When the family complained about the settlement, the attorneys representing the woman at the time stated that if she did not agree to take the settlement, the settlement would be enforced by the Court and she would lose.

Let us help you answer the tough questions you may have about your case. If you don't find what you're looking for you can ask your question here any time.
Typically, a personal injury accident case will go to trial when a settlement agreement cannot be reached outside of courts. If the defendant in the personal injury case is refusing to offer a settlement that accurately reflects the extent of damages, then a trial might be the only option to secure maximum financial compensation.
The best way to know whether or not you should accept a personal injury settlement is to consult with an accident lawyer you trust. Insurance companies try to get claimants to settle quickly before they know how much they actually could get for their accident. Consider having your personal injury case evaluated by a Denver accident attorney from our law firm.
Anderson, Hemmat & McQuinn operates on a contingency fee basis. This is a "no recovery, no fee" guarantee which basically states that you do not owe us attorney fees until we obtain a verdict or settlement for you. To learn more about payment options, please call our experienced accident attorneys directly.
While it is not mandatory that you have legal representation for a personal injury case, it can be extremely beneficial. Many people are cut short of the financial compensation because they were not aware of how much they actually deserved for their extensive accident.
Many people do not go to the hospital after car accidents either because they think they are not injured or they fear they will have to pay out of pocket for the visit. Truthfully, many car accident injuries can go undetected and may not begin to bother the victim until days or even weeks after the accident. As a precaution, anyone involved in a moderate to serious car accident should go to the hospital for a physical evaluation. Most likely, this visit will be covered by insurance. Just be sure to keep record of the visit and the payment for the visit.
It can be difficult for a driver to know how much they're entitled to after a car accident. Many drivers accept the insurance company's first settlement offer because they trust that it's fair and will be enough to cover all accident-related expenses. This is not always the case. We encourage drivers to consult with a car accident attorney after a collision for a second opinion on how much your claim is worth. More often than not, insurance companies offer claimants far less than they actually deserve.
Colorado has comparative/contributory negligence laws. This means that even drivers who are partially at fault for accidents can recover compensation from insurance. However, this does not apply to drivers who are more than 50 percent at fault for the collision. For example, if the insurance adjusters decided that you were 20 percent at-fault and the other driver was 80 percent at-fault, then you could collect up to 80 percent from the other driver's insurance.
