The days spanning from just before Christmas to right after New Year’s generally see more road traffic, and with it an increase in the chances of a motor vehicle accident.
Snow storms in and around Colorado Springs have been adding to travel difficulties throughout the holiday season. For instance, a recent article from the Colorado Springs Gazette mentions collisions involving law enforcement officials in the Pikes Peak area, leading to minor injuries.
If you suffered an accident during this wintry, travel-intensive time, don’t hesitate to seek assistance from Colorado Springs personal injury lawyers. Your attorney can help you with a range of issues, including the following:
- If you were traveling in a rented car or borrowing another person’s car, what types of insurance would help cover some of your damages? You might not know, or the insurance companies might refuse to help you.
- What’s the magnitude of the property damage? Keep in mind that this could include items such as luggage and relatively expensive gifts, souvenirs, or electronics you might have been carrying with you.
- How much of a role did bad weather play in the crash? Even in the midst of a snowstorm, human error or irresponsibility could have played a significant role. Drivers might have sped, forgotten to turn their headlights on, or trailed too closely behind other vehicles.
Your accident might have left you with a variety of bills, from the money you owe a hospital to the amount you’ll have to pay to get your car repaired. When you contact us, we will help you explore different options for compensation. It’s bad enough to suffer a car accident – especially in a celebratory time of year; it’s even worse if you have to struggle with the costs on your own afterwards.
