Teller County Car Accident Attorneys
Injured in a Car Crash?
The moment of impact in a car crash is usually the start of your troubles, not the end. You may need to trade insurance information or track down a driver who flees the scene. If anyone is injured, emergency medical services may be needed, and you will need to file an accident report with police. In severe accidents, permanent injuries or even death may result. At The Bussey Law Firm, P.C., our skilled car accident attorneys are dedicated to helping you deal with the aftermath of a crash - no matter how serious it is.
Teller County sees hundreds of car accidents each year. Over 400 people lose their lives in car accidents statewide each year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and thousands more are injured. Thousands of additional minor accidents leave no one hurt, but do cause property damage that can be costly to fix.
Costs Associated with Car Accident Injuries
Many Teller County residents who suffer car accidents each year are lucky enough to walk away with no injuries or only minor bumps and bruises. Others, however, suffer moderate or severe injuries that bring medical bills, hospital stays, physical therapy costs, and other bills. Losing time from work adds an additional financial burden.
Two of the most severe types of injuries, a traumatic brain injury and a spinal cord injury, are all too common in car crashes. An accident may also cause bone fractures that require surgery and physical therapy in order to heal. Burns may also occur if part of the vehicle catches fire. In a severe crash that causes parts of the vehicle to fold in on themselves, a person may also suffer a crush injury or amputation that permanently destroys part of his or her body.
The costs of these injuries can be astronomical - not just in terms of dollars, but also in the physical and emotional pain and suffering they cause. Seeking compensation in court after a car accident can help you and your family meet the financial burdens of an injury, giving you the space to focus on getting well again.
Common Car Accident Causes
Many different factors can cause a car accident, and a single accident might have more than one contributing cause. Because Colorado personal injury law requires you to prove another party's negligence caused your injuries, it's important to choose an experienced Teller County injury attorney who knows how to uncover the causes of a crash and determine what happened in those few, life-changing moments.
Some common causes of car crashes include:
- Driver distraction by cell phones or from other sources;
- Driver error, such as running a stop sign;
- Defective vehicle parts or improperly-performed vehicle maintenance;
- Negligence of parties outside the vehicle, like road workers; and
- Dangerous roadways or intersections.
Understanding the causes of an accident is key to seeking the compensation you need. At The Bussey Law Firm, P.C., we're dedicated to answering these questions.
