Colorado Car Accident Lawyer

Call (888) 471-3714 to speak with a car accident attorney.

Every year in the United States more than 6 million car accidents occur, and many of them are severe or fatal. With the increasing number of cars that are driving on the roads throughout the country, accidents are seen every day. Due to these car accidents, more than three million people have been mildly or severely injured. Among these three million injuries, more than two million have resulted in permanent damage. More than 40,000 deaths each year are due to car accidents. Many of these car accidents are caused by drivers who are not responsible behind the wheels. In the United States, claims of personal injury due to car accidents are very high. A reckless driver will have to pay dearly for his or her bad driving. If you are a resident of Colorado and you or someone close to you has been involved in a car accident at the fault of another driver, it is imperative that you contact a Colorado car accident lawyer or attorney as soon as possible.

Car accidents can be expensive. Repairs, insurance, medical bills and lost wages can make the process even more stressful. With the guidance of your car accident or personal injury lawyer, you can file for a claim on wrongful death or personal injury against the negligent driver who caused the accident. Negligence of reckless driving can include actions such as talking or texting on a cell phone, speeding, driving while intoxicated, failure to yield, and many more. The first thing your lawyer will do is determine how the other driver was negligent. He may call in expert witnesses who can investigate the scene, speak with witnesses, and gather other evidence pertinent to the case. Negligence is usually what must be proven in a personal injury claim, and having a lawyer on your side will help you do that in the best way possible.

Your Colorado car accident lawyer/attorney should be committed to protecting and justifying your rights. If you are affected because of the negligence of the driver, he or she should see to it that you are properly compensated. Your lawyer should seek to get you justice for the pain and suffering that you have endured, and provide you legal access to services, as well as presenting your case in the court. When you are looking for the right lawyer, be sure to hire one you feel comfortable with, and someone who has a solid history of winning personal injury cases in the courtroom. He or she should have the connections and knowledge of the local court system to guide your case properly and seek maximum compensation.

When you are speaking with different lawyers, be sure to keep in mind how they will be paid. This is a big part of searching for the right lawyer. Some may try to take advantage of your situation, while others are really there to work for you. Many lawyers and attorneys offer free initial consultations to where you can discuss these matters and also go over the details of your case. Lawyers are usually paid one of two ways: they can either receive a portion of your compensation package (but will not charge anything if your case is lost), or they may ask for a payment up front, called a retainer, and work off of that. It is up to you which one to choose. Do what is best for you during this difficult time, and remember that you have a lawyer on your side to fight with you.
