Car Accident Attorney Boulder, Denver

Recovering Damages in a Car Accident Case

After a car accident, you can file a personal injury claim against the negligent driver in order to recover compensation for the following damages:

  • Current and future medical expenses related to the car accident
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Property damage to your vehicle
  • Pain and suffering

Colorado law adheres to the doctrine of partial comparative negligence. This means that you may collect damages proportionate to the other driver’s percentage of fault for the accident, up to 50% of your own fault. For example, if the other driver was determined to be 70% at fault for the accident, you may be entitled to recover 70% of the total accident-related losses you’ve suffered. However, once you’re found to be at least 50% at fault for the accident, you’re no longer eligible to recover compensation for your damages.

Why Choose the Tenge Law Firm

Car accident cases can be highly complex. It is often challenging to prove fault, and you may require the assistance of expert witnesses in order to do so. In addition, it’s common for car accident injuries to take days or weeks to become apparent. This is especially true with brain injuries, which can have a delayed onset and take a long time before the severity of the injury becomes apparent. This can make it challenging to estimate the total extent of your damages and to demonstrate that your injuries were in fact caused by the car accident.

Mr. Tenge has nearly 20 years of experience fighting for the rights of car accident victims in Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins. He knows the unique challenges associated with these cases, and he knows how to battle the insurance companies that often try to offer you a settlement that is less than the maximum value of your claim.

At the Tenge Law Firm, we work with accident reconstruction experts who can help prove the other driver was at fault. We also work with a team of medical specialists who can demonstrate to a jury the true extent of your injuries, including any long term medical care that will be required to help you recover. This will give you the edge you need when seeking to maximize the value of your compensation.

If your accident was caused by a defective auto, Mr. Tenge can also pursue a claim against the negligent vehicle manufacturer as well. This will ensure that all avenues of compensation are fully explored.
