Frequently Asked Questions About Motor Vehicle Accidents
We know how overwhelming it is to face a legal process you aren’t familiar with. We are here to answer your questions and learn more about your case. In the meantime, below are some answers to frequently asked questions about motor vehicle accidents.
What types of damages can I recover?
In personal injury claims, including those for motor vehicle accidents, you may be able to recover economic and noneconomic damages. Economic damages include tangible financial losses, such as medical bills and lost income. Noneconomic damages include pain and suffering, mental anguish and loss of enjoyment in life. The types of damages you can recover depend on the circumstances of your case. We will get to know you and your situation to determine what kind of damages to pursue.
Who is responsible for my medical bills if I am not to blame in the accident?
Accident victims in Colorado can file claims with the at-fault driver’s insurance provider. Insurance companies will always take action to limit compensation to save themselves money. Even if the insurance company offers you a settlement, it may be significantly lower than what you deserve.
What happens if I am partially to blame for the accident?
Under Colorado law, a victim may recover compensation even if they are responsible for the accident in some capacity. The court will often intervene if an agreement cannot be reached with the other party in negotiations. Judges will then determine the modified comparative negligence and determine how much the victim is entitled to receive from the other party.
