Compassionate Grand Junction Auto Accident Attorney Ready To Fight For You
If Justice Will Not be Offered, It Must be Demanded
When you are injured in a car crash accident by the carelessness of someone else, you are entitled to full compensation for all of your losses, both economic and psychological. In fact, the value of your claim for psychological losses such as pain and suffering could far exceed the amount you are entitled to for reimbursement of your medical bills.
How much you are entitled to is a consideration. How much you receive is another matter entirely. That depends on your skill in dealing with the opposing party – typically, a streetwise auto insurance adjuster. Unfortunately, the amount of your compensation is likely to reflect your negotiating skills as much as it reflects the actual merits of your claim. Speak with a highly experienced Grand Junction car accident lawyer today. Let us fight for your rights and the compensation that you deserve.
I Know How to Handle Stingy Insurance Companies
To better grasp the benefits that a Grand Junction car accident legal practitioner can bring to your case, it is helpful to understand insurance companies’ motivations. Insurance companies are corporations that exist solely to make a profit. While insurance companies want you to think they are on your side, that isn’t the case. From the moment you file a claim, the insurance company is looking for ways to either deny the claim or settle it for as little money as possible.
Most of my clients’ claims are resolved by settlement, not by trial. In 25 years of representing injured victims just like you, I have negotiated more claims than I can count, and I have brought home millions of dollars for my clients. The reason why insurance companies prefer to settle with me rather than go to court is that they know my reputation, and they don’t want to face me in court. Often, the moment the insurance company hears that I am involved in a case, they immediately change their tune.
When you bring me onto your case, the insurance company will know they are in for a fight and will not be able to take advantage of you. I will immediately begin preparing a compelling case for maximum compensation.
More About Grand Junction and Mesa County, Colorado
Grand Junction and Mesa County boast some of the world’s most spectacular scenery. I spend a lot of time here since one of my offices is located in downtown Grand Junction. I find the lure of the outdoors irresistible whether I am horseback riding through the Colorado National Monument, hiking in the Grand Mesa National Forest, or rafting down the Colorado River.
Fortunately for me, the Grand Junction/Mesa County area is easily navigable by Interstate 70, U.S. Highway 6, U.S. Highway 50, SH 340, and myriad other smaller roads and byways. The beauty of this area, however, often masks a dangerous reality – your life could be instantly transformed by a serious auto accident, no matter how safe of a driver you are.
“I want to thank you for doing a great job of representing us on this matter. This experience has been a good lesson but I realize it could have been much worse without your guidance and work on our behalf. I can’t tell you how grateful I am for your help.” – G.B.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Are my secrets safe with you?
Yes. As a Grand Junction car accident attorney, I am subject to professional ethical standards that require me to keep our communications confidential unless you authorize me to release them. In fact, it is against the law for me to divulge a client’s confidential information. I would never do that anyway.
Can I win even if the accident was partly my fault?
Yes, unless you were more than 50% or more responsible for causing the accident. Colorado uses a system called modified comparative negligence to determine which parties are entitled to recover for their damages after a car accident.
Under Colorado’s modified comparative fault analysis, the court will calculate your damages based on your percentage of fault. However, if you were 50% or more at fault, you cannot recover anything for your injuries.
Negligent drivers and their insurance companies routinely claim injured drivers are partially at fault for the accident in an attempt to limit their liability. This is why it is incredibly important to bring me onto your team as quickly as possible. I have more than 25 years of experience handling Grand Junction car accident cases and can help you minimize your role in the accident to obtain a higher damages award.
Can I win even if the accident was partly my fault?
Perhaps. Under Colorado’s comparative fault principles:
- If the court determines that your fault was more than 50 percent, your damages will be reduced by your percentage of fault;
- If you were 50 percent or more at fault, you will receive nothing.
How long do I have to file a lawsuit?
The general deadline is three years from the date of the accident, for both personal injury and property damage. It can be extended if you didn’t discover your injury until after the accident. If you sue the government, you will have to file a claim with the government within a much shorter time.
What kinds of damages might I be eligible for?
The three main types are:
- Economic damages: Quantifiable damages such as medical bills and lost earnings.
- Non-economic damages: Intangible damages such as pain and suffering and mental anguish.
- Punitive damages: Awarded to punish a defendant for outrageous behavior (rare).
Statutory maximum amounts apply to non-economic and punitive damages.
