A: A Colorado attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. There are a number of issues to unpack here, so it could be difficult for an attorney to outline everything important without knowing details about the accident. The short answer is that it could be difficult to predict what the other side might do. That could depend on the severity of the accident, injuries, who can prove fault, and other issues. It looks like you're at a stalemate in terms of agreeing on fault. If you discussed with a local attorney, they should be able to outline the major elements to think about - your rights if you were injured, anticipating action from the other side, proving liability, preserving evidence, and other important issues. Good luck
