How Do I Prove Fault in a Collision in Colorado Springs?
If your injury claim is disputed, you must be able to provide evidence that supports your side of the story. An attorney can help you gather the following evidence to help you prove liability and ultimately your claim:
- Police and medical reports
- Eyewitness accounts
- Testimony from accident reconstruction specialists and other professionals
- Photos of the accident site, damage to vehicles, and injuries
- Traffic camera footage
You and your attorney may also invoke your state's traffic laws in order to establish that wrongdoing was committed on the part of the other party. This is especially important in cases where the circumstances aren't readily apparent at the crash site.
How Do I Deal with Insurance Companies After a Car Crash?
Keep in mind that insurance companies, like any other business, have a profit motive. They're not there to serve you, despite what they may say, but to serve their bottom line. It is best if you do not place a modicum of trust in the insurance adjuster. In fact, you should not speak to the adjuster without consulting your attorney first. You should also not sign anything without your attorney's approval. An adjuster will look for anything to use to deny your claim, including your own words.
The point needs to be emphasized: it is absolutely vital that you speak with a Colorado Springs personal injury attorney before dealing with the insurance company.
What are the Common Causes of Car Accidents?
People in today's fast moving world tend to believe that they can multitask without a hitch, even while driving. However, the fact is our brain is not able to process multiple tasks at once with equal efficiency. In other words, we lose our ability to achieve a task at full capability when we take on other tasks at the same time. This is why multitasking can be quite dangerous when applied to driving.
Some popular forms of distracted driving behavior include:
- Talking or texting
- Changing the radio
- Engaging fully in conversation with passengers
- Putting on makeup
It is also dangerous to drive while fatigued, drunk, or otherwise impaired. Some of these behaviors are even outlawed and can bring about devastating legal consequences.
Not all auto accidents are attributed to driver error. Some crashes occur due to forces outside of the driver's control. Dangerous road conditions or defective auto parts can and often contribute to collisions. In these cases, a government entity or auto manufacturer may be held liable for damages.
