Auto collisions and the injuries that result occur in a flash. The average car accident from start to finish only lasts a few seconds – but the effects from this split-second incident can impact your life for years, if not a lifetime.
Your immediate priority following a car accident of course is the medical attention of you, your passengers and anyone else involved in the collision.
The longer term financial costs of coping with your injuries, while almost equally as vital, is often times the last thing on your mind
Like in other states, Colorado law sets limits on how long you can file a claim for any injuries and property damage stemming from a car accident. But with the traumatic effects of the accident and the disruptions it’s causing your life already, it can be difficult, even downright impossible to handle the legal requirements for obtaining compensation from an at-fault driver or your own insurance company.
Denver car accident attorney R. Mack Babcock possesses a diverse legal background in helping accident victims obtain justice. Some of the most common types of car accidents we see include:
Rear-end collisions – perhaps the most common type of car accident we see. Rear-end collisions can result in many injuries requiring years of treatment
Side-impact collisions – another common accident that involves the side of the vehicle. Often referred to as a “t-bone,” a side-impact can either be the front of one vehicle hitting the side of another or one car moving into the lane of another
Head-on collisions – occur when the front-end of two vehicles collide. These collisions often occur at high speeds and are some of the most fatal auto accidents
Multi-vehicle collisions – more common on busy highways, especially in the Denver area. These car accidents involve 3+ vehicles and are commonly referred to as “pile-ups”
Of course accidents of this nature don’t always have to involve two cars. Truck accidents, especially if you’re in a collision with a much larger vehicle, can be especially damaging. Pedestrian accidents, or when a car hits someone walking or riding a bike, also occur regularly and often result in devastating injuries, even death in some cases.
And of course, that’s not even taking into account car accidents caused by drunk driving , which sadly occur all too often.
Regardless of the kind of accident and the other vehicle(s), they too often bring untold costs in terms of medical treatment, property damage, lost wages and more. Even more daunting though is the disruption a car accident can bring your life.
No matter the situation, we want you to feel comfortable contacting our Denver car accident firm to discuss your legal options.
Don’t delay and bear the cost of a car accident caused by another driver.
