How to Decide Who Will Best Represent You
“When Your Life Will Never Be the Same Againâ¦” â
The Babich Law Firm
âIN FOUNDING THIS FIRM OVER 30 YEARS AGO, I wanted it to be the voice for the injured â dedicated to helping people whose lives will never be the same again,â explains Bill Babich of The Babich Law Firm. Over the ensuing three decades, Bill Babich has garnered numerous accolades from his peers and clients for his creativity, tenacity, and excellence in his relentless pursuit of justice on behalf of members of the community who have suffered major injuries or the loss of a family member. âBy design, my firm is not a high-volume operation,â Mr. Babich says. Â âWe are in the fortunate position to be able to focus on major injury and death events. Â This approach allows us to devote the time and resources necessary to pursue every ounce of justice for the seriously injured people we represent.â
BABICH RECALLS, âCOMING OUT OF LAW SCHOOL in 1981, I was offered positions with insurance defense firms but I turned them down because it is just not who I am or what I wanted to do. Â Iâve always been on the side of individuals, never insurance companies or corporations. My allegiance has always been to people.â
THROUGHOUT HIS CAREER, BABICH HAS BEEN THE VOICE FOR THE INJURED, from pursuing trucking companies that cause carnage on the highways by disregarding the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations; to representing a young woman who was raped in an apartment complex as a result of inadequate security; to serving the unique interests of a working man seriously injured when an elevator door opened to an empty shaft; to representing an elderly couple overcome by carbon monoxide due to faulty furnace repairs; to pursuing significant underinsured motoristsâ benefits and unreasonable delay damages for a young man injured in a company vehicle.Â Babich handled the recent appeal in a case where a mother was killed and her nine-year-old boy was hurt when a vehicle was able to travel unimpeded through a storefront unprotected by curbs, bollards, or other barriers at the shopping center.
“THESE ARE NOT YOUR GARDEN-VARIETY CASES,â Babich notes. âAnd to me that makes for very challenging, heroic, and important work. Â It means that whatever advocacy and skill I am able to bring to bear will ultimately determine the future for people whose lives will never be the same again.â
GIVEN HIS FOCUS ON MAJOR INJURY AND DEATH CASES, Babich has naturally become preeminent in the area of trucking and commercial vehicle litigation, as those collisions often have devastating consequences for unsuspecting motorists on the highway. Â His extensive work in the trucking area has led him to serve on the National Advisory Board for the Association of Plaintiff Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America (APITLA). Â He is also author of a chapter on trucking litigation, as well as a chapter on Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage, in the Auto Litigatorâs Handbook. Â The Colorado Trial Lawyers Association (CTLA), which publishes Handbook, chose Babich as the editor of the entire Handbook. Â In addition to his writing, Babich, has been elected by his peers to serve on CTLAâs Board of Directors for over 30 years.
âMY PHILOSOPHY IS THAT GREAT TRIAL LAWYERS strive to be very good in all aspects â human relationships; discovering and telling the story; the law; negotiating; brief writing; and trial skills,â Babich says. Â Indeed, Babich is among an elite group of trial lawyers in the country privileged to attend the Trial Lawyers College to learn directly from Gerry Spence.
BABICH HAS ALSO BEEN SELECTED to: âSuper Lawyers;â The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100 Trial Lawyers; Best Attorneys of America; American Society of Legal Advocates: Top 100 Litigation Lawyer; Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum; AVVO 10.0 (highest) rating; Â and has been AV PreeminentÂ® rated by Martindale-HubbellÂ®, the organizationâs highest rating for legal ability and ethical standards.
