Types of Injuries in Accidents a Denver Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer Can Help With

Virtually any type of injury is possible in a traffic crash. Injuries suffered can be minor, serious, catastrophic, or fatal. Some of the most common types of injuries in motor vehicle accidents include:

  • Head and brain injuries: A head or brain injury can occur without loss of consciousness. Concussions have many symptoms and may need immediate attention. The Sawaya Law Firm has years of experience in head trauma cases.
  • Neck injuries: These can occur in the form of whiplash or neck strain or more serious injuries, such as cervical dislocation or damage to the cervical discs.
  • Back injuries: Sprains, strains, herniated discs, and fractured vertebrae are common injuries to the lower back in auto accidents.
  • Spinal cord injuries: When displaced bone fragments, ligaments, or disc material tear into or bruise the spinal cord, it can destroy nerve cells that carry signals through the spinal cord between the brain and the rest of the body, often resulting in paralysis below the level of the injury.
  • Internal injuries: The impact of a collision can injure internal organs, such as the kidneys, liver, spleen, heart, and bowels. It can also fracture ribs, which can puncture the lungs and other organs. Internal injuries are serious and require emergency medical treatment.
  • Facial injuries: The face can be injured by impact with the steering wheel, dashboard, airbag, windshield, side window, and other parts of a vehicle, or lacerated by shattered glass. Common facial injuries in automobile accidents include scrapes, bruises, fractures, lacerations, and serious jaw and dental injuries.

Damages in Motor Vehicle Accidents

If someone else caused your traffic accident and injuries, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your losses.

When you contact our firm for a free case consultation, a Denver motor vehicle accident lawyer
can advise you of the damages you may be entitled to claim. Depending on the circumstances in your particular case, your damages may include property damage, present and future medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, and pain and suffering, among other damages.

Our Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers Serve Denver, Greeley and All of Colorado

At one time, Colorado was a “no-fault” auto insurance state, which meant that your own insurance company would pay for your accident, regardless of who was at fault. However, in recent years, auto insurance tort reform has made motor vehicle accident cases more complex, and it can be difficult to know who will pay for what, and how much.

At The Sawaya Law Firm, our Colorado motor vehicle accident lawyers are well-versed in the laws governing auto accident cases, and we can steer your case through the confusion of the insurance system. Contact our firm today for legal representation in your motor vehicle accident case.
