- Car Accident
Auto accidents disrupt people’s lives. Injuries require medical treatment. Medical bills accumulate. Days and hours are lost from work. Car damage needs to be repaired. Automobile insurance and health insurance must be coordinated. Liens are sometimes needed for doctor visits. Victims of car accidents are often called by insurance adjusters immediately after their accident. Assistance is frequently needed dealing with the insurance companies and the disruptions.
- Truck Accident
Semi-trailer trucks, also known as “tractor-trailers” and “18-wheelers” are an integral part of the country’s commercial transportation network and are a constant presence on the road. Many of these vehicles weigh upwards of 80,000 lbs, and may be transporting fuel or hazardous chemicals. Each year, thousands of these semi-trailer trucks are involved in crashes on federal and state roads. Unfortunately, many of these crashes result in serious injuries and fatalities to other motorists. Often times, the collisions occur due to the reckless and careless conduct of the drivers or the companies that employ them.
- Bicycle Accident
The bicycle accident attorneys at McCormick & Murphy understand what it is like to have to deal with careless drivers, and more importantly, the insurance companies of careless drivers. They, their families and friends are bicyclists. The bicycle accident lawyers at McCormick & Murphy have represented many Coloradans who have been seriously hurt by negligent drivers. They understand that motorists oftentimes try to blame the cyclists just because they are on a bike. They understand what battles must often be fought with insurance companies and others to get a reasonable settlement.
- Motorcycle Accident
Motorcycle accidents produce more serious injuries and deaths than any other form of vehicular accident. This hard truth is why it is critical that, if you have been in a motorcycle accident, you not only know your rights, but also hire experienced and proven Colorado Motorcycle Accident attorneys who will fight to get you every bit of compensation that you need to get your life back on track.
- Wrongful Death
Wrongful death occurs when a person is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another person, company or entity. The tragic and unexpected death of a loved one often leads to emotional and financial stress, including feelings of sorrow, loneliness, despair, uncertainty, as well as loss of financial support, loss of earnings, loss of household services, and overwhelming debts. Colorado law recognizes the extraordinary impact of such a loss and provides a legal remedy to the surviving spouse, children, and parents of the deceased.
- Dog Bite
A dog attack may last only a few seconds, but the physical and emotional scars can last a lifetime. Colorado law allows a victim of a dog bite, under certain circumstances, to recover for damages for injuries caused by a dog whether or not that dog has previously bitten others or shown signs of being vicious. There is often insurance coverage available to satisfy claims made against dog owners.
- Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI’s) can happen anywhere. A TBI is an injury to the brain caused by the head being hit by something or shaken violently. It can occur on the job site, on the playground, from a falling object, or in car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle or skiing accident. All it takes is one horrible moment in your life – or the life of a loved one – to be forever and traumatically changed. This injury can change how a person acts, moves, and thinks.
- Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injury results from direct, external physical harm or indirect harm to the spinal column, back or neck. Direct external harm can involve a severed cord, crushed cord, compression injuries, or vertebral dislocation/fracture; indirect harm typically involves compression resulting from adjacent hemorrhage, disturbance in blood supply resulting in infarction, or hemorrhagic applied pressure. Whatever the mechanism of injury, the result is usually paraplegia or quadriplegia.
- Slip and Fall
Experienced Colorado Slip and Fall Lawyers
Injuries due to dangerous conditions happen all the time. When you’re doing something as ordinary as shopping in the supermarket or walking up an apartment complex stairway, you don’t expect to get injured. Many Colorado residents find themselves unnecessarily injured because of the neglect of property owners and managers. Many times, tripping, slipping and falling cause very serious injuries. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries as a result of a trip, slip or fall accident on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation.
- Nursing Home Abuse
Federal and Colorado state laws protect nursing home residents. The Federal Nursing Home Reform Act created a national minimum set of standards of care and rights for people living in certified nursing / long term care facilities. It provides that all residents of nursing homes are entitled to receive quality care and live in an environment that improves or maintains the quality of their physical and mental health. This entitlement includes freedom from neglect and freedom from abuse.
- Insurance Bad Faith
People buy insurance policies for the financial security and peace of mind obtained by protecting themselves from unforeseen injuries, calamities and financial losses. When personal injuries, property damage, or liability exposure arises from an auto accident, a fire, a natural disaster, or other insured event, people turn to their insurance company for protection and expect to receive the benefits they paid for under their insurance policy.
