Burg Simpson Represents Personal Injury Plaintiffs

If you have been injured due to the carelessness of another party, you could be entitled to compensation for the pain, suffering, and loss that were the result of your experience. The Denver personal injury lawyers at Burg Simpson have been successfully advocating for personal injury victims for more than 4 decades.

What is a Personal Injury?

Having sustained a personal injury means that you have suffered physical or psychological harm. For example:

  • You have suffered a personal injury if you broke your arm in an automobile accident, or incurred spinal trauma after a slip and fall following a snow storm.
  • You have suffered a personal injury if you are experiencing severe psychological symptoms such as extreme anxiety, sleeplessness, or despair following an accident.

Note: If you were involved in a very minor accident that caused only a slight amount of damage to your vehicle, and you did not suffer any significant physical or psychological damage, then you have not suffered a personal injury. When these kinds of instances occur, they are best handled through your insurance company or in small claims court.

Were your injuries caused by the negligence of another party?

In order to file a personal injury lawsuit or claim, your injury must have been caused by the carelessness of another party. When one party has behaved in a manner that has caused harm to another, then the negligent party will usually be held liable for the damages to the injured party.

Am I Entitled to Damages?

“Damages” is the legal term for compensation, or the amount of money that is awarded to an injured person to compensate for their injuries and/or losses.

If your personal injury attorney can prove that another party acted negligently, the court may award you, or an insurance company may agree to pay you, a sum of money that takes into account the economic and non-economic damages you suffered as a result of your injury.

Some of these damages are economic, and are relatively easy to calculate:

    • Medical expenses
    • Lost wages
    • Reduction in earning capacity

But non-economic, damages, such as pain and suffering and/or a diminished quality of life, are more difficult to calculate. When you have non-economic damages, you may require the expertise of an experienced personal injury lawyer to assist you in the calculation of reasonable estimates:

    • Physical and/or psychological suffering
    • Reduction in overall earning capacity
    • Diminished quality of life
    • Loss of companionship
