Ethan A. McQuinn is a founding partner of Anderson, Hemmat & McQuinn LLC. Mr. McQuinn works both in the areas of personal injury as well as workers' compensation, with a special focus on personal injury litigation. As part of the litigation team, Mr. McQuinn oversees all major motions litigation practice. Throughout the course of a lawsuit, many legal issues are determined long before the attorney actually goes to trial. These issues are determined by written motions asking for a determination of law by the judge and affect the likelihood of a successful outcome at trial. Mr. McQuinn directs all aspects of these pre-trial written arguments. A quality motions litigation department ensures that that when the trial attorney enters the courtroom on the first day of trial, he is already positioned to win.
In addition, Mr. McQuinn directs all aspects of appellate practice at Anderson, Hemmat, & McQuinn LLC. He has been lead appellate counsel in some of the most ground-breaking cases in Colorado, including the radical transformation of Colorado wrongful death law, securities law and workers compensation claims. Even after a seasoned trial attorney wins a verdict in a case, the verdict is often appealed to a higher court by the opposing party. A strong appellate practice is integral to ensuring that a successful verdict at trial is not lost on appeal.
Mr. McQuinn graduated from Cedarville University in Ohio with a Bachelor's Degree and later earned his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Colorado Law School. As part of the litigation team, Mr. McQuinn played an integral role in trial preparations, and served as firm spokesman for several local television news interviews regarding the nationally reported case of Gonzales vs. Mascarenas, the action brought on behalf of a premature child born after a forced delivery due to a tragic automobile accident that resulted in a placental abruption and the untimely birth of the baby, whose gestational age was between 20 and 22 weeks. Mr. McQuinn served as co-trial counsel in that case as well as other significant personal injury cases in Colorado. Additionally, Mr. McQuinn participated in the only Colorado class action brought against Citigroup, Merrill Lynch, and Morgan Stanley for their role in the financial scandal that rocked the financial world in the early 2000's.
Mr. McQuinn was nominated as a “Rising Star” in the 2012 publication of Colorado’s Super Lawyers Magazine. Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection process is multi-phased and includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. Mr. McQuinn is also a member of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association, the Colorado Bar Association, and the Association of Trial Lawyers of America.

Let us help you answer the tough questions you may have about your case. If you don't find what you're looking for you can ask your question here any time.
Typically, a personal injury accident case will go to trial when a settlement agreement cannot be reached outside of courts. If the defendant in the personal injury case is refusing to offer a settlement that accurately reflects the extent of damages, then a trial might be the only option to secure maximum financial compensation.
The best way to know whether or not you should accept a personal injury settlement is to consult with an accident lawyer you trust. Insurance companies try to get claimants to settle quickly before they know how much they actually could get for their accident. Consider having your personal injury case evaluated by a Denver accident attorney from our law firm.
Anderson, Hemmat & McQuinn operates on a contingency fee basis. This is a "no recovery, no fee" guarantee which basically states that you do not owe us attorney fees until we obtain a verdict or settlement for you. To learn more about payment options, please call our experienced accident attorneys directly.
While it is not mandatory that you have legal representation for a personal injury case, it can be extremely beneficial. Many people are cut short of the financial compensation because they were not aware of how much they actually deserved for their extensive accident.
Many people do not go to the hospital after car accidents either because they think they are not injured or they fear they will have to pay out of pocket for the visit. Truthfully, many car accident injuries can go undetected and may not begin to bother the victim until days or even weeks after the accident. As a precaution, anyone involved in a moderate to serious car accident should go to the hospital for a physical evaluation. Most likely, this visit will be covered by insurance. Just be sure to keep record of the visit and the payment for the visit.
It can be difficult for a driver to know how much they're entitled to after a car accident. Many drivers accept the insurance company's first settlement offer because they trust that it's fair and will be enough to cover all accident-related expenses. This is not always the case. We encourage drivers to consult with a car accident attorney after a collision for a second opinion on how much your claim is worth. More often than not, insurance companies offer claimants far less than they actually deserve.
Colorado has comparative/contributory negligence laws. This means that even drivers who are partially at fault for accidents can recover compensation from insurance. However, this does not apply to drivers who are more than 50 percent at fault for the collision. For example, if the insurance adjusters decided that you were 20 percent at-fault and the other driver was 80 percent at-fault, then you could collect up to 80 percent from the other driver's insurance.
