Attorney Ted Bills is a personal injury attorney with extensive experience in negotiation and litigation. He is an aggressive negotiator who persists until he obtains the settlement or outcome that best meets his clients' needs, which is usually significantly more than an insurance company's initial offer.
Many attorneys shy away from saying they are trial lawyers because they have fallen into the trap of tort reform and the marketing efforts implored by the insurance industry.
These efforts are made by the insurance industry in order to make trial lawyers look bad and be viewed as the cause of society's problems, such as the rise of insurance rates and frivolous lawsuits. But Attorney Bills proudly represent injured victims and gives them a fighting chance at obtaining compensation.
Ted strongly believes that his job is to be an advocate for injured people. He is fully capable of negotiating excellent and fair settlements out of court, but he is not afraid to fight relentlessly for a just verdict when the case and client require it.
Firsthand Medical Experience & Knowledge of Bodily Injuries
In college, Ted worked at the local city-owned Memorial Hospital, which is now run by the University of Colorado Health. There, he worked in the ER and trauma center assisting doctors and nurses with direct patient care services. He also worked in orthopedics, where he assisted orthopedic surgeons with surgical procedures for broken bones, spinal cord injuries, fractures, total knees surgeries, hip surgeries, and more.
Ted also performed casting, splinting, and traction and worked in physical therapy where he helped people learn to walk again. Basically, whatever the surgeon needed help doing, Ted did.
Because Ted had to transcribe, read, and interpret physician orders, he can read and understand doctor notes and records. This, as you can imagine, is important when representing a personal injury client who has a multitude of bodily injuries. Mr. Bills knows medical terminology, human anatomy, and human physiology, which is a huge advantage when handling personal injury cases in which adequate medical coverage is being withheld or denied.
Ted Bills received his undergraduate degree in business from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. When he took business law, Ted knew right then that if he got a law degree, he could use his medical background to help injured people in a different way than most other lawyers. In law school, he emphasized his studies in the area of torts and received a special national award for his outstanding performance in the area of tort law. He received his law degree from Washburn University School of Law in Topeka, Kansas, graduating in 2003.
Upon admission to the Colorado Bar, Attorney Bills was hired by a preeminent insurance defense firm that handled mostly trucking litigation defense for insurers of truck drivers in the states of Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and Wyoming. Here, Ted learned all the tricks of the trade regarding what insurance companies do to prevent exposure and lower the amount of money they have to pay an injured person. Because Ted wanted to represent injured parties instead of insurance companies, he opened his own personal injury law firm.
