Personal injury cases are covered by statutes of limitations, which limits the time you have to make your claim. Contact us right away to learn more about what can be done for your case.
