What Types of Motor Vehicle Accident Cases Do We Handle?

Chalat Hatten & Banker has years of expertise working with various types of motor vehicle accident cases. Our car accident attorneys in the Denver area are well-versed in incidents involving trucks, semis, motorcycles, and more. No two cases are identical, which is why a one-size-fits-all approach never works. We are renowned for personalizing every case to achieve the best outcomes for our clients and their loved ones. If you’ve been involved in one of the following types of motor vehicle accidents, call us right away:

Car Accidents – We have represented victims with serious or catastrophic injuries, as well as families who have lost a loved one in a fatal car accident caused by someone else. Our car accident attorneys have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients. Rely on our skilled negotiation tactics and vast resources to increase your chance of recovering maximum compensation after your car crash.

Motorcycle Accidents – Due to Colorado’s lovely scenery and favorable weather, motorcycle rides are a popular pastime. However, winding mountain roads and other motorists not paying enough attention can lead to motorcycle accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, turn to our dedicated law firm to help you build your case for compensation. No matter how your accident occurred, we are on your side.

Pedestrian Accidents All too often, motorists fail to exercise the proper caution that pedestrians deserve when crossing busy streets. If you have been injured in an auto-pedestrian accident, we can help. Our personal injury lawyers take care of everything, from speaking to the insurance companies involved to interviewing eyewitnesses and filing a lawsuit on your behalf.

Truck Accidents – All it takes is one distracted, drowsy, or overworked semi-truck driver to change your life in a matter of seconds. If you or a loved one have been involved in a truck accident, let us be your ally. Don’t let the statute of limitations run out on filing your claim. Talk to our team today to determine the liable parties, as truck drivers are often insured by their employer and their employer’s liability insurance carrier.

Bicycle Accidents Because a person on a bicycle is no match for a two-ton car, over half of the accidents involving a bicycle and motor vehicle result in catastrophic injury. If you or a loved one have suffered an injury in a bicycle accident, we have experience representing riders from Denver, Boulder, and many surrounding cities. We can negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf to reach a maximum settlement offer.

How Does Accident Fault Work in the State of Colorado?

In Colorado, you have three years in which to file a claim for a motor vehicle accident lawsuit, or you forever forfeit your right to seek compensation for your injury. Our state uses a fault-based system to determine who gets compensation after a motor vehicle accident. To find someone at fault for your injuries, you must be able to prove that they had a duty of care and failed to uphold it. However, gathering enough evidence to build an airtight case can be challenging. Fortunately, Chalat Hatten & Banker is here to take care of that for you. We can use photos of the accident scene, as well as eyewitness testimony, to find the negligent party at fault.
