Motor vehicle accidents occur at an alarming rate in and around Fort Collins, Colorado. From car accidents to motorcycle accidents, these accidents can range from minor fender benders to more serious and fatal car accidents. When a fatal car accident claims the life of someone you love, it can be difficult to know what to do next. As medical bills, mortgage payments, and credit card debt begins to rise, grieving families can find themselves struggling with unforeseen financial burdens. Even as they are still grieving the loss of their loved one, insurance companies may swoop in offering a quick and easy settlement. By taking advantage of families during this time, insurance agencies are able to reduce their own liabilities. Unfortunately, these quick and easy settlements are just a fraction of what your families need and deserve

A Fort Collins wrongful death attorney can help you and your family during this difficult time. While no amount of compensation could ever replace the loss of your loved one, you and your family should not have to suffer unnecessary financial burden during this time. If your loved one was a primary provider, you may need money to cover lost wages, loss of future earnings, and more. Your attorney will be able to fight for your rights and negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf. Without an attorney on your side, insurance companies often play hardball, using a “take it or leave it” approach that pressures grieving families to accept far less than they are entitled to.
