What should I do immediately after a car accident?
First, check to make sure you and your passengers are okay. Then, if it is safe to do so, check on the other driver and their passengers. If anyone is injured, call 911.
When police arrive, they will fill out an accident report. You’ll want to obtain a copy of their report, which is valuable in a personal injury claim.
Refrain from talking to the other driver or their insurance company. You might inadvertently say something that could be used against you. Only exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver.
If there are witnesses, try to get their contact information. They may be able to help your claim by corroborating your story. Take videos and or photos of the accident scene as well.
Finally, contact Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. to talk to a personal injury lawyer who can advise you about your legal right to compensation.
How can a personal injury lawyer prove liability in a car accident?
Your lawyer will gather and present evidence such as police reports, witness statements, photographs or videos of the accident scene, expert opinions, and any applicable traffic laws or regulations. They will use the evidence to demonstrate that the other party was negligent or at fault for the accident, showing a direct link between their actions and the injuries or damages suffered by you.
What types of compensation can I seek for my car accident injuries?
Common examples of compensable damages include your medical bills, lost wages, physical and mental pain and suffering, inconvenience, emotional stress, physical impairment, and disfigurement. But remember the old adage: “If you are your own lawyer, you have a fool for a client.” Don’t go it alone. One of our Colorado injury lawyers would be happy to help evaluate the circumstances of your case and guide you through the legal process.
How long do I have to file a lawsuit after a car accident?
You only have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit following a car crash—as little as three years. And before you can file, there is preparatory work your attorney will need to complete. Contact Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. as soon as possible following your crash.
What if the other driver doesn't have insurance or is underinsured?
You may have options to seek compensation through your own insurance policy. For example, uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage can help cover your damages. Some people are reluctant to make claims against their own insurance policies. But rest assured, making an uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage claim will not result in any increased premiums. Your insurance company is prohibited from raising your rates based on an uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage claim. Consult with a personal injury attorney at Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. for the guidance you need to navigate this situation and pursue appropriate compensation.
Does health insurance cover car accident injuries?
Your health insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid will likely cover medical costs associated with your car accident. Your auto insurance may also have medical payment coverage. Depending on the type of health insurance, you may have an obligation to pay back some or all of the medical payments it makes on your behalf for accident-related treatment. Your personal injury attorney at Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. will help negotiate that repayment amount down to the maximum extent permitted by Colorado law to maximize your net recovery.
I would like to give a big thank you to Matthew Crowther and his paralegal, Nicolas Allen, for doing a great job on my case. They settled for more than I expected and were always available when I had questions. I would highly recommend them and would go back to them if needed. Thank you again.
