What Compensation Can You Collect From a National Park Injury Claim?

If you have been hurt while visiting a national park and someone else was responsible for these injuries in some way, you may be eligible for compensation. Depending on your circumstances, you can collect financial recovery for your economic and non-economic losses. Qualifying losses may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Medical bills, past and future
  • Lost wages and reduced wage-earning capacity
  • Disability costs
  • Court costs and attorney fees
  • Wrongful death
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium or companionship
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Scarring and disfigurement

Other losses may qualify for compensation, so we encourage you to seek legal support and representation. A lawyer from Mintz Law Firm can help you identify eligible losses, determine the value of your claim, and maximize the compensation you can receive for your suffering. 

Who is Responsible for Injuries at a National Park in Colorado?

Many people may be liable for your losses depending on the circumstances surrounding your incident. In some cases, more than one individual might be responsible, meaning each of these should be held accountable for their actions. The following individuals might be liable for your losses:

  • State or other governmental entities
  • Other park visitors
  • Vehicle drivers
  • Employees or maintenance workers for the park
  • Part, vehicle, or other equipment manufacturers

Other parties may also be liable, but we can help you determine who is most likely to be responsible for your losses. Feel free to contact Mintz Law Firm for support. We want to ensure you receive excellent representation during this difficult time.
