An automobile accident is among the most traumatic events that any of us can experience. Everything changes in an instant, and your life is never the same again.

In a perfect world, car manufacturers would never place profits above safety. But, all too often, this is exactly what happens. In a rush to get their products to market, car companies fail to ensure that their vehicles are safe, and the consumer pays the price. Too often mistakes, shortcuts, and oversights are made by automobile manufacturers, who sell their cars with faulty designs or manufacturing errors to consumers. The consequences can be deadly.
Some of the types of auto product liability cases we fight against include:

Car accidents not only result in serious injury; they are also the leading cause of death in the United States. If your loved one was killed in a car accident, you have the right to pursue compensation from the negligent party in a wrongful death claim.
Wrongful death compensation includes:
It may feel impossible to fully recover from the loss of a loved one, but we hope that finding financial stability after such a tragic event can help you find peace of mind as well. We have litigated countless wrongful death cases for the surviving family members of those who lost their lives in car accidents. We believe this is one of the most important aspects of our occupation and we work tirelessly to do everything we can for our clients.
The typical car accident case begins with an initial filing of a claim, followed soon by contact from any concerned insurance companies. Even though this is still a preliminary step, you must have retained the assistance of a car accident lawyer already.
Why do I need an attorney?
Saying the wrong thing to your insurance company or the insurance provider of the liable party could shift accountability onto you. There have been countless incidents of drivers who were wholly not responsible for a car accident paying for their own repairs and medical bills due to talking to insurers themselves, rather than letting a lawyer handle it.
After your claim has been filed and insurance companies have been notified, you should consider getting another medical checkup, assuming you have received one already.
Is it really important to see a doctor?
The value of your case will depend on your maximum medical improvement (MMI), or the point at which your conditions and injuries can no longer expect to improve. Additional checkups will not only help you establish how much monetary compensation you will eventually need but also help you recuperate safely.
Will my case go to trial?
Lastly, the actual handling of your case. An out-of-court settlement is often ideal, allowing you to recover sooner than later, but our Denver car accident lawyers always prepare each case we take as if it is going to trial. If this is appropriate for your situation, do not worry. We will handle all the difficult paperwork and represent you during litigation. In the end, your case may be closed within two months if it is simple and settled, or twelve months or more if it is complicated and goes to court.
