Helping Victims Get Back on Their Feet & on the Road
Were you involved in a car accident? Did the accident cause you to suffer catastrophic injuries? If so, you may be entitled to significant financial compensation to help pay for your extensive medical bills, rehabilitative care, and other expenses. Unfortunately, many insurance companies will do whatever they can to avoid paying claims, even when they are valid. If you have been denied compensation after a car accident, our Denver car accident lawyers can help.

What to Do After a Car Accident
After a car accident, there are certain things you should do to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve. These include:
Calling the police to file a report
Seeking medical attention
Filing an insurance claim
Seeking legal counsel
In many cases, insurance companies will attempt to deny a claim because they claim that the claimant is at least partially responsible for causing the accident. This is known as a "fault" or "comparative negligence" claim. In such cases, it is important to have legal counsel to fight on your behalf.
How Comparative Negligence Works in Colorado
You can recover damages if you can prove that you were catastrophically injured due to someone else's negligence. However, the state uses a "modified comparative negligence" system that allows juries to assign percentages of fault to multiple parties. As a result, juries may assign different percentages of fault to different parties, depending on the unique facts of each case. In such cases, juries will assign a percentage of fault to each party and then use those percentages to calculate a percentage of total damages that each party is responsible for paying.
For example, if a jury found that you were 25% at fault for causing an accident, they would reduce your total damages by 25%. If the jury found that you were 50% at fault, they would reduce your total damages by 50%. In cases where you are more than 50% at fault, you will not be able to recover any damages.
