Passenger Injuries Lawyer Veritas Law: Defending Truth, Upholding Justice

Passenger Injuries Lawyer in Grand Junction, CO

How We Protect Injured Passengers in Colorado & Utah

Whether you are a passenger on public transport, in a taxi, or in a privately owned vehicle such as a van, car, or motorcycle, you may be able to make a personal injury claim if you are injured due to someone else's negligence or reckless driving.

There is a lot to sort out following a serious car accident, including who was at fault. Police file a report, but insurance companies often conduct their own investigation and make their own conclusions, which do not always match the police report—or have your best interests in mind.

The legal team at Veritas in Grand Junction protects the rights of passenger injuries. Our attorneys and staff will take care of every aspect of your legal claim to remove the stress and anxiety involved, so you can focus on recovering from the injuries you have wrongfully suffered.

Who is at Fault in Passenger Injuries?

If you or someone you know has been involved in an car accident as a passenger, this can be a confusing time. Your situation is further complicated when insurance companies cannot agree or determine which driver is liable for the accident.

The first issue that insurance companies will address is which party was at fault. Insurance companies will launch an investigation to determine guilt by working with the police reports, taking statements from parties involved, and speaking to witnesses who saw the accident.

Filing a Claim Against the Other Driver's Insurance 

If the other driver is found at fault, the passenger can then pursue a claim against that driver's insurance coverage. Guilt applies even if the other driver was less at fault than the driver you were riding with. You still have the right to collect compensation from the other driver because that driver shared in liability. However, the amount of compensation a passenger can receive is no more than the overall value of the claim.

  • Non-economic damages: These damages compensate you for the impairment of a normal lifestyle, mental anguish, and physical pain and suffering.

If the at-fault driver was uninsured or under insured, we will pursue all alternatives, including recovering compensation from the driver of the vehicle in which you were riding, or collecting from your own automobile insurance provider.

For clients who do not have adequate health insurance, our office can work with physicians to determine whether they will provide care for you on a lien basis. This means the medical bills will be held by the physician and paid out of settlement proceeds. We have convenience locations in Grand Junction, Glenwood Springs, Montrose, Telluride, and Aspen.
