Our Firm Handles Cases Across Colorado
Serious personal injuries can be life changing, putting you out of work for weeks, months, or even years while you face the burden of massive medical bills, pain and discomfort, ongoing physical and other therapies, and the loss of your income.
When someone else, or a corporation, has been negligent, careless, reckless, or malicious, they should be held responsible for the suffering, stress, and disruption to your life. That is the purpose of personal injury law and what Parker Lipman works to accomplish every day for our clients.
What Are Catastrophic Injuries?
Catastrophic injuries are severe, life-changing injuries that often have long-term or permanent consequences. These injuries typically result in profound physical, emotional, and financial challenges for both the injured person and their family. Common catastrophic injuries include:
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
TBIs can lead to cognitive impairments, memory loss, personality changes, and even a coma or persistent vegetative state.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Damage to the spinal cord can result in partial or complete paralysis, impacting mobility and daily life.
Loss of a limb can lead to physical and emotional hardships, requiring extensive medical care and rehabilitation.
Burn injuries may result in disfigurement, physical limitations, and significant emotional trauma.
Extensive fractures can lead to chronic pain, loss of mobility, and the need for multiple surgeries and rehabilitation.
Damage to internal organs may necessitate organ transplants, ongoing medical treatment, and altered lifestyles.
Vision or Hearing Loss
Loss of vision or hearing can profoundly affect a person's quality of life and independence.
Severe scarring or disfigurement can lead to social and emotional challenges, affecting self-esteem and relationships.
At Parker Lipman, we have handled many cases in which people were killed, paralyzed, endured traumatic brain injury, or suffered life-altering amputations. We know that your needs today are completely different from what they will be in five, ten, and twenty years. We conduct medical research and study the costs and benefits of today’s best treatments. We even analyze emerging medical developments to ensure that you receive adequate compensation for your injuries.
We determine what your needs will be for the rest of your life. Only then do we begin to place a value on what you have lost and what you are owed.
Why You Need an Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer
Serious personal injuries can run the gamut from broken bones to organ damage, paralysis and loss of use of limbs, loss of vision or hearing, herniated discs, spinal cord damage, brain damage, severe burns, and more. These are the types of injuries that can severely impact your quality of life as well as your financial resources. Dealing with insurance companies on your own to get the compensation you need now and for the long term is not recommended. An insurance company’s main goal is to pay you as little as possible. Insurance company adjusters and representatives are trained to achieve the goal of minimizing settlements. That is why you need an experienced and aggressive attorney on your side whom they will respect and whom they know they can’t delude.
Our team is here to help you secure all of the damages and losses to which you are entitled and that are commensurate with your serious injuries. Depending on the facts of your case, they may include:
- Medical expenses, both past and predicted future, including medications, medical equipment, all treatments, and assistive therapies that you may need
- Loss of wages or income due to time away from work
- Out-of-pocket expenses related to your injuries
- The cost of any renovations to your home or vehicle to accommodate a disability
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of earning capacity
- Loss of consortium
You need someone with experience to ensure that you have what you need to live a comfortable and fulfilling future. You have our attention.
