Motor Vehicle Accident Claims
Motor vehicle accidents claim thousands of lives each year and injure hundreds of thousands more.
While it’s easy to think it won’t ever happen to you, motor vehicle accidents happen every day and involve even the safest, most unsuspecting drivers.
When someone else is responsible for another person’s injury, legal representation can help ensure victims are able to pay exhaustive medical bills and other expenses during the recovery process.
If you’ve been injured in Colorado Springs, let the trusted experts at Norton Frickey P.C. help you recover.
Even if you don’t think you can afford an attorney, give us a call.
We work on a contingent-fee basis, which means victims don’t pay anything unless we win their case.
Compensation Available to Victims
Without experienced representation, those most affected by a motor vehicle accident can struggle to make ends meet.
At Norton Frickey P.C., we help injured victims find their footing after a serious injury.
We have the experience and resources to tackle any motor vehicle crash, from motorcycle accidents to crashes involving large trucks, pedestrians, or cyclists.
Every crash is different, but our team’s dedication to your claim prioritizes your recovery above all else. While we handle the red tape and negotiations, victims and family members can focus on what really matters: recovery.
Our Colorado Springs law office can help you get the compensation you need to move on with life. This may include compensation for:
- Emergency services
- Medical bills
- Lost income or loss of earning potential
- Medical equipment (e.g. wheelchairs, respiratory equipment, etc.)
- Pain and suffering
- Non-Economic Damages
- Wrongful death
Panicked victims or family members may try to negotiate with an insurance adjuster on their own, but this rarely works out for the victim. In most cases, going it alone can reduce your compensation total.
For example, Colorado’s modified comparative fault laws allow victims to recover damages only if they’re not more to blame for the accident or injury.
However, determining who is liable can be highly subjective, especially in accidents involving multiple parties.
Say the wrong thing to an insurance adjuster and you could lose money you need to recover. Why take chances when you don’t have to?
Let Norton Frickey P.C. help you get the compensation you need to get back on track.
Important Information for Victims & Family Members
Regardless of how you feel after an accident, it’s always best to seek medical attention.
Following a crash, adrenaline can mask signs and symptoms of dangerous injuries such as traumatic head injury (TBI), neck and back issues, and so on.
Moreover, documentation of injuries is especially relevant in a personal injury case.
Victims should follow all medical direction including medication regimens, follow up appointments, or any other instructions provided by a physician.
Keep track of all related expenses. This may include travel expenses to and from the hospital, lost income, and other purchases that relate to the injury or recovery.
It may be helpful to organize a journal of these records as well as notes pertaining to the victims daily life.
Lastly, don’t hesitate to call an injury lawyer. Colorado’s statute of limitations sets time restrictions on when a lawsuit can be filled.
Vehicle accident claims, for example, must be filed within three years of the accident date.
If someone dies, family members have two years to file a wrongful death claim in Colorado.
