Car Accident FAQ
When should you get a lawyer for a car accident?
The sooner, the better. At JBP, we do not charge by the hour, so you might as well maximize your benefit from our attorneys’ assistance and let them handle the insurance companies right out of the gate.
What should I do after a car accident?
Gather insurance information and clearly explain why the other driver was at fault to the police. If you are seriously injured, your first priority will be to get the medical attention you need. Then, call our office.
How do I maximize my car accident settlement?
Contact our office and let us guide you through the process. Don’t avoid medical treatment because you think the other driver should be paying for it. Use your health insurance to get the treatment you need. We can file a claim to try to make the other driver pay later.
Does health insurance cover car accident injuries?
Yes. You will want to use your own health insurance to cover your accident-related medical treatment.
Severe Injuries & Consequences of a Crash
Serious injuries that might be suffered in a car accident can include:
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord damage
It is crucial that you seek medical treatment as soon as possible after being in a car accident of any intensity. Crashes that occur at relatively low speeds are still capable of causing serious injuries that could go unnoticed for hours or days. If you have been in an accident and have not yet seen a medical professional for a check-up or diagnosis, then we encourage you to please arrange to be seen at an urgent care facility today.
By seeing a doctor soon after a crash, increasing the likelihood of an accurate diagnosis and affording yourself the best chance at a swift recovery. Beyond that, you are benefitting your future car accident claim by establishing, through medical records, what injuries you suffered, when you suffered them, and why. Without a medical record made the same or the next day after a traffic accident, the defending insurance company will have an easier time challenging the nature and causation of your injuries. The insurer might say that your injuries were preexisting and unrelated to the crash in an attempt to escape all liability.
Financial Damages, Costs & Expenses
A successful car accident claim can help you find a sense of closure and justice. Such a claim can also return you to financial stability by recovering much-needed costs and damages. Our Longmont car accident attorneys will work diligently to secure full compensation in your name.
We will want to collect compensation that helps pay for:
- Emergency medical care and surgeries
- Hospitalization and extended recovery periods
- Lost wages due to missing work
- Pain and suffering
Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) data from 2018 shows that there were more than 600 traffic fatalities in Colorado. Thousands more drivers and passengers suffered moderate to severe injuries in crashes as well. While the details of all of these crashes and those like them vary greatly, the common thread is that the liable parties can be held financially responsible for the harm caused thanks to Colorado’s comparative negligence law. Under this legal statute, any party that is more than 50% liable for a crash is liable to the others involved.
Our Longmont car accident lawyers will work to prove the liability of the driver who caused your injuries. We will investigate the events that occurred during the incident, the role of each driver, the injuries suffered by everyone involved, and any other contributing circumstances. We are committed to proving that you weren’t liable when the insurance company wrongly puts you at fault for some portion of your injuries.
Contingency Fees Make Starting a Claim Simple
To make beginning your personal injury claim less stressful for you, we are proud to offer contingency fee agreements. Under this agreement type, our Longmont car accident attorneys can work on your claim with no money down. We only get paid if we are able to resolve your claim successfully with a settlement or verdict that recovers compensation for you. It is a risk-free way for you to pursue damages without reaching for your pocketbook first.
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.
