A car accident can occur when another driver suffers a medical emergency behind the wheel. In these cases, do you have the right to pursue damages by filing a lawsuit? Even when it is clear that the other driver was at fault, does the fact that they suffered a medical emergency make them immune to liability?
A car accident is a terrible experience, and even worse if you were injured. With the uncertain weather in Colorado, drivers face conditions that can be very dangerous, whether rain, snow, or icy road surfaces. If a driver hits you and claims the weather was to blame, what are your chances of achieving a settlement or a jury award in a lawsuit? The answer always lies in the facts.
If you have been injured and believe someone else is to blame, you may wonder whether you have a personal injury case.
Your civil claim, to be successful, must have several elements. Colorado law makes it possible to seek compensation for accident-related expenses, but if you are partially responsible for what occurred, resolving your case can be more complicated – which is why you need a strong attorney on your side.
We were all taught to drive defensively, when we earned our licenses. But for most of us, that was before “smart technology” took over.

As stated in a Science Daily article, approximately 4.7 million people in the U.S. are bitten by dogs every year, and 20% of the victims require medical attention for their resulting injuries.

Serious car accidents that result in bodily injuries or death are mainstay items in the local news cycle. When it comes to receiving information, news stories are a key resource, and the particular language used in a story can impact public opinion on almost any event.
Across Boulder, Fort Collins, and Denver, there are more than 1 million people who cross many intersections each day. Even though the city governments make great efforts to review traffic statistics and find possible solutions to reduce accident rates at the most dangerous intersections, they still occur with alarming frequency.
Dogs are some of the most loyal, dedicated, and helpful friends anyone can have. There’s no question why they are referred to as “man’s best friend.” But when a dog gets scared or becomes aggressive, it can lash out at unsuspecting victims. Being bitten is extremely dangerous, with possible infection of the rabies virus, disfigurement, and a host of other complications.

Being involved in an accident with a semi-truck can be one of the most traumatic experiences imaginable. Because 18-wheelers are substantially larger and heavier than passenger vehicles, the damage and injuries that result from a collision are much more severe than they would be with a smaller and lighter vehicle.
Todd is very thorough, diligent and knowledgable in his litigation skills and also exhibits professional decorum with clients and defense counsel.
