When a person takes to Denver roads there is always the risk that they will be involved in an automobile accident. Whether that accident is minor, such as a fender bender, or a severe head-on collision, you are entitled to financial compensation whenever another driver's negligence is the cause of the accident. Knowing when and how these accidents often occur is helpful in not only avoiding these types of accidents, but it is also helpful when they inevitably occur despite your best efforts.
1. Stop Signs and Stoplights
One of the most frequently noted areas for car accidents occurs at stop signs and stoplights at intersections. This typically occurs because one driver fails to follow the rules of the road, such as stopping at the stop sign or running a red light. When a person fails to follow these rules, dangerous high-speed collisions between automobiles can occur as a result.
2. Parking Lots
Parking lot accidents occur constantly and with varying degrees of personal harm and property damage. While most parking lot accidents don't tend to be as severe due to the typically low speeds of the accident, the issues dealing with proving who was negligent and whose insurance should pay is often a major pain. Without the right legal help, you could be forced to eat the costs of the damage to your vehicle and your injuries, even when the other driver was responsible for the accident.
3. Two-Lane Roads and Highways
A two-lane road can be incredibly dangerous because of the potential for head-on collisions. Head-on collisions often occur at high speeds, but even moderate speeds when coming at each other head-on can easily result in serious injury or even death. Without any divider besides a double yellow line, there is little protection for Denver drivers. With the right attorney at your side, you can get the compensation you need to move forward with your life.
4. Pedestrian Areas
Areas in which a great many pedestrians are walking can be incredibly dangerous, both for drivers and pedestrians. Pedestrians hurt or killed by a negligent driver have the right to financial compensation for their injuries. When a driver is injured because of a pedestrian's negligence in causing the accident, they are also entitled to compensation.
Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
Filing and winning a personal injury claim takes a lot of experience and know-how. Not only must you know the rules of court, evidence, and the law, you must also understand how to find expert evidence of the cause of the accident and be able to prove complex medical injury evidence in court. Attempting to do this on your own, or with an inexperienced attorney, could result in losing out on the opportunity to be compensated for your injuries.
