Denver Injury Attorney – Personal Injury Overview – Burg Simpson

Personal Injury Overview- Colorado Personal Injury Lawyer - Burg SimpsonThey don’t happen often, but an accident can change a life quickly. Years of damage can be done in just a matter of seconds.

A traffic accident can be particularly devastating. In the blink of an eye, your life, or those of your loved ones, can change forever. In fact, early 2016 numbers suggest it was the deadliest year on the road in nearly a decade, with the National Safety Council estimating that roughly 40,000 people died in auto accidents last year, a 6 percent jump over 2015 and a 14 percent leap since 2014 – the biggest two-year increase in more than 50 years. A Colorado personal injury lawyer can help!

A single misstep on an uncleared patch of ice on the way to lunch can sideline you for months. Believe it or not, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration says falls are responsible for 15 percent of all accidental deaths – second only to traffic accidents.

An untrained dog can surprise you on your morning walk, leaping out at you from the bushes before sinking its teeth into your leg. According to the Center for Disease Control, dogs bite 4.5 million people every year. In short, one out of every 72 people will get bit by a dog this year.

These are just a few examples of accidents anyone can run into on any given day. The damage from any of these events — both physical and psychological — could linger for years. It can be a frightening, confusing, and often-frustrating time.

No matter how you’ve been hurt, the Denver personal injury lawyers at Burg Simpson are here to help you get the compensation and peace of mind you deserve so you can focus on recovering and rebuilding your life.
