“Real Cases — Real Results” Case Study No. 8:
While driving in Canon City, a family of three generations — a grandmother and two minor children — is hit by a careless driver from behind. The first lawyer they see tells them they won’t see more than $25,000 altogether from the collision. The grandmother suffers from mild traumatic brain injuries; the children have neck and spinal injuries. The insurance company tries to stop paying the family’s medical bills. In the end, the family sees Dan Slater. With Dan’s help, the insurance company is forced to pay the family’s medical bills, plus future medical bills, and Dan recovers well over $200,000 for the family in addition to the medical bills.
Dan is actively involved in the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association and attends numerous continuing education seminars throughout the year. “It is critical to stay up-to-date in this area of law,” says Slater. “The tactics used by the insurance industry are constantly changing; the medical science regarding automobile injuries are constantly changing, and the laws are constantly changing. It is imperative to watch these developments closely — and constantly”
“Real Cases — Real Results” Case Study No. 53:
Driving on Highway 115 between Canon City and Florence, a woman stops to allow a vehicle in front of her make a left turn. She is hit from two cars behind by a careless driver who was not paying attention to the road, or the cars stopped in front of him. As a result of the collision, the woman suffers neck pain, low back pain, shoulder pain, and headaches. Dan Slater works with the woman and fights to ensure the insurance company pays what is fair; in the end, the woman recovers $185,000 from the other driver’s insurance company.
Dan assists clients with an overriding philosophy: the client has to be informed. Too often, attorneys fail to properly explain the ins and outs of automobile insurance coverages and other key points of a personal injury case. “My clients expect a bit more,” Slater explains. “When you call my office with a question, I answer it, or I do the research necessary to find the answer to it. This isn’t assembly-line work; these are people’s lives. Maybe that attitude comes from a small-town way of thinking that I grew up with, but I’ve found that clients appreciate it.”
“Real Cases — Real Results” Case Study No. 100:
While shopping at a Canon City business, a woman is walking across the parking lot. Oblivious to his surroundings, a man blindly backs his large truck out of a parking spot, pinning the woman to the lowered tailgate of another pickup truck. The woman suffers internal injuries. Dan Slater works to obtain settlements from both the at-fault driver’s insurance and the woman’s underinsured motorist insurance for the combined policy limits of $75,000.
