Taking action after being involved in a rush-hour accident

Driving during rush hour is statistically one of the most dangerous times to be on the road. In fact, one in four car accidents happen during rush-hour traffic. This is partly because of the sheer number of cars on the road during this time. It could also be argued that rush hour is a dangerous time to be on the road because drivers are often fatigued and eager to get to and from work. Due to this fatigue and anxiety, they may also be more likely to engage in distracted driving.

If you have been involved in a car accident during rush hour, you should know how to take action efficiently. Car accidents that take place during rush hour can often involve multiple cars, therefore, establishing fault may be more challenging. The following is some information about establishing fault after a rush hour car accident.

Determining fault after a car accident in Colorado

Colorado is a fault insurance state. This means that only the at-fault driver and their insurance provider will need to pay for damages. Correctly establishing fault and showing that you did not contribute to the causation of the accident is particularly important. Acting fast to gain influential evidence in the form of photos and witness statements is very important.

Gaining witness statements after a rush-hour accident

One benefit of a car accident occurring during rush hour is that many other drivers likely witnessed the accident. If you are not injured as a result of the collision, you should make an effort to gain the contact details of people who saw what happened. This could enable you to show that you were not responsible for the accident in any way.

What damages could car accident compensation cover?

If you were not at fault, you will be able to receive compensation from the at-fault driver. This compensation should cover property damage. You should also be able to recover damages for the medical bills that you incurred, as well as for the pain and suffering caused.

If you have been involved in a rush-hour car accident in Colorado, you should take swift action to get the damages that you deserve.
