Denver Auto Accident Lawyers
We Can Help You Fight for Compensation After a Serious Wreck
An automobile accident is among the most traumatic events any of us can experience. This is especially true when the collision is serious: In just a few minutes, your life may have changed permanently. While some car crashes are truly accidental, in most cases, a defective vehicle or negligent driver is to blame. In those cases, you deserve compensation to help you put your life back together.
Since 1969, the lawyers at The Gilbert Law Group® have sought justice for those whose lives have been disrupted by the pain and suffering of car accidents. The results we’ve achieved since then show our skill and dedication. We have recovered over $1 billion and Jim Gilbert, our firm’s founder, was invited to join the elite Inner Circle of Advocates, an organization of the nation’s top 100 plaintiff lawyers.

Motor Vehicle Accident Claims We Handle
Our auto accident attorneys are known for representing clients in landmark auto product liability claims, with many of our lawsuits addressing serious auto defects. We can also handle complex issues like catastrophic accidents, multiple vehicle collisions, and accidents with trailers.
In some cases, crashes include at least one party that isn’t driving a personal vehicle. Our team has experience representing clients in cases involving:
If you sustained an injury in a car or other vehicular accident, you can seek damages from the person or company responsible. We have helped clients recover reimbursement for medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation, and more.
Accidents Caused by Auto Defects
In a perfect world, car manufacturers would never place profits above safety. However, time and again, we have seen them make the wrong choice—and seen its tragic impact on people’s lives. In a rush to get their products to market, car companies make mistakes, take shortcuts, or turn a blind eye to dangers in the design or manufacturing processes. The consequences can be deadly.
Auto product liability cases we have experience with include:
- SUV rollover accidents
- Dangerous airbags
- Structural flaws
- Sudden unintended acceleration
- Defective seatbelts
- Defective tires
If you or a loved one suffered an injury due to one of the above issues or you believe another defect was to blame, call our firm today. The Gilbert Law Group® is one of the nation’s preeminent law firms for plaintiffs with auto defect claims. Thanks to our in-house engineering staff, we have cutting-edge tools and technical know-how to assist us in investigating, litigating, and resolving your case. With decades of litigation experience, our Denver-based team offers the nationally recognized advocacy you and your family deserve.
Wrongful Death in an Auto Accident
Car accidents can not only result in serious injury but are also the leading cause of death in the United States. If your loved one was killed in a collision, you have the right to pursue compensation from the negligent party with a wrongful death claim. We can help you identify damages including:
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
- Funeral expenses
While a settlement cannot do anything for your grief, it can help you find financial stability during a tragic time. We hope it can help you find peace of mind as well.
Holding wrongdoers accountable for their actions is important in any society. We have litigated countless wrongful death cases for the surviving family members of those who lost their lives in car accidents. We believe this is one of the most important aspects of our occupation and we work tirelessly to do everything we can for our clients.
What to Expect During Your Car Accident Case
If you’ve been involved in an accident, after you seek medical attention, you will need to file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurer. An adjuster will reach out to you soon after to discuss your accident. It’s important to have a lawyer to protect your interests before they call.
Why Do I Need an Attorney?
Saying the wrong thing to an insurance adjuster could leave them an opening to shift blame for the accident to you. While unfortunate, it is true that countless drivers end up paying for their own repairs and medical bills after accidents that were not their fault because they try to handle the claims process without a lawyer. We can watch out for any attempts to blame you for someone else’s mistakes and fight back.
Do I Really Need to See a Doctor? What If I Feel Completely Fine?
After an accident, it’s important to see a doctor for a few reasons. First, because the adrenaline in your system may keep you from noticing aches and pains. Second, sometimes what seems like a minor wound is actually a sign of a serious internal injury that needs immediate treatment. Third, having a professional evaluation and a medical record is essential for your claim.
The value of your case will depend on your maximum medical improvement (MMI), or the point at which your conditions and injuries can no longer expect to improve. A doctor can help identify what MMI will look like for you. Their advice can help you establish how much monetary compensation you will need for your recovery and future related medical issues.
How Long Will My Case Take?
The timeline of your case depends on the other party’s willingness to work with us. While investigating the accident and gathering and presenting evidence takes time, the majority of the claims process is spent negotiating or otherwise trying to convince the insurer to pay up. We know a quick resolution benefits you, so we will always do what we can to speed your case up.
In the end, your case may be closed within two months if the other party will agree to settle. For complex cases that go to court, you should expect the process to take at least a year.
Will My Case Go to Trial?
If you are hesitating to file a claim because you don’t want to go to court, we want to reassure you that only a small percentage of accident claims go to trial. Before filing a lawsuit, we will do our best to negotiate a fair settlement so you can get the compensation you need quickly.
However, our Denver car accident lawyers prepare every case we take as if it will go to trial. This provides us with leverage during negotiations and, if the other party does not make a settlement offer you are happy with, means we are ready to keep fighting for you.
A trial by jury is the last step in a long lawsuit process, meaning the other party may come to the table with a fair settlement before we reach that stage. If this does not happen, we want you to be assured our team has your back. We will handle all the procedural elements and represent you during litigation.
