I did not know what to do. I had never been hurt in a wreck before and this was a major accident that was not my fault. I reached out to Zinda Law Group and they were fantastic, answered all my questions, got me help immediately, and took care of everything!!
There comes a time when you need someone in your corner that you can trust. Our time came when we knew we needed the advice and counsel of an attorney. The day we walked into Zinda Law Group we knew we were covered.
There is a reason why this law firm has a 5 star rating. My experience with personal injury attorney Joe Caputo and all of the staff at Zinda Law Group has been excellent... I would definitely recommend Zinda Law Group.
Maria Ciara-Former Client
This is a really great firm! They settled my personal injury case in a year. Throughout the whole process, they were keeping in touch with me and helping me get the best treatment possible. They honestly know what they are doing. It was a pleasure working with these guys.
Everyone was so professional and was very interested in helping me with my issues. They were very upfront and honest about what I could expect.
I contacted Zinda Law Group after getting nowhere on my own with a personal injury case. I am so thankful I did. They took it off my plate and handled everything from appointments, to phone calls, and emails.
In short, who is responsible for causing the car accident? If you are unable to present credible facts to a jury that prove that the other party was fault, then your ability to recover will be severely jeopardized.
That is why it is important to hire an experienced Denver car accident attorney who knows how to conduct a thorough and complete liability investigation. This can include visiting the scene of the crash, preserving evidence, and handling the many other complex legal aspects of your case. Without an ability to prove liability, your claim could be worth nothing.
Most often, a client’s damages play the largest role in determining the potential worth of a car accident claim. A large portion of a victim’s claim will be related to the cost of medical treatment. This includes past medical treatment and the projected cost of any future medical care that results from the motor vehicle crash. This is typically presented through bills from your medical treatment providers.
Another area of damages comes from your ability to earn money. This includes all past lost wages due to your injuries as well as future loss of income or loss of earning capacity. The total amount of work time missed and the amount you earn will affect the value of your car accident claim. Depending on your profession and the severity of your injuries, this can be a major cause of damages.
You may also recover compensation for any scarring or disfigurement that resulted from the car accident. The size, severity, and location of the scarring or disfigurement will affect the total value of these damages. For example, a large scar covering the face of a car accident victim will increase damages more than a small scratch on a person’s ankle.
If your injuries are to the point that you will suffer from permanent impairment or disability, you may also recover for these damages.
SOURCE OF RECOVERY
Even if your damages are in the millions of dollars, you are only able to recover what the other party has in insurance or in collectible assets. In most instances, this will be limited to the amount of liability insurance that the other party has paid for. In Colorado, this can be as low as $25,000 per person injured. A Denver auto injury attorney can help you determine all sources of recovery that are available in your case.
