If you were injured in a car accident, chances are that your vehicle sustained some damage as well. Repairing or replacing your automobile after a Colorado car accident can be extraordinarily expensive and frustrating. Fortunately, damages are often covered by insurance.

Who is supposed to pay?
Who is responsible for your auto repair bills or for buying you a replacement vehicle often depends on who was responsible for your crash. If the other driver was at fault, his or her insurance should cover the cost of repairing or replacing your car.
Colorado drivers are required to carry liability insurance that will cover physical injury and property damage, so you should be able to make a claim and get fair compensation for your property.
If you were at fault
If you were the responsible party in your car accident, you might still be able to get some relief for your property damage from your own insurance carrier. If you have collision coverage, your insurance should pay for vehicle repair or replacement regardless of who was at fault.
If you were injured
While your car might seem like the most important thing after a Colorado car accident, it’s not. You are. Before you worry about getting the money you need to replace or repair your car, get the medical help you need.
Even if you don’t feel you were seriously hurt, see a doctor. Auto accident injuries can take time to be realized and when they do, they could come with big medical bills and other financial woes.
If your car was seriously damaged in a crash, you might have injuries you don’t notice right away. See a physician.
