Why Do I Need a Lawyer After a Car Accident?
One of the most common misconceptions about filing a car accident claim is that you don’t need a lawyer to secure the compensation you deserve. Many victims of car wrecks attempt to handle their claim on their own, leaving them vulnerable to unfair insurance practices and risking a lower settlement than they deserve.
There are two primary reasons to hire an attorney to handle your car accident claim:
1. The insurance company is not on your side. The primary goal of insurance companies is to be profitable, which means minimizing injury claims to avoid paying large settlements. The insurance adjuster for your claim records every statement you make and can use this evidence against you at a later date. It’s important to discuss your case with a skilled car accident lawyer in Denver before even speaking with your insurance company, or as soon as possible if you feel you need legal representation. Most car accident victims that are represented by a lawyer recover two to three times more than those who handle their cases on their own.
2. Recovering the maximum amount of compensation possible. In cases of severe, life-altering injuries that require extensive medical treatment, the settlement from the insurance company may not be enough to cover your bills or the loss of quality of life. In Colorado, you can file a personal injury lawsuit for both bodily and property damage sustained in a motor vehicle accident with three years from the date the incident took place. Having an attorney on your side from the start can greatly increase your chances of obtaining maximum compensation.

- That does not include car wrecks that were not reported to police departments.
- 96% percent of those reported crashes involved a passenger vehicle.
43,917 vehicles were in fatal crashes & 21,253 passengers died in car accidents that year.
- Rural areas accounted for 62% of these fatalities.
- Of those rural fatalities, 54% were passengers who were not wearing their seatbelt.
In passenger car accidents, 77% of passengers who were ejected from their vehicles died.
- Seatbelts, when used, reduce the risk of fatal injury to front-seat passengers by 45% and the risk of moderate-to-critical injury by 50%.
