Personal Injury Testimonials

I was referred to Trent Ongert at Bloch & Chapleau by a friend and could not be more grateful for the guidance and support I received throughout my car accident case. Bloch & Chapleau obtained a $550,000 settlement for me! I most likely would have given up a long time ago due to the stress of having to deal with insurance companies on my own. The knowledge I gained alone was worth more than I can say. Trent and the firm did a fantastic job keeping me in the loop every step of the way, prepping me for upcoming meetings, and provided the guidance needed to make the best decisions possible during my case. I cannot thank Trent and the staff enough for being so organized and on top of everything to ensure a successful outcome. Thank you to everyone involved as I am truly grateful for the support, advice, and constant communication. Bloch & Chapleau has definitely earned a lifelong client!


I hired Bloch & Chapleau after I was hit from behind by an inexperienced skier and suffered severe injuries. Joe and Trent aggressively pursued my case and obtained witness affidavits that helped prove my case. When the insurance company initially didn’t offer me any money, Bloch & Chapleau filed a lawsuit and proved to the insurance company and its attorneys that the other skier caused the collision and my injuries. They obtained a $500,000 policy limits settlement, and Bloch & Chapleau never wavered in their pursuit of a policy limits settlement. Thank you Joe and Trent! I appreciate your hard work and the compassion you showed me throughout my case.  As an experienced skier and Summit County resident, I highly recommend Bloch & Chapleau



Thank you for your professionalism and persistence in pursuing my ski collision case. I am very pleased with the way you and the B&C staff handled it. I am totally satisfied with the result.

Hi Trent and Joe,

I cannot thank all of you enough for your help and generosity. It’s evident you all have worked so much and incredibly hard on my case. I don’t doubt it for a second. I think it’s just over 2 years of work. What you all have done for me is more than I thought would happen and I’m so grateful. Thank you for going above and beyond. You’ve helped me so much and thank you doesn’t seem like enough.

After getting nowhere with my prior attorney, I hired Bloch & Chapleau for my ski injury case due to their expertise in this area. Joe personally went to the scene of the collision with me to take photos and video, which was extremely helpful to my case. After winning our Motion for Punitive Damages against the Defendant, Bloch & Chapleau obtained a large settlement for me prior to trial. I appreciate the personal service Joe and Trent provided me. I can’t say enough great things about this firm! Thank you Bloch & Chapleau!

I hired Bloch & Chapleau for my ski injury case, and I am so glad I did. I communicated directly with Joe and Trent throughout my case, and always felt like my case was a priority to them. When the insurance company offered me very little money, Bloch & Chapleau filed a lawsuit and obtained a great settlement for me. I highly recommend Bloch & Chapleau.

Thank you to Joe and Trent for helping me recover a settlement against the drunk driver who ran a stop sign and drove over me while I was crossing the street. I was very impressed with the personal attention I received, as well as the firm’s expertise and professionalism throughout my case. I highly recommend hiring Bloch & Chapleau if you are injured by another person.

Bloch & Chapleau helped me recover the insurance policy limits of $305,000 against the skier who slammed into me at Breckenridge. Joe and Trent aggressively pursued my case, even when the insurance company initially refused to pay, and they obtained the policy limits settlement almost immediately after filing a lawsuit. I would highly recommend Bloch & Chapleau for a ski injury case. I was very impressed with their expertise and experience in this area of the law.

Very hard working people. They will pour their heart and soul into you. They helped ALOT!!! Hire them. You’ll be satisfied if not more.

Thank you again so much for everything you did to help me with my car accident case. If it wasn’t for you and everyone else there, I would have most likely not known there was another option and would’ve taken that $750 check and been left with all these injuries. What you guys do is amazing and I am sure you help so many people. I just wanted to let you know I appreciate all of your help Trent.
-William Vani

Joe and Trent,
I received the settlement check and I’m very grateful for your help with this case. I am very happy with the amount of money I received for my car accident case. Well done! Much appreciated.

Thank you Joe and Trent for helping me get a large settlement after I was hit head-on by a drunk driver on the interstate. I spent a week in the hospital and didn’t know where to turn for help. Bloch & Chapleau helped guide me through the process and provided helpful and professional advice throughout my case. They went the extra mile to make sure I received enough compensation to pay my staggering medical bills and for my pain and suffering. I can’t thank them enough.”

Bloch & Chapleau obtained a $285,000 settlement for me when I was severely injured in a horse riding incident without even having to file a lawsuit. The Colorado equine statute makes it very difficult for injured people to recover when they are injured on a horse, but Joe and Trent found an exception that applied to my case and allowed me to recover money. They worked diligently to investigate the facts of my case, including interviewing witnesses and obtaining critical affidavits, that ultimately helped prove my case. I would highly recommend Bloch & Chapleau.”

I was severely injured in a motor vehicle collision in Eagle County. Thankfully, I called Bloch & Chapleau. I was incredibly pleased with Joe’s and Trent’s work on my case. Thanks to their expertise and aggressive work, I received $325,000 from the insurance company. For anyone who has been in a car accident, you need to call Bloch & Chapleau. I definitely chose the right firm and highly recommend their services.

Bloch & Chapleau helped me when I was injured in a ski collision on Vail Mountain. Trent and Joe were very clear about the process and were very knowledgeable about the dynamics involved in a ski case. They told me what to expect, and delivered on my expectations. Because they worked hard on my ski collision case, I received $190,000. Thank you for helping me receive the compensation I needed.

After I was severely injured in a ski collision at Breckenridge Ski Resort, I called Bloch & Chapleau. I am very grateful for Trent’s and Joe’s work on my case. I was impressed with their knowledge of ski law. Joe met me at the accident site and was able to demonstrate through photos and videos that it was the other skier’s fault. Thank you both for your professionalism and hard work, which got me $150,000. Bloch & Chapleau is the right choice and I highly recommend Joe and Trent. Thank you both for being my strongest advocates!

I can’t recommend Joe and his team enough. They went above and beyond to make sure every angle of the case was thought out for the best possible outcome. They were honest, realistic and relentless. Joe and his team bring a wealth of expertise from all sides of the law, giving me the confidence they understood my case and what the other side might do to undermine it.
