Grand Junction Pedestrian & Bicycle Accident Lawyers
Dedicated Legal Guidance After Catastrophic Injuries
When a bicyclist or pedestrian is struck by a car, truck, bus, or other vehicle, their injuries are often catastrophic. Catastrophic injuries cause long-term or permanent, life-altering damage to a person, such as paralysis, loss of limb, or brain damage. If the accident was not the pedestrian's or bicyclist's fault, the financial burden of expensive medical treatment, extended rehabilitation, and lost wages from being unable to work should not fall to them.
The Grand Junction pedestrian and bicycle lawyers at Doehling Law will pursue full compensation for all medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering sustained in a bicycle or pedestrian accident. We handle personal injury lawsuits throughout western Colorado and eastern Utah.
Independent Review of What Caused the Crash
Our firm frequently enlists the help of accident reconstruction specialists and highly skilled investigators who provide useful information about the accident that may have been missed in the initial police reports. This strengthens your case and gives us the upper hand going into trial against the insurance companies if a fair settlement cannot be reached during negotiations.
The surest route to recovering what you deserve begins with a full review of the incident. Therefore, the sooner you get in touch with an attorney following an accident, the better.
Maximizing the Damages Available to You
If your bicycle or pedestrian accident involved a hit-and-run motorist who is not identified, you may be able to collect compensation from your own insurance provider to cover your medical costs and lost wages.
If you are hit by an insured driver, our attorneys are uniquely qualified to maximize the amount you recover from the at-fault party's insurance company or from your own insurance provider if that individual was uninsured or underinsured.
If your accident was caused by an unsafe or poorly maintained road, we may be able to file a lawsuit against the municipality that was responsible for keeping the roadway unsafe. There are tight deadlines for filing civil cases against government entities, so it is important to reach us as soon as possible after your accident.
Call (970) 292-7171 or use our online contact form to set up a consultation at our Grand Junction, Glenwood Springs, or Aspen offices. All our cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not pay attorney fees unless we successfully obtain a recovery for you.
