Types of Personal Injury Claims
Serious accidents are not limited to any particular time or place; they can occur on the road, in a place of business, on the job, or even at home. If an accident is caused by the negligent or otherwise wrongful behavior of another person, victims may be entitled to compensation for any losses and expenses that stem from the incident. This compensation is oft-needed, as the injuries described below can debilitate and devastate victims and their families. For more information, contact injury attorney J. Todd Tenge, of the Boulder, Fort Collins, and Denver areas.
Neck and Back Injuries: Neck and back injuries cause a lot of pain and discomfort, as well as loss of range of motion. Sprains, strains, herniated discs, and fractured vertebrae are among the most common neck and back injuries.
Orthopedic Injuries: Orthopedic injuries include sprains or fractures, joint injuries, ligament or tendon tears, and repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
Spinal Cord Injuries: When the spinal cord is injured, it loses its ability to send messages from the brain to other parts of the body. Someone with a spinal cord injury may lose some or all movement and function below the point of injury.
Brain Injuries: A catastrophic injury, brain injuries occur when the head suffers trauma that disrupts the normal function of the brain. Brain injuries can lead to cognitive, sensory, communication, and/or behavioral problems.
Burn Injuries: Burn injuries range in severity and are classified in degrees – first, second, or third. The most severe burn injuries can extend deep enough into the skin to damage nerve endings, blood vessels, and even muscles.
Disfiguring Injuries: Disfiguring injuries include extensive scarring, wounds, amputation, or an injury that otherwise leaves a permanent visible reminder.
Paralysis: Often the result of a spinal cord injury, paralysis can affect the legs and/or arms on one or both sides of the body.
Wrongful Death: Families may file wrongful death claims after the loss of a loved one.
