Why Should I Hire A Car Accident Lawyer?
How an experienced law firm can help with your claim
If you have been injured in a car accident caused by another driver, you might think you don’t need a lawyer to handle your injury claim. The other driver clearly caused your crash. That driver’s insurance company should pay for your accident-related expenses.
Many legal cases involving serious accidents often turn out to be very complicated for different reasons. That’s why it’s critical that you have an experienced attorney on your side, helping you every step of the way.
Attorney Stephen A. Longo and his talented legal team at The Longo Firm, LLC, in Colorado Springs have years of experience helping injury victims demand the money they deserve.

How can a lawyer help me after my accident?
There are many different ways a skilled attorney can assist you when you’re dealing with an accident claim involving a crash caused by another driver. Such ways include:
- Carefully review your official accident report to make sure this document accurately reflects what happened.
- Conduct an in-depth, independent investigation of your accident, including searching for important evidence other investigators might have overlooked.
- Consult with accident reconstruction experts if necessary about your crash.
- Deal directly with the at-fault driver’s insurance company on your behalf.
- Negotiate the best possible settlement offer on your behalf.
- File a lawsuit if necessary against the at-fault driver, particularly if their insurance company acts in bad faith, meaning the company refuses to negotiate, makes a lowball settlement offer or unfairly denies your accident claim.
- Make sure you meet important deadlines related to your case, including filing a lawsuit on time. Many states, including Colorado, have deadlines for taking legal action, known as a statute of limitations. If you miss those deadlines, you could miss out on your opportunity to obtain the money you rightfully deserve for your accident.
- Represent you in all court proceedings related to your case.
Don’t underestimate the complexity of your legal case. Make sure you get the help you need and deserve after your accident. Make sure you have an experienced lawyer on your side, standing up for your rights.
