You can receive monetary compensation for a spinal cord injury if you’re hurt because of the actions of others. Usually, the standard is showing that the injury occurs because someone else fails to live up to a reasonable standard of behavior. Intentional misconduct is not required; being responsible for an accident is usually sufficient. A lack of ordinary, reasonable care based on the specific situation is enough for the victim to receive monetary compensation for a spinal cord injury.

The specifics of whether you have a strong case and the value of the case depend on a number of factors. Legal defenses, comparative negligence and the ability of the other party to pay a judgment all play into whether you can receive monetary compensation. You must properly file a case by the time deadline so be sure to contact a Colorado Springs spinal cord injury lawyer as soon as possible.

There are many causes of spinal cord injuries:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck, motorcycle, bicycle and pedestrian accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Falls from elevated heights including ladders
  • Objects falling from overhead; trips from objects left in a pedestrian area
  • Accidents with tools, machinery and equipment
  • Lifting accidents
  • Work accidents including construction, stuck between accidents and heavy machinery
  • Failing to follow instructions, warning signs and notifications
  • Lack of personal protective equipment

It’s okay if you don’t know the cause of an accident right away or who might be to blame. Let our Colorado Springs spinal cord injury lawyers investigate on your behalf.

A spinal cord injury lawsuit is a personal injury claim. It’s a civil claim where the victim alleges that the defendant is to blame for the accident and their injuries. There is no prosecutor involved, and the victim may have their own attorneys represent them.

The victim gathers the evidence and presents their theory of the case. The parties may have a jury trial. Because it is a civil trial, jail time for the defendant is not the remedy. Rather, a spinal cord injury lawsuit is the kind that may result in financial compensation for the victim.

The types of compensation that a victim may receive in a spinal cord injury case include:

  • Cost of emergency medical treatment
  • Long-term medical care needs
  • Wheelchairs and other mobility devices
  • Home modifications
  • Caregiving including nursing and personal caregiving
  • Rehabilitative treatment; physical and occupational therapy
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional health treatment
  • Mental health damages and treatment expenses
  • Property damage
  • Short-term and long-term lost wages and income
  • Punitive damages
  • Court costs and attorney fees

What you receive in compensation depends on the injuries you have, the type of legal fault that the defendant has and the nature of their conduct. It’s important not to overlook categories of damages, like pain and suffering, that can significantly increase the value of a claim. Our Colorado Springs spinal cord injury lawyers work diligently in order to include all categories of compensation for each victim.

Victims rightfully want to know what to expect in bringing a spinal cord injury lawsuit. To receive financial compensation, you must show who is responsible for your injuries, what injuries you have, and what those injuries are worth from a legal standpoint. That means gathering proof of each item. Our lawyers work to gather medical records, witness testimony and other evidence as needed to prove the case.

Although you file your claim in court, most spinal cord injury cases do not go to trial. That’s because we work diligently ahead of trial to build a strong case. Then, we rely on the strength of your case to negotiate an effective resolution. Our team gives you honest, clear advice about whether it’s best to take your case to trial or accept a settlement. Ultimately, the choice is up to you. In all cases, we work diligently until you have justice.

There are several kinds of spinal cord injuries:

  • Cervical
  • Thoracic
  • Lumbar
  • Sacral

Damage to the spinal cord may be complete or incomplete. Tetraplegia, paraplegia, quadriplegia or triplegia may result.
