The experienced Denver car accident attorneys at Malman Law Firm have successfully represented thousands of car accident victims throughout the State of Colorado. Continuing changes in the auto insurance industry make it a difficult system to navigate for the average person. Usually, while you are still receiving initial treatment for your injuries, the parties at fault have already notified their insurance company of the accident. Every insurance company has a team of adjusters, investigators and attorneys whose sole responsibility is to limit the liability (i.e. exposure) of the insurance company and minimize the amount of money they pay out.
Insurance companies will do everything they can to settle claims with unrepresented people quickly and cheaply. They will not honestly or voluntarily tell you the value of your claim. The insurance adjuster’s sole objective is to settle your claim for as little as possible. They do not have your best interests in mind. This is why it is imperative to retain an experienced Denver car accident attorney to guide you through the system and help you obtain maximum compensation for your injuries. With over 40 years of experience and a history of substantial verdicts and settlements, Malman Law Firm will level the playing field against large insurance companies.
What should I do after a car accident?
As soon as possible after the auto accident, you should photograph any visible injuries (i.e. cuts, bruises, broken bones, etc.). Before repairing your car, photograph the damage from all angles. Provide your attorneys with the prints (and negatives) of all photographs pertaining to your claim.
Consult an auto accident attorney to determine who is responsible for payment of your medical bills. Your medical bills could be processed through the other driver’s insurance company, your auto insurance policy, or through your group health insurance. Be aware that most health insurance policies require reimbursement of any medical expenses they paid upon settlement of your claim.
Keep accurate records of your lost time and wages from work as a result of your auto accident. This information will assist your attorney in determining the value of your claim.
Before you repair the damage to your car, contact your personal injury attorney. Generally, your insurance company will pay to have your car repaired or pay you the value of the vehicle if it is a total loss. If it is determined that you are not at fault for the accident, your insurance company will seek reimbursement for medical bills from the driver at fault. Your attorney will explain the best way to have your car replaced or your total loss adjusted.
Who will pay for my medical bills if I'm in an accident?
If you have auto insurance, you likely have medical payments coverage (“Med Pay”) of at least $5,000.00. You can also submit your bills to your health insurance carrier. However, if you do not have Med Pay or health insurance, we can help you find medical providers that will provide services on a “lien”. On a lien, you can treat and work on healing while we work on getting you’re the compensation you deserve. You will then pay off your medical bills at the end of your case from your settlement or jury verdict.
How do car accident cases work?
Our experienced Denver car accident attorneys will assist you in filing an auto accident claim against the insurance company of the parties at fault. If they lack sufficient insurance to pay for your bills and injuries, our attorneys will look to any other available coverage, including possibly tapping into coverage from your own insurance company. In some, but not all cases, it may be necessary to file an auto accident lawsuit to protect your legal rights. A lawsuit for the car accident and any claim for damages should be pursued against all available people/corporations to ensure that you receive the maximum for your injuries as well as any other losses you have suffered.
Our car accident lawyers can help you obtain compensation for:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Past and future loss of income
- Past and future medical expenses
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Disfigurement / ScarringPhysical / Mental impairment
- Funeral expenses (wrongful death)
- Punitive damages (if applicable)
If you have been injured due to the carelessness, negligence, or irresponsible behavior of another individual or organization, you probably have a valid accident injury claim. Most victims suffer some kind of loss (in the form of medical expenses, loss of income, physical, emotional, or other trauma). Our legal system permits only a limited time frame for when an injured victim can pursue such a claim. If you have been involved in an auto accident, call or email Malman Law Firm now.
