Denver Car Accident Lawyer
Someone in the U.S. is killed in a traffic accident every 12 minutes and a car accident happens every 10 seconds, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Thousands of individuals were seriously injured in car crashes throughout Colorado in the last few years. Anyone who has driven in the front range of the Denver metro area has noticed an increase in the amount of traffic on the streets and highways.
If you have been injured in a car accident, truck crash, SUV rollover, or motorcycle accident, please contact a Colorado injury attorney at The Frickey Law Firm for sound legal advice and effective representation. We will deal with the insurance companies and help you recover financially from an automobile wreck so you can focus on healing physically and emotionally.
Maximizing Your Financial Recovery in Motor Vehicle Accidents Throughout Colorado
Please do not speak to an insurance adjuster without first consulting one of our experienced Denver Auto Accident lawyers. The insurance company's goal is to pay you as little as possible for your injuries, medical expenses and property damages. Our goal is to see that you receive fair compensation for the full extent of your loss.
A car accident can cause serious injuries that need immediate medical attention as well as those that take days or weeks to appear. If you tell an insurance adjuster you feel fine and accept a quick settlement offer before speaking with a Denver auto accident attorney, you will not be able to recover damages for crash-related symptoms that may appear later. This is especially true in cases involving concussions, and neck and back injuries.
Our motor vehicle accident attorneys have protected the rights of people injured in car accidents for nearly 50 years. We have won millions of dollars in financial compensation and represented thousands of car wreck victims. We are experienced in going up against the big insurance companies and winning.
What to Do After a Motor Vehicle Accident
If you are in an accident, even a minor accident, stop and provide the other driver with:
- Your name
- Telephone number
- Insurance information
You should call the police, but in the Denver metro area, the police may not respond unless the vehicles are disabled or someone is injured. If this is the case, you will need to file a counter report at the appropriate police department within 24 hours of the accident.
Immediately contact your insurance company to report the accident. Document damage to your car, and if necessary, see a doctor to document your injuries. If there are witnesses to the accident, be sure to write down names and telephone numbers.
Because of a 2003 change to Colorado law, you will be responsible for paying for your medical treatment and later recovering from the person who caused the accident unless you have purchased medical coverage from your automobile insurance company.
The person who caused the accident will be represented by an insurance company lawyer. You should have an experienced attorney too. At our law firm, we can help you with all types of car accident issues, including:
- Pedestrian accidents

Staying Up to Date on Cellphone and Texting Laws
Studies have shown that driving and using cellphones is a distraction that causes accidents. Because of this, laws regarding cellphone usage and driving have changed frequently over the past few years. If you are going to use a cellphone while driving, never text and be sure to use a hands-free device if you have to talk.
