Brain & Spinal Cord Injuries
Car Accident Injury Cases: Catastrophic Injuries
When a serious car accident occurs, severe injuries including spinal cord injuries and brain injuries are far too common. These injuries are often termed “catastrophic” as the victim will never again have the quality of life that they enjoyed prior to the accident. When another party is responsible for the accident, it is necessary to contact a Denver car accident lawyer to assist in seeking compensation in these very serious injury cases. At Colt Law Firm, P.C., our car accident lawyer will assist you in managing the lawsuit or claim against the responsible party’s insurance company. If criminal negligence was involved, it may be possible to seek punitive damages beyond medical costs, future medical and nursing care, loss of income, future financial losses and pain and suffering, among others.
Brain & Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer
The outcome of a legal action against the liable party is critical to the future and health of the victim. In very serious brain injury cases, the innocent victim can suffer severe damage and in the worst cases can lose all ability to function in life, and will require nursing care for the rest of their lives. We all hope for miracles in such cases, and as newer treatments are discovered, having the financial ability to access these treatments is only fair when another individual caused the injury.
The same is true of serious spinal injuries, as the victim can suffer terrible loss of ability, either paraplegia or quadriplegia. These conditions change the individual’s life forever. They will face many challenges and changes in lifestyle, as well as physical problems that are part of any spinal injury. Our legal team understands fully how important the outcome of the case is to the health and future of the victim and their families, and acts accordingly. We will seek compensation measured against all the damages suffered in the case, both economic and non-economic. The emotional toll is severe in any such case, and the settlement, verdict or judgment will likely be extremely high. We will fight to ensure that our client gets the compensation that truly reflects the serious nature of these injuries. Contact a car accident attorney if you or a loved one has suffered brain or spinal cord injury through the negligent driving of another person.
