When Do You Need a Boulder Accident Attorney

Auto accidents are an unfortunate fact of life for about 98% of U.S. residents, who will at some point in their lives be involved in one. They range in severity from simple fender benders to multi-car pileups with fatalities. It is  advantageous for you to find an accident attorney in Boulder who can represent you whether or not the accident was your fault. A few of the more common circumstances where you might need legal representation for accidents include:

  • Pursuing claims against the other party
  • Defending yourself from a civil suit
  • Dealing with insurance companies.

PURSUING CLAIMS

If you believe you are owed financial compensation from another party involved in the accident, you will need an accident attorney in Boulder who knows the ins and outs of the law as it pertains to your case. The defendant in your case will absolutely have a lawyer, making it imperative you have someone on your side who can handle the paperwork, filings, and evidence gathering that needs to be done to successfully pursue your claim.

MOUNTING A STRONG DEFENSE

In cases where you may have been at-fault, you may have to defend yourself from claims brought up by other parties against you. Trying to defend yourself in this type of situation is generally a  bad idea, especially when a knowledgeable attorney can more than pay for themselves by reducing the amount of money you owe, or winning the case outright.

INSURANCE COMPLICATIONS

Whether or not you were at-fault for the accident, there is a good chance an insurance company will try to pay out less than they owe. Another party’s insurance company may try suing you for the damages they had to pay to their customer, or your own insurance company may try to refuse your claim, even if the accident was clearly not your fault. Getting legal representation usually shows these companies that you do not intend to take their actions lying down and it often leads them to settling with you.
