Colorado Springs Catastrophic Injury Lawyer
Compensation for Permanently Debilitating and Life-Changing Injuries
Anyone who has been injured due to the negligence or wrongful actions of another person has a right to demand financial compensation by filing a claim for personal injury. This is particularly true, however, in cases in which the accident victim has suffered life-changing, catastrophic injuries. These types of personal injuries result in permanent, partial, or total disability or disfigurement, requiring ongoing medical treatment for the duration of the victim's life.
If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury, a crushed or severed limb, burn injuries, or a spinal cord injury, then you may never be able to return to work, resulting in the extreme difficulty or impossibility of supporting your family.
Similarly, a birth injury can mean that your child will never be fully self-sufficient. To make matters worse, you may be facing enormous medical bills for emergency treatment and hospitalization, and you might be wondering how you can possibly afford to pay for the reconstructive surgery or rehabilitative and ongoing care you will require to achieve the greatest possible recovery.
The costs of a catastrophic injury can be overwhelming. As an example of this, consider the fact that the CDC estimates the annual costs of caring for a person who has suffered a spinal cord injury at between $15,000 and $30,000, with lifetime costs ranging as high as $3 million.
These figures do not take into account the income lost due to partial or total disability. Fortunately, you may be able to recover an insurance settlement or jury verdict large enough to pay for your present and future medical needs. You will stand a better chance of obtaining more financial compensation if you are represented by a personal injury attorney in Colorado Springs than if you deal with a personal injury claim or lawsuit on your own.

Tell Us About Your Injury
The personal interest that we take in each of our clients goes above and beyond the general aspects that are addressed by many other law firms. At Clawson & Clawson, LLP our personal injury lawyers focus on developing a uniquely individualized approach for each client that we represent, paying particular attention to the intricate details of the injury from which you are suffering. Accordingly, we want to know all about your accident and the harm that resulted.
Some of the most common of catastrophic injuries include:
- Birth Injuries: Birth injuries are different from birth defects in that birth injuries can be avoided while birth defects are genetic problems that could not have been prevented. If your child was injured at birth or during the pregnancy, malpractice may be the cause. A catastrophic injury attorney from our firm should be contacted immediately.
- Brain Injuries: Traumatic brain injuries can be both mentally and physically debilitating given the fact that the brain facilitates many of an individual's bodily functions. Anything from minor confusion to full-blown memory loss can result from an accident that resulted in brain damage. If the accident was caused due to another person's reckless or negligent behaviors, then a catastrophic injury lawyer should be contacted immediately.
- Burn Injuries: Studies have found that approximately 20 Coloradoans die every year from burn injuries and hundreds more are hospitalized from burn-related harms. A third-degree burn could effectively inhibit your ability to function as well as you were once able, making this type of injury catastrophic in nature. An attorney should be involved in your case if you wish to seek compensation.
The above list is not limited to the types of cases that we handle. Therefore, we encourage you to communicate with us if you have been seriously injured in any other way, because we are more than prepared to represent cases of a different nature as well. Whether you are suffering from traumatic brain injury, a spinal cord injury, or something else, the Clawson & Clawson, LLP can be called upon for the professional legal advice and personal assistance that you need in your pursuit of compensation for your recovery.
