How Western States Law can Help You

We will provide you with an honest opinion and evaluation of your case. In some cases, you may not need an attorney. Many attorneys will not admit this, we will.

If we do become involved with your case, you will appreciate our proactive approach. Because we know how losses can affect your income and daily life, we can anticipate problems and address them quickly.

Whether you run into denials from your health insurance, need additional medical tests or treatment to support your insurance claim, or need help with repairs to a damaged car, we can help. We are experienced in finding alternate sources to replace lost income or pay for medical bills, co-payments, and deductibles. If you act before the at-fault driver's criminal case goes to court, you might have the right to apply for victims' compensation or criminal restitution.

We will also attempt to recover the maximum available for your damages under Colorado law. We develop the facts necessary to establish liability against the other driver under our state's fault-based insurance laws. If your injuries, damages, and losses are serious enough to exceed the other driver's liability limits, we will look for additional defendants and insurance coverage wherever possible.

We can help you recover compensation for accidents resulting in wrongful death, serious facial scars, brain trauma, severe spinal cord injuries, and long-term neck or back pain. If you live in Aurora, the Denver Metro Area, Utah, or Wyoming and have been permanently disabled, we'll make sure that your damages demand includes and explains the full amount you'll need for your future financial security and maximum possible comfort.
