Northglenn Legal FAQs

 

Q: Should I call my insurance company right after my car accident?

A: If someone else caused your vehicle accident, feel free to call your insurance company from the scene if you feel that you are safe and in control of your emotions. Be sure to take any photos, talk to witnesses and get their contact details, and provide a full account of your version of events to YOUR insurance company.

You are under no obligation to speak to the other driver’s insurance company immediately following the accident, and we recommend that you don’t until you speak to an attorney that will represent you in this matter. The insurance companies are going to try to pay as little to you as possible, so be sure to only speak to them when you are confident about what happened and clear-headed. Often, just after an accident emotions are high and adrenaline is pumping. Don’t rush to talk to anyone except those who will be fighting for you.

 

Q: How do I know for sure I have a personal injury case?

A: If you’ve been injured in an accident you may have the right to financial compensation. There are a variety of factors that will determine if you are eligible to file a suit and how much you could be awarded. However, to file a personal injury lawsuit, the following must all apply:

  • Another person or entity is responsible for your accident due to their negligence:
  • You received a physical injury and/or loss of property and/or:
  • You have financial loss due to the accident (income, medical bills, property repair, etc.)

Our attorneys are happy to help determine if you have a case. It’s important to know that there is a statute of limitations to file your matter. Let us help protect your rights.

 

Q: I was hit by a distracted driver, what do I do and what are my rights?

A: Distracted driving is a leading cause of vehicle accidents in the United States. If a distracted driver has injured you in an accident, we recommend documenting as much of the scene as possible. Take pictures or video and talk to any witnesses and get their contact details.

It’s crucial to seek medical attention if you are hurt. If you feel pain or discomfort after the accident, even if it shows up days later, see your medical provider as soon as possible.

Next, talk to a personal injury attorney who is skilled at getting justice in vehicle accident cases. Our legal team offers a free consultation to those who are seeking legal help. You have the right to seek damages for your injury, bills, lost wages, and more.

Our team would like to hear your story and discuss your options so you are able to receive the proper care and compensation to help you through this difficult time and well into your future.

 

Q: When should I hire a personal injury lawyer?

A: The sooner the better. If insurance gets involved, you’ll be receiving calls from adjusters almost immediately after the accident occurs. They’ll be requesting statements and ask if they can record you. Those statements may end up hurting your case. Having an attorney advise you on these matters is a smart step to ensuring your rights are met.

You do NOT have to speak to any insurance company right away, and you do NOT have to sign anything that allows them access to your private information. Let us help you navigate through this challenging time.

 

Q: My car was hit by another car in a parking lot. Can I file a personal injury claim?

A: If your property was damaged due to another’s recklessness, you should speak to a personal injury attorney to learn your options. We’ve helped many auto accident clients who were parked in their car, or driving respectably in a parking lot and sustained injuries because of another driver’s negligence. These cases vary, so we recommend coming in for your free consultation so we can discuss your personal claim.
