Litigating a motor vehicle accident case: What’s relevant?

On Behalf of | Aug 29, 2017 | wrongful death |

You instinctively surmise that consideration of whether to file a legal claim following a motor vehicle accident most often revolves around a number of things, right?

And your instincts are entirely correct, of course, because that is unquestionably true in most cases. As we note on a personal injury page of the Vance & Larson Law Firm in Alamosa, “Not every accident should result in a claim.”

We feel it duly important to stress that for our readers across Colorado, to help them avoid filing litigation that won’t really promote their interests and to provide some background on what types of cases can be most productive when pursued in court.

If a claim involves no injuries or only a scratch or two, and features scant property damage, it is of course not an ideal case to bring before a judge or jury.

And that reality leads directly to this observation we make on our site, namely that, “Probably the first and foremost consideration is the nature and extent of your injuries and losses.” If they are substantial, or even arguably material, they should perhaps be adjudged by a judge or your peers in court. A proven personal injury attorney with a well of experience promoting the interest of accident victims can help assess injuries and any attendant property damage.

And there is this, of course: Was blame officially directed at another party involved with an accident? If so, that fact can obviously resonate with a jury.

Other important questions focus upon the types and coverage amounts of any insurance policies in play and the cost/benefit analysis linked to litigation costs versus the amount of a potential recovery.

A seasoned personal injury attorney can provide guidance and aggressive legal representation concerning all relevant aspects of an auto injury-related claim.
