Establishing Fault & Proving Liability in Your Denver Car Accident Case
Our legal team will investigate your case and obtain crucial evidence to establish fault and prove liability for your damages. This may include:
- Accident reports
- Witness statements
- Photos of the accident scene
- Photos of your injuries
- Medical records
- Income and earnings records
Once we determine who had fault for your accident, we will demonstrate the following principles to establish liability.
Duty of care – the at-fault party had a legal obligation to look out for your well-being and to act in a reasonable way to protect you from undue harm
Breach of duty – the at-fault party failed to uphold their obligation and, through negligence, carelessness, or recklessness subjected you to harm
Causation – as a result of the at-fault party’s breach of duty, they caused your accident and injuries, making them liable for your damages
Actual damages – we will prove your actual damages by providing medical records, income statements, and other documentation to support your claim
We may call on experts in the medical field and other specialties to provide testimony about your prognosis, your ability to return to work, and the type of medical treatment and care you will need in the future.
Once we establish fault and liability, the last step in the process is establishing the value of your car accident claim.
Identifying Damages & Calculating Your Car Accident Claim Value
The Halepaska Law team will calculate your claim’s value based on the physical, emotional, and financial damages you sustained. You may have the right to seek compensation for the following:
- Medical treatment and care costs to date
- Lost income and benefits to date
- Vehicle repair costs
- Pain and suffering
- Lost life enjoyment
For injuries that require additional treatment or ongoing care, we will include the estimated value of your care as well as any projected future loss of income, benefits, opportunities, and earning capacity.

In Denver, auto injury attorney John D. Halepaska has assisted and represented many clients who were hurt in a car accident and wanted to file a claim for personal injury. He has in-depth knowledge of Colorado’s comparative negligence law, are equally negligent, a jury may award the injured person no damages. For instance, if you are injured but found to be 10% at fault in the car accident, you will not recover 10% of the total damages or losses you have filed. If you and the other party are equally negligent, you will end up with no compensation.
