Colorado Personal Injury Attorneys
Car Accident and Catastrophic Injury Law
I am a founding member of Keating Wagner Polidori Free and I have proudly specialized in Colorado personal injury law with an emphasis on serious and catastrophic injuries for decades. As a trusted plaintiff’s attorney, I work tirelessly on behalf of my clients to help them share their stories in the courtroom and in settlement conferences.
My experience includes a full range of personal injury cases including spinal cord cases and traumatic brain injury, as well as products liability. These cases often result in injuries that have life-altering effects lasting for many years and often a lifetime. I am a passionate advocate for my clients during these debilitating traumas. I look at cases from multiple angles to obtain deserved compensation for past, present, and future lost wages, as well as medical bills.
Recovering from Catastrophic Injury
Because catastrophic cases cause so much harm, insurance policies often do not cover all costs. I look to all available sources including helping my clients consider filing a lawsuit against the party who caused the injuries. I have developed a reputation as a fair and fierce client’s advocate for my unfailing work in the interests of my clients and their family members. When my client is catastrophically injured, “physical damages” – often a loosely defined legal term – requires interpretation from a skilled and proficient attorney in order to define these hard-to-calculate, non-economic damages. I excel at helping my clients with fast solutions to cases involving emotional distress, inconvenience, and the loss of quality of life.
Colorado Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Wrongful death and serious personal injury – U.S. civil and tort law govern these types of cases so as a Colorado personal injury attorney I have the experience needed to ensure proper legal support. These cases often involve accidents or negligence causing harm to the body, the mind, and even the emotional state of a victim. In some cases, the wrongful death of a family member can be traced back to an explosion or fire. I effectively represent my clients during settlement negotiations, both in court and outside of court, when dealing with insurance companies or parties at fault.
Car Crash and Other Injury Settlements
The vast majority of serious car accident injury claims never make it to the courthouse. Instead, they are settled before trial either through direct negotiations with the other side or at a mediation or settlement conference. Given these facts, I have spent the last 25 to 30 years of my professional career facilitating out-of-court settlements by creating settlement videos. The purpose of a settlement video is to provide the other side and the mediator, if one is involved, with a concise, but impactful overview of the case.
We know that in the world of personal injury and catastrophic injury law, “seeing is believing.” Video footage is simply more powerful than the written word. For that reason, we frequently film our clients as they work with their physical or occupational therapists to relearn the activities of daily living that we all take for granted. In our view, settlement videos should be the standard of care in the world of personal injury. Showing your story to the other side through a settlement video takes your case to the next level and Keating Wagner does not charge a higher contingency fee to get there.
