If you have been injured due to the actions of another person, you have the right to file a personal injury claim for compensation. The process you go through will depend on the nature and extent of your injuries, the type of claim you have, and the specifics of your individual case.
It is not that uncommon to be involved in a collision with a government vehicle. Workers employed by colleges and universities, the city, county, state, or the federal government may drive negligently and cause accidents, the same as any other drivers. But when a government vehicle is involved, the rules are different in a personal injury claim for compensation.
Peripheral nerve injury can cause pain, weakness, and numbness, usually in the hands or feet. It affects nerves in the body lying outside of the brain and spinal cord. These nerves are responsible for movement and sensation, as well as function of the glands and organs.
Colorado has been elevated to the second best place to live in the U.S., according to a survey published on 24/7 WallSt. This study showed that Colorado residents are likely to live longer, have healthier lives and enjoy a better quality of life. Our population is rapidly increasing, which may have its benefits, but it also means more traffic and traffic crashes.
Setting personal challenges and chasing after them is one of the most fulfilling aspects of life. Whether or not you cross the finish line, the willingness and the drive to succeed has a more lasting impact on your life than success ever could.
Structurally, our skeletons define us in a way that is both good and bad. Childbirth is harder with narrow, upright hips, but being able to use our arms has essentially allowed us to develop civilization. Bones are the body’s framework, joints and connective tissue hold them in place, and muscles allow the parts to move.
Orthopedic injuries are trauma or systemic damage, whether through disease or genetics, that affect this frame: bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscle. A broken bone may not seem that bad, but it can be terrible for you in the wrong situation. Untreated fractures and open wounds can lead to infection, compartment syndrome, and worse.
In short, these are serious injuries, and they need to be taken seriously. Especially by the people whose negligent actions caused them.
Responsibility is a heady thing. You’re given the freedom to make choices, but if you choose wrong, you must accept the consequences. We wish that every person who has been slapped with a DUI immediately realized what they were doing was dangerous and made a change. But many don’t, and for some people, the very first time they choose to drive while “buzzed” is the last time for someone else.
Colorado’s Eastern Plains experienced the first frost of the season on October 3rd, though the Front Range avoided the freezing drop (thanks to a stratus cloud cover). CBS Denver tells us that the average “first freeze” in Denver occurs on October 7th, thought the earliest freeze on record came September 8, 1962; the latest freeze came November 15, 1944.
We celebrate this local history by encouraging Coloradans to bundle up, enjoy the turning of the seasons, take a deep breath for the holidays, and drive extra-cautiously on snowy or slick roads. We see too many car accidents at our firm come winter, and we’d like to share some guidance for readers.
A car accident can occur when another driver suffers a medical emergency behind the wheel. In these cases, do you have the right to pursue damages by filing a lawsuit? Even when it is clear that the other driver was at fault, does the fact that they suffered a medical emergency make them immune to liability?
A car accident is a terrible experience, and even worse if you were injured. With the uncertain weather in Colorado, drivers face conditions that can be very dangerous, whether rain, snow, or icy road surfaces. If a driver hits you and claims the weather was to blame, what are your chances of achieving a settlement or a jury award in a lawsuit? The answer always lies in the facts.
