The personal injury lawyers at Burg Simpson represent clients who have suffered from catastrophic personal injuries. A catastrophic injury is one that results in the victim having permanent damage. Examples of these types of severe injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Electrocution
  • Amputations
  • Multiple bone fractures
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Neurological disorders
  • Burn injuries that result in disfigurement or severe scarring
  • Severe ligament damage
  • Loss of sight or other senses
  • Paralysis
  • Birth injury

The Aftermath of a Catastrophic Personal Injury

In addition to the pain associated with these types of life-altering injuries, victims who have catastrophic personal injury cases may also experience limited mobility and significant cognitive issues. The aftermath associated with these severe injuries can include symptoms that can last for months or even years. Financial hardship may also be attributed to catastrophic injury cases due to the high costs associated with medical and rehabilitation care. Not only can these types of severe injuries reduce or eliminate the injured person’s capacity to earn future income, but their injury can also affect a family member who has had to leave his or her place of employment to care for their injured loved one.

Common Causes of Catastrophic Personal Injuries

Many catastrophic injuries are the result of another party’s negligent actions or inactions. Common causes of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Motor Vehicle Collisions
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Work-Related Injuries
  • Slip and Fall Incidents
  • Pedestrian Injuries

How Burg Simpson Can Help

Obtaining the assistance of an experienced catastrophic injury attorney may help you bring a successful claim. Generally, a highly experienced catastrophic injury attorney may help you to:

  • Determine Liability

At Burg Simpson, your lawyer may assist you in determining your case value and the parties responsible for your injuries.

  • Collect Evidence

Your attorney may also help you collect evidence. This will include the names and contact information of the parties involved and any witnesses, photos of the scene, your medical records, and the costs associated with your treatment.

  • Negotiate with the Insurance Adjustor

At Burg Simpson, when your lawyer has obtained the information necessary to assign a value to your case, he or she will seek to secure a fair settlement by engaging in the negotiations with the insurance company.

When a catastrophic injury has occurred, the victim’s recovery can be a lengthy and expensive process. Unfortunately, the insurance company will often seek to take advantage of an injured party’s uncertainty during this challenging time and work to settle the personal injury case as soon as possible and for far less than the victim deserves.

When you retain an experienced personal injury attorney at Burg Simpson, your lawyer will work to negotiate the compensation you deserve. If the insurance company does not offer a fair settlement based on your case value, your lawyer is ready to fight for you in a court of law.

  • Obtain Compensation

Every catastrophic personal injury case is different, and damages can vary widely. However, plaintiffs in the State of Colorado may be eligible to recover damages for the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation
  • Medical equipment
  • Home modifications
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future income
