I Can Help You
Most of the calls I receive about motorcycle accidents aren’t from the victims themselves. I’m called by their loved ones. Overwhelmed spouses, parents and even children call me because their husband, wife, child or parent was the victim in a motorcycle accident and these caregivers are facing mounting bills, calls from insurance companies and, of course, their own terrifying emotions. If this is the situation you are in, you have my empathy. You probably never imagined that you’d be searching for a Denver motorcycle accident attorney. You have a lot to manage right now and I can help take the load off you today.

What is a Contingency Fee?
If you are looking for an attorney to help you after an accident, you should know that there is a distinct difference between personal injury attorneys and other types of lawyers. Personal injury attorneys don’t charge you a dime for anything until after your case is settled. If you have met an attorney who charges you for a consultation or asks you to pay a “signing fee” to handle your case, run the other way!
Personal injury law is one legal specialty that works on a contingency fee, which is simply a fancy way of saying, “free until we win.” You should pay nothing to your personal injury attorney until he or she secures a settlement for you from your case. At that point, your attorney will recoup some costs and receive an agreed-upon percentage of your settlement.
And by the way, it’s free to call me up to discuss your case. I would enjoy the opportunity to hear what you’re facing and to offer my help.
Scott was the only one who looked into my accident enough to fully understand what happened.
“I don’t want to call Scott a lawyer because he becomes a friend. That’s Scott O’Sullivan and that’s the people who work for him. Everybody at The O’Sullivan Law Firm has the mentality and heart that they’re going to walk you through this and get you through this as easily as possible, as pain-free as possible, and see to it that you are treated fairly, justly.”
Are you taking care of yourself?
“We heard of The O’Sullivan Law Firm and I called them and I got Scott at home! He was getting ready to take his kids out to soccer practice, but he stopped and talked to me. The first thing he said was, ‘Are you OK? Are you taking care of yourself? Do you have people that you can lean on?’ He didn’t ask, ‘How much do you want to make?’ And that right there was important.”
Scott O’Sullivan: Not a Billboard Lawyer
Scott O’Sullivan is not one of those billboard lawyers just out looking for cases. Scott has been working hard with the motorcycle community for over 20 years, fighting for their right to ride, for safer roads and against biker discrimination. You will find Scott at rallies and fundraisers, hugging old friends, making new friends and listening to what bikers need to feel safe as they ride Colorado’s roads. Recently, Scott started Rider Justice, an organization that provides free traffic ticket support to bikers, “because bikers always get the ticket, even if it wasn’t their fault.” Scott is also working with Senator Lois Court to increase fines and penalties for distracted driving because it injures and kills motorcyclists. Of course, he also has a 20-year history of winning cases for Denver’s motorcycle accident victims. Simply put, Scott cares deeply about bikers, their right to ride, and to be safe while doing it.
Rider Up! Game Created to Raise Awareness of Motorcycles
“I grew up playing Punch Buggy or Slug Bug, punching my sibling every time we spotted a VW bug,” says Scott O’Sullivan, founder of Rider Justice. “I’ve always wanted to create a game for kids that raised awareness of motorcyclists and even bicyclists on the road.”
Thanks to Scott’s inspiration, Rider Up! is born.
Rider UP! challenges car passengers to be the first to spot a motorcyclist and yell its location in relation to the car. “Rider LEFT! Rider RIGHT! Rider BACK! Rider UP!” The player who spots and yells first is the winner.
Here Is What I’ll Do For You
The truth is, the insurance companies are not going to “play nice.” Even your own insurance company will do everything in its power to minimize its exposure and the amount that it must pay you. And, believe it or not, hospitals are now playing dirty tricks on motorcycle accident victims, too. These giant corporations have legal eagles finding loopholes and developing practices that skate just above the law (and sometimes break it) just to avoid paying victims like you and your loved one.
Here are the ways that I would like to help you not only cope with the day-to-day decisions but to also protect your rights and make sure that you secure compensation for your loss, pain and suffering:
I will make and take all the calls
Once you and I decide to work together, I can take all of the insurance company’s calls off your hands.
I will make sure the insurance companies are cooperating properly
Insurance companies do not always step up and do the right thing after an accident. In fact, not only will the other driver’s insurance company do everything in its power to avoid paying you, but your own insurance company might hide resources that they owe you!
I will help to reduce your medical bills
Most people don’t know that they can negotiate lower bills with hospitals. A very big part of what I do is to get your medical bills reduced so that, once you receive a settlement from your case, more money goes into your pocket.
I will help find the proper medical care
Unfortunately, in my line of work, I see many victims of motorcycle accidents. Even worse, I often discover that they aren’t receiving the proper medical attention for their injuries. Not only is this bad for their long-term health, but it can be bad for their case.
I will help to keep your credit score stable throughout the process
Colorado is a tort-based system, which means the at-fault driver’s insurance won’t pay for anything until all expenses are settled, and that can take a very long time. In the meantime, your bills are piling up, you’re receiving calls from collections agencies, and your credit score is dropping. I can help.
I can do all of this and more for you and you won’t pay me a dime until your settlement comes in because I work on a contingency fee.

Rider Justice: Standing Up for Bikers
At The O’Sullivan Law Firm, we see far too many injured motorcyclists. (And sadly, we meet the families of too many killed bikers.) In 2017, it became clear that we had to get proactive and stand up for biker’s rights and their safety on our roads. We launched Rider Justice, the advocacy arm of The O’Sullivan Law firm. Through Rider Justice, we fight biker discrimination and promote safer roads for motorcyclists. If we’re successful, there will be fewer bikers hurt and killed on Colorado roads, auto drivers will be more aware of and respectful of bikers, and bikers won’t receive as many undeserved traffic tickets.

Denver Accident Map
It feels like Denver’s streets are getting more dangerous by the day. But, aside from weekday morning traffic reports, it can be hard to determine how dangerous and where the car crash hot-spots are. We wanted a way to view car accidents in Denver by type and location so that we could make better, safer decisions about our travel routes. So, we created the Denver Accident Map, which allows you to drill down by month (within the last 12 months) and all the way down to the intersection closest to where you live. Use it to keep your family safe!

Our Promise To You
If you work with The O’Sullivan Law Firm, I promise:
An attorney will handle your case, not a case manager or paralegal
At my firm, you will always work with an attorney and an attorney will always be in charge of your case. We have excellent paralegals supporting our attorneys’ work, but only an attorney — in consultation with you — should make decisions regarding your case.
We will take time with your case and listen to you
In order to understand the full extent of your injuries and the legal ramifications of your accident, your attorney must take time – often a lot of time – to understand your case. You will get our undivided attention.
We will seek every opportunity to secure your rights in your case
If a personal injury attorney simply looks at your insurance and the other driver’s insurance to determine the potential value of your case, then he’s not doing his job. There are many, many sources that may be available to you given the details of your unique case. Again, these can only be discovered by an attorney who is willing to listen and to spend time with you on your case. I will be that attorney for you.
Our work on your behalf is as much vocation as it is our business
Most people become lawyers because they want to help people. Sometimes, however, they get pulled into giant law firm machines that are more concerned about their bottom lines than their clients. You should seek an attorney who is still connected to the reasons that he or she went to law school in the first place: to help people.
Why You Should Consider Working with Me
In Denver, it can be hard to choose a lawyer where every other commercial on television and on the radio shouts at you about the giant settlements that big-name attorneys have secured for their clients.
But there is a big difference between the big-name firms, where they churn literally thousands of cases every year, and a firm like mine, where you will be a valued person whose case is as critical to us as it is to you.
Let me tell you a little bit about those big-name firms. (I have several friends who have fled firms whose names you would quickly recognize, and they have shared many horror stories from their days there.) I call those big firms “personal injury mills,” comparing them to puppy mills. Here’s why: attorneys who have left those giant machines have told me that each attorney typically has 100+ active cases in the pre-litigation phase, and 70 to 100 more cases in litigation. This is an unbearable load! And yet, even with this load, one week a month, each attorney has to answer phones and emails to sign up a fresh quota of new clients.
No wonder that the number-one complaint I hear from former clients of these machines is that they never receive return phone calls. They get pulled into the big blender of cases and then they can’t reach anyone to answer their calls.
You should expect more from your personal injury attorney.
