Why You Need Help From VanMeveren Law Group, After A Car Accident
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident or lost a loved one in a car crash, you want an experienced attorney with a comprehensive knowledge of the challenges you face.
Before dedicating his practice exclusively to the needs of injured people, attorney Bryan VanMeveren spent years as an insurance defense attorney, where he worked with many of the top defense lawyers in the country. The knowledge that he has accumulated through his experience in handling the defense of insurance claims enhances the effectiveness of our entire team of motor vehicle accident lawyers.
We know how insurance companies work to delay, diminish or deny your claims. At VanMeveren Law Group, we understand personal injury claims from all perspectives. Our car accident attorneys can help you recover the full compensation you need and deserve from the liable insurance company and other negligent parties. While the insurance company may attempt to deflect liability or provide minimal compensation, our lawyers will fight to recover the maximum amount you deserve for lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
Our practice was developed with attorney VanMeveren’s insurance defense experience as a foundational strength. We will apply our personal injury trial skills to pursue a favorable outcome for you. We will keep you involved and informed every step of the way. Our lawyers will be your advocates, helping you get all the compensation you are eligible for.
Types Of Car Accident Cases
We protect the rights of people who have been hurt in all types of traffic accidents, including:
- Car accidents: Drunk driving and distracted driving are two of the most common causes of car crashes. Rear-end collisions, T-bone crashes, sideswipes and head-on collisions are all descriptors of automobile accidents that happen regularly. No matter how your accident occurred, our firm will investigate thoroughly and assert your rights aggressively.
- Truck accidents: Truck accidents run the gamut from terrible collisions with big rigs to crashes involving much smaller delivery vehicles. We can make sure your interests are protected after any accident involving a commercial vehicle.
- Motorcycle accidents: Drivers of other vehicles often allege after the fact that they did not see motorcycles before colliding with them or forcing them out of lanes of traffic. We hold negligent motorists accountable.
- Bicycle and pedestrian accidents: We are experienced in handling hit-and-run cases as well as other accidents affecting bicyclists, walkers and joggers.
- Uninsured or underinsured drivers: If the driver who hit you was uninsured or underinsured, it can make recovery for damages more difficult. We will use our experience to help you pursue compensation through your own underinsured or underinsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM) if necessary.
At VanMeveren Law Group, we recognize that every car accident claim is unique. We take the time to learn the specific details of your accident so we can tailor our representation to meet your needs.
When Injuries Are Serious, Catastrophic Or Fatal
Motor vehicle accidents can cause devastating injuries. It can be overwhelming to cope with the injury, let alone the financial complications associated with medical bills and lost wages.
Attorney Bryan VanMeveren is trained in outdoor emergency care. He understands injuries and can speak with doctors and physicians in their own language. This proficiency with medical terminology extends to all our car accident lawyers. We adeptly handle accident cases involving all types of injuries, including serious and catastrophic losses such as brain and spinal cord injury, paralysis, amputation and loss of limb.
You may need long-term medical care, physical therapy and rehabilitation. We represent injured people with skill and dedication. We also bring wrongful death actions for close family members who may struggle to return to a sense of normalcy after losing loved ones in car accidents. If your loved one died in a crash and you qualify to bring a wrongful death claim, we will help you pursue financial support for lost wage replacement, funeral and burial costs, and acknowledgment of your emotional pain.
Whether responding to claims for injuries or fatalities, the insurance companies involved will likely throw obstacles in your path as you try to get the compensation you need to move on with your life. Our car accident lawyers are not afraid to take on insurance companies and their attorneys. We have helped others in cases similar to yours.
What To Do When You Have Been Injured In An Auto Accident
The moments following the accident can be critical. Our attorneys offer advice on what is important to do following a car accident, as follows:
- Call 911.

- Photograph damages to all vehicles involved.

- Make notes as to what you were doing just before the accident and every detail of what you saw, heard and felt directly after the accident occurred.
- Record all comments made by involved parties and witnesses.
- Provide your insurance and driver’s license information to the other drivers.

Motor Vehicle Accident Insurance And Legal Counsel FAQs
Bring your questions such as the following to your initial consultation or ask us anytime. We are here for you after a car, truck or motorcycle accident.
Is the minimum required insurance coverage enough?
No, minimum limits coverage will not cover any major accident. In Colorado, drivers are only required to have $25,000 of liability coverage per person and $50,000 per accident. If you are sued, your personal assets may be taken. This is why it is very important to carry underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage.
How can I save money on my insurance premium before a possible future accident?
Shop around. Rates can vary by several hundred dollars. Maintain a good driving record. Avoid traffic tickets and accidents. Take a driver’s education course. Many insurance companies give discounts to educated drivers. Get discounts for safety equipment. Airbags, anti-lock brakes and anti-theft devices can decrease your rate. Choose higher deductibles. Higher deductibles will decrease premiums.
Will my insurance rate go up after my accident?
Maybe. Insurance companies use many factors to determine your premium. Traffic violations, age, gender, residential neighborhood, miles traveled, prior accidents and other factors may affect your rate. Different insurance companies use different methods to determine premiums. If you are a good driver, have no traffic violations and haven’t had an accident in years, then a new accident will probably have little effect on your rate.
What will it cost to retain an attorney?
Nothing. Most personal injury attorneys charge nothing upfront and wait for payment until a settlement or verdict is reached, and this is how our law firm operates.
Most people do not realize attorneys spend a significant amount of time and money on your behalf by hiring investigators to survey the accident scene, interviewing witnesses, paying court filing fees, and spending a significant amount of time analyzing your case – all before receiving payment. If no recovery is made for you, we will not charge for our services.
