CATASTROPHIC INJURIES

Our experienced Denver personal injury claim lawyers handle the most serious and catastrophic injury cases involving but not limited to:

  • traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries
  •  severe back, neck, shoulder, and knee injuries
  •  burns, scars, and disfigurement
  •  amputations and broken bones
  • other severe and disabling injuries

Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) may occur if a victim hits his or her head during an accident. There are three types of TBI, including mild, moderate and severe. Mild TBI, also known as concussions, may result in a loss of consciousness, but this is not always the case. However, with moderate or severe TBI, the patient will always lose consciousness for a few minutes, hours or even days or weeks. Depending on the severity of the TBI, victims could be permanently impaired or require long-term therapy. Brain injuries often occur as a result of motor vehicle accidents, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, and bicycle accidents. If you are injured in one of these accidents, personal injury attorneys can help you file the necessary claims and negotiate with the insurance companies to reach the settlement you deserve.

Back, Neck, Shoulder and Knee Injuries

Because shoulders and knees are such mobile joints, they are more susceptible to injury. Common traumatic shoulder injuries include dislocation or torn rotator cuffs, while common traumatic knee injuries include ligament tears, dislocation, fractures, and meniscus tears. These injuries often occur as a result of a car accident or slip and fall incident, where the property owner would be held liable under premises liability laws. If you have suffered any of these injuries, seek representation from personal injury lawyers who are well-versed in personal injury law. The legal process can be difficult to understand and negotiating with an insurance company is never an easy task. That’s why it’s best to trust a lawyer with years of experience to handle these cases for you.

Neck and back injuries can be painful and disruptive. It is very hard and oftentimes impossible to function in your everyday life when such an important part of your body is injured. Common traumatic neck injuries include spinal cord damage, vertebral fracture, disk injury or pinched nerves, while common traumatic back injuries include damage to nerves, slipped or ruptured disks and fractures.

Burns

There are different types of burn injuries caused by exposure to different types of sources. For example, the most common types of burn injuries are injuries that are caused by fire, steam, or exposure of the skin to a hot object or liquid. These types of burns are often caused during accidents, or in the workplace. Victims may also suffer from electrical burns when they come into contact with live wires or other electrical sources. Victims may suffer from chemical burns if they come into contact with hazardous solvents or chemicals. These solvents or chemicals could be in liquid, gas or solid form, and the consequences of such injuries can include nerve damage, serious scarring, or even blindness if the chemical has splashed into the person’s eyes. Some of these types of burn injuries can involve not just the upper epidermis of the skin, but also several deeper skin layers as well as other parts of the body. For example, a serious burn that is caused by exposure to fire can singe the nerves, and damage lungs because of the smoke that is inhaled. There may also be harm to the muscles and blood vessels.

 Amputations

Some of the most devastating injuries that a person can suffer involve the loss of a limb. Traumatic amputations can occur as a result of motorcycle, truck and auto accidents, workplace accidents, and other types of accidents. However, they are most often the result of workplace accidents and auto accidents.

Lower extremity amputations can restrict mobility, preventing persons from being able to walk about as they did before. Amputations of hands and fingers and upper extremity amputations can also limit the manual tasks that the person can perform.

The consequences of amputations can be devastating for a person’s productivity. He may no longer be able to work, and may longer be able to return to the job that he did before the injury. He may have to be retrained for some other job which may not be as well-paying.

Also equally devastating are the mental and psychological consequences of an amputation. Losing a body limb or part of the body, can have a tremendous and detrimental effect on the person’s psyche, contributing to feelings of depression, anxiety, loss of self-esteem, and other symptoms of psychological impact.

In some cases, a person may be able to use prosthetic limbs to replace the amputated limb. The good news is that prosthetic technology has advanced tremendously, and new aids make it much easier for persons to perform the tasks that they were able to perform earlier before the amputation.
