Car Accidents in Colorado
Car accidents in Colorado come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes, they involve very serious and life-threatening injuries, even death, while others involve minor damage to your car.
A car accident can be a traumatic, life-changing event. Car accidents often have long-term effects, such as emotional and physical pain and suffering. You may be left unable to work and be faced with hospital bills for past, current, and/or future medical treatment.
If you or someone you know was involved in a car accident in CO, you could be eligible to recover financial compensation from the at-fault party's insurance company. A local car accident attorney can help you recover what you’re legally entitled to.

Car Accident Injury Claim Process
If you were injured in a car accident in Colorado and you file an insurance claim, you would be making a claim against another person’s insurance company, and not another person directly.
The insurance claim process involves a lot of back and forth and is often a complicated and time-consuming process. Insurance companies have many lawyers who will try to pay you as little as possible. Speak with an accomplished car accident lawyer in Colorado and let us help you navigate this process, don’t settle for less than you’re legally entitled to.
It’s free to contact us to discuss your situation. If we end up representing you, we never get paid until you do.

Below are some frequently asked questions and topics we often discuss with our clients when it comes to car accidents in Colorado.
How much does a car accident attorney in Colorado charge?
Most car accident attorneys, including us, work on contingency. This means that if we don’t recover money for you, we don’t get paid. Being that every case is different and every client is unique, there isn’t a one size fits all structure.
How long do I have to file a claim after a car accident in Colorado?
Each state sets its own laws around this topic, called the statute of limitations. This law caps the maximum amount of time an insurance claim can be filed after an accident.
In cases involving car accidents in Colorado, the statute of limitations is three years, meaning you have three years from the date of the accident to file a claim. The longer you wait, the more difficult it may be for a car accident lawyer in Colorado to appropriately determine what you’re legally entitled to.
Do I need a lawyer for a car accident in Colorado?
Ultimately, this is your decision. You are able to file a claim without the help of an attorney. However, without a lawyer representing you, the chances of recovering the maximum compensation you’re legally entitled to are much lower.
If you were injured in a car accident in Colorado and chose to represent yourself, you could. However, dealing with insurance companies and their lawyers is time-consuming and complicated. A lawyer who represents an insurance company wants to settle your case for less than it’s worth-after all, they represent the insurance company, not you.
When do I need a lawyer for a car accident in Colorado?
The sooner, the better. An experienced Colorado car accident attorney will be able to do a better job the earlier they’re involved. Contact an attorney immediately after an accident, even if you don’t know if you want to file a car accident claim.
Should I speak to the other party’s insurance company?
You’re not required to. If you chose to, remember to always stay neutral. It’s very important to remember that the defendant’s insurance company wants to limit their liability. They want to pay you as little as they can and may use statements you made to them against you.
For this reason alone, it’s important to consult with a seasoned Boulder car accident attorney early on. The defendant/s will have lawyers from their insurance company representing them, so you should have one representing you. Your attorney has your best interests in mind, while the defendant’s insurance company’s lawyers try to limit their own liability.
What happens if the person who caused a car accident in Colorado doesn’t have insurance or doesn’t have enough insurance coverage?
A minimum amount of car insurance is legally required to operate a motor vehicle in Colorado. If you were involved in a car accident in Colorado and the other driver/s don’t have car insurance or don’t have enough coverage, things get more complicated.
This is when it’s even more important to have an experienced car accident attorney in Colorado on your side. Having legal representation in a situation like this may be the only way that you can find someone liable for your damages.
Why Choose the Law Office of Stuart Mann as your Colorado Car Accident Attorney?
We know the thought of calling a car accident lawyer might not be your first choice. At the end of the day, the defendant’s insurance company does not have your best interests in mind-they represent an insurance company. You need someone who has your best interests in mind working with you.
If you decide to hire a reputable car accident lawyer in Colorado, their job is to maximize the value of your case and help you recover from your losses. It’s important to work with an attorney that has a reputation for going to trial, even if you don’t want to. Stuart Mann has been doing this for over 35 years. Our adversaries recognize and respect us as lawyers. They’re aware that we prepare every case as if it were going to go to trial. This alone gives us a competitive advantage over many of our peers.
Insurance companies are good at spotting vulnerability on the plaintiff’s side and want to pay you as little as possible. Hire a car accident attorney in Boulder that you trust-one that has a strong track record of successfully negotiating with insurance companies and their lawyers.
It’s always free to discuss your situation, and we never get paid unless and until you do. We’re here to help you get what you legally deserve.

Stuart Mann was amazing to work with. His firm took on our case and it was such a wonderful experience working with them and not having to worry about anything. The settlement that came through was so nice to have after being in a scary accident. We are happy we decided to work with them.-Client
During the long months that followed my bicycling accident and resulting injuries -- my bike and I were run over by an SUV driver -- Stuart Mann was my closest and most trusted advisor. I can say without hesitation, their legal guidance and representation were consistently everything a client hopes for. But just as importantly, they were exceptionally kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable partners throughout all that transpired. Really, I cannot say enough about the firm. Good humans make good attorneys, and Stuart Mann is both.-Client
When I lost my son in an automobile accident it was devastating. Stuart helped our family cope with the loss. His guidance and expertise in wrongful death cases was tremendous. He was respectful yet demanding in handling the case. While there is never enough money to bring back a lost child, Stuart made the defendants pay for their actions and recovered a huge amount of money to help our family. He did a great job.-Client
I was treated like a member of the family. They were always willing to answer my questions and help in any way they could. Best of all, they did a great job and we got a great settlement for my case.-Client
When we went to the settlement conference, I was ready to accept what was offered, but Stuart encouraged me to go to trial. He was not afraid of the insurance company or their lawyers. At trial, we received three times more than the insurance company offered us. I was very impressed with his trial skills.-Client
My car accident left me shattered, physically and mentally. Stuart’s offer of help came soon after I was released from intensive care, and he’s been on my side since. When you’re involved in a big accident, there are so many things you need to concentrate on, and it’s been a great comfort to know I don’t need to spend untold hours dealing with insurance companies or hospital billing departments. Thanks Stuart!-Client
Stuart Mann worked so hard for me throughout my whole case and fought for the settlement that I deserved, not what was offered by insurance. They handled every facet of my case and made the whole process easy for me. I'm incredibly appreciative of his work.-Client
Having been the innocent victim of a head-on auto accident caused by texting while driving, I sought Stuart Mann’s legal counsel. From the outset he was fully dedicated to accompanying me through a lengthy recuperative process, using his skills, experience, and resources to achieve justice and adequate financial compensation on my behalf. His unconditional concern for my well-being and his involvement of time and effort on my behalf freed me from legal concerns and responsibilities, allowing me to focus my efforts and energy on physical and mental recovery. I strongly recommend Stuart Mann to anyone needing the legal services he offers.-Client

Specifically, the firm has accompanied Cyclists 4 Community and its nonprofit mission since 2013 with both tangible and substantial support for making the community a better place in the first place.-Client
It has been over a year and a half since my brother’s bicycle accident with a car in Boulder, Colorado. The details of the accident were in my brother’s favor, as he was in the crosswalk traveling with traffic. His case was brought to several legal firms in Colorado, but none would take the case due to his mental disability and apparently unable to gain significant ‘compensation’. Fortunate for us, his case was eagerly accepted by Stuart Mann. My brother was treated respectfully and with care, without being discriminated against due to his disability. He won a sizable settlement all due to the detailed knowledge Mr. Mann has for the legal profession and his involvement in the biking community.-Client

After my auto accident, I had to have my hip replaced. The insurance company said that my need for a hip replacement was not accident related. Stuart believed in me and my case and we were able to obtain the maximum amount available. His hard work helped change my life.-Client
I always felt like the top priority of the firm and their team. They provided the best legal services for me throughout my case. Their office is professional, competent, and they also connected with me personally so that I genuinely felt supported.-Client
