After a car accident (or any type of traffic accident), meeting with a car accident lawyer is a good idea because it can:
- Help inform you of your legal rights.
- Give you insight as to whether or not you are entitled to compensation for your injuries and losses from another negligent driver (or some other negligent party).
- Provide you with a better idea of whether it’s a good idea for you to pursue a car accident lawsuit.
It’s important to point out that, in the state of Colorado, there is a two-year statute of limitations on car accident lawsuits. This means that car accident victims who are looking to secure the compensation they deserve by pursuing a car accident lawsuit will only have two years from the date of the accident to file their case. After two years has passed, they will not be legally allowed to seek compensation through this type of personal injury lawsuit.
When meeting with a car accident lawyer for an initial consultation, the following are some things you can do to prepare yourself. Being prepared for your initial meeting with a car accident lawyer can help ensure that your consult is as informative as possible.
- Write up a thorough account of the accident: A good lawyer will want to know all of the details about the accident in question during your first meeting. By writing up a detailed account of what happened during the car accident, you can be sure that you are informing the lawyer of everything that happened, which will be crucial to helping establish whether you have a case and, if so, what you may be entitled for in terms of compensation. In your account of the accident, be sure to note the accident date, as well as what time the accident occurred, where the accident occurred, how many other cars were involved, etc.
