Our Areas of Practice

At Fang Law, we offer services as a Boulder accident lawyer with a few key specialties. 

Bicycle Accidents

In Colorado, cyclists share the same rights and responsibilities as vehicles on the road. This can mean accidents do occur that lead to injury or death while riding a bicycle. In cases where you or a loved one is part of a bicycle accident that leads to injury or worse, we are a Boulder accident attorney who can aid you. 

Following a bicycle accident injury, some people neglect taking advantage of potential medical and emotional compensation they have an entitlement to. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to get those costs covered by the party responsible. Insurance companies complicate this by preferring not to make a payout or at least not pay for the full amount. The party responsible for the accident may similarly not want an increase in his or her insurance rates. Instead of fighting those obstacles while recovering from a bicycle accident or grieving following one, our lawyers can assist you with the entire process. 

Our team starts by listening to what happened during the bicycle accident, including the result of it. We go over costs associated with medical care, damage to the bike, and any other costs directly resulting from the accident. Based on that information, we will advise you as to how our services can ensure the process of receiving compensation goes smoothly. 

From there, we go ahead and do everything in our power to make sure you receive fair compensation for the accident. We are familiar with the techniques insurance companies use to get out of paying for injuries and damages and have our own strategies to counter those.

We suggest you at least consult with our team to determine if our services would be helpful following a bicycle accident, particularly one that results in serious injury or death. Our services will dramatically increase your chances of being fairly compensated for the accident. 

Car Accidents

Most people will get in some sort of fender-bender at some point in their lives, but more serious car accidents are more common than you may realize. Getting in a car accident can be incredibly costly between medical bills for injuries, repairs to the vehicle or a replacement vehicle, time off work due to injuries, and other factors. In many cases, car accidents can also be deadly, causing emotional distress as well as financial difficulties for the loved ones of those involved. Our Boulder accident lawyer team does what we can to minimize the financial impact of a car accident. 

Following a car accident, you should document everything that you can. Take photos of the scene and your injuries, as well as the damage to the vehicle of the other driver and any injuries they may have. This protects you from fraudulent claims on the part of the other driver and helps you get firm footing to prove the damage and injuries caused by the accident. Always visit a doctor following a car accident, whether you feel that your injuries are serious. Always ask for documentation of your injuries. Additionally, you should follow your doctor’s suggestions for treatment, including physical therapy, medications, surgery, casts, and anything else recommended. Keep receipts and documentation for everything. 

Our services can assist you in nearly any type of car accident. If a police report lists you as being at fault despite your feeling that this is not true, we can work with you to show that the accident was due to another person’s negligence, not your own. This will prevent you from having to file a claim with your insurance and ensure the other party’s insurance covers the damage and injuries. 

Our team will help you go back and see if you are missing any information that could help you receive full compensation for your injuries and the damage to your auto. Using the information we have, we will then work with you to receive compensation from the insurance company of the driver at fault or the driver themselves. 

Motorcycle Accidents

Since motorcycles drive on the same roads as larger motor vehicles, there is a great deal of potential for damage or injury in a collision. This is especially true with multiple drivers on the road. Whether you drive a scooter or a traditional motorcycle, there is a high risk of serious injury and our team of lawyers can help you minimize the financial impact of that. In the case of injury, we will help you receive compensation for your medical bills. In the case of damage to your bike, we will help you with compensation for the motorcycle repairs. 

Some of the most common causes for motorcycle accidents include drugs and alcohol, speeding, inexperienced driving, distractions, lane splitting, tailgating, weaving in traffic, poor road conditions, poor weather conditions, or a lack of protective gear. Regardless of the cause of your motorcycle accident, our Boulder accident attorney will work with you to help you receive compensation. Accidents can easily become complicated, especially when trying to determine which party is to blame. This can bring into play questions of who is financially responsible. Once you factor in additional factors such as anxiety about riding again, the processes after a motorcycle accident become even more complicated. 

Our suggestions for drivers following motorcycle collisions are very similar to those in automotive accidents. You should always take pictures of the scene, including the damage to all vehicles involved and the location of the vehicles, plus any other factors that play a role, such as a stop sign the other party ran. We also suggest you take pictures of injuries and visit a doctor following your motorcycle accident. Keep records of the doctor’s assessment of your injuries and any costs that arise, both for injuries to yourself and other passengers and in terms of damages to your vehicle. 

Pedestrian Accidents 

Pedestrian accidents are almost always very serious. When a vehicle collides with a pedestrian, the pedestrian does not have any protection to shield themselves from the blow. Because of the disparity in size and weight between the vehicle and the person, injuries can severe and even fatal injuries are common. This means that following a pedestrian accident, victims tend to need to focus all of their energy on recovery. In cases where the victim did not make it or is in serious condition, their loved ones need to focus on making arrangements or the uncertainty of not knowing whether the victim will pull through. 

This is where a Boulder accident lawyer can step in and lift the burden somewhat. We take care of the legal matters and work to help you receive compensation for the accident. This lets you focus on recovery or honoring your loved ones. Our team will do everything in our power to reduce your stress associated with the situation and ensure you have someone on your side with your best interests at heart. 

In many cases, pedestrian accidents are due to negligence, such as driving while intoxicated, running a red light, turning through a crosswalk without looking first, or distracted driving. Other times, illegally parked vehicles can make it hard for drivers to spot pedestrians and cyclists. The most common injuries from pedestrian accidents are broken bones, although other possibilities include spinal cord injuries, amputations, and brain injuries. 

Our team has experience assisting pedestrians who have been in accidents for a vast range of reasons and received varying injuries as a result. This allows us to easily customize our services to your specific situation, regardless of the cause of the accident or the length of your hospital stay. 

Truck Accidents

A truck accident can be terrifying and have serious consequences, from serious damage to the vehicle to severe personal injury. When you or a loved one have been in a truck accident, it is best to seek help from Boulder accident attorneys who can look out for your best interests. Compared to other automotive accidents, truck accidents can have far more devastating consequences due to the size of the vehicles. This makes the need for an attorney even greater, especially one with experience. 

Our team has vast experience dealing with all sorts of personal injuries from accidents, including truck accidents. We will use our credentials and experience to ensure you are not held accountable for a truck accident for which you were not to blame. Additionally, we will work to ensure that you receive reimbursement for any medical expenses that arise due to the accident, particularly if it was due to negligence on the part of another driver. Our attorneys specialize in commercial trucking accidents, protecting the injured parties from companies who do not want to make large insurance payouts, despite that being the proper course of action.  

We specialize in situations when the injured party is not to blame for the truck accident. This can include cases of negligence by other drivers, by the company responsible for maintaining the vehicle, or even poorly maintained roads. We also understand the most common causes of trucking accidents, including fatigue and tiredness of the driver, poor truck maintenance, distracted driving, lack of training, overloading, and equipment failure. Our team knows that many of these factors are not within the control of the truck driver; even fatigue can be attributed due to unsafe pressure from the trucking company. We want to ensure you do not continue to pay the consequences for someone else’s negligence. 

Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one is always a painful experience and this is made even harder when you believe that the death did not need to occur. Wrongful death suits are civil suits, meaning that as the plaintiff, you must provide the burden of proof, something which our team can assist you with. Our team will work with you to show that another person or company’s negligence or misconduct directly led to the death of your loved one. 

With this type of suit, we will help you receive compensation as a survivor for the losses you incurred. In addition to funeral costs, we will work to get you compensation for lost wages from the deceased loved one. We know nothing can ever truly replace a loved one. Our Boulder accident lawyers, however, do what we can to cushion the blow somewhat by reducing other stressors in your life. 

Our team is familiar with the specific laws regarding wrongful death suits in Colorado, letting us confirm that you are eligible for this type of lawsuit. In the case of a wrongful death, we will talk to you and collect all the information that you can provide us, including information from others that is relevant to the wrongful death. From there, we can start to determine the damages that you should be entitled to and begin the process of filing your suit. 

During the process, we will be with you every step of the way and guide the process so you can focus on grieving instead of worrying about the suit or receiving damages. With our experience and legal knowledge, the process will go smoothly. We understand that this is an emotionally trying time and do not want your struggles in the moment to get in the way of receiving fair compensation.
