Drivers are increasingly distracted on the road. Concerns about loud music and passenger interactions have changed to issues of texting while driving or surfing the Internet. When paired with high speeds on highways and stop-and-go traffic, these distractions can cause serious injury and property damage in Colorado automobile accidents.
At Carlson & Carlson Attorneys-at-Law, P.C., our Summit County car accident lawyers represent individuals who have been injured due to another person's negligence on the road. We understand that his or her first concern is to get the medical attention he or she needs to recover, but subsequent medical bills and time off of work can cause a great deal of stress and hardship as well.
We provide each client and his or her family experienced representation and advocacy for his or her individual needs as he or she takes on at-fault insurance companies.

Breckenridge Lawyer Handling Serious Injury Cases Caused By Auto Accidents
Many people get in simple "fender-benders" in slow-moving traffic. While injuries can occur in these cases, they are not often as complex as injuries caused by rear-end accidents, truck and trailer accidents, or high-speed collisions on highways and interstates.
Even if you feel okay immediately after an accident, it is best to avoid making immediate statements to insurance companies. Your body may still be dealing with the jarring motion you experienced, and the pain or symptoms of your injury may not be felt immediately.
Negligence In Truck Accidents And Truck Maintenance
Commercial truck drivers and their employers are required by law and regulation to maintain certain safety standards and equipment. When they fail to maintain equipment, such as brakes or tire chains, through proper inspections and repair, they could be held liable for injuries caused in an accident. This is also true for issues of driver fatigue that arise when drivers are overworked and unable to get enough sleep.
It is important to note that Colorado law does not provide for any automatic payments as it has repealed the "no-fault" insurance system. Now more than ever it is crucial to work with an experienced attorney at our firm to get the help you need.
Whether you are dealing with back and neck injuries from whiplash or more traumatic problems such as broken bones or a burn injury, our firm can help. We work to get independent medical opinions and assess the full scope of immediate and long-term medical care as well as lost wages/income from being unable to work.
