Colorado Auto Accident
Insurance Company Blamed Sun Belt Driver in Colorado Snow
Donna D.’s brother was visiting from Texas, and she let him borrow her car to run an errand. At an intersection in south Denver, a driver not paying attention slammed into the back of Joan’s car while it waited at a stop light, injuring Joan’s brother. The negligent driver’s insurance company blamed Joan’s brother, saying he was partly negligent because he didn’t drive properly in the Colorado snow – even though he was stopped at a stoplight. Eventually, the insurer made a tiny offer to settle the case, knowing Joan’s brother was back in Texas. The Colorado personal injury lawyers at The Law Offices of Dianne Sawaya would have nothing of it. The case was mediated, and the insurer decided a better offer was in order.
