Spinal Cord Injury

What Is a Spinal Cord Injury Claim?

A spinal cord injury claim is the action that a victim takes to receive a monetary payment for their injuries and suffering. Under Colorado law, the person who is responsible for the accident must pay for the fallout. This means covering the financial expenses, as well as compensation for emotional damages and physical suffering. A spinal cord injury claim is the process of holding the responsible party accountable for their negligence. The Elite Litigation Group is a select team of highly focused and experienced trial attorneys. We exclusively handle complex personal injury cases, including spinal cord injuries, and are with you every step of the way. We know nothing can undo what happened, but we can fight for the financial relief you need to support your recovery and your family.

Do I Have a Spinal Cord Injury Claim?

You may be able to bring a spinal cord injury claim if you suffered the injury because of the carelessness of others. Negligence is usually the basis of the claim. That means that another party failed to act with reasonable care in a way that caused the accident to happen. If you can prove the elements of negligence – duty of care to others, failure to live up to that duty, cause of an accident and damages – you can bring a spinal cord injury claim.
