Denver Auto Accident Attorneys
After an automobile collision, you will find out that the claims process is not like the TV ads. Insurance companies are in the business to make money. Their goal is to make you settle as quickly as possible, for as little as they can get away with paying. There is an industry-wide conflict of interest when it comes to paying coverage on claims. At Leventhal Puga Braley P.C., our trial lawyers have faced and defeated the toughest opponents. We aren’t afraid of insurance companies.
At Leventhal Puga Braley P.C., our trial lawyers have decades of experience bringing accident claims to court. We know the frustration of suffering an injury through another person’s negligence, and we represent victims exclusively. We will not rest until our client has received fair and full compensation for his or her injuries, emotional distress, property damage, and more. Call us at (303) 759-9945 or toll-free at (877) 433-3906 for a free consultation.
None of us ever expect to be involved in a serious crash. Whether we travel via bike, motorcycle, or car, we assume we will get to our destination safely, as we are safe drivers. Sadly, while you may follow the rules of the road and drive defensively, not everyone is as serious about safety as you. That means, even if you do everything perfectly, a negligent driver could still slam into your vehicle. When that happens, the results can be catastrophic. Auto accident injuries include:
- Brain damage
- Broken and fractured bones
- Crush injuries
- Organ damage
- Internal bleeding
- Severe burns
- Spine injuries
- Loss of limb or amputation
Of course, some crashes you don’t walk away from at all. High-speed collisions, collisions where one vehicle is much larger than the other, and pileups all can easily result in death. There is nothing worse than losing a loved one, especially if their death was due to someone else’s negligence. That is why we at Leventhal Puga Braley P.C. don’t just serve clients injured in an automobile crash, but we also focus on wrongful death. If you lost a loved one to a negligent driver, then that driver should be held accountable for their actions.
At Leventhal Puga Braley P.C. our founding attorneys have been practicing for over 40 years, and our newer attorneys are just as intelligent, thorough, and determined to win. More than a dozen attorneys collaborate on out-of-the-box strategies to best present our clients’ cases to the jury. We work as a team to handle all aspects of injury claims that result from motor vehicle operation, including:
After a devastating crash with another driver, you are likely feeling alone, scared, and hopeless. With mounting medical debt and painful injuries, it might seem like there is no possible way you will recover. Especially if the adverse insurance provider is refusing to pay what you are owed. With a skilled attorney, however, the insurance company won’t know what hit them. Because of our innovative approach, Leventhal Puga Braley P.C. attorneys have won numerous record-breaking verdicts and settlements for clients, including the largest medical malpractice verdict ever awarded in Colorado.
Every person and company has a duty of care: the responsibility to avoid causing “foreseeable” harm to another. This is especially true on the road, where one act of negligence has the potential to end lives. However, insurance companies will try to convince you to deal with them alone and will use tactics to undercut your claim and make you take a lowball settlement. Don’t fall for it. If their insured client was negligent or reckless in causing the crash that injured you, they are certainly liable to pay every penny.
If you feel you may have a claim, speak to an attorney right away. Each state has laws that limit the amount of time you have to file a personal injury claim, called statutes of limitations. The insurance company is certainly banking on you taking too long to file your claim. The sooner we can start our investigation into your accident, the better. More time will mean we can focus on the facts, evidence, and reports involved in your case, ensuring that if you file a claim, you get the highest compensation possible. We will let you know if you need a lawyer and what we can do to help you feel whole again.
Following a serious auto collision, you are likely facing excessively high medical bills, lost wages due to medical leave, and thousands of dollars of medical damage to your vehicle. Of course, that monetary strain doesn’t even begin to touch the intense emotional strain you have been living with since the accident. Thankfully, there are systems in place to help you recover. After being injured due to negligence, you can file a personal injury claim against the responsible party. In the case of an auto crash, that would likely be the at-fault driver, although liability could also be on the city responsible for road maintenance or the company that the at-fault driver was working for.
When you file a claim, there are two groups of damages that you can request compensation for. The first group, and most well-known, is economic damages. With economic damages, you can recover compensation for all monetary losses you experienced due to the accident. That may include:
- Property damage
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Loss of career
When claiming economic damages, you will want to calculate just how much you are owed. You can do this by keeping any bills, receipts, and pay stubs related to the accident, and then give them to your attorney to be added up. Once you have a base sum, you can then begin to determine how much you want on top of that for the second category of damages: non-economic damages.
Non-economic damages give you the room to receive compensation for the physical and emotional toll that the accident took on you, rather than just the financial. This means that while you can get your medical bills and lost wages covered, you can also be compensated for:
- Emotional trauma
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment
- Lowered quality of life
After all, a serious collision impacts more than just your wallet. That being said, determining what you should be given for your non-economic damages can be difficult. Who can put a price tag on emotional suffering? The adverse insurance provider will certainly try to lowball their settlement for your non-economic damages. However, an experienced and dedicated attorney can help you determine just how much you are owed and fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a crash, you deserve to know your rights. We know the pain and frustration you feel after an accident, and we want to make the legal process as easy as possible for you and your family.

Our firm offers a unique blend of professionalism and creative thinking that has allowed us to settle claims successfully for our clients or, when necessary, take the case to trial and win a jury verdict for compensation.

We offer our services to those who need them regardless of income level, and Leventhal Puga Braley P.C. advances the cost of litigation for clients who cannot afford to pay. In addition, we only get paid if you receive a settlement or verdict, which means getting you the highest settlement possible is our first priority.
