Meet Our Attorneys

Resting in the shadows of the beautiful Flatirons, Boulder County, Colorado, consistently ranks as one of the top places to live in the country. Boulder County is home to a bustling aerospace industry, a growing technology center, the University of Colorado Boulder, and a constantly growing population. Nestled in our breathtaking corner of the Rocky Mountains, with easy access to all kinds of outdoor recreation, who wouldn’t want to live here?

Personal Injury Risks in Boulder

But with a growing population and access to so many diverse recreation opportunities, car accidents are an unfortunately common occurrence in Boulder County. After years of falling car crash numbers, in 2021, Boulder County experienced a significant uptick in accidents. Many of these accidents caused severe and even fatal injuries. When a crash leads to a serious or fatal injury, it is time for our Boulder personal injury attorneys to get involved. Our skilled and experienced attorneys can help you obtain fair compensation for any damages you suffer due to an accident.

Boulder County is also home to a vast array of recreational opportunities many other locations lack. Our access to the many ski areas within a short drive means Boulder County sees severe skiing and snowboarding injuries every year. Additionally, biking is an increasingly popular sport in Boulder. Twenty percent of Boulder cycling accidents involve a motor vehicle collision. Cycling collisions with other bicycles and dogs are also fairly common. Our attorneys have years of experience settling and litigating both skiing and cycling accidents. If you have been injured while skiing or cycling, we want to help. 

Mountainous terrain and cold, snowy winters also make slip and fall injuries familiar in Boulder County. Property owners are responsible for maintaining a safe property.

Frequently Asked Questions

That depends upon a number of factors including: who was at fault in the accident, the extent of your injuries, medical expenses and lost income.
You should consult an experienced Boulder personal injury attorney for an answer to this question because the answer will vary from case to case. Claims are limited by the Colorado Statute of Limitations, which is usually three years for automobile accidents and two years for other injuries. There are however, situations where shorter time limits apply including a requirement of notice to governmental entities within 180 days.
Yes, our Boulder personal injury attorneys are happy to offer free initial consultations.
This depends upon the type of injury, when the accident occurred, and whether there was insurance in force at the time of injury. In many cases, insurance is available to pay medical expenses, but in other cases payment would have to wait until the claim is resolved.
We generally recommend that you do not give a recorded statement and you do not sign the release forms sent to you by the other person's insurance company. Although you are required to cooperate with your insurance company, you should limit communication with the other person's insurance company.
It is best to consult an experienced attorney immediately after the accident. The attorney may want to see you right away, may advise you to wait until you know the extent of injuries or may be unwilling to represent you, but because there is no cost or obligation involved, it is always a good idea to contact an attorney sooner than later.
In some cases we advise our potential clients to negotiate themselves, but in most cases the client is better served by having an injury attorney in Boulder handle the negotiation. Insurance adjusters are experienced professionals working for the insurance company's best interest and not yours.
As a general rule, attorneys who are compassionate and who have experience in particular areas of the law are well qualified to represent their clients. In addition, a successful record handling your type of case is also something that should be considered.
