Burn Injuries

Turn your narrative from one of a “burn injury victim” to that of a “survivor” when you work with a personal injury attorney to get the compensation you need for your well-being and future. Serious burn injuries can leave permanent scars for some, limited use of injured arms, hands and legs, and in the worst cases, loss of life. When an accident leaves you with burn injuries, you may have suffered first-, second-, third-, or even fourth-degree burns, along with potential inhalation injuries in some cases along with PTSD.

Depending on the gravity of the situation, you may deal with these injuries for the rest of your life. You’ll experience intense pain, along with painful, expensive treatments and therapies that may go on for years. Again, depending on the severity of the burns, you may experience everything from disfigurement and scarring to loss of fingers or toes, nose or ears, and loss of mobility and function. In addition to all of this, many burn victims experience PTSD for years as a result of the trauma.

Our personal injury attorneys are experienced in handling burn injury cases, including understanding the sensitive nature of them for both victims and their families. When our injury attorneys work on your burn injury case, we will work hard to get compensation for everything from current and future medical bills to retraining for job performance, pain and suffering, future permanent scarring, and innovative burn injury treatments.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are life-changing in more ways than you may have ever imagined. These injuries typically start with a blow that fractures or dislocates your vertebrae. Often, these injuries will result in partial or full paralysis. Our injury attorneys have extensive experience with handling spinal cord injury claims and can help you know exactly what you could potentially get compensation for. For example, you may need compensation for any of the following reasons:

  • Pay for medical treatment
  • Relearn everyday skills or adapt them to your new abilities
  • Modify your home, workplace, and vehicle
  • Pay for a lifetime of specialized medical care

Spinal cord injury victims typically experience many health problems. These can include complications with the bladder and bowels, reduced ability to regulate body temperature, inability to regulate blood pressure, decreased resistance to respiratory complications, and chronic pain. Your current medical care, of course, doesn’t take care of problems that could ensue in the future; because of this, your compensation should look at future costs and care and not just the present situation.

Our personal injury attorneys will use all of our resources to assist you with your everyday needs while we work on your case. In addition to this, our injury lawyers will employ and consult with rehabilitation physicians, psychologists, neurosurgeons, and other distinguished experts in order to have a better idea of what your long-term prognosis will be and how your personal injury claim can account for this.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can influence you for the rest of your life. The brain is incredibly complex matter, which can make recovery from a TBI even more difficult. Here at Metier Law Firm, our brain injury lawyers have helped clients throughout Colorado get the compensation they deserve following a TBI.

Symptoms of traumatic brain injuries include the following:

  • Balance problems
  • Changes in vision
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Dizziness
  • Memory problems
  • Paralysis
  • Poor attention span
  • Poor judgment
  • Slowed thought processing speed
  • Slurred speech

As you navigate personal injury claims and personal injury settlements with a TBI, the process can become even more confusing, hurtful, and hard to comprehend. Our injury attorneys can help. We see personal injury law firms lack the resources and experience necessary to take on a case as serious as one involving a traumatic brain injury. However, this is not the case with Metier Law Firm. Our personal injury attorneys have extensive experience and knowledge regarding TBI cases and are skilled at presenting the complex medical and legal issues involved in an appropriate, succinct, and concise way to a jury or judge.

Wrongful Death

One of the most difficult areas our personal injury attorneys deal with is wrongful death. There is nothing as bitter as a loved one being taken from you too soon for all the wrong reasons. While we can attempt to understand what you’re going through — and we have experienced this with many clients — this is a journey in which you may feel very alone.

Each state has its own wrongful death statute, and wrongful death law in general varies from state to state. Here in Colorado, our injury attorneys are well-versed in state laws. As hard as we work for you and your family during a wrongful death case, we also know that no amount of money — no matter how large — will bring your loved one back; however, we’ll do all we possibly can to get your family the compensation you deserve to attempt and bring even a measure of closure and justice. Following the wrongful death of a loved one, you undoubtedly have immediate economic concerns. We will fight for financial compensation for not only these, but also for your family’s future financial well-being. In addition to this, our injury lawyers will work hard to help you recover damages for pain and suffering, loss of companionship and love, and unpaid medical and burial bills. We know this isn’t how you anticipated things would work out for your family, but our personal injury attorneys will be right there to support you through the difficult time and to help you prepare and plan for your future.
