Attorney Profile

A native of Boulder, Colorado, John G. Taussig is an attorney at Taussig & Smith. From the firm's office that is based in his home town, he divides his practice among personal injury and wrongful death litigation, bad faith and other types of insurance coverage disputes, and workers' compensation matters. Representing clients throughout the region, Mr. Taussig is admitted to practice before all Colorado state courts, the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit.

In his personal injury practice, Mr. Taussig provides assistance to people who have incurred losses due to the negligence of other parties. His cases have involved defective products, truck and other motor vehicle crashes, nursing home abuse, and premises liability. Mr. Taussig's successful track record in this area of the law has included his obtaining in 2007 what was at the time the largest verdict for a motor vehicle accident ever awarded by a Boulder County jury.

Mr. Taussig also helps clients who have been injured on the job and who are seeking their rightful benefits under their employer's insurance coverage. He often assists with the preparation of the initial claim, helping to ensure that it contains all necessary information and that it is filed on a timely basis, and he advocates on behalf of his clients in the event that the claim is disputed or denied. In his insurance coverage practice, Mr. Taussig works with policy holders whose claims have been delayed or turned down in bad faith.

Mr. Taussig's courtroom skills have been enhanced by his participation in the Trial Lawyer's College, founded by the legendary Wyoming litigator Gerry Spence. He is a member of several legal organizations, including the American Association for Justice and the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association.
