Common Causes of Car Accidents

A significant portion of our work as car accident attorneys is investigating our clients’ accidents for signs of negligence and proof of liability. When a case is your word against the other driver’s, it can create a legal impasse that benefits no one. But if we have convincing evidence that shows the other driver did something wrong, it can help ensure that your case progresses without delay and benefits you. It comes down to showing that the other driver did something wrong, or even that an entirely separate party did something that contributed to your crash.

We are well-versed in handling car accident claims that involve all types of negligence, such as:

  • Drunk driving: Intoxicated drivers pose a serious threat to the safety of everyone on the road. After a single alcoholic drink, a driver will start to experience a significant loss of vehicular control, worsened ability to focus, blurred vision, and other problems.
  • Distracted driving: With cellphones becoming extremely commonplace, the risk of distracted driving accidents has also become greater. Looking at a smartphone to read a text message is a common form of distracted driving and one of the most dangerous.
  • Speeding: Reckless driving can take many forms, but speeding is the most common. Speed limits are carefully calculated based on the road’s typical traffic conditions, as well as its design. Breaking the speed limit is, therefore, always dangerous.
  • Poorly manufactured auto parts: Some car accidents are not caused by the clear mistakes of a driver involved. Instead, the crash can be linked back to some sort of mistake that happened while a part of the car was being made, such as if a brake failure causes a wreck.

No matter what party or parties contributed to your accident, we have the skills required to bring a case against them. This is what we have done for so many clients in the past. Let us stand up for you, too! Call (303) 622-5858 at your next opportunity.

Injuries Suffered in Car Accidents

Were you seriously injured in a car accident, but the other driver and their insurer don’t believe you? We are well aware of how this situation can pan out. The insurance company says your injuries are exaggerated, refuses your claim, and makes your life difficult in hopes that you give up your case altogether. Don’t let this happen to you and your case.

Team up with our car accident lawyers, and we can deal with the insurance company and any other form of opposition for you. We aren’t intimidated by their tactics. Plus, we know what to do to prove the severity of your injuries and how they are impacting your life. For example, we can work with medical experts for cases involving complex or life-changing injuries.

Car accident survivors often suffer serious injuries, including:

  • Traumatic brain injuries: A traumatic brain injury or TBI will change your life forever in one way or another. Symptoms can include migraines, memory issues, and so on. The compensation you demand from the other driver must reflect this extensive and permanent harm, so it could be significant.
  • Spinal cord injuries: Only a slight amount of damage to the spinal cord can result in partial or total paralysis. It can also cause chronic pain. If you were diagnosed with a back injury, let us know, so we can calculate the damages you will need in the future to live with it as comfortably as possible.
  • Broken bones: A broken bone can sometimes heal readily. But they can also heal incorrectly, slowly, and painfully. It is important to get a prognosis for your injuries when creating your claim.
  • Whiplash: In rear-end collisions, the likelihood of someone in the front car suffering whiplash is high. Whiplash is a soft tissue injury of the neck and upper back. It can begin as a subtle ache but worsen to chronic, disabling pain.

What Damages You Can Recover After a Crash?

In a car accident claim, you can seek compensation that pays for past and future medical bills, lost wages, and complications related to your permanent disability. These costs are considered economic damages, which are related to tangible monetary costs. You can also seek compensation that pays for your pain, suffering, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life. Such damages are considered non-economic, and they relate to more abstract losses.

The costs associated with the repair or replacement of your vehicle are technically handled in a separate claim called a property damage claim. Our team can help you with the details of this case type as well. Although, insurance companies usually put up the greatest fight when considering bodily injury claims because the costs associated with these claims can be much more than the price of taking a car to the body shop.

What to Do After a Crash

Getting evidence to prove that you didn’t cause your car accident is a multistep process that begins the moment the crash occurs. In many cases, the best proof of negligence can be found right there at the scene of the crash and nowhere else. That’s why it is so important to act correctly and accordingly in the moments following a collision.

Let our lawyers know if you took these steps after your car accident:

  1. Get help: If anyone has been injured or if either vehicle has been significantly damaged, then you should call 911 without delay. Emergency responders can help control the scene and administer first aid. Also, the reports from police officers, firefighters, and EMTs can be used to build your case.
  2. Collect information: You have to identify all other parties involved in your crash, especially the drivers. Exchange identifying and insurance information with everyone before you leave the scene. If anyone leaves the scene of a crash before being identified, then it could constitute a hit-and-run crime.
  3. Take pictures: Use your smartphone to photograph as many details of the accident as possible. The more pictures, the better. You will want to capture vehicle damage, injuries, road and traffic conditions, and the weather or position of the sun. If your app allows it, enable timestamps on your pictures, too, for easy reference.
  4. Go to urgent care: Anyone involved in a car accident should seek medical attention as soon as possible if emergency medical care is not needed. If you aren’t taken to the ER, you should still go to urgent care shortly after the crash for a medical checkup. This step can help prevent subtle injuries from worsening, and it can protect your claim later by reinforcing when and why your injuries happened.
  5. Call our attorneys: The last step to take shortly after a car accident is to dial (303) 622-5858 and speak with our Greenwood Village car accident attorneys, of course. We’re always standing by to hear from new and returning clients who have been in serious crashes.
