The Tenge Law Firm, LLC, has been honored for its professionalism, legal experience, and client care while handling personal injury law. Below are some of the ways we’ve been recognized.
Types of Car Accidents We Handle
Colorado has several major highways and countless tourists visiting the state daily. Many drivers pass through Aravada on their way to and from Denver, making traffic accidents common in our city.
Some of the most frequent crashes we see include:
- Head-on collisions,
- Multi-vehicle wrecks,
- Rear-end collisions,
- Side-Impact collisions, and
- T-Bone accidents.
Don’t worry if your accident isn’t on this list. The Tenege Law Firm, LLC may be able to assist you no matter how your car accident occurred.
Common Causes of Car Accidents
Many car accidents are avoidable, which is what makes these cases so unfortunate. All drivers have a duty to act safely while on the road. You can seek compensation when a driver breaches this duty and causes an accident.
In some cases, drivers do nothing wrong, but accidents still happen. For these cases, we can investigate the crash to see if someone else, such as a mechanic or manufacturer, may be liable for your injuries.
Distracted driving has become a major issue in recent years. Everyone relies on smartphones and other electronic devices, distracting them as they drive. Taking your eyes off the road for even a split second can have disastrous consequences.
Texting, talking on the phone, adjusting music, or simply eating while driving are all distractions that can lead to severe accidents.
Driving Under the Influence
Driving after consuming alcohol or drugs is never acceptable. These substances impair a driver’s judgment, reaction time, and coordination. Anyone who drives under the influence is a danger to themselves and others on the road.
Our firm doesn’t tolerate this reckless behavior and fights hard to get our clients the maximum compensation possible from drunk drivers.
Exceeding the speed limit is another major contributor to car accidents. Accidents involving speeding lead to 33 deaths in the United States each day. Speeding reduces your reaction time, gives you less room to maneuver, and increases the force of impacts.
Reckless driving encompasses a variety of dangerous behaviors, such as aggressive tailgating, weaving through traffic, and making illegal lane changes. These actions demonstrate a disregard for the safety of others because they are generally unnecessary and entirely avoidable. Reckless drivers are unpredictable and often cause accidents because it’s impossible to predict their behavior.
Weather can fluctuate rapidly in Colorado. Adverse weather conditions like rain, snow, ice, and fog can impact driving conditions. Reduced visibility, slippery roads, and strong winds can all increase the chance of getting into an accident. Drivers must adjust their speed and behavior according to the weather to avoid harming others.
Some car accidents happen due to hidden mechanical issues. Faulty brakes, tire blowouts, or malfunctioning steering systems can cause a driver to lose control and crash. Regular car maintenance is essential to avoid these incidents. Mechanics or manufacturers can be liable if they cause a mechanical problem that leads to a crash.
Potholes, uneven pavement, missing signs, and debris on the road can all pose hazards to drivers. These obstacles can cause sudden swerves, tire damage, and loss of control. While drivers should always watch for objects on the road, anyone who causes a road hazard may be liable for resulting injuries.
Fatigue and Drowsiness
Driving while tired can be just as dangerous as driving under the influence. Drowsiness impairs your alertness, judgment, and reaction time, putting you at risk of falling asleep at the wheel or making critical errors. Drivers should be well-rested before getting behind the wheel and should take breaks if they start feeling tired.
Many accidents in Arvada involve teenage drivers and those with limited driving experience in places like Colorado. These drivers lack proper driving skills and may be unfamiliar with our state’s roads and weather conditions. Inexperience isn’t an excuse for causing an accident, and these drivers may owe you compensation for your losses or injuries.

How The Tenge Law Firm Can Help
The legal process after a collision can be stressful and confusing. An Arvada car accident lawyer can help you with paperwork, insurance claims, and any other tasks related to your wreck.
Here is an overview of some of the services our firm provides.
Investigating Your Accident
We begin by gathering evidence that can explain the circumstances of the accident. Evidence can include police reports, medical records, and witness statements.
In some situations, our attorneys work with experts to reconstruct the accident or understand the severity of your injuries. We may ask you to provide some documents during this phase, but we’ll manage the entire collection process for you.
Pursuing Liable Parties
Once our firm has all the evidence, your Arvada car accident attorney will analyze it to determine the cause of the crash. This helps us identify the liable party so we can hold them accountable for your injuries. In some cases, we might take legal action against multiple parties if they share responsibility for the crash.
We do our best to get you results as soon as possible. In most cases, this leads to a private settlement with the other party. Our firm will use the evidence to show why you deserve compensation and propose a settlement amount that is fair and reasonable. This process may lead to several rounds of negotiation before both sides agree to the settlement.
Taking Your Case to Trial
While the majority of cases end with a settlement, we sometimes have to go to court to get our clients the compensation they deserve. Our trial attorneys will craft strong legal arguments and present them to the judge or jury. We will demonstrate why the law and evidence support your claim for compensation from the other party.
Types of Compensation You Can Recover
You can request compensation for any physical, mental, or emotional damages due to the car accident. These can include monetary losses like car repairs and non-monetary harms like emotional distress.
Some of the most common damages after a car accident include:
- Medical expenses. Injuries can require you to undergo long, expensive treatment. The liable party should cover the cost of all your medical care.
- Future care. You may need indefinite treatment or therapy until you return to full strength. Your compensation agreement can pay for this ongoing care.
- Lost earnings. Many victims miss work while recovering from their injuries. You can request the other side to pay for any lost paychecks during this time.
- Reduced future income. In some cases, your injuries might prevent you from returning to your career. You can receive compensation if the accident forces you to take a pay cut when switching jobs.
- Pain and suffering. Living with the physical and emotional pain of an injury can cause intense agony. A settlement agreement or court award can provide compensation for this suffering.
- Disfigurement or impairment. Some injuries cause permanent scarring or loss of physical abilities. You can seek compensation to address the reduced quality of life these injuries cause.
Our attorneys will work tirelessly to get you the maximum compensation possible after a car accident.
How Long Do I Have to Pursue Compensation?
Under Colorado law, you have two years from the date of your accident to file a car accident claim. You may qualify for an exception to this rule in some cases, but these are rare.
For this reason, you should speak with an Arvada car accident attorney as soon as possible to maximize the strength of your claim and avoid losing any rights.
