Trial Ready = Settlements

Boulder auto accident attorney  Our Trial History Can Help During Settlement Negotiations

We seek fair settlement first. After a crash, no client wants to sue or go to trial; we understand the hardship of a courtroom battle with big business. As experienced Boulder auto accident attorney and team, the Law Offices of Peter M. Anderson look for alternatives to trial and work in the best interests of our clients to resolve cases with reasonable offers that cover medical expenses and future medical treatment. We know how insurance works and how claims are evaluated. However, many of these billion dollar insurance corporations unreasonably delay or deny the claim – denying rights of the policyholder. It is in these situations that we are forced to the courtroom.

Prepared For Trial: Expertise And Track Record of Wins

As a Boulder auto accident attorney specializing in jury trials, Peter M. Anderson and his team have a very successful track record. No lawyer can guarantee success at trial, however the best indication of future performance is past performance. Our firm has received money in 16 straight District Court jury trials, ranging from 5 to 7 to 12 day jury trials. At trial, the law firm consistently beats the insurance company’s offers.

A random sampling of recent settlements and verdicts delineated by amount:

  • $1,500,000: Pre-litigation settlement for injuries sustained in an accident
  • $1,500,000: Settlement of insurance bad faith case, whereby insurer did not correspond with its own policyholder and withheld contract benefits
  • $1,307,000: 8-day jury verdict on car accident case
  • $999,000: Settlement of insurance breach of contract case
  • $980,000: 7-day jury verdict on auto accident case, with substantial chiropractic care where insurance company offered $35,000
  • $900,000: Litigation settlement for injuries sustained in car accident
  • $855,600: 12-day jury trial stemming from multi-car accident
  • $800,000: Settlement of insurance breach of contract case

  • $600,000: Litigation settlement for injuries sustained in a car accident
  • $500,000: Pre-litigation settlement for injuries sustained in an accident


Today, like medicine, law has become specialized. Trial work (i.e. trying a case before jurors) is in itself a highly specialized field of law. We have been actively involved in research on the subject of trials and have been involved with the National Institute for Trial Advocacy, Trial Guides, Barton’s Litigation Boot Camp, Colorado Trial Lawyers Association and American Trial Lawyers Association. Our specialization and experience trying cases allows us to help people through our civil justice system. We spend months preparing for trials, working in conjunction with clients’ families, friends and community physicians.

Insurance Corporations Pay Attention To Trial Attorneys

Lawyers who have high volume practices, often referred to as ‘mills’ and the big firms you see advertising everywhere, do not try a lot of cases to jurors. At first glance that may not seem like a big deal.

Because 95% of all insurance corporations evaluate claims by a computer software program, lawyers are tracked through the insurance industry’s software systems. Insurance corporations make low-ball settlement offers to those law firms that constantly settle cases. In contrast, insurance corporations pay attention to the Boulder auto accident attorneys willing to go to trial, stepping into courts and challenge big business for the benefit of the injured individual. Jury trials create exposure for the insurance industry; insurance corporations may offer higher settlements, or even full policy limits, to people represented by trial attorneys.
