Do I Need a Denver Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer?

From minor to severe, spinal injuries can substantially and irrevocably impact the victim’s life, those who care for the victim, and those who depend on them. It’s hard to argue against that statement, but insurance companies will try anyway.

Picture a young man, athletic and physically active, is out for a weekend in the mountains with his friends. They just purchased off-road vehicles and packed them with camping gear, hiking, and fishing equipment. As they navigate winding and hilly paths, his UTV catches a rock and tumbles end over end out of control. The seatbelt: didn’t hold him tight to the vehicle. The roll cage crumbled under the force of each impact. His spine was significantly damaged. His diagnosis: quadriplegia, likely permanent.

Or a mother who is driving home from the grocery store. As she glances in the mirror at her snoozing toddler, she barely sees the car before impact. It feels like he could have been going a hundred even though it was only 10 miles per hour. Everyone is shaken but thinks they’re okay. Vehicle damage is minimal. They exchange information, call the police to report the incident, and go about the rest of their day. The following morning, Mom wakes up with a stiff neck. Medical evaluation reveals she has suffered whiplash – an injury that may resolve over time or may linger indefinitely. For the time being, though, she can’t lift over 20 pounds. Her daughter weighs 19.

Compensation for Spinal Injuries

Those who have suffered a spinal injury understand the desperate need for adequate care, regardless of the severity. Expenses resulting from the initial injury, physical therapy, and surgeries will have quickly piled up. Current treatment and therapy is lingering and uncertainty about how long and what type of care will be needed in the future is intimidating.

How Long Do I Have to File a Spinal Injury Claim?

In every case we take on, our goal is the full application of a victim’s rights and recovery under Colorado legislation and precedents established by case law. Varying limits may apply if malice or fraud were involved (3-year limit in accordance with § 13-80-101), assault was the cause of the injury (1-year limit in accordance with § 13-80-103), or the injury occurred due to the use or operation of a motor vehicle (3-year limit under § 13-80-101). Take a proactive approach and work with an attorney so the statute of limitations does not pass.

Keys for a Successful Spine Injury Case

  • First, experience in all relevant areas of practice – workplace injury, car, truck, and motorcycle accident, medical malpractice, and product liability to name a few.
  • Second, intimate knowledge of insurance companies – how they operate and what games they play. How they argue against compensation.
  • And third, a clear understanding of spinal injury care – past, present, and future.
