Our Skilled Grand Junction Car Accident Lawyers

At Cimarron Ridge Legal Group, we know how devastating an auto accident can be on the injured parties and their loved ones. The injured person likely requires extensive medical treatment, that can result in significant medical bills and healthcare expenses. Moreover, the injured person may be facing a temporary or even permanent disability, which prevents that person from returning to work in a meaningful capacity.

The insurance companies do not have your best interests in mind when determining damages you are owed for the negligence of another. The insurance companies will immediately attempt to settle the claims for the lowest dollar amount possible. Often, this tactic works and the injured person is left in a devastating financial situation.

Do not let this happen to you, your family and loved ones.

When another driver caused the accident because of his or her careless or reckless behavior, it is extremely important to retain counsel to address the issue of negligence and inform the client of the  numerous issues pertaining to liability . It is imperative that you have an experienced auto accident lawyer on your side to advocate for your rights. Our Grand Junction lawyers have been practicing auto accident litigation for years and have the knowledge and skills you need to help you claim compensation for your case.
