Each insurance policy is different, and the coverage can depend on the nature of the accident, but there are a few different areas that most insurance policies will cover. You can often expect compensation for lost income, property damage, physical therapy, pain and suffering, and child care costs.
Personal injury attorneys only work on a contingency fee basis. This means that your personal injury lawyer only collects payment if they earn compensation for you. They only collect their payment from the compensation, so you will not experience out-of-pocket costs during your compensation claim.
Colorado uses contributory negligence to determine compensation for car accidents. This policy means that you can still receive compensation as long as you are not 51% or more responsible for your accident. However, the more liable you are, the smaller your compensation may be.
Colorado allows for up to three years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim. While you have that much time to file your claim, your medical bills, and other expenses will likely not wait that long. You should be sure to act fast to earn the compensation you need to cover your accident costs.
