Understanding Punitive Damages in a Personal Injury Claim
Rollover auto accidents can be extremely dangerous and cause catastrophic injuries for those involved in them. They often leave your vehicle mangled beyond repair, and drivers and passengers severely injured too. These types of accidents can be caused by a variety of reasons, some of them being:
When you have a tire that may have been defective, the tread can separate, causing a sudden blow out which could result in your vehicle losing control and rolling over. Many SUVs and vans have a high center of gravity or a short wheelbase, causing them to be somewhat unstable in certain situations which also cause them to unexpectedly rollover. A side impact by another vehicle at certain speeds can unbalance a vehicle enough to cause it to rollover as well. Sometimes, even a problem with a part, or the overall structure of a vehicle can cause a rollover accident. Whatever the cause, the results can be terrifying and incredibly costly to you.
When involved in a rollover accident, contact a Denver car accident attorney who can evaluate the facts of the accident and determine who the negligent party may be. There may be several circumstances that make the accident events difficult to navigate, such as defective parts, multiple involved vehicles and insurance companies, and severe injuries that leave you unable to handle things on your own. You also may not understand how the process works, and which steps are the most important to complete so that you can receive payment for your injuries and damage. A Denver rollover accident lawyer will be able to tell you about the best way to proceed, staring with determining who is liable. Establishing liability is essential to being able to pursue compensation for your losses, and the faster we can do this, the faster you can get damage taken care of.

There is no need to take this difficult legal task on by yourself. The personal injury firm of Anderson Hemmat is here, and ready to help you.
As the body is thrown violently about in a rollover accident, there can be any number of injuries to the driver and passenger inside the vehicle. Head, neck and back injuries are common, as are internal injuries, lacerations and even burns. The more severe of these will require hospitalization, possibly an ambulance ride, and costly medical attention, along with weeks of being unable to live normally. Fractures can also occur as the body hits parts of the inside of the vehicle. Broken bone injuries can result in lengthy medical treatment, rehabilitation and lost time from work. Sometimes surgery is required if any bones were shattered or moved far out of place. Anderson Hemmat will seek to maximize the potential compensation you may be entitled to for recovery of damages. In cases where a death occurs, the resulting damage is costly both financially and emotionally, and it can be incredibly difficult to handle legal and financial problems which can seem minuscule beside your pain and loss.

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 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.
