Car accidents are extremely common in America, and are a leading cause of injury and death. You may think that you can handle the aftermath of an auto accident on your own, but in reality it's a good idea to hire an attorney to be your advocate in order to ensure the best possible outcome.
Without an attorney, you may end up settling for a lot less than you deserve from your insurance company, and if the other party in your crash was uninsured, you may end up with nothing but expensive medical bills and car repairs.
Compensation and Punitive Damages Following a Car Accident
Your insurance company is not on your side. Insurance companies are in the business of making money, and they don't want to pay out any more than the bare minimum. Christopher Jeffress started his law career as an insurance lawyer, and understands the tactics these companies use in order to devalue your claim and pay as little as possible.
Mr. Jeffress will fight for you to receive maximum compensation, including:
- Cost of medical treatment, including both short and long term care if necessary
- Loss of income due to being unable to work
- Pain and suffering
- Vehicle repairs
- Punitive damages
What Should You Do After a Car Accident?
Following an auto accident in Colorado, there are steps you should take so that your case goes as smoothly as possible. These include:
- Call the police
- Exchange information with all parties involved
- Take pictures
- Get medical treatment
- Call Jeffress Law
Most importantly, do not admit fault to anyone. There are a number of factors that can contribute to a car accident, and you should have an experienced lawyer review all the facts before admitting fault to the police or your insurance.
In addition, even if you do not think you need medical attention, you should still see a doctor following a car crash. Some injuries can take days or weeks to show symptoms, so it's important for a doctor to look you over as soon as possible.
