A catastrophic injury never happens when we expect it — nevertheless it can change our lives forever. Many Colorado accident victims are left disabled and unable to work for the rest of their lives. When you add the enormous cost of medical care to the difficult reality of being permanently disabled, you have a seriously difficult financial circumstance on your hands.
In many cases, an “accident” is nothing more than that — a difficult circumstance that isn’t anyone’s fault. Even though it has had a permanent and difficult effect on the victim’s life, the incident cannot be blamed on anyone else. That said, there are circumstances when accidents are directly caused by another party’s negligence, unlawful behavior or recklessness. Such instances might involve things like:
- Medical malpractice
- Car accidents
- Drunk driving
- Faulty and dangerous products
- Slip and fall events
- Animal attacks
- Many other circumstances
When another party is at fault for an accident that resulted in your serious injuries, chances are this party needs to pay for the costs associated with your medical care — and even compensate you for your permanent disabilities. The process of holding the negligent party financially liable usually requires complicated — and sometimes long, drawn-out legal proceedings. Therefore, if you plan to move forward with a personal injury lawsuit, you may want to have a qualified attorney on your side.
