Littleton Car Accident Lawyer |Miller & Steiert
Disfiguration, Spinal Cord Injury, Broken Bones & More.
Serious injuries sustained in a car or truck accident create significant financial needs for individuals and families. At Miller & Steiert, we help clients recover their financial footing after a serious car or truck accident. Our lawyers work with accident investigators in order to expose negligence on the part of a car or truck driver responsible for injuring our client. We also consult experienced economists, vocational experts, and life care planners who determine the financial impact of an accident by taking into consideration emergency room costs, medical expenses, lost wages and loss in quality of life. Prepared with experts and financial analysts, we establish a balance of power in the courtroom in order to challenge opinions and cost-analyses provided by experts testifying for an insurance company.
We have the experience and resources needed to help injured people get back on their financial feet again after a serious car or truck accident. To schedule an appointment and case evaluation, contact personal injury attorneys at Miller & Steiert today.

Establishing Negligence on the Part of the other Driver
Insurance companies will often try and blame all or part of an accident on someone else besides their policy holder. In accidents involving trucks, most trucking companies train drivers in methods for avoiding blame should they get into an accident. At Miller & Steiert, we consult experienced accident investigators in order to reconstruct what happened and why. We measure skid marks to determine how fast a vehicle was traveling, analyze the damage to the vehicles involved and collect eyewitness testimony.
In accidents involving trucks we may subpoena a driver's log book, the maintenance record of the truck involved, the driver's driving record and the results of recent drug or alcohol tests. If necessary, we recover the on-board black box data recorder and check diesel fuel receipts to create a time line to see if driver fatigue or excessive speeding was a factor in the accident.
What Insurers Don't Want You to Know
Insurance companies, like other corporations, are interested in making money for shareholders and themselves. Consequently, they employ a number of stop-loss and cost-reduction programs to minimize the amount of money they pay out each year in claims. Towards that end, many now use a software program, "Colossus," to calculate claim payments.
Colossus is essentially an automated claims adjustment program that calculates settlements based on pre-programmed variables entered into the program by a claims adjuster. Consequently, human judgment is reduced to a minimum and there is no guarantee non-economic losses like pain and suffering and long-term disability will be reflected in the estimate generated.
Injured clients need a Littleton car accident lawyer who understand how insurance companies operate. The personal injury lawyers at Miller & Steiert, P.C. have decades of experience dealing with insurers, and fight to get their clients full compensation for all of their injuries, damages and losses.
