After an auto collision, you have multiple issues to juggle right away, including your car’s property damage, getting medical treatment, paying for medical bills and losing time at work. Meanwhile, the insurance company is working full time to find ways to pay you as little as possible–or even nothing at all. The insurance company will take advantage of your stress, frustration and lack of experience to their benefit. You need a Denver auto accident lawyer who knows how to deal with these issues so you can focus on taking care of yourself.

How much does a car accident lawyer charge?
Law firms charge a variety of fees and fee structures. At Front Range Injury Attorneys, everybody gets the same fee structure no matter if your case is big or small.

Our legal fees for your personal injury claim is based upon an agreed-upon percentage of the financial compensation we recover. We put our knowledge and experience to work as your advocate to maximize the value of your case and recover as much money as possible.

Who is liable after a crash for my damages?
Liability in a car accident depends upon the circumstances of the crash and Colorado tort law. Colorado is a fault state. In a fault state, the responsible party, or its insurance company, pays for the damages caused to other people in the collision. Multiple parties can be liable for your car accident injuries. An important part of our state’s fault rules is that you must be less than fifty percent responsible for the crash. The extent you are responsible for your own injuries will reduce the amount you can recover for your damages. This is known as comparative negligence.
Determining fault is an important part of determining who is liable and ultimately what a negligent driver and the insurance company may pay on your claim. Insurance companies and their lawyers will look for every opportunity to assign some or all of the blame for the wreck on you. That reduces or eliminates their liability for your damages. Our skilled Denver car accident lawyers understand the importance of investigating liability and challenging the insurance company blaming you for the crash.
Some of the ways we investigate your auto claim include:
- Obtaining the police report and evidence collected by police
- Testimony from witnesses
- Photos from the scene and vehicle damage
- Obtaining property damage appraisals and photos
- Hiring accident reconstruction experts to evaluate the evidence and explain the circumstances of the collision
The sooner you hire our Denver personal injury lawyers to represent you, the sooner we can begin investigating liability in your case. The insurance company will begin their own investigation immediately and try to trick you into admitting you caused the car accident. We will put the insurer on notice right away to stop harassing you and handle communication with them about the collision and your injuries.

What do I do after a car accident?
There are several steps you should take after a motor vehicle accident.
Be safe. Do not get out of your vehicle unless it is safe. If you feel any new or different sensations, do not move unless staying where you are is dangerous.
Call 911 or the police. If you or anybody else suffered injuries in the collision, call 911. The police can investigate the collision and preserve important evidence of liability. EMTs can provide emergency medical care on the scene and transport victims to the emergency room.
Take pictures. If it is safe for you to move, take pictures of the scene, damage to the vehicles involved and your injuries. If you have a passenger who is able to move, you may need to ask your passenger to take photos.
Exchange insurance information. After a collision, the drivers involved must exchange insurance information and contact information. Provide your insurance and driver’s license and ask for the same. Take photos of the insurance card and driver’s license.
Seek medical attention. As soon as you feel pain or any new sensation, seek emergency care. That may be immediately after the wreck or days later.
