Types of Longmont Personal Injury Matters We Handle

Personal injury law covers a wide range of accidents and incidents. Many personal injury claims can be challenging to resolve because there are specific rules and regulations that apply.

Retaining a Longmont personal injury attorney ensures you have an advocate on your side who knows how to present the strongest case possible on your behalf. 

Want to know more about the most common types of personal injury matters our firm handles? Read on to learn more about personal injury law in Colorado.

Car Accidents

We handle all types of auto accident claims, including rear-end collisions, head-on accidents, sideswipe impacts, rollovers, and more. Car accidents can cause devastating injuries that require expensive medical treatment and prevent you from working. Our attorneys have helped car accident victims recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and more, providing these clients with the financial support they need to move forward after their injuries. 

Truck Accidents

Claims involving large trucks are often complex due to special rules and regulations governing commercial truck operations. For example, there are federal rules limiting how many consecutive hours a truck driver can drive. Drivers who exceed these federal limits put countless lives at risk. However, truck drivers are not always solely responsible for truck accidents. Trucking companies, cargo loading companies, and truck manufacturers can also be held responsible for accidents they cause. Truck accidents typically involve multiple defendants and causes of action to pursue, which is why it’s best to hire an experienced attorney to represent you.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle riders are particularly vulnerable in accidents because motorcycles do not provide the same protection that passenger vehicles do. Because motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries, injured motorcyclists face larger medical bills and losses. Retaining an experienced Longmont personal injury lawyer can help you recover all of the compensation you are entitled to so that you do not have to pay for someone else’s negligence. 

Premises Liability

Slip-and-fall accidents can occur anywhere, including businesses, sidewalks, and private residences. Property owners have a legal duty to maintain premises free from hazards such as spilled liquids, loose flooring, broken stair railings, and more. Proving liability requires demonstrating the property owner knew or should have known about the hazard and failed to take proper steps to fix the issue or warn visitors. If you have suffered injuries in a slip and fall, our team of experienced attorneys can help you gather and present evidence to support your Longmont personal injury case.

Product Liability

When purchasing a product, you expect it to be safe and free of defects that can cause harm. However, some products are designed or manufactured in a way that puts consumers at risk. If you have been injured by a defective product, our Longmont personal injury lawyers can help you file a product liability claim against the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer responsible for the defect.

Defective products run the gamut from household appliances and children’s toys to vehicles and medical devices. Harm from defective products may not be immediately apparent either. For example, you might discover years later that your cancer or other terminal illness resulted from long-term exposure to harmful chemicals. An experienced Longmont personal injury lawyer can investigate your case to determine if a defective product caused your injury. 

Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one in a preventable accident is a tragedy that no family should have to endure. Our Longmont personal injury attorneys understand the emotional toll a wrongful death takes and are here to help you get the justice and compensation you deserve.

Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries can be caused by nearly any type of incident. Examples of catastrophic injuries include paralysis, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputation, and severe burn injuries. These types of injuries require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation, and they can have life-long consequences. A Longmont personal injury lawyer can help you pursue compensation for future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

Medical Malpractice

When you visit a medical professional, you trust them with your life. Luckily, most doctors and medical staff do their jobs flawlessly. However, mistakes can happen. And when mistakes are caused by a medical provider’s negligence, you are entitled to pursue compensation. Examples of medical malpractice can include birth injuries, delayed diagnosis, misdiagnosis, surgical errors, and more. Attorney Eric Steiner, M.D.’s experience gives our team an invaluable edge when evaluating and pursuing medical malpractice claims in Colorado.
