WHAT IS PERSONAL INJURY?

Have you sustained an injury in a car accident and need a lawyer? Did you slip on some spilled milk and fall at the grocery store? Or has something else left you injured? In a court of law, a personal injury is defined as any harm done to someone by the act – or failure to act – of another party. This can include a physical injury, damage to one’s reputation, the loss of a legal right or even one’s emotional well-being. That injury can be further classified as willful (intentional) or negligent.

Personal injuries can be caused by drunk driving accidents, semi-truck crashes, and other catastrophic events. These kinds of accidents can have life changing consequences that result in traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries.

If you have experienced an injury through the carelessness of another party, you could be eligible for damages for your pain, suffering, and loss. The Denver personal injury lawyers at Burg Simpson have over 4 decades of experience fighting for personal injury victims. We have also won over 100 cases in excess of 1 million dollars each, totaling a billion dollars.
