Denver Personal Injury AttorneyPersonal injury can mean a lot. In fact, it can mean so much that you might not even realize when you have a case on your hands. Luckily we have the info you need to know if you should get a consultation of a Denver Personal Injury Attorney

Auto Accident

This is the most common type of personal injury accidents and also the most costly. Automobile accidents include motorcycles, cars, and trucks, anything you drive. The key to an auto accident is that you have been injured and were not at fault for the accident. Beyond that there may be different laws in your specific state that dictate a personal case and how much compensation you can hope to get for it. You need to do research and seek out a consultation of a Denver car accident lawyer

Slip & Fall or On-site Injury 

If you’re on public or private property and are injured, you’ve got yourself a personal injury case most likely. The most common of these types of cases is called slip & fall which usually involves some form of unmarked hazard (such as wet or uneven floor) causes an injury to you. 

Dog Bites

If someone’s dog bites you, you have the right to hold them accountable and have them pay any medical costs that come with treating the wound or getting necessary rabies shots. Dog bites can be dangerous. Be warned though, in some states even a single biting incident could result in the animal being euthanized if you attempt to seek legal justice. It’s best to have a conversation with a lawyer about your case before making any decisions. 

Medical Malpractice 

Sometimes the treatment for something becomes worse than the injury or condition itself because of someone’s neglect or malpractice. Doctors take an oath to do no harm but it doesn’t always work out that way. If you are injured as a result of a medical professional’s negligence–such as a misdiagnosis, lack of care for bedsores, unsanitary conditions, a botched procedure–you may have a medical malpractice case on your hand. Common cases in this vein are issues of neglect in long term care facilities. 

Wrongful Death

The next step up from medical malpractice is a wrongful death case, though it does not always have to involve medical professionals. While a loved one’s death from a botched surgery or a misdiagnosis or neglect qualifies, you may also have a case if your loved one died as a result of an unsafe environment (such as a construction site) where the area was unmarked.
