Types of Colorado Personal Injury Matters We Handle
Personal injury law encompasses many types of accidents and incidents. Many personal injury cases are complex, involving multiple defendants and specialized laws. Hiring a Lakewood injury lawyer will ensure your rights are protected. Some of the most common cases we handle involve the following.
Were you involved in an auto accident caused by another driver’s negligence? We routinely represent clients for all types of auto accidents, including rear-end collisions, head-on accidents, rollovers, and more.
Accidents involving large trucks often involve serious to catastrophic injuries. Pursuing a claim for damages can be complicated as there are typically multiple defendants. Furthermore, there are specific laws and regulations that govern the trucking industry, and these laws could significantly impact your case.
Even with proper safety gear, motorcycle accidents can be devastating. In many accidents, the motorcycle rider’s body makes a direct impact with the other vehicle. There are many stereotypes about motorcycle riders and accidents, which is why you need an attorney who has experience representing clients for motorcycle injuries.
Slip and falls are a common type of premises liability case. These accidents can occur anywhere, including someone else’s home, a sidewalk, a parking lot, a business, and more. Property owners owe a duty to visitors to keep their premises free from hazardous conditions. Spilled liquids, uneven carpets, broken stair rails, and virtually any unexpected object on the floor can lead to a slip and fall.
Product liability cases involve defective products. When you buy a product or are fitted with a medical device, you trust that it’s going to work as expected. The last thing you anticipate is that you will suffer bodily harm by using the item. Unfortunately, there are many defective products on the market. They can range from everyday household items to automobiles. Dangerous medications can also fall under product liability.
Medical malpractice encompasses a wide range of medical errors and issues, including hospital negligence, misdiagnosis, surgical errors, birth injuries, medication errors, anesthesia errors, and more. Having an attorney with a medical background is crucial in these types of cases as the defendants will vigorously fight against any malpractice allegations.
Catastrophic injuries are some of the most complex cases to resolve. These typically involve claims for spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, disfigurement, permanent scarring, and more. Insurance companies often undervalue these claims, not including compensation for lifetime pain and suffering, future medical expenses, etc. You should never agree to a settlement or sign a release of all claims without speaking with an attorney first.
Construction sites are notoriously dangerous, and not just for the workers. Passersby can also be injured at a construction site. Common accidents at construction sites involve scaffolding collapses, falls, equipment malfunctions, explosions, electrocutions, and more.
When someone passes away from their injuries, certain surviving family members may be able to bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party. Wrongful death claims focus on the surviving family member’s damages, such as loss of companionship and loss of financial support.
