Read on to learn eight reasons to seek legal advice after a car accident from a skilled Denver personal injury attorney.
You Suspect Driver Negligence
If you suspect that your accident was the result of driver negligence, you should absolutely speak with an attorney. You will need evidence of fault in order to secure payment from the negligent driver*s insurance company, and an experienced attorney will be able to collect all of the evidence needed to win your case.
You Believe Road Conditions Were a Factor
If road conditions were a factor in your accident (even if you were involved in a single-vehicle crash), this could entitle you to financial compensation as well. You may have a claim against the government entity responsible for maintaining the road, the government contractor that constructed the road or another third party.
You Think Something Went Wrong with Your Vehicle
If you think something went wrong with your vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation for a vehicle defect. Defective brakes, defective tires, defective airbags and various other defective car components have all been known to cause serious accidents and injuries.
You Have No Idea What Caused the Accident
If you have no idea what caused the accident, this is reason enough alone to seek legal representation. You deserve to know what happened; and, if someone else was to blame, you deserve to recover just compensation.
You are Concerned that You Were Partially at Fault
If you are concerned that you were partially at fault, this should not dissuade you from consulting with a personal injury attorney. There are two reasons why: First, you might be wrong. Second, you could still be entitled to a partial financial recovery under Colorado law.
You May Be Entitled to a Significant Financial Recovery
If you suffered injuries that required medical treatment, your losses flowing from the accident could be substantial. In addition to ongoing medical bills, you could also be facing loss of income, chronic pain and other compensable losses.
The Insurance Companies Do Not Have to (and Will Not) Help You
The insurance companies are under no obligation to help you maximize your financial recovery. In fact, from the moment you file a claim, the insurance companies will be working to limit your recovery as much as possible. By working with an experienced personal injury attorney, you can make sure you have a clear understanding of your losses, and you can avoid letting the insurance companies take advantage of you.
It Costs You Nothing to Make an Informed Decision
Finally, it costs you nothing to learn about your rights. Your initial consultation with a Denver personal injury attorney should be free and confidential, and your attorney should be willing to devote the time necessary to help you make an informed decision.
