Preventing Christmas Tree Fires

An average of 160 home fires every year are started by Christmas trees. This may seem small, but considering that trees are really only a fire risk for around a month every year, the number is substantial. In fact, according to the National Fire Protection Agency, this small number of fires causes about $10 million in direct property damage yearly. This is to say nothing of the risks they pose for injury and death.

When your house is destroyed by fire, insurance should act...

Fire Season in Colorado was brutal in 2020. Our state saw the three largest wildfires in its history – Cameron Peak, East Troublesome, and Pine Gulch – along with several additional fires of various sizes. The property damage has been harrowing.

469 structures were destroyed by the Cameron Peak fire alone. East Troublesome, while smaller in size, destroyed even more, with more than 300 homes and up to 200 other structures consumed during its most violent expansion. The Pine Gulch fire consumed 598 structures. 

Structures destroyed by these fires include primary residences, vacation homes, commercial buildings, and private retreats. Rebuilding will take months, if not years – and that’s assuming insurance companies do what...

Car and Motorcycle Accident

The most common cause of motorcycle accidents is other vehicles. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that 56% of motorcycle accidents occur on urban roadways and a majority of those at intersections.

Most motorcycle accidents that occur at intersections are a result of larger vehicles such as cars, trucks, and SUVs, turning in front of motorcycles. This may occur illegally, but is most often an issue of visibility – at least that is the claim made by many drivers who strike motorcyclists.

There is more than one side to every accident. Sometimes, it turns out that fault lies with someone else. Sometimes, it’s your own behavior that caused problems. Often, it’s some combination of factors, making things a little murky when it comes to liability.

When you are found to be liable for an accident, your insurance will be responsible for paying the damages. When injury is serious or when a lawsuit is filed, your insurance company may appoint an attorney to represent you during settlement negotiations or in the eventuality of a trial.

This attorney works for your insurance company. This attorney does not work for you. He or she will be representing the best interests of the insurance company even if that does not ...

Injured man looking at bills and wondering how to pay for them

When you are injured in an accident, insurance typically pays for related medical expenses and other economic damages. If you have a deductible, you will need to satisfy that agreement before collecting compensation. Your settlement will only be as large as your policy allows.

Does Insurance Pay for Everything?

Insurance settlements typically cover medical expenses, property damage, and anything else listed in the policy. They may not be significant enough to cover all of your damages and they almost...

Car keys and weed

When marijuana was first legalized in Colorado, an increase in fatal traffic accidents followed and, while several factors played a role in this increase, including population growth, traffic conditions along I-25, and increasing levels of distraction, marijuana use certainly contributed. In fact, in a study conducted by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, around 13 million Americans...

Elderly woman on respirator As the novel coronavirus works its way through nursing homes, disparities in safety protocol, cleanliness, and patient care are all coming to light. COVID-19 is highly contagious and the elderly and immunocompromised are at the highest risk for fatal complications. When a nursing home fails to take proper steps to protect its residents, the rapid spread of the virus is highly likely, and, when this occurs in a nursing home, fatalities are certain to follow.

Home office with a cat in the window

Governor Polis has extended the stay at home order for the state of Colorado through April 26th.  The city of Denver will remain under stay at home orders until May 8th.
