“My wife Marcela was in an automobile accident and had a life changing brain injury. Mr. Reisch was always available and returned our calls promptly. If something new came up in the case, he called to let us know. I was most impressed with his experience…also, he went above and beyond and was concerned with my wife’s well being. We were very happy with the results of our case and I would recommend him to anyone who needs help with an accident situation. He is always available and works hard for you.” – Jorge M.

“What really impresses me about this firm is the teamwork that they display. Every member of the staff knows what to do and just gets it done! Every case is different and has its own problems and solutions, but my granddaughter’s case was completed within eighteen months from the date of the accident. Their fees are reasonable and they do not charge for phone calls or intra-office copies. They are people of high integrity and I feel comfortable in giving them the highest recommendation. I would further suggest you see them as quickly as possible after an accident in order to protect your rights.” – Y.C. – Aurora, CO

“We just wanted to send a note thanking you for your hard work and for your kindness. I was totally unprepared for what we went through to get our claim resolved. Your steady and reassuring demeanor was one bright spot in this otherwise crazy situation. Please also tell the staff how much we appreciate them as well and everything that was done for our family.” – Louise V.

More Than 500 Homes Have Been Destroyed In The Black Forest Fire

While no details are being released, fire fighters do believe that the fire was started by humans. Additionally, they are taking a look at the garage where two people died in the fire, apparently while packing up to evacuate their home. Almost 40,000 people were ordered to leave their homes at one point as the fire consumed and burned over 14,000 acres near Colorado Springs. As the fire is nearly contained, high winds and dry heat have been challenging firefighters efforts to bring the fire to full containment.

Wildfire is one of the things that goes along with the beautiful scenery and mountain environment of Colorado. While fire is a natural and vital part of keeping our forests healthy, as more and more people live in or near forested areas, the danger to human life and homes from the fire season becomes greater and greater. The good news is that the cost in human life of wildfire has been minimal in recent years, the cost in property damage and lost homes has been extremely high. The bad news is that many Denver insurance bad faith lawyers have seen that sometimes when insurance claims reach high dollar values, insurance companies become hesitant to pay out the fair value of those claims. When you pay your premiums in good faith, you deserve to receive the full, fair value of your insurance claim.

Contact the dedicated Denver insurance dispute attorneys today if your insurance company is trying to avoid making good on your insurance claim. A common tactic of insurance companies is to deny large claims, in the interest of protecting their own bottom line. Many Denver personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you pay your attorney a fee only after he or she successfully recovers financial compensation for you. The insurance company has lawyers fighting hard to protect their bottom line; make sure you have a knowledgeable Denver insurance bad faith attorney fighting just as hard to protect your family.

About 200,000 General Motors SUVs Have Been Recalled

The vehicles are Chevy Trailblazers, GMC Envoys, Buick Rainiers, Saab 9-7x, and Isuzu Ascenders. Moisture in the driver’s door may cause a short circuit in the switch, which can lead to overheating and potentially fire. GM is offering a free repair to all owners of the recalled vehicles, and recommends parking the vehicles outdoors until the repair has been made. Similar issues have resulted in recalls by several other auto manufacturers in recent years.

Have you or a loved one been injured in an accident that was caused by a defective motor vehicle? Contact an experienced Denver product liability lawyer immediately to discuss your options.

Every year, there are over 5 million traffic accidents across the United States. These crashes have a wide variety of causes. While the number that are caused by defective tires or auto parts is relatively small, because these failures are completely unexpected, and often happen while the vehicle is in motion, they can be incredibly destructive. In some cases, the people hurt the most in these kinds of accidents are not even in the vehicle. Pedestrians or people in other vehicles may be even more seriously injured. Vehicles that suffer from defective parts may also crash into buildings, causing massive property damage.

Walk Signals Will Give More Time For Pedestrain Crossing In Denver

The flashing red hand on a walk signal is designed to last long enough for someone who has already begun to cross the street to get across safely. The amount of time that this signal flashes will be increased. However, since each intersection is a slightly different size, each traffic signal has to be adjusted manually, and the process is expected to take several months to complete.

Have you or a loved one been injured in a pedestrian accident? Speak with a Denver pedestrian accident lawyer today to discuss your options.

The number of pedestrian collisions in traffic has risen dramatically recently, and the city has been looking for ways to alleviate that problem. With the belief that many people are not able to get across streets in the amount of time that is currently allotted by walk signals, the federal guideline increase hopefully will lead to fewer accidents as lights change color with pedestrians still trying to get across the street. Denver personal injury attorneys have seen an increase not only in the number of accidents involving pedestrians, but also in the number of fatalities, and the number of drive-offs by cars.

Speak with a dedicated Boulder car accident attorney immediately if you or a loved one have been seriously injured in a pedestrian accident. If your injuries were caused by the negligent actions of another person, you may be entitled to recover financial compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Many Denver personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which ensures that you can have access to the civil justice system because you pay a fee only after your lawyer successfully recovers compensation for you. In addition to the physical injury, a pedestrian accident can result in serious financial hardship. No one should have to face that alone.
