Auto Accidents in Colorado

By Andrus, Hood & Wagstaff  Oct. 17, 2011 3:39p

Being involved in a motor vehicle accident is a frightening and often life-changing experience. Unfortunately, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, approximately 43,000 people lose their lives every year in fatal car crashes. About 40 percent of these are due to alcohol consumption. Furthermore, approximately 2.9 million individuals suffer injuries each year in auto accidents.

If you are involved in an auto accident, you may not be familiar with all of the legal factors involved in such a situation. You may have questions about when to file an injury claim, how long you have to file such a claim, how the insurance company will investigate your claim, how courts may deal with such issues as soft tissue damage, and whether punitive damages may be available in certain cases.

Having a Denver personal injury attorney who is experienced with such situations can be invaluable. Such an attorney can help you understand all of the legal factors and issues relating to your specific situation. Your case may rest on such relevant issues as the seriousness of your injuries, how permanent they may be, who was at fault, whether the other driver was uninsured or underinsured, whether a third party shares responsibility for your injuries, as in the case of defective auto equipment, whether you have experienced non-economic damages such as pain, suffering, or emotional trauma. Your attorney will know what to look for in your case in terms of evidence, police reports, witness testimony, and more to produce a detailed and comprehensive understanding of what actually took place in the accident.
