Colorado Drunk Driving Accidents Lawyer
Experienced Lawyers Providing Aggressive Representation
Within the last 20 to 30 years, judges, juries and the general public at large have lost patience with drunk drivers. The decision to drive drunk is now rightly viewed as a grossly negligent one, and when it results in serious injuries or fatalities, the drunk driver faces severe legal consequences in both the civil and criminal justice systems.
If you or a loved one suffered harm in a drunk driving / DUI accident, you have the right to demand compensation — often two or three times your actual monetary damages. An experienced attorney can help you hold the negligent driver fully responsible.
Pound for pound, Kiel & Trueax, LLC is among the most experienced personal injury trial law firms serving Denver, Colorado. Our lawyers have handled dozens of jury trials. Because every client deserves our best, we always work to recover the maximum possible amount of compensation. Call 720-256-2438 or contact us online for a free consultation.
Serious Injuries in Drunk Driving Accidents
Drunk drivers tend to cause more serious accidents than their sober counterparts because they simply don’t see the car or individual they hit. As a result, they fail to use their brakes. This can often be the difference between minor property damage and disabling or fatal injuries to the victim.
At Kiel & Trueax, LLC, our attorneys understand medical science thoroughly. When our clients have serious or complex injuries, we can effectively argue technical issues with medical experts in trial. We have maintained a strong focus on issues related to traumatic brain injury, as well as other injuries including:
- Spinal cord injury
- Neck and spine injuries
- Herniated or “bulging” discs
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Broken bones
Fighting to Recover the Compensation You Need
In a trial, victims of drunk driving accidents can often recover double or triple the monetary damages caused by the accident. These are called “punitive” or “enhanced” damages. However, if the insurance company doesn’t expect your lawyer to actually take the case to trial, they have no reason to agree to pay punitive damages in a settlement.
Our lawyers have a history of achieving success in trial. We prepare every case for trial, because we know that is the only way to force the insurance company to pay a fair settlement.
