Motorcycle Accident

Client Compensated $2,250,000

Don was riding his Harley when a car driver “made a suicide turn” across his lane of traffic. The driver was in the left-turn lane of oncoming traffic and pulled out in front of Don.

“I hit him going 45 miles per hour,” remembers Don, who says that’s the last thing he remembers. Witnesses at the scene and police reports state that Don was tossed 40 feet and he was hit so hard that his boots were still on his bike – the impact literally knocked him out of his shoes.

Don spent the next 38 days in the hospital fighting for his life. He underwent five different surgeries, including one that lasted 14 hours just to rebuild his face. When he left the hospital, his medical bills exceeded a million dollars. Don only had $100,000 of underinsured motorist coverage (UIM) so he could only hope that the car driver who hit him had enough insurance to cover his bills.

Scott O’Sullivan and Eli Ohlhausen, who is also with the O’Sullivan Law Firm, found that the car driver had outstanding insurance and they were able to get Don a settlement within nine months. The settlement was enough to cover all of Don’s bills, save his home, replace his lost income and assure that he can afford the medical procedures that he’ll require into the future.

 

Motorcycle Accident

Client Compensated $1,500,000

Reid was riding his Harley-Davidson 20 miles-per-hour through a school zone at 38th and Vivian in Wheat Ridge, when he saw an oncoming truck turning left across his lane. Reid tried to swerve around the truck, but the other driver drove into Reid’s lane and stopped.

The impact launched Reid off of his motorcycle and threw him 60 feet. At the moment of impact, Reid’s leg got caught between the truck’s rear bumper and quarter-panel, ripping his entire kneecap off. The accident left him in a coma for two weeks, resulted in the loss of one of his legs, and has left him with nerve damage and pain that he will likely face for the rest of his life.

Reid hired Scott O’Sullivan, who discovered that the 80-year-old man who hit Reid had $1.5 million in umbrella coverage. Just four months later, Scott had secured a settlement for Reid. But Scott didn’t stop helping Reid at that time. Reid had $700,000 in Medicaid bills and Scott negotiated those bills down to $65,000.

 

Rollover SUV Accident

Client Compensated $1,450,000

Bridgette was riding as a passenger in the third row of a large SUV that was travelling eastbound on I-80, when the driver fell asleep at the wheel. As a result, the SUV careened off the road and rolled over several times. Bridgette was ejected from the vehicle and incurred dozens of critical injuries.

Several months after the accident, Bridgette was referred to The O’Sullivan Law Firm. Immediately after being hired, Scott O’Sullivan tracked down all the possible insurance policies that might cover Bridgette’s injuries. Scott quickly made claims against the at-fault driver’s insurance carrier (American Family) and Bridgette’s own underinsured motorist insurance (UIM) carrier. Additionally, Scott hired several experts to help Bridgette establish her harms and losses. These experts included a vocational rehabilitation expert, a neurologist and an economist.  Scott then used the experts’ reports against the various insurance companies and was able to secure the maximum policy limits in the amount of $1,450,00 from all the responsible insurance companies.

But Scott’s work did not end there. Scott also was able to make Bridgette’s health insurance company waive their right to subrogation, meaning Bridgette gets to keep the approximately $600,000 the health insurance company paid for her medical bills. It was an honor to work on behalf of Bridgette and we are proud of how hard she has worked to recover from her injuries.

 

Vibrio Vulnificus Food Poisoning

Client Compensated $1,750,000

Raphael ate dinner with several members of his family at a local restaurant. While at the restaurant, he ate raw oysters that contained flesh-eating bacteria known as Vibrio vulnificus. Of all food-borne diseases, Vibrio vulnificus is the most serious in the United States, with 95% of all seafood-related deaths being due to this one bacterium. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that there are 50 food-borne cases each year serious enough to require hospitalization (although estimates as high as 41,000 total cases have been calculated). As a direct and proximate result of eating oysters tainted with the Vibrio bacterium, Raphael was seriously and permanently injured. His injuries included but were not limited to the amputation of his legs, permanent scaring, permanent disfigurement, past and future medical bills and of course past and future lost wages.

As an experienced personal injury lawyer, Scott O’Sullivan filed a lawsuit against the restaurant, the distributor, the wholesaler and the harvester of the oysters. Raphael, a hard-working father of three, unfortunately did not have health insurance and had medical bills in excess of $300,000. In order to prepare for trial, Scott O’Sullivan retained half a dozen experts to determine the future medical needs and wage loss issues that Raphael would face in his future. These experts determined that Raphael’s total future medical needs would be at least $3,967,200, though probably more. Additionally, the experts determined that Raphael would probably have upwards of $409,600 in future wage loss as a result of not being able to continue working in the construction industry.

As result of the vigorous prosecution of the case by Scott, the restaurant settled the case for their policy limits of $1,000,000, plus the remaining parties were able to negotiate a settlement amount of $750,000, which will help take care of Raphael’s medical needs, wage loss and pain and suffering now and into the future.

 

Motorcycle Accident Resulting in Death

Client Compensated $900,000

Chuck and Sarah, a married couple, were riding their motorcycle on a busy road. Sarah was riding on the back of Chuck’s bike. As they approached an intersection, a person coming from the other direction made a left-hand turn in front of them. Chuck and Sarah slammed into the side of the car. Tragically, Chuck died at the scene of the accident and Sarah received catastrophic injuries.

None of the witnesses to the accident stuck around so the District Attorney didn’t bring extra charges in the case, keeping the charge at a basic “failure to yield” rather than “felonious killing.” Sarah hired The O’Sullivan Law Firm to help her secure funds for her own medical bills. Scott drove to the scene of the accident in Northern Colorado and interviewed witnesses at a nearby restaurant. Based on their testimony, Scott was able to secure the full policy limits from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. However, it wasn’t nearly enough to cover Sarah’s medical expenses.

Scott began looking into Sarah’s own insurance coverage and discovered that Sarah and Chuck had multiple vehicles with separate policies on each of them and that Sarah should have coverage from her own insurance policies for her medical care. Sarah’s own insurance company tried to hide the coverage that was available to her but Scott was able to stack each of the policies to secure a total of $900,000 for Sarah. Further, he was able to reduce Sarah’s medical bills to $0 under the Colorado Make-Whole Law.

 

Auto Accident

Client Compensated $863,000

Margo and three other passengers in her car were traveling south on Quebec Street when they were broadsided by the defendant, who failed to stop for a red traffic signal. As a result of this accident, the defendant was charged with two counts of “careless driving resulting in serious bodily injury.”

Margo was severely injured and had more than $250,000 in medical expenses and her passengers had a combined total of approximately $14,000 in medical expenses. Unfortunately, Margo did not have health insurance, nor did she have medical payments coverage as part of her car insurance policy, which would have paid some of her medical expenses. As an experienced personal injury attorney, Scott O’Sullivan filed a lawsuit against the defendant on behalf of Margo and her passengers. After aggressively litigating their case, Scott was able to settle Margo and the passengers’ cases for a combined total of $863,000.

 

Motorcycle Accident

Client Compensated $200,000

Jim was riding his 2002 Harley Davidson motorcycle eastbound on 104th Avenue in the left through lane approaching Fox Run Parkway. The defendant was driving her car westbound on 104th Avenue in the left turn lane, approaching Fox Run Parkway. The defendant, failing to yield the right-of-way at the intersection, initiated a left hand turn from westbound 104th Avenue to southbound Fox Run Parkway, and crashed into Jim’s motorcycle as he proceeded through the intersection. The impact of the collision ejected Jim from his motorcycle and he landed on the pavement sustaining significant injuries.

After the collision, Jim retained The O’Sullivan Law Firm to help with his claim. Through investigation, Scott O’Sullivan learned that the defendant did not have enough insurance to compensate Jim for the severe injuries he sustained in the collision. Therefore, Scott made two claims: one to secure the defendant’s full policy limits and the second to secure Jim’s underinsured motorist coverage. Ultimately, Scott was able to obtain the full policy limits of $200,000 from both insurance companies.

 

Drunk Driving Case

Client Compensated $100,000

Lisa was driving a mid-sized SUV, traveling eastbound on Colfax Avenue approaching Pearl Street. The defendant, who was driving his car while under the influence of alcohol, was traveling northbound on Pearl Street at a high rate of speed.  At the intersection of Pearl Street and Colfax Avenue, the defendant ran a stop light and slammed into Lisa’s vehicle. The force of the collision caused Lisa’s vehicle to smash into the back of a parked pick-up truck before rolling 1 to 2 times.  Lisa’s vehicle came to rest on its roof and Lisa, who was 23 weeks pregnant, hung suspended by her seat belt. The roof of her vehicle was so crushed that, once Lisa was able to free herself from the seatbelt, she had to crawl out one of the passenger side windows.  As a result of the defendant driver’s negligence, Lisa sustained significant injuries. Fortunately, the baby was fine and was born at full-term.

After Lisa’s medical condition stabilized, Scott O’Sullivan submitted a settlement demand letter to Progressive Insurance, the defendant’s insurance company. Progressive Insurance originally tried to claim that Lisa was not very hurt and that her claim was worth less than the policy limits. Thanks to Scott’s persistence, the case settled for full policy limits of $100,000.

Choosing the O’Sullivan Law Firm turned out to be one of the best decisions we ever made. After our car accident in a span of six months my husband and I had experienced three different attorneys that all failed to make us feel we were being represented with our best interest in mind. Attorneys Scott, Cara and their caring team of professionals worked diligently to prove our case while assuring us our personhood was being respected, as well as our health and injuries were being handled with care! After a long three year battle our case was won! I recommend the Sullivan Law Firm to anyone who needs a personal injury/accident lawyer. We thank the Sullivan Law Firm for all their hard work and assuring our case was justified! Meeting you was a blessing!

Everyone I worked with at O'Sullivan was great. They took the time to explain everything and made the whole process much less intimidating. They provided regular updates and made sure I was well compensated. I hope I never need them again, but if I do I won't hesitate to call.

I was injured in a car accident. I contacted O'Sullivan law and was introduced to Eli and Kathy who are extremely professional, knowledgeable and very thorough. Since my recovery included several surgeries they made sure I knew what to expect and what the next steps would be. They were very patient with me when I had none and we're genuinely concerned about the hardships this had put me through. We were able to settle my case and I would recommend Eli and his team to anyone who is in need of legal help.

They took my motorcycle injury case even though it wasn’t a sure thing and eventually won me a settlement. Scott and Eli took personal attention and kept me informed along the way. Scott even came to speak at my bike club on his own time regarding legal matters relating to bikers. Very satisfied with my experience and definitely recommend.

I have had the unfortunate experience of being involved in two very serious car accidents. I was referred to the O'Sullivan Law Firm by a good friend and I am extremely grateful for the referral. Eli is an exceptional lawyer who guided me through extremely difficult times. I could could count on Eli to answer all my questions and concerns as well as counsel me when I needed the emotional support to get through this traumatic period of my life. I am grateful to Eli and the O'Sullivan Law Firm for all the support they gave me during these cases and going to bat for me to get me the compensation I rightfully deserved.

I had a great experience with the O'Sullivan Law Firm, and specifically with Eli Ohlhausen. Eli was helpful, courteous, and professional. He was willing to do whatever was required, and he was particularly excellent at communicating with me regularly and updating me on what was going on. I would highly recommend this firm to anybody.

Having an auto accident can put you in a horrible position. You will never be able to recover completely without the help of a trustworthy law firm. O'Sullivan is just the type of firm that will be there for you not only on a law level, but a personal level as well. My experience with them gave me the power to go forward without worry. They will let you know exactly what you need to do. On top of that, they actually care about what happens after everything is taken care of. Don't go with some large law firm you see on TV promising everything under the sun. Go with these kind, caring people because they will really take care of you. It's been 3 years since my accident and even today I feel like I picked the right people. Thank you Scott for everything you, Eli Ohlhausen and your people did for me.

I reached out to O’Sullivan Law Firm after firing a different firm that wasn’t representing me the best that they could. I was Involved in an auto accident and foremost, O’Sullivan wanted to make sure that I was made whole again. That included my health and my loss from the accident. My experience was excellent! I always felt comfortable and professionally represented. You can’t go wrong with hiring O’Sullivan. Believe me, don’t settle for subpar representation the big billboard attorneys have posted all around Denver Metro.

I talked to a lot of different lawyers and the o’Sullivan law firm was the one and only firm that treated me like a person instead of a number. A motorcycle accident is a very stressful time in anyone’s life so when you find a man like Scott O’Sullivan life becomes a lot easier!!!

We ended up not using their services and was referred to another Denver attorney to help with our case, but our initial call with Eli was great. My husband was in a recent accident, and even with the seriousness of the situation at hand, Eli was able to get a few laughs out of my husband - which was great to hear in spite of the sadness that had been surrounding us. The attorney we were referred to worked out well, so it was a great referral.

I was involved in an accident while I was commuting home on my bicycle. A car ignored a red light and t-boned me at a busy intersection, leaving me injured and without a bike. I heard about Scott O’Sullivan after he came to my work to answer questions for our cycling group. I didn’t need his services at the time, but after this accident, I immediately thought to call his law firm and I’m glad that I did. I primarily worked with Melissa Hemmert and Sharon of the firm and they were very helpful throughout the entire process. I met with their team for the initial consultation and they gave me clear advice on how to handle my situation. Once this was complete, they took care of the rest. If I had questions, or just wanted a status update on my case, they were quick to answer my emails. The at-fault driver’s insurance company refused to budge on a settlement offer, but Melissa kept fighting for a fair settlement, and she got it for me. If you’re looking for an attorney, I would highly recommend the O’Sullivan Law Firm!

I don't know the outcome of my case yet. But, what I wanted to say is this, I came to their office, we talked about a lot of things, but one thing I figured for myself that they are honest people. They do the right thing and I know from my life experience that when you do the right thing, things always work out for the best. They are not that type of people, I think who would do anything and everything just for the money. Which is why they won my heart. And it is very important who you working with on your claim, I believe. There are plenty of law firms in the city, but I am glad that I came here and I have a good feeling that I did the right thing.

The O'Sullivan law firm team and Mr. O'sullivan did excellent in my auto injury case. I was hurt pretty badly by a negiglent driver and did not know what to do. Fortunate enough, I met him and his team and they got things done with my best interests. Ive had experience with other law firms and I got to say the staffs professionalism and strong effort to make things right was outstanding. I wish them the best in continuing stellar service for others in the community. Once again, thank you O'Sullivan Law Firm!

If you are ever injured in a car accident, the O'Sullivan Law Firm is your best choice as far as lawyers in Colorado. I didn't have much experience with lawyers, so I was shopping around to see which one would be the best fit for me. After going through a few choices, I found Scott and was very impressed with him and his firm. Amanda, Eli & Scott have worked SO hard to get my good results from this whole 3 year ordeal, and they are very stand up and honest people. It is hard to find that these days, and to know you can absolutely 100% trust your lawyer is a very relieving feeling, especially when dealing with something as messy as a car accident. I would recommend Scott's firm to anyone I know and have the reassurance that they would be in good hands. Thank you so much Amanda, Eli & Scott!!

Scott was my attorney on a personal injury case and after years of waiting for the criminal side to finish, he stuck with me through the entire process. During the criminal proceedings he was always in constant contact with the DA to make sure the cases would not interfere with each other. He was always available to answer my questions and even once his part in the case was complete, he has always taken the time to talk to me when issues came up with the collection of the judgement that we were awarded. For the past 7 years he has been continually supportive through the process, helped keep me standing when the case would emotionally drain me and has always been a contact for any further issues with the judgement (long after his part in the case was completed). I am so grateful to have had such a caring attorney to work with through the hell of the case and constantly reassure me that it was going to be ok.

To Whom It May Concern: My name is Keith Muse; I retained Scott O'Sullivan to represent my interest in a lawsuit against a drunk driver. I met Scott by chance and after finding out he was an attorney I asked about my type of case. He made it clear he was not looking to take me away from my current attorney and then proceeded to tell me more about my case in 10 minutes than my current attorney had in 3 months. I promptly fired my former attorney and retained the services of the O'Sullivan Law Firm. I could not be happier with that decision. Scott and his entire firm showed the utmost care, consideration, dedication, professionalism, and genuine regard for me and my situation. The entire team worked diligently to move my case along without delay. They kept me informed and prepared every step of the way as the case moved forward. In the end, Scott skillfully negotiated a very favorable settlement. I have and will continue to recommend Scott and the O'Sullivan Law Firm to anyone needing legal representation. It is refreshing to see such a high level of honesty and integrity in today's world. I can not say enough positive things about my experience working with these good people. Sincerest Regards, Keith Muse
