Car Accidents & Wrongful Death

More people died in crashes on Colorado’s roads last year than any other year in nearly two decades. According to the Colorado State Patrol, 672 people died in 2021, a 50% increase from 10 years ago.

“But what happens after the crash?” you might ask. “How can a family get compensation—much less justice—for their loss?”

The answer: the victim’s surviving family members file a wrongful death claim against the person or people responsible for causing the accident. In other words, they jumpstart a legal process that’s specifically designed to hold the responsible party legally and financially accountable for their mistake.

In the event that the family wins their case, they can be compensated for:
  • The wages their loved one would have earned had they lived

  • Funeral and burial expenses

  • Medical bills

  • Loss of companionship

  • Loss of any inheritance as a result of the death

  • Pain and suffering

  • Several other related considerations that stem from their loss

Understanding the Claims Process

In Colorado, a wrongful death claim must be filed within two years of the victim’s death by a surviving family member.

To successfully carry out a claim, you (the plaintiff) must prove the party responsible for the death (the defendant) caused your loved one’s death directly or indirectly through their negligent actions.

The major points you must prove, with evidence, are below:
  • The defendant owed the victim a duty of care

  • The defendant breached their duty

  • The breach of duty was a direct and proximate cause of your loved one’s death

  • The death caused the damages that the plaintiff is trying to recover

Car accident cases may be more straightforward or more complicated—it depends on how clear the cause of the accident was and whether there were any witnesses, police reports, or other clear evidence documenting the incident. A competent fatal car accident lawyer can help you collect evidence and find accident reconstructionists, healthcare professionals, and other experts to testify on your behalf.

So, I had wanted to take the time to give an honest review. In the later months of 2020, I had the misfortune of being involved in a car accident that had permanently changed my mobility in my right foot, and had my undergo surgery to repair the damages. Due to me being an independent business owner, my situation was complicated and difficult to navigate especially seeing as I was stranded out of state where the injury occurred to seek out my medical care for over a month. It had also put the production for my business out of operations for a three month period which caused significant wages lost from my sole source of income. During this time we had begun searching for an Attourney’s to help pursue the wages lost and to help make me whole again after some hefty medical bills. After looking though multiple options, we decided to give a call to Edward Smith. Ed has been a godsend and an incredible help during this difficult time for me. He’s been polite and experienced during the healing process and always was just a text or phone call away should I have had any questions. I didn’t have to wait days or weeks for a response. I felt comfortable with his knowledge at all times and Ed even went as far as to help call my medical providers and negotiate fees to help me save additional money which was incredibly kind. After about a year, we finally have settled the case and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I can finally get back on my feet and continue to grow my business and get back to normal. I couldn’t have done it without the help of Ed Smith and his offices. If you’re considering an Attorney, you won’t find a kinder or more educated professional in the field. (And it’s a specialty, so he knows this inside and out!)

Edward was my attorney and he was fantastic! I hired him after being frustrated by my doctors who just didn't seem to understand why my ankle was hurting so badly after a car accident. They basically told me I was exaggerating my pain.
