Pedestrian & Bicycle Accidents Veritas Law: Defending Truth, Upholding Justice

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 Veritas 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.

For qualified assistance and counsel, call (970) 292-7171 or contact us online to set up a free initial consultation.

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.
