Property Damage HelpAt Denver Bovo Law, we understand that your car is a valuable asset. You rely on it for daily errands, getting to and from work, and you put time and money into ensuring it runs smoothly. While other firms are reluctant to pursue claims for property damage, Todd Bovo understands the importance of getting your car fixed. He will fight to get the maximum amount of money to you to repair your car. By law, if you are involved in an accident and you are deprived of the use of your car, you are entitled to get compensated by the other party’s insurance. This is regardless of whether you take a bus or rent a car. When evaluating your property damage claim, insurance companies don’t use Kelley Blue Book or other common resources for estimating car values. They have their own algorithm to determine what your car is worth, and the figure is almost always lower than the actual price. Todd will fight the insurance companies when they delay payments you deserve, and get the most money to help offset the cost of losing your car, whether it needs repairs or is completely totaled.

Car Accident FAQ's
+What should I do immediately after an accident has occurred?
If someone has been injured immediately call 911. Even if there are no injuries that require immediate medical assistance you should still contact the police.

The names and contact information of the other drivers. The license plate numbers of all cars involved in the accident. The names and contact information of all passengers and witnesses at the scene of the accident. All insurance information of all drivers involved in the accident.
+Should I talk to the police after the accident has occurred?

+Should I contact my insurance company?
Most insurance companies require their policy holders to immediately report a car accident and they will most likely want to know general information on how the accident occurred. You have the legal right to speak with an attorney if you feel you will be better served.
+Should you be in contact with the other driver's insurance companies?
It is highly recommended that prior to talking with any other insurance company you contact a Denver personal injury attorney for legal counsel assistance. You should never provide a statement to the other driver's insurance company because oftentimes insurance companies will try to change the story about how the accident occurred and force you to admit partial or full guilt. Saying too much to another insurance company could mean the difference between getting full compensation for your claim and getting nothing out of the claim.
+Should I seek medical attention even though I don't feel hurt?
It is always a good idea to get checked out by a medical professional soon after an accident occurs. Sometimes pain may not set in for one to two days after the accident and waiting too long to get checked out by a medical professional could hurt your chances of obtaining fair compensation for your claim.
+What additional information I should obtain from the scene of the accident?
Take photos of the overall scene of the accident including: All vehicles involved in the accident. Different locations of the scene. Injuries and damaged items. Take as many photos as you can from different areas of the scene.
+When should I contact an attorney?
You should contact an attorney that specifically handles car accident lawsuits and you should contact them immediately after the accident occurs. An attorney can give you legal counsel assistance and advice in handling the legal processes which will give you a better chance of receiving full compensation for damages.
+How do I go about getting my car repaired?
Depending on the type of automobile insurance you carry, you may simply be able to contact your own insurance company about repairing your car. If you have the right coverage your insurance company will pay for the repairs to your vehicle. Your insurance company may then seek repayment from the at-fault driver's insurance company.
+Who pays for my medical bills if I've been injured in an accident?
Ideally the liable insurance company would pay for your medical bills without any hassle. However, oftentimes insurance companies dispute liability and it can be difficult to get an insurance provider to pay your bills up front. If that is the case it may be a wise decision to get your health insurance to pay your medical bills and seek reimbursement from the auto insurance company as part of the settlement.

Case ResultsHere is a sampling of cases that we have handled. Remember that each case is different. This is not a representation of what YOUR case is worth. Every lawyer with any experience has won cases he probably should have lost, and lost cases that he expected to win. We are no different in that regard. Once a case is in the hands of the jury, it is out of our control. We do believe, however, that significant trial experience in big cases is one factor that people may use to choose one attorney over another. Many of our clients have told us that this is true. With these disclaimers in mind, here are some of our results:
