Denver, Colo. – May 27, 2014 – Navigating the legal waters following a car accident can be difficult, even without the pain of injuries and challenges of recovery. Often times, an injured party will accept a lower settlement offer from an insurance company thinking that is all they are entitled to under the law. The Babcock Law Firm, a Denver-based car accident firm representing injured victims, recently released the Colorado Car Accident Guide to both inform drivers on what to do following a collision and assist injured parties prove fault and obtain compensation.
The free Colorado Car Accident Guide is divided into three main sections (Preface, Part I, Part II) and several chapters.
“Knowing the right steps ahead of time, before an accident occurs, is vital to ensuring injured parties get the medical treatment they need and any compensation for lost wages, property and other expenses. This was the main reason motivating us to develop a comprehensive guide,” comments R. Mack Babcock, founder of the Babcock Law Firm.
The guide is not intended to replace legal counsel, but rather help injured victims in car accidents properly document damages and injuries, and understand the steps they need to take to secure a proper amount of compensation. Personal injury laws and the procedures for filing a claim are quite complex and require the assistance of an experienced attorney to help investigate, interview witnesses and negotiate with the defendant.
“Although an attorney is still vital in pursuing an accident claim, there are things drivers can do on their own. Besides documentation and timeliness, this includes taking steps to prevent an accident from occurring in the first place,” explains Babcock.
The guide can be viewed online or downloaded here. To discuss an individual case or learn more, contact car accident attorney R. Mack Babcock and associates at the Babcock Law Firm to schedule an appointment.

"I was fortunate to be recommended this firm and to meet with David Ong. David provided an excellent service and helped me through the complexities of workers’ comp. It took away so much of the additional stress associated with my injuries and enabled me to get a fair settlement for the case. My only regret is that I did not know of The Babcock Law Firm earlier on in the process. I highly recommend this firm and appreciate the friendly and empathic attitude shown by all of the staff I came across."
"The Babcock Law Firm exceeded my expectations. I would not have received the special medical treatment I required if it weren't for Mack's resources and persistence, I would not have known how to handle unexpected complications if it weren't for Jan's professionalism and deliberateness, and I wouldn't have understood my rights or how to defend them if it weren't for the firm's thoroughness, thoughtfulness, and top-notch expertise. I am so grateful for their support through such a traumatic and overwhelming event."
