At Gerash Steiner Blanton, P.C., we have years of experience assisting injured victims just like you.
What Types of Boulder Personal Injury Matters We Handle
Numerous types of accidents and incidents fall under the broad practice area of personal injury law. Many injury claims can be complicated to resolve because various specific laws and rules apply, depending on the type of case. With so many variables at play, you need a bold legal advocate on your side. Retaining a Boulder personal injury attorney is one way to make sure that you get the compensation you need for your injuries.
Here are some of the most common types of personal injury cases we handle.
We handle all types of auto accident claims, including rear-end collisions, head-on accidents, sideswipe impacts, rollovers, and more. It’s crucial to seek medical treatment following a car accident, even if you don’t think your injuries are that serious. You could have internal injuries that aren’t visible.
Claims involving large trucks are often complicated due to special rules and regulations governing commercial truck operations. Many victims are left with catastrophic injuries, and there may be multiple defendants and causes of action that should be pursued.
Motorcycle riders are especially prone to severe injuries in an accident, given the lack of protection other motorists have in passenger vehicles. Unfortunately, there are also problematic stereotypes regarding motorcycle riders, which is why retaining an experienced attorney is essential if you want your claim to succeed.
Slip and falls can occur anywhere, including businesses, sidewalks, and private residences. Property owners have a duty to maintain their premises to keep them safe and free from hazards. Issues such as spilled liquids, loose or uneven flooring, broken stair railings, and more can lead to accidents. If you suffered injuries in a slip and fall, you could have a valid premises liability claim.
When you purchase a product or take medication, you expect that these products are safe and will work as marketed. However, many defective products make it to the market, despite safety tests. A defective product can include items such as a child’s toy, household appliances, medical devices, automobiles, and more.
Medical malpractice claims are very complex, which is why having an attorney with in-depth medical knowledge is a great advantage in such cases. Medical malpractice cases can stem from medical errors regarding birth injuries, hospital negligence, surgical errors, misdiagnosis, and more.
Retaining a skilled Boulder personal injury lawyer is crucial in any case involving catastrophic injuries, such as brain injuries, scarring, disfigurement, spinal cord injuries, and the like. These claims are complicated to put a value on because there is future medical treatment, permanent disability, and a lifetime of pain and suffering to consider. Insurance companies almost always undervalue these claims. That is why you should never agree to a settlement or sign a release of all claims without speaking with an attorney first.
Construction sites are dangerous places, not only for the workers but those people passing by. Common types of accidents at a construction site include equipment malfunction, scaffolding collapse, explosions, building collapse, and more.
When someone passes away from injuries sustained in a personal injury accident, specific family members may have the legal right to bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible parties. Available damages in a wrongful death case focus on the damages of the surviving family members. Recovery in a wrongful death claim may include compensation for loss of financial support, loss of companionship, loss of parental guidance, and more.
