Denver, CO Auto Injury Lawyer
According to the CDC, over 30 million people are injured annually in an unintentional incident, also known as negligence, and over 2.5 million are injured in traffic collisions. An alarming 41,000 of these are fatal. With every new vehicle safety feature approved for production comes another new method of travel, such as ride-share and micro-mobility – like scooters, motorized skateboards, and always-evolving bikes. The prevalence of car wrecks is not decreasing, it’s simply changing.

What To Do If You’ve Been Involved in an Auto Injury:
As common as car wrecks are, there is a massive void of information about what you should do when it happens. Here are a few highlights:
- ALWAYS collect information from every single person involved, even if you think it was no big deal. That may change down the road, and you want to be prepared.
- TAKE PHOTOS OF ALL VEHICLES INVOLVED.
- If you feel any pain at all, GET MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY. Many serious injuries are not immediately apparent due to massive levels of adrenaline pulsing through the body. Make sure you take care of yourself by getting checked out no matter what.
- DO NOT SPEAK TO AN INSURANCE COMPANY about anything other than the damage to your vehicle, INCLUDING YOUR OWN INSURANCE COMPANY. ALL insurance companies are already building a case against you from the minute the wreck happened. If you tell them your initial physical injuries and those injuries increase or change later, you have just given the insurance company a recorded statement they can use against you later.
- HIRE A LAWYER! This may seem self-serving coming from a law firm. However, in reality, it’s you it protects! The insurance company is already building a case against you. They are collecting scene evidence, witness statements, videos, crash data, and so much more. You should have someone doing the same. These things quickly disappear, and you do not want to rely on the insurance company to turn over the evidence you need to fight against them!
