When a car accident injures you or a loved one in Denver, Colorado, your life will change forever. One moment, you were thinking about dinner for the week; the next, you’re wondering how your life is going to change, how much time away from work you will need, and injury.
Car accidents can happen in an instant and change your life forever. You may find yourself hurt, out of work with medical bills piling up, and facing injuries with long-term consequences.
If you, a family member, friend or neighbor have been injured in a car accident or were hurt by a hit-and-run driver, you could be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, out of pocket expenses, pain and suffering, and more. But you may find that the insurance company won’t do right by you. They try to convince you to settle quickly for less than you deserve – or even refuse to pay you at all.
It takes a smart, aggressive car accident attorney like Dianne Sawaya to work with the insurance company so they live up to their obligation and pay you the money you deserve. Insurance companies have learned that if they don’t offer you a fair settlement, our car accident attorneys won’t hesitate to take your car accident case to trial and litigate your needs in front of a judge and jury.
You are not alone.

We are your advocates after your Colorado car accident.
In Colorado, thousands are injured on state highways, congested city streets, and long rural roads. In Denver alone, over 1500 injuries were due to car accidents on I-70, Route 87, and Route 85. Imagine how many more are injured on Colorado Boulevard, E Colfax Avenue, and the streets of your neighborhood.
When a car accident strikes, many people wonder if it could have been avoided. Injured Denver neighbors ask, “How did this accident happen,” “Was the accident preventable,” and “Could I have done something differently to avoid my accident and injuries?”
It is common to ask questions regarding your car accident, but it is important to understand that even if you are partially at fault for the car accident, you may be able to claim damages. The law allows car accident victims to seek compensation for the part of injury caused by the negligent driver, even if you are less than 50 percent responsible for the accident.
An experienced law firm and car accident attorney can implement a thorough investigation to undercover what truly happened in the event of your accident.
Was My Accident a Result of a Negligent Driver?
This is one of the most common questions that we receive at the Law Office of Dianne Sawaya. If your accident is a result of a negligent driver then they should be held responsible for the damages that wreaked havoc on your life.
The most common ways drivers are negligent are by speeding, being distracted, or being under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
Speeding is an act that almost all Coloradoans can be guilty of; whether people are late to a meeting, following the flow of traffic, or have a need for speed, it makes the streets of Denver dangerous and caused almost half the fatalities from car accidents in our state in 2011.
When someone is speeding, they are more prone to running through intersections, rear-ending another vehicle, and losing control of their vehicle. If speeding is determined as the reason behind your accident and injury, you deserve compensation.
Distracted driving has continually been on the rise since technology (and phones) became a normal, everyday part of life. Ever since, Denver residents have been hospitalized for injuries, including head, neck, and back. Colorado has put laws in place restricting cell phone use and texting to ensure the safety of our Colorado citizens. The ban on texting and driving can be primarily enforced, meaning a Denver police officer can pull over a driver for texting. In addition, drivers 18 years or under are completely restricted from using a cell phone while driving. In 2011, over 6,000 accidents on the highways of Colorado were caused by distracted driving, according to the 2011 State Highway report.
Even with the texting ban, according to the 2011 State Highway report, over 660,000 people are using their phone while driving. Talking and texting, changing the music, or looking at a navigation system at the wrong time can make a driver swerve or prevent the driver from stopping quickly.
If you think distracted driving was involved in your car accident, it is essential that you discuss your case with an experienced car accident attorney.
Driving under the influence occurs less often than speeding, distracted, or fatigued driving, but the accidents are often severe and can leave you and your family in turmoil. Every two minutes, a loved one is injured in a drunk driving accident. As for the city of Denver, 2,090 accidents occurred as a result of drinking and driving in 2011.
Persons driving under the influence deserve more than a DUI—they should be held accountable for their actions.
No matter the cause of your car accident, At the Law Office of Dianne Sawaya, we do not take your freedom and life in Denver for granted. If you’ve been seriously injured in a car accident, speak to an experienced attorney to get all of your questions answered.
