At Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C., we know car accidents are rarely “accidents” in every sense of the word. Instead, the negligence or recklessness of another motorist can be found at the center of a collision, which means the crash should have never happened in the first place had the liable party been more careful. Our passion as a team of Broomfield car accident lawyers is to make certain that injured motorists are capable of getting the compensation they deserve after being in a wreck that someone else caused.
For decades, we have been going head-to-head with auto insurance companies, so our clients don’t have to. Thanks to our insight and skill, we can anticipate insurance company tactics that are commonly used to lessen the damages paid to claimants. At every step they take against you, we will be ready and waiting to counter it in pursuit of the best possible outcome for you.
Please contact our Broomfield law office today to discuss your car accident case.

When should you get a lawyer for a car accident?
We recommend hiring our attorneys immediately after a car accident because it costs you nothing extra to hire us sooner than later. We aren’t paid by the hour!
What should I do after a car accident?
Call 911 if anyone is seriously injured and needs medical attention. Next, get as much information as you can from the other driver, as well as photographs of the scene. Lastly, call our office in Broomfield to let us know what happened.
How do I maximize my car accident settlement?
You can’t guarantee that a car accident settlement value will go up, but you can take steps to fight for as much as you can possibly secure. Start by hiring our lawyers and by seeking medical attention. Don’t let your injuries get worse by refusing medical care.

Important Car Accident Statistics
There are millions of car accidents across the country each year, resulting in millions of serious injuries. 2018 crash statistics – as examined by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) – approximately 33,650 people died in auto accidents that year. That number has steadily climbed across the last decade. In the same year, there were more than 630 traffic fatalities in Colorado alone.
What is Causing So Many Car Accidents?
With serious car accidents on the rise, the question must be asked: “What is the average crash caused by?” The answers are as concerning as they are varied. With the increasing popularity of smartphones, it has been assumed by numerous safety groups that there is an increased amount of driver distraction. There have also been concerns about the legalization of recreational marijuana contributing to more crashes involving impaired drivers. Colorado legalized recreational marijuana in 2012, and there has already been some evidence to suggest that the legislation has contributed to a measurable uptick in crashes statewide.
Car accidents can be caused by:
- Distracted driving
- Defective auto parts
- Reckless driving and speeding
- Intoxicated or drug-impaired driving
- Running red lights and breaking other traffic rules
- Teenage driving without proper supervision
Damages in Car Accident Claims
Regardless of why another driver crashed into you while driving through Broomfield, there remains the truth that you should have the option to demand compensation from them and their insurer. Colorado allows you to seek both noneconomic and economic damages from the liable party after a crash. Noneconomic damages are related to your pain and suffering, as well as other abstract hardships that cannot be easily recorded on a bill or receipt. Economic damages are related to tangible costs and expenses experienced due to your injuries.
A few common damages sought in car accident claims include:
- Past, current, and future medical treatment costs
- Vehicle repair costs in a vehicle damage claim
- Lost or missing wages
- Pain, suffering, and PTSD damages
It will be our goal as your Broomfield car accident attorneys to calculate your damages with utmost accuracy. We will consider all sorts of damages, so we can ensure that you are given as much compensation as possible. In some cases, it is possible to file against more than one insurance policy held by the liable driver, which is useful when pursuing a damage amount greater than their auto insurance policy’s damage cap. Importantly, you won’t have to navigate these complexities alone, not when you let our team represent you.
