Car Accidents

Within seconds, a car accident can cause severe injuries and other damage. In the worst cases, this harm can have long-term (if not lifelong) impacts on victims.

Knowing what to do after an auto wreck occurs, however, can help victims protect themselves, as well as their rights to recovery. It can also be the key to ensuring victims are able to obtain the full amount of compensation they deserve for their injuries, vehicle damage, lost wages and other accident-related losses.

Truck Accidents

Truck wrecks can have catastrophic outcomes, especially when small vehicles are involved. Although any number of factors can contribute to truck crashes, when truckers’ misbehaviors or reckless actions are involved, these motorists – and possibly the carriers that employ them – can be liable.

Insurance Bad Faith

Insurance companies do not always honor the policies they issue. In some cases, insurers may even take special steps to try to compromise policyholders’ rights, looking for any reason to undercut (or outright deny) valid claims.

From post-claim underwriting to selectively evaluating the evidence provided, insurance bad faith tactics can vary widely – and understanding just what these tactics are can be essential to protecting your rights and claims when it’s time to financially recover from an accident, injury or disaster.

Premises Liability

Slip and falls, electrocutions, elevator accidents and other incidents can – and commonly do – happen on others’ properties. When these accidents are caused by another party’s failures to maintain safe premises, injured people can be entitled to compensation for the harm and losses they have suffered.

Product Liability

Medical devices, toys, auto parts and various other products should be tested for safety and effectiveness before they are ever brought to market.

The unfortunate reality, however, is that manufacturers and corporations often cut corners, and faulty or dangerous products all-to-often make their way into the hands of the public.

When any type of defective product causes accidents and injuries, negligent corporations can be accountable for victims’ medical bills, suffering and other losses.

Medical Negligence & Malpractice

We rely on doctors, nurses and other medical professionals to provide us with high-quality, appropriate care when health issues arise. Tragically, however, healthcare professionals can overlook things, make poor decisions or even lack the experience (or training) necessary to deliver the right care to patients.

When this and other forms of medical negligence end up harming patients, victims will have options for fighting back, holding the negligent parties accountable, and securing justice.

Nursing Home Negligence

Nursing home neglect and abuse may be as prevalent and diverse as it is harmful to its victims. In fact, research indicates that at least 10 percent of nursing home residents are the targets of abuse or neglect while they live in these long-term care facilities.

Given that this abuse can come in various forms – ranging from physical and sexual abuse to psychological and financial abuse, being aware of the red flags of nursing home negligence is critical. This awareness can help families take immediate action to start fighting for justice when their loved ones have been victimized by any type of nursing home negligence.

Wrongful Death

The death of a loved one is inevitably difficult – if not devastating. Knowing that a death could have been prevented if someone else had been more responsible or careful can make the aftermath that much more intense and hard to bear.

In these cases, there is no amount of money that can ever change what happened or bring a loved one back.

Pursuing justice, however, through a wrongful death case can help families hold the negligent party (or parties) liable – and can help families secure the financial support that may be necessary to deal with grief and lay a loved one to rest (while avoiding any additional stresses).

SSDI Claims & Benefits

About 70 percent of federal disability claims are denied the first time they are filed with the Social Security Administration (SSA). While some of these denials result from incomplete applications or other mistakes applicants make, others arise from oversights or wrong decisions made by SSA officials.

The good news, however, is that there’s a lot that applicants can do to:

  • Position first-time claims for approval (while minimizing any possible delays or hiccups in the process)
  • Fight wrongful denials, as well as wrongful terminations, of benefits when these decisions have stemmed from misinterpretations of the evidence, mistakes, etc.

Workers Compensation

Intended to protect and support workers, the Colorado workers’ compensation system can be challenging to navigate, especially when injured workers are trying to recover from serious injuries. What can make matters worse is:

  • Having to deal with insurance companies, strict deadlines and other administrative issues
  • Knowing that any possible misstep along the way can lead to a reduction or denial of benefits.

While all of this can make it difficult for injured workers’ to successfully pursue workers compensation benefits, there are steps that workers can take to protect their rights and make sure they obtain the full amount of benefits they deserve.
