"I was involved in a serious traffic accident in May, 2012. I contacted Mr. Falcone in June concerning my options. We discussed what would be involved and how it would be accomplished. I decided to hire Mr. Falcone and I certainly am happy I did. My claim was going to be against the other driver's insurance and a claim against my own insurance as I had a rider for un-insured/underinsured coverage. The other driver's insurance paid the maximum. For the claim against my insurance, we ended up going to mediation and received fair compensation. Mr. Falcone told me what he thought my injuries were worth and he was right on with what I received.
Mr. Falcone kept me informed throughout the process, was candid about what to expect and delivered quality service. I highly recommend his services (already have to another I know to have been severely injured)."

"Bill is a good guy and a great attorney. The advice he gave me was extremely helpful and he is very knowledgeable. Bill's staff was very helpful relaying messages and very friendly. I will use Bill again if I ever need help again."
– Breckenridge, CO Personal Injury Client - October, 2014

"Mr. Falcone is one of the best attorneys, if not the best! I had been going thru a case in which I would have been completely side swiped by the justice system or the DA's office! Not only did he keep my spirits high with reassurance of a satisfactory outcome, but he also checked on my well being outside of the case. As a client, I was able to get in contact with Mr. Falcone, no matter what the situation was and I was given his personal cell phone number as well as an immediate number to get in contact with him. Overall, Mr. Falcone's performance was superb and unmatched as a knowledgeable and professional attorney! Thank you again and I would highly recommend him as a attorney at law"

"Mr. Falcon help us, me and my wife, on a language contained in paragraph over party wall agreement and, because they do not understand, took us to court."

Mr. Falcone responded to this review as follows: "Thank you for the review Oscar. I was glad to be there for you, when your neighbors sued you in District Court an effort to prevent you from putting an addition onto your home. They were relentless and believed strongly in their case. They tried to use all their financial resources to wear you out. After motions and a multi-day hearing with testimony from your architect and project manager we were able to overcome the testimony of the neighbors and the developer. Judge Romeo finally saw things our way, and in the end she ruled in your favor. I am very pleased with the results obtained for you in this real estate litigation matter involving the interpretation of restrictions contained in the Party Wall Agreement for your fourplex. Good luck to you in the completion of the project!"

"Bill worked very hard on my case. He made sure to answer all my questions during the case, even helped me with a few other things after the case was done he never gave up even took me to lunch a few times.
– Personal Injury client, Buffalo, NY 2011.

Mr. Falcone responded to this review as follows: "Thank you Shawn. I enjoyed serving as your lawyer and becoming acquainted with you as we worked on your complex Personal Injury Lawsuit. In fact, I listed your case on this site as it was one of my biggest recoveries for any client, and one of my proudest accomplishments. We had to overcome some tough odds to succeed, and we did it!”

"Bill was very helpful in the DUI case that he was hired for. Very trustworthy and I feel he did excellent job."
– Dillon, CO - DUI 3rd client - 2011 

"I never have used an attorney, and really wasn't comfortable with going to an attorney. I wasn't sure how to handle my situation, and met with Bill just to ask questions. Bill knew what my alternatives were, and was very up front and honest about how he worked. Bill also handled all the details that take so much time. For example dealing with an insurance company which is very frustrating. I would have never gotten what I deserved if I would have handled this on my own. I am much more knowledgeable now, and would recommend Bill as a Lawyer that will help you in a challenging time."

Mr. Falcone responded to this review as follows: "Thank you Rose. I really enjoyed getting to know you and working on your behalf to answer all your questions and maximize your recovery on your Colorado injury case."

"Our company is extremely pleased with Bill's performance and handling of our legal matters. Bill had not only good probable forecasting insight but was able to quickly, accurately asses our contracts, improve upon them as well as renegotiate with our clients on our behalf giving us much better footing and positioning."

"I hired Bill Falcone to represent me in a dispute with my health insurance company. He was very knowledgeable about the issue, was persistent in his exchanges with the insurance company, and we eventually reached a very favorable outcome. The fee that I paid Mr. Falcone was reasonable and well worth it.
Bill also represented my husband and I in the sale of our business. The input he provided was very helpful before the sale, and his expertise during the closing process was invaluable. His ability to work well with the landlord, the buyer and their attorneys helped to ensure a smooth and successful deal."
– Annie Holton, Owner at Pug Ryan's Steakhouse & Brewery - February 17, 2010

I find Bill to be professional, highly attentive to detail, involved, caring and responsive. He is an asset to the DBA and the Town of Dillon."

Sample Personal Injury Recoveries

Avvo: William Robert Falcone’s Legal Cases:

Cherry v. Howell, Mayberry and JAO Properties

Case Conclusion Date: October 15, 2014

Practice Area: Personal Injury

Outcome: $200,000

Description: Plaintiff's shoulder was dislocated in an auto accident when the other driver went through a red light in snowy conditions. The Plaintiff had a delay in his treatment, as he did not have health insurance, and thought his shoulder would get better. He also had a subsequent accident that complicated matters. Plaintiff eventually needed shoulder surgery. He returned to work, but has some continued problems.

Schlunsen v. Milton

Case Conclusion Date: October 1, 2014

Practice Area: Personal Injury

Outcome: $160,000*

Description: The Plaintiff was injured in an Auto Accident that was the other driver's fault. He sustained a badly fractured wrist that had to be treated with internal fixation surgery. The Plaintiff had a good recovery and returned to work without restriction. (* The recovery included the other driver's bodily injury policy limits, and underinsurance benefits that were offset for medical payments that were also made by Plaintiff's UM carrier.)

Brownson v. McFarren

Case Conclusion Date: June 1, 2014

Practice Area: Personal Injury

Outcome: $220,000

Description: Brownson was injured in a skier/skier collision and sustained a tibial plateau fracture that required surgery. The other skier's homeowner's insurance company denied liability for the claim. My office commenced a lawsuit in Summit County Colorado to force a large settlement of this personal injury claim.

Stolz v. Tiger Run Resort

Case Conclusion Date: March 26, 2014

Practice Area: Slip and Fall Accident

Outcome: $175,000

Description: My client injured her lower back while stepping into a raised hot tub at Tiger Run Resort in Breckenridge, CO. We obtained surveillance video of her fall. After having an expert review the scene, we claimed that the regulations governing hot tubs required a handrail going into the hot tub, and that the handrail would have prevented or reduced the victim's injury. Despite my client's good recovery following back surgery, we claimed lost wages, past and future, as she was unable to return to her strenuous job at US Airways. These damages were evaluated by an economist. The case settled at mediation.

Doe v. Schaefer

Case Conclusion Date: September 3, 2012

Practice Area: Personal Injury

Outcome: $63,000

Description: Doe was injured when Schaefer's unleashed dog bit her hand while she was jogging on a mountain trail. Doe also had her dog with her, but hers was on a leash. The dogs proceeded to fight each other after the bite. Schaefer initially denied responsibility. He claimed Doe's dog must have bit her when Doe tried to separate the dogs. We demonstrated that Schaeffer's version was not true. He did not see the incident as he had let his dog roam far away from him. We also demonstrated that Schaefer's dog was the aggressor based upon statements Schaefer made to the police. This forced a settlement with Schaefer's homeowner's insurance company before the filing of a lawsuit.

Goodwin v. Bush

Case Conclusion Date: July 26, 2007

Practice Area: Personal Injury

Outcome: $90,000 arbitration award

Description: Plaintiff sustained a herniated disc injury, that did not necessitate surgery, after being rear ended at a traffic light. Defendant disputed causation claiming the accident was low impact. Following a full hearing before a three-member arbitration panel, Plaintiff was awarded $90,000 for her damages.

Edin v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, Akrochem Corporation, Welco Equipment, LLC, Nissan Motor Company LTD

Case Conclusion Date: September 8, 2005

Practice Area: Personal Injury

Outcome: Very Large Settlement with Maintenance Co, et al.

Description: Plaintiff sustained an amputation and crush injury to his hand while operating a forklift. The forklift slid on a wet floor while the Plaintiff was turning and he was sliding off the seat, about to hit his head on the butt end of a large door, when he reached his hand out to the door to push himself back into the seat. The forklift then slid around into his arm and hand and crushed it against the door, virtually ripping it off. In discovery, it was learned that the equipment maintenance company has recently replaced the manufacturer's seat with a seat that did not have "hip restraints" that would have kept Plaintiff from sliding out of the seat. The Plaintiff's employer was third-partied into the case on the basis of Plaintiff's grave injury and their failure to train Plaintiff and provide him with a safe workplace. Nissan manufactured the forklift, and did not contribute to the settlement, but did provide an affidavit from their engineer relative to the seat design and the impropriety of the replacement seat. The employer and forklift maintenance company negotiated the large settlement on their behalf at a Federal Court mediation. Goodyear and Achrochem were customers of Plaintiff's employer who were believed to have some responsibility for the water on the floor, and contributed only minimally to the settlement.

Bradbury

Case Conclusion Date: April 3, 2001

Practice Area: Personal Injury

Outcome: Significant Confidential Settlement

Description: Plaintiff was using a sledge hammer marketed as a striking tool to dislodge a jack hammer bit that was lodged in concrete. A piece of steel from the face of the hammer broke off and flew into Plaintiff's eye. Plaintiff lost all vision in the eye and, after infections and complications, had to have an evisceration and coral implant inset into his eye ball. A significant confidential settlement was reached with the manufacturer, due to the alleged failure to properly temper or market the hammer.

Johnson

Practice Area: Personal Injury

Outcome: $150,000 arbitration award

Description: Plaintiff sustained a back injury, which later necessitated surgery, when she fell on a step while exiting a burning building. The building owner was alleged to have been involved in the setting of the fire, which he adamantly denied. In fact, he was successful in obtaining insurance coverage for his fire damage claim at a prior trial against his insurer. It was also alleged that the step the Plaintiff fell on was defective and did not meet building code requirements. Following an arbitration heard by a three-member panel, Plaintiff was awarded $150,000 for her damages.

Camacho

Practice Area: Personal Injury

Outcome: $100,000

Description: Plaintiff sustained a fractured femur in an auto accident involving a drunk driver. The case was settled when Defendant agreed to pay his full $100,000 policy limits.

Schultz

Description: Plaintiff sustained a fractured wrist, jaw, and nose from an auto accident. The Defendant driver was convicted of DWI and a settlement was reached for his full policy limits.

Carmona

Practice Area: Personal Injury

Outcome: $250,000 Settlement

Description: Plaintiff sustained a partial loss of hearing in an automobile accident.

Baker v. Hess, and Twin Village Veterans' Association

Practice Area: Personal Injury

Outcome: Large settlement

Description: Plaintiff sustained multiple trauma when Hess went through a stop sign and struck Plaintiff who was riding his motorcycle. Plaintiff died of a pulmonary embolism 1 month after the accident, leaving a wife and children as surviving dependents. Defendant Hess had been drinking at the nearby Veteran's Association's VFW Post. The accident was witnessed by a police officer who immediately saw that Hess was intoxicated. He was charged and pled guilty to DWI. The successful settlement of this case hinged largely upon an insurance issue as to the VFW which had an exclusion in their liability policy for dram shop claims. I put the VFW on notice of our dram shop claim and the VFW forwarded the letter to their carrier, who failed to disclaim in a timely manner. Upon the making of a declaratory judgment action the insurer tried to disclaim. However, at the urging of private counsel for the VFW, and counsel assigned to represent the VFW, the carrier conceded that they had to provide coverage for the dram shop claim despite the policy exclusion. Shortly thereafter, the case was settled for the driver's $100,000 policy limits and for the majority of the $500,000 CGL policy limits of the VFW.
