Catastrophic Injury

The catastrophic Injury attorneys at Cook, Bradford & Levy have been representing those who have been seriously injured in Colorado for over 40 years. We handle cases involving serious personal injuries in Boulder and throughout the state of Colorado. Serious catastrophic injury often occur when the negligence of another harms the victim in such a way that the victim requires surgery or suffers a permanent life changing injury. Examples of catastrophic injuries that the attorneys at Cook, Bradford and Levy handle include:

Traumatic Brain Injuries: Often referred to as the unseen injury, traumatic brain injuries often occur in auto accidents and skiing accidents. A slip and fall is another common cause of a traumatic brain injury in Colorado. Often, long term care is required for any severe traumatic brain injury and it causes great financial stress upon the injured victim’s family. These injuries can negatively affect every aspect of the victim’s life.

Spinal Cord Injuries: Our injury lawyers handled hundreds of injuries to the back and neck. Spinal Cord injuries involve fractured vertebrae and disc injuries. In Colorado car accidents, neck and back injuries are typical. Serious injury to the neck and back can result in chronic severe pain, damage to the nerves, or even loss of use of the arms or legs. A possible result of a serious spinal cord injury is paraplegia. These injuries can require a lifetime of care and it is important to have a catastrophic injury lawyer to help with your claim.

Burn Injuries: Severe burns forever alter the life of a victim and can cause permanent scarring. These scars cause damage to the victim’s self-image as well. Burn injuries are often caused in car accidents, building fires, electrical accidents, and truck accidents. Our lawyers represent burn victims throughout the state of Colorado, including Boulder and Denver.

Any one of these injuries can be life changing for you and your family. You need a catastrophic injury attorney on your side to navigate through the difficult claim process. Insurance companies earn millions in profit each year by paying less than the full value of catastrophic injury claims. Worse, they often delay payment for no good reason other than to hold on to their money and earn interest while the injured victim is out in the cold. Don’t let this happen to you. Arm yourself with information and speak with a catastrophic injury attorney about your case.

Sometimes catastrophic injuries occur when alcohol or drugs are involved which seriously impair the persons ability to drive or operate machinery. Our catastrophic injury lawyers understand how devastating injuries from motor vehicle accidents can be. We level the playing field for our clients against these large insurance companies and fight for them after a serious injury occurs. Our catastrophic injury attorneys will work to protect your legal rights and aggressively pursue compensation of your behalf.

When alcohol is involved, the people or businesses who served alcoholic beverages to a drunk driver may also be legally responsible for the damages caused by the drunk driver. In Colorado, the law permits catastrophic injury attorneys to file a lawsuit against those who are responsible for contributing to a drunk driving accident by over-serving an obviously intoxicated person.

If you are trying to recover compensation from your catastrophic injury, the Boulder catastrophic injury lawyers at Cook, Bradford & Levy may be able to represent you. We also serve people in Lafayette, Denver, Louisville, Arvada, Aurora, Fort Collins, and throughout the Front Range. Contact us at 303-543-1000 or via our online form for a free consultation.

Client Reviews
“I was rear ended by a driver on his cell phone. I started with another attorney, but was not receiving adequate attention to my case. I switched to Brian and everything changed. He was attentive to my situation, listened to all I had to say, and worked to resolve my case in a timely fashion. He continued to communicate and touch base even during slow parts of the process. After the settlement was resolved, he has still reached out to check in on my health and well being. I would highly recommend Brian Bradford as a lawyer.” Randy
“A driver trying to get away from the police ran a red light and broadsided my car. My injuries affected me physically, emotionally and organizationally. Hiring Steve Cook allowed me to focus on healing while ALL the legal Issues were effectively handled by his firm. Steve's patience, honest, determination. competence and experienced evaluation of my case resulted in a great settlement without having to go to trial.” Shirley
“I was injured in a car accident and I was having a hard time getting much of a response from the insurance companies. I never thought I would resort to calling an attorney, but I am so happy that I did, and that Jason Levy was that attorney. He was respectful, knowledgeable, and kind. When I was healing from major surgery, he arranged for my deposition to take place all the way out in Harford County, at a library near my home, rather than having me come into the city. He was also very persistent with the other driver's insurance company, finally negotiating an excellent settlement” Kate
