Denver Auto Accident Attorney

There is a Colorado auto accident every 19 minutes. In fact, there are 27,187 auto accidents each year in Colorado. Considering there are 75 auto accidents a day in and around Denver Colorado, you can be sure the insurance companies are busy denying many valid claims by auto accident victims. If you an auto accident victim, you may be entitled to immediate and ongoing medical care, repayment for lost wages, and financial compensation for your injures, pain, and property damage. You may be entitled to financial compensation, whether it be from the party who was at fault, or through your own insurance provider.

Financial Consequences of an Auto Accident

Whether you were involved in a simple fender bender or seriously injured in an auto accident caused by a drunk driver, some of the financial hardships can include the following:

Property Damage – Includes damage done to your vehicle and its contents.

Medical Bills – Includes immediate medical bills resulting from the accident and ongoing expenses, such as physical therapy, chiropractic therapy and psychiatric therapy.

Lost Wages – Includes all hours, days, weeks, or months you you miss from work because of the accident.

Pain and Suffering – Includes physical pain that you suffer during and after the accident and chronic, on-going pain that lingers long after the accident.

CO Financial Responsibility Law — Minimum Motor Vehicle Insurance

As a skilled Denver auto accident lawyer, Thomas R. Lefly is keenly aware that the Colorado Motor Vehicle Financial Responsibility Law requires all drivers to carry liability insurance to cover:

  • $25,000 per person for bodily injury.
  • $50,000 per accident for bodily injury.
  • $15,000 per accident for property damage.

These minimum legal requirements often fall far short when one is in a serious car accident where the costs incurred by the injured party will likely be much higher.

As a Denver auto accident lawyer who has been fighting for clients for years and years, I am aware that IN SPITE of the Colorado Financial Responsibility Law, almost 15 percent of Colorado drivers on the road may not be carrying ANY auto insurance. A far larger percentage do not carry sufficient coverage for a significant injury auto accident. For this reason, it is prudent and wise to carry uninsured motorist [UM] or under-insured motorist [UIM] coverage. By having UM/UIM coverage, your insurance company will cover you in the event you are hit by an uninsured driver or one whose policy limits fail to cover your damages incurred in an accident.

Insurance Companies are “For Profit” Corporations — Theirs!
Claimants Take a Back Seat…

Auto accident victims might assume that their insurance company or the insurance company of the person or persons responsible for their accident will fairly take care of any claim, but the truth is that most insurance companies business model it to make profit which includes the unstated practice of paying out the lowest amount possible. Challenging these billion-dollar companies on your own will is a losing battle. Skilled auto accident lawyers who can wield the valid threat of a messy jury trial are about the only leverage that auto accident victims have at their disposal to negotiate a fair and comprehensive financial settlement.
