Tenge Law Firm Blog
Few people want to dive headfirst into the carnage of a car wreck, but J. Todd Tenge does it every day at his law practice in Boulder, Colorado. For 27 years now, Todd has studied the art of the accident, its aftereffects and its legality. Most importantly, he discovers new ways to combat the insurance companies’ strategy of “delay, deny, and defend,” when their policyholder is to blame for another person’s injuries.

Boulder was named “The Happiest City in the United States” by National Geographic and is affectionately known as “the city nestled between the mountains and reality.” This description refers both to the character of the city as well as to its location at the base of the Rocky Mountains.

Tragedy struck on Interstate 70 in Lakewood last week, when an out-of-control tractor-trailer slammed into dozens of cars. Four individuals were killed in the fiery crash that involved as many as 28 vehicles, and 10 were taken to the hospital.

Nothing is more important than the drive to push yourself harder than you thought was possible to achieve a goal you have set for yourself. Even if you fall short and don’t quite reach your goal, the lessons you learn from the effort can be just as important as success.

A bomb cyclone, sometimes referred to as a “winter hurricane,” is caused by a warm air front colliding with a cold air front. This collision results in a rapid and severe drop in atmospheric pressure, bringing with it high winds, cold temperatures, and intense blizzard conditions. Such a storm buried Colorado last week, resulting in hundreds of traffic accidents, school closures throughout the state, the delay of more than 4,000 flights, and the cancellation of over 2,000 more.
Last year, our Colorado personal injury law firm offered a $1,000 prize to one outstanding scholar currently pursuing law, political science, sociology, criminology, or media studies. This scholarship was open to high school seniors or college students, who were asked to submit an essay about why they wanted to pursue a career related to law. The deadline was December 31, 2018, and we’ve finally managed to choose a winner!

Boulder County saw 6,499 crashes in 2016, and the Colorado Department of Transportation warns that our state in on an uphill trend. Though the National Safety Council celebrated a nationwide drop in traffic fatalities in 2017, in Colorado, 642 people died—the highest number since 2004. Experts blame the economy: people began driving more. That same booming economy is producing another serious danger on our roads: more heavy commercial vehicles.
Todd is very thorough, diligent and knowledgable in his litigation skills and also exhibits professional decorum with clients and defense counsel.
