Drunk drivers put everyone at risk once they decide to get on the road and ignore the safety of others. Drunk driving leads to an increased chance of car accidents. These collisions often leave the other party substantially injured, or worse yet, killed. The individual that chooses to drink and drive needs to be held fully accountable for the injuries they cause individuals and their families.
The Denver drunk driving accident attorneys at Lampert & Walsh want to help. We advocate for victims of drunk driving accidents and personal injuries in the Denver and Aurora areas. We have been providing quality legal representation for those experiencing emotional and physical distress due to being in a motor vehicle accident with a drunk driver since 1979.
If you are a victim of a drunk driving accident in Denver, then you should seek immediate medical attention for yourself or any other injured persons first and foremost. You need to be checked out for injuries, some of which might seem only minor at first but are potentially quite serious in the long run — you could be injured and not even realize it.
Seeking medical attention as soon as possible also greatly strengthens your claim that you were hurt in an accident. Waiting days or even weeks to see a doctor can make it difficult to prove that your injuries were caused by a drunk driver. You also should keep a record of all your injuries and copies of your medical reports, medical bills and all correspondence with your doctors. If possible, take pictures of the accident — including any and all damage to cars, people and the surrounding area and any other damage that occurred. The more information you have, the stronger your claim will be.
After you have been the victim of a drunk driving accident in Denver, it can be a taxing time as you deal with physical injuries and emotional distress. If a loved one was hurt, you might not even be able to think straight as you are fraught with worry. However, you still want to hold the drunk driver accountable for his or her actions and receive what restitution you can. A Denver drunk driving accident attorney can guide you through the legal process of doing so. The most important thing to a drunk driving lawyer is that their client recovers from their injuries. So, if needed, our firm works with doctors in the Denver metro area and can find one to treat you on a lien basis. Your health comes before the case.
However, you still need a law firm that can help you get the settlement you deserve as well. They need to have experience in this specific area of law and the best way of building a case for you.
The state of Colorado is attempting to pass legislation that will uncap the non-economic damages that are available to victims of drunk driving. You need a law firm that knows about this potential change which will affect how much money wrongfully injured victims will receive following this tragic event.
