The law in Colorado involving car accidents is clear—the person responsible for the accident must pay compensation to those injured. Because most drivers have insurance, an insurance adjuster will spend time identifying who is at fault for the crash.
Liability is often difficult even when only two vehicles are involved in an accident. When dozens and dozens of vehicles are involved, then assigning fault is made even that much more difficult. The driver of the vehicle that slammed into you might not have done anything wrong other than try to avoid getting hit.
At our firm, we are experienced at untangling tricky liability issues. We can gather the evidence necessary to show who is at fault for the collision, which makes it easier to obtain compensation. For example, we can look at skid marks or marks in the grass to attempt to reconstruct the accident. We might even be able to obtain dash cam footage or other surveillance video. Sometimes, the help of an accident reconstruction expert is necessary, though everything depends on the facts of the case.
