Car Accidents

Highly Experienced Car Accident Lawyers

Every year, there are millions of car crashes in the United States. Fortunately, most of these involve property damage only, with no injuries. However, there are many cases in which a dispute arises after the accident and in an auto collision, the individual that can be proven responsible for the incident has a financial obligation for any and all damages that are a result of the collision.

Whether the dispute is between drivers involved in the crash or between an insurance company and a claimant, it is a fact of life that in many cases, it becomes necessary to speak with an experienced car accident attorney to discuss your options. An attorney may be able to help make another driver take responsibility for his or her role in the accident or make an insurance company pay the full value of a claim they are hesitant to pay.


If you have been injured in an auto accident, damages may include property loss and related bodily injuries. Colorado maintains a law requiring all drivers to have a minimum of $25,000 of liability insurance of which there are two types:

  • Property Damage Liability Coverage – damages to automobiles involved, paid on behalf of the at-fault driver.
  • Bodily Injury Liability Coverage – economic damages: past and future medical expenses, wage loss and any other expenses related to physical impairment and disfigurement.
  • Non-Economic Damages: pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, inconvenience and other similar losses.

Establishing a Claim

We hear a lot about lawsuits in the news and sometimes people try to make it sound like suing someone is easy. It’s not. In order to present a successful civil claim against someone after an auto collision, you need to demonstrate that the person caused you harm. There are three requirements for establishing a successful car accident claim:

  • Fault must be provable so the at-fault driver can be proven responsible for the cause of the collision.
  • There are damages incurred.
  • The claimed damages must be a result of the collision.
