Greeley Personal Injury & Accident Lawyer
Serving Greeley & the Greater Colorado Area for Three Decades
I’ve been a personal injury lawyer handling cases in Greeley and all over Colorado for over 25 years. I focus entirely on accident law, and have handled tens of thousands of accident injury cases. I’ve seen it all, and I have the experience for a case like yours.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, give me a call at (970) 356-5800 or (800) ROSEN-911 for a free consultation about your case.
Consultations are 100% free, no exceptions!
It’s very important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after the accident, before you talk to anyone at an insurance company. Insurance companies are usually not on your side, and are going to be looking out for their own interests. This could mean rushing you to make a quick, uninformed decision that could cost you dearly. It’s my job to protect accident injury victims from insurance companies trying to cut costs by denying or scaling down legitimate claims.

GreeleyFacts & Figures
Greeley, home to the University of Northern Colorado, is located an hour and a half north of Denver. Our population increased approximately 30 percent from 2000-2014, and in 2015 was listed at 101,000.
Although our city enjoys an average of 300 days of sunshine a year, the average total annual snowfall in Greeley is 41 inches, and the snowiest month is March.
All of Colorado’s metropolitan areas saw employment growth over last May, but Greeley posted the largest gains at 5.1 percent, followed by Denver-Aurora-Broomfield at 3 percent and Fort Collins at 2.4 percent, likely resulting in a significant increase of commuters on our roads.
We spend an average of 26 minutes commuting to work, which is similar to the national average, according to the Associated Press. Nearly 80 percent of us drive alone, while 11.7 percent carpool.
Fatal Accidents inGreeley
According to City-data.com, in 2014 Greeley had eight fatal accidents involving 14 vehicles; one fatal accident that involved drunken persons; eight fatalities; 15 persons involved in fatal accidents; and two pedestrians involved in fatal accidents.
Accidents happen, particularly due to the actions of negligent drivers on congested roads. For your information, here is a listing of some of the most dangerous intersections in our area:
- Colorado 14 and Weld County Road 31. In the past five years two people have died and several others severely injured in car crashes at this intersection, according to a Greeley Tribune report. Many of the crashes occurred after people travelling north on Weld 31 failed to stop at the stop sign at the road’s intersection with Colorado 14.
- S. 85 and Weld County Road 44. Weld County Traffic officials have called this the “worst intersection,” in Greeley, where an average 4.3 crashes occur per mile per year.
- The bike lane and the freeway on–ramp on North Greeley. At this intersection, as people are driving southbound 45-50 mph and preparing to merge onto the I-5 on ramp, there is also a designated bike lane directing riders to merge left across the freeway on-ramp in order to continue southbound toward Interstate Avenue. This intersection has proven to be extremely dangerous for both motorists and bicyclists.
Road and Construction Projects
Greeley’s 8th Avenue Corridor project is intended to link downtown Greeley and the University of Northern Colorado destinations with a pedestrian-friendly corridor that will provide easier access, greater visual appeal, and more interest in using this route to travel between the UNC campus and the central business district.
This is a five-year project broken down into phases. The first two phases commenced at 16th Street and 8th Avenue, and future phases are planned to progress north at each intersection.
Free Evening and Weekend Parking
Due to new businesses, more employees, as well as hotel and conference center construction projects and downtown events, we recently received improved parking options with the addition of over 1,600 free daytime, weekend, and evening parking lot spaces, plus free on-street parking.
Greeley Master Bicycle Plan
We have approximately 85 miles of in-town bike lanes. On May 5, 2014, the Greeley City Council approved the Greeley Master Bicycle Plan, The Road to Gold. The vision of the plan is that Greeley will be a gold level, bike-friendly community where bicycling is safe, accessible, and a common form of transportation and recreation. The plan is intended as a guiding document that will strengthen transportation choices throughout Greeley for years to come.
The Poudre River Trail
The Poudre River Trail is 21 miles of well-maintained, paved pathway intended for walking, cycling, running, roller-blading, and more. It extends from Island Grove Regional Park in Greeley to Colorado Highway 392 at Windsor, where it connected to the paved trail in Larimer County’s River Bluff’s Open Space. The Poudre River Trail is open to the public and provides information about many historical sites as well as educational opportunities along the trail.
