When car accidents occur, the consequences can be devastating and deadly. This is particularly true for rear-end crashes. The forces that act on drivers and passengers in this situation can result in devastating injuries as well as the deaths of the ones we love.
At the Law Office of James H. Guest, L.L.C., we have decades of experience providing advice, guidance, and aggressive representation to people injured in a wide range of auto accidents. Many of our cases have involved serious injuries stemming from rear-end and head-on crashes in the Denver area as well as elsewhere in Colorado. In many of these cases, we have been achieved successful outcomes for clients.
Rear-end crashes occur when the front end of one vehicle collides with the back end of another vehicle. These are usually the result of driver negligence — such as driving while distracted — though they can also occur because of weather conditions, poor maintenance of roads or bad road design. In most rear-end cases, the driver who strikes the back end of another vehicle is almost always at fault for the crash.
Don’t be fooled: Just because a rear-end collision occurs at a low speed does not mean a victim won’t come away from the crash without injuries. Even low-speed collisions can result in serious injuries such as:
Collarbone and sternum injuries (from seat belts locking up)
High-speed crashes can result in even more devastating injuries including:
Spinal cord injuries
Closed head injuries
Internal organ damage
Serious burn injuries (from car fires)
Severe scarring and disfigurement
Because these types of injuries may require extensive surgeries and long hospital stays, or result in permanent disability and the need for long-term care, insurance settlements must be tailored to fit a victim’s needs.
We don’t believe in one-size-fits-all settlements at the Law Office of James H. Guest, L.L.C. Our clients’ needs are as diverse as our clients themselves, which is why we get to know each of our clients to better understand their needs so we can seek the maximum compensation that makes sense for them, not someone else.
At the Law Office of James H. Guest, L.L.C., in Denver, we don’t just help our clients recover the full and fair compensation they need after a serious car accident, we handle all legal matters — from securing accident reports and medical records to negotiating with the insurance company for maximum compensation.
We handle everything so that your focus remains of getting better, not the stress of dealing with legal matters. Contact us today to speak with a skilled personal injury lawyer.
