What Should I Do If I've Been in a Car Accident?

As soon as you're in a car accident, it's important to take steps to protect your health and rights. Here's how:

  • Get medical help. If you or anyone at the scene is seriously injured, call 911. Even if your injuries appear to be minor or you're not sure you've suffered any injury, get a medical evaluation as soon as possible. You may have serious injuries that aren't presenting symptoms and you want medical treatment and documentation of your injuries as soon as you can.
  • Report the accident. Report the accident to the police or highway patrol, as soon as possible. Also contact your insurer to report the crash. If you suspect the other driver was drunk or doing something illegal, call 911 to secure evidence.
  • Secure evidence. If you can, take pictures of the accident scene, any injuries, any vehicles involved in the accident, and the surrounding area. Take note of any security cameras. Write down any details you remember and get contact information of any potential witnesses.
  • Contact a Colorado car accident claims attorney. Don't wait on this. Your attorney can talk to insurers for you and start taking immediate steps to protect your rights.
Filing a Colorado Car Accident Claim

You can file a claim in Colorado against the other driver or against a car manufacturer or against any liable party who caused your injuries. You must file within three years or lose the right to compensation. However, filing as soon as you can may be important to secure evidence in your case and to ensure that you receive fair compensation for your damages.

If you've been injured in a car accident due to negligence you may be able to seek compensation for:

  • Lost wages, including lost income due to missed work and reduced earning capacity.
  • Medical expenses, including surgery and hospital costs, visits to the doctor, rehabilitation, medication, and other costs.
  • Pain and suffering.
  • Property damage, including damage to your vehicle and any property inside the car.
