What Boulder Accident Lawyers Can Do For You

Act as Your Advocate

One of the most important duties Boulder auto accident lawyers have is to serve as your advocate. This means that your lawyer will act on your behalf throughout the claims process, whether that means negotiating with insurance companies or arguing your case in court. The lawyer’s role is to make sure that your voice is heard, and that you receive proper compensation for your injuries or losses.

Help Determine What Your Claim is Worth

If you’ve been injured in an accident, you may have no idea what your claim is truly worth. Unfortunately, you can’t trust the insurance companies to tell you the truth, and that’s where the auto accident lawyer comes in. Remember, insurance companies make their money by paying you as little as possible, so you need someone who is highly knowledgeable about how the convoluted industry works.

Inform You of State-Specific Laws and Information

Each state has its own set of laws that pertain to auto accidents, and Boulder auto accident lawyers will be well versed in laws specific to Colorado. For example, if your accident was a while ago and you’re not sure if you can still file a personal injury claim against the driver at fault, your attorney can let you know that Colorado’s statute of limitations law gives you three years from the date of the accident to file that claim. In many states, the statute of limitations is only two years.

Whatever your reason for seeking an auto accident attorney, having an articulate, focused and experienced legal professional on your side is critical in obtaining a fair resolution in your case. Call 303-447-1144 today to schedule a free consultation with an experienced auto accident lawyer at Sloat & Nicholson, P.C.
