Attorney Gary Doehling, who is now Of Counsel, worked for decades with large insurance providers that used loopholes and technicalities to minimize the amount that was paid to victims in personal injury cases.
Both individuals now lead an accomplished team that works to maximize the compensation that injured parties and their families receive if they are seriously injured in an accident that was caused by someone else's negligence.
We adhere to a western tradition of talking straight and backing it up with our actions. We empathize with every accident victim, but if we cannot add value to your case by increasing the amount of compensation you ultimately recover, we will tell you as much and recommend the best steps for you to take on your own.
Skilled at Handling a Broad Range of Personal Injury Cases
No other firm on the Western Slope — and perhaps in the entire state of Colorado — fields a team that boasts the amount of experience and acumen about the inner workings of the insurance giants as Doehling Law.
That insight is critical because it allows us to accurately estimate the value of an automobile accident or other personal injury case and anticipate the strategies of the insurance providers, whose overriding objective is to pay out as little to accident victims as possible.
The insurance company has experienced lawyers on its side—you should, too.
It's important to note that if we represent you in a case, our lawyers work directly with you from the initial consultation through the resolution of your case.
And while we remove the headaches of communicating with medical providers and insurance companies from your plate, we also take great care to keep you informed at every step regarding all of your options so you can be an active participant in the important decisions that are made.

Is My Personal Injury Settlement or Verdict Taxable?This depends: Punitive damages are taxable as "other means of income." Interest income comes from judgment interest. Compensation for economic and noneconomic damages is not taxed by the IRS. The settlement or verdict agreement will be clearly stated so the IRS will impose you fairly.
What Is the Required Minimum Auto Insurance In Colorado?Legal auto insurance coverage is: $25,000 per injured victim $15,000 minimum in property damage $50,000 per accident, no matter how many victims have been affected Since Colorado is a "fault" state, this means you can file a claim against the defendant driver's insurance carrier. However, if the at-fault driver is uninsured or underinsured, there are steps you can take to get around that.
If the Accident Was Somewhat My Fault, Can I Still Win My Case?Yes. However, you may not win the maximum possible settlement amount. Under Colorado's fault principles, your damages will be decreased in proportion to your fault. So, if you were 30% at fault, then your damages would be reduced by that amount in the claims. Keep in mind that the court determines fault.
How Much Time Do I Have to File an Auto Accident Lawsuit?In most cases, you have around three years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. The deadline can be prolonged if you discovered the injury later. If you are planning to sue a government establishment, you may be required to file a claim within a few months after the accident.
