Car Crash Lawyer

For many of us, being involved in a serious motor-vehicle accident will be among the most traumatic experiences of our lives.  

People often ask us: “What should I do after an accident?” 

The best answer is to seek immediate advice from an experienced Denver car accident lawyer. We know that might sound like an obvious response from a personal injury law firm. But the reality is that, from the moment your crash is reported to an insurance company, a team of adjusters, investigators and legal and medical experts are assigned with one goal: To limit the cost of your claim.  

The more serious the accident, the more senior and experienced the team arrayed against you. This is even true when dealing with your own insurance company. Insurance companies will make an independent determination of fault, regardless of the opinion of law enforcement at the scene - even if citations were issued. Additionally, you may be faced with making a claim against your own insurance company, particularly if you carry optional uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage and an at-fault driver does not have insurance or lacks sufficient insurance coverage to compensate you for all damages.

Additionally, Colorado is a modified comparative negligence state. That means your ability to recover damages will be proportionally reduced if you are found partially at-fault for causing a collision and you will be barred from collecting damages at all if you are found over 50 percent at fault.  

At Ken Fiedler Injury Law, we believe anyone dealing with a serious motor-vehicle accident in Denver or the surrounding areas deserves immediate access to experienced legal help. That’s why we offer free and confidential consultations to discuss your rights and set fees on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid based on a portion of damages we are successful in obtaining on your behalf. In other words, our representation costs you nothing, unless we win.  

Steps to Take After a Collision  

With all that said, here are a few steps you should take following a collision:  

  • Call emergency services: Even if you believe your injuries are minor, you should be examined by a medical professional.  
  • Call the police: A police report is an important part of any accident claim. And in many cases it is required by insurance companies.  
  • Take pictures of the scene: Don’t be stingy. Take lots of pictures from many different angles. Take pictures of the at-fault driver and witnesses if it can be done without notice or objection. Take pictures of license plates. Take pictures of insurance information provided by other parties.  
  • Speak with witnesses: Try to get the contact information of any witnesses.  
  • Exchange information with other drivers: You are required to provide basic information, such as insurance coverage. But avoid discussions of fault and don’t admit liability.  
  • Speak with police: Again, provide basic information. Be courteous and professional. But don’t admit fault.  
  • Contact an attorney: This is the point where we suggest you reach out to an experienced Denver car accident lawyer for help and guidance.  
  • Notify your insurance company: Your insurance company requires timely notice whenever you are involved in a collision. However, in many cases, this notice is best provided by your injury attorney for the reasons already discussed.  
  • Keep documentation: Keep all documentation, including costs of medical care, transportation, rental cars and other costs associated with the accident. We also suggest you keep a contact log of the name, phone number, date and reason for contacting anyone in connection with the collision.  

Why Hiring an Experienced Car Crash Accident Lawyer Is Important

Not even the nation’s largest insurance companies handle these cases alone. Each relies upon internal and external legal, medical and investigative professionals in a wide range of disciplines.
