Accidents happen every day. Sometimes through no one’s fault, but oftentimes through the negligence of others. A spine or back injury is a type of injury that is commonplace in an auto accident or a fall. You may be so caught up in pain and treatment for your injury that you don’t fully understand your rights under Colorado law.
You have the right to receive prompt medical attention for your injury to minimize any further damage to the spine or back.
